Thanksgiving in Orlando 2018

Here are a list of Restaurants open for Thanksgiving in Orlando this 2018!

This Thanksgiving, Tapa Toro and Taverna Opa are inviting you to forget the turkey and try out these main courses instead!

On Thursday, November 22, Taverna Opa will trade in turkey for lamb and late night dancing. The restaurant will be serving a Greek-style prix fixe feast from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m. Guests will have the option to indulge in the prix fixe menu, which at $25 per person includes an appetizer, entree, and dessert, or order from the restaurant’s regular menu. This year’s special menu includes:

  • Appetizer: Horiatiki Salad, Spanakopita, or Keftedes
  • Entree: Chicken, Beef, or Lamb
  • Dessert: Loukoumades (Greek donuts with spiced-honey syrup!)

Celebrating the lifestyle and gastronomy of Greece, guests will revel in evening performances including Zorba line dancing, napkin showers, and belly dancing, while an in-house DJ spins Greek classics and today’s hits.

If lamb isn’t your thing, Tapa Toro will spice things up with a $27, prix fixe three-course dinner featuring white bean soup made with pork belly, sausage, chorizo, scallion oil and smoked paprika as the first course; carved porchetta served with chorizo stuffing and maple-glazed Brussels sprouts as the second course; and to top things off, a cranberry-orange tart made with sweet butter crust, cranberries and chantilly cream. Guests will be transported to the electrifying streets of Spain, as they experience captivating flamenco performers trained in the Barcelona-style dance, snapping castanets and whipping their ruffled dresses to the beat. The restaurant will be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Every year on Thanksgiving Day, Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant offers its table-service Traditional Thanksgiving Dinner all day long.
