Thanksgiving Dinner

Me and my family are planning on visiting Washington Depot on Thanksgiving and we can't find any restaurants that'll be open for Thanksgiving dinner. Any suggestions?

I can check to see what restaurants will be open in the New Milford-Danbury area. Would that area of the state work for you?

If you want something different and don't mind crowds and some driving, you could head up to Plimouth Plantation in Plymouth Mass and have the Thanksgiving buffet where it all started.

Did you try GW Tavern? It is lovely, but I'n not sure if it's open for Thanksgiving dinner. I know that the Fife and Drum in Kent serves Thanksgiving dinner, and it is wonderful. It is maybe a 20 minute drive from the depot. Bulls Bridge Inn in Kent may be open also. If you need me to check let me know.
