Leave the Dishes Behind! Newport Beach Restaurants that are serving Thanksgiving Dinner

November 15, 2018

And just like that, Thanksgiving 2018 is upon us! The amazing thing about Thanksgiving is you have the option to cook a feast or, go out and leave the cooking to someone else! Yes! Because the holidays are the best time of year but can also be stressful; so, we’ve curated a list of restaurants serving a special Thanksgiving menu so all you have to worry about is rounding up the crew to enjoy the feast and deciding where to eat!

Current Coastal Cuisine

Current Coastal Cuisine is offering up the ultimate Thanksgiving buffet. With offerings like fresh made salads, artisan breads, a breakfast and pasta station; or, a hot food bar with options like Yukon Gold mashed potatoes, baked macaroni and cheese AND a carving board station! Also, don’t forget desserts as you will have every opportunity to keep filling your plate up. Reservations are required to make ‘em fast!

Five Crowns

Celebrate this Thanksgiving like royalty at Five Crowns with world-class menu offerings like oven roasted free range turkey paired with stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, buttered Blue Lake green beans, and house made cranberry compote. If you’re more of a prime rib type of person look no further with their prime rib of beef served in the traditional manner with au jus alongside yorkshire pudding, organic whipped cream horseradish and your choice of a side. OR, enjoy the best of both worlds with turkey and prime rib because it’s Thanksgiving after all!

The Winery Restaurant & Wine Bar

Have your wine and enjoy it too…sitting, eating, indulging…NOT cooking and cleaning up! The Winery has a three course Thanksgiving meal of your dreams! Start with a choice of roasted butternut squash bisque, pumpkin and ricotta ravioli or organic heirloom tomatoes and fresh burrata. Then move to the main course with options like traditional maple glazed free range turkey, king salmon “a la Plancha”, grilled beef flatiron steak or main scallops and jumbo wild white shrimp.

Waterline Newport Beach
