Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Due to new restrictions across Los Angeles County, restaurants will not be permitted to open for onsite dining this Thanksgiving. The new ban on dine-in service, even patio seating, goes into effect at 10pm on Wednesday, November 25, and will last for at least three weeks. Find more on the county's new restrictions here.
While the turkey-happy holiday will certainly look and feel different this year, a few L.A. restaurants are opening up their patios for a distanced and alfresco Thanksgiving dinner, lunch or brunch for a bit of normalcy and cooking reprieve. Forget the hours spent tending to the turkey and heating up your house in this unseasonably warm November—instead, take advantage of the temperate evenings and spend the holiday on a patio with pies, prix-fixe menus, family-style feasts—whether it be turkey-centric, vegetarian or even vegan. No matter what you’re looking for, you’ll find it here—just like you’ll find a clean, unused kitchen when you return home.
