60 more Chicagoland restaurants serving Thanksgiving dinner

Doesn’t anybody stay home for Thanksgiving?

Is there anyone left cooking Thanksgiving dinner at home? Most restaurants used to close on Thanksgiving, but no more.

Last week I ran a list of 25 Chicagoland restaurants serving Thanksgiving dinner and apparently only scratched the surface. I’ve heard from dozens more Chicago and suburban restaurants that will be open on Thanksgiving.

So here are 60 more Thanksgiving dinner options. They range from vegetarian dinner at Dharma Garden to Indian-inspired Thanksgiving at Vermilion to bargain all-you-can-eat buffets at Czerwone Jabluszko to floating Thanksgiving dinner cruises on the Spirit of Chicago, from the North Side to the South Side and all around the suburbs. Most places require reservations, but if you’re at a loss for holiday plans, call today and you’ll still have a wide choice.
