CUT at 45 Park Lane

As you’d expect at this upmarket joint, Thanksgiving at CUT at 45 Park Lane is a dressy affair. Book a table for the restaurant’s Thanksgiving dinner and American chef David McIntyre will kick off with a choice of eight starters (think roasted squash soup, prime beef carpaccio with black truffles and Dorset crab with lobster) before moving on to traditional turkey, sautéed dover sole or Creekstone Farms prime steak, all served with a selection of modern side dishes. Desserts range from spiced pumpkin and ginger cheesecake to pecan pie with maple ice cream and a Russet apple and blackberry crumble with candied almonds. You won’t go thirsty here, either; CUT claims the biggest American wine list in London – choose from Napa Valley Chardonnay, light and earthy Other People’s Pinot from Oregon or a splash-out Syrah Colgin ‘IX Estate’, also from Napa.

Big Easy

If you’re a big group celebrating Thanksgiving, Big Easy is the ideal place for a raucous feast with its red leather banquettes and merry soundtrack. All three branches (King’s Road, Covent Garden and Canary Wharf) are offering a £35 American menu this Thanksgiving. That gets you a serious celebratory feast – butternut squash soup, pit-smoked turkey with Southern, slow-cooked cornbread stuffing and a choice of three classic desserts – key lime pie, homemade pumpkin pie or Jack Daniels-infused pumpkin cheesecake.

Rail House Café

After the popularity of the Thanksgiving feast at Riding House Café, sister restaurant Rail House Café is joining in on the fun to offer a sharing-style feasting menu for £40. You’ll be greeted with a cinnamon old fashioned topped with Bourbon soaked cranberries before tucking in to the main event. Norfolk bronze turkey comes with cornbread stuffing, maple-buttered sweet potatoes, mac and cheese, creamed corn casserole, glazed spouts and lots of gravy to soak it all up. Finish off with a pecan pie or a pumpkin brûlée pie served with whipped vanilla cream.

The Breakfast Club

For 12 years, the Breakfast Club has been serving up hearty comfort food, and Thanksgiving is no exception. Eight of the cafes in London and Oxford will be serving a three-course dinner for £28. The American feast will start with butternut bisque served with warm jalapeño and coriander cornbread before moving onto the main event of turkey served with hasselback potatoes and a kale and sweet potato mac ‘n’ cheese topped with a sea salt and rosemary pretzel crumb. Make sure you leave space for a slice of warm pumpkin pie and vanilla cream. Along with good food, ‘lovely vibes’ have also been promised.
