Nashville Restaurants Open on Thanksgiving

Posted By on Thu, Nov 22, 2012 at 10:33 AM

Sleep too late? Dog eat the turkey? This week's Scene offers a list of restaurants that are open Thanksgiving day. A sample:

• At the Hermitage Hotel's Capitol Grille (345-7116), Chef Tyler Brown delivers a tantalizing spread of smoked Niman Ranch steamship ham with house-made apple butter and cider glaze; Ashley Farms Heritage Breed turkey with giblet gravy, cranberry and kumquat preserve; and a Tennessee wagyu beef steamship with horseradish crème fraiche and red wine jus. Sides include macaroni and Tennessee cheddar cheese, roasted sweet potatoes and red onion crumble, and brioche stuffing with foraged mushroom, leeks and bacon. $46.50 per adult for brunch, $26.50 per child under 12.

• At the other end of the dining spectrum — our end — Cracker Barrel serves up Thanksgiving dinner for $8.99 per person ($4.69 for kids) starting at 11 a.m. Choose from baked ham, sweet potato casserole, cranberry relish, your choice of vegetable, a beverage and made-from-scratch biscuits or corn muffins, with pumpkin-pecan streusel pie for dessert. Or serve up to six with Thanksgiving takeout for $54.99 — just make sure you give 24 hours' notice.

• Tennessee bourbon scallops and roasted pear bisque — beats grazing on maize, eh? Give the tryptophans a rest at the Hutton Hotel's 1808 Grille (340-0012) in favor of entrees such as bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin with apple brandy reduction ($25), lamb meatballs ($25), and spiced Moroccan halibut ($23).

See the whole list here. And please report back if you try any of these options. Happy Thanksgiving!
