Some restaurants do stay open on Thanksgiving. Here’s the ones I know about so far:
- Black Point Inn, noon – 4 pm, $70 for adults, $35 for children
- Eastland Park Hotel, $26 for adults, $22, for seniors, $13 for children
- Eves at the Garden, $38 for adults, $19 for children
- North Star Music Cafe is holding a Thanksgiving potluck
- Sea Glass Restaurant at the Inn by the Sea, 12:30 – 4:30, $65 for adults, $20 for children
- Twenty Milk Street at the Regency
- Verrillo’s, $16.95 for adults, $12.95 for seniors, $7.95 for children
There are also several vendors are selling pies, cakes and even entire meals to take home:
- Aurora Provisions is selling a full dinner for two, $68
- Aunt Dee’s is selling apple, pumpkin, squash and pecan pies
- Cakes Extraordinaire, is offering a free pumpkin pie with every pie purchase
- Rosemont Market, pre-order your locally raise turkey by Nov 20, they’re also selling pies, rolls, quick breads, cranberry sauce, a stuffing mix, gravy, herb butters, etc.
- Leavitt and Sons is “offering side dish catering (everything but the bird)”
- Standard Baking on Commercial Street, Scratch Baking in South Portland, and many of the other bakeries in the area are good sources for pies, breads, etc. They probably produce some holiday themed options in addition to their usual offerings.
- Black Tie Bistro is “offering everything from fully stuffed and cooked birds, to all the side dishes and trimmings. Desserts from bread puddings to classic pies, everything from scratch and available to pick up.”
UPDATE: The Press Herald has also published a list of sources for Thanksgiving, pies, side dishes, etc and it includes a number of options not already listed above as well as additional details on the ones that are.
Is there a local restaurant, market or bakery that’s missing? Post a comment and I’ll add them to the list.
