Do you know of any Thanksgiving Day Brunch or Dinner locations in Westchester area?
I know hotels offer this but any restaurants you can recommend that won’t break the bank like Castle on the hudson?
thanks,

I was wondering this myself. If you’re a restaurant, why don’t you post your Thanksgiving information below? If I get enough, we might be able to pull together a story for the newspaper, too.

Share.

  3. I cant think of any others that are opened and not a fortune but wanted to say that we catered our Thanksgiving from Epsteins Hartsdale last year and it was wonderful.. we will be doing it again this year!

  4. The Porter House in Montvale (just over the border in Nj, right next to Pearl River) has always been open in the past for Thanksgiving and I am pretty sure they will too this year as well. It is very cozy with the fireplaces and the food is excellent. Staff is very friendly. Ask for Patrick. He will set you up with a great table!

  5. Thank you, Erin! We appreciate the kind words!

    Yes, The Porter House will once again be serving brunch and dinner on Thanksgiving. It seems to become more and more popular every year for us.

    I’ll post more soon, just wanted to say thanks as soon as I read Erin’s message.

  6. Hi Liz!

    As requested (and prompted by Erin’s kind words), I wanted to send a quick note regarding our plans for Thanksgiving day at The Porter House.

    Keep in mind that by Thanksgiving, our new Porter House in Norwood, NJ (right down 303) will be open, so we’ll have both locations available.

    As usual, we will be having our Thanksgiving Day Brunch, beginning at 11am. We will be kicking up our already popular Sunday Brunch a notch or two for this day.

    For Dinner, I’ve attached a link which should bring you to our server, which has the menu from last year. We will be doing something similar to this as well.
