Boulder Restaurants Open for Thanksgiving 2020

With ever-changing COVID-19 restrictions, our holiday season is bound to  look different this year. Instead of hosting, a good deal of Boulder residents are opting to support local establishments and forgo the traditional large-scale Thanksgiving celebration. As of publication, these restaurants will remain open for Thanksgiving, serving up variations on the standard turkey-day menu. 

Jill’s at St Julien 

One of Boulder’s most elegant hotels is preparing a sumptuous Thanksgiving “to-go”. Skip the shopping, cooking, and cleaning at home in exchange for a delicious, five-star meal from Jill’s. Items on the menu include roasted cauliflower pot roast and exotic mushroom turnovers. Pick up orders include appetizer, entree, dessert, and a bottle of wine. 


In lieu of turkey, mashed potatoes, and brussel sprouts, order a holiday platter from Boulder’s spanish-style steakhouse, Corrida. Choose from three options, each uniquely different and loaded with delicacies from around the world. Figs, honeycomb, aged manchego, and more mingle on a beautiful charcuterie board that completes any Thanksgiving Day spread. 


For those who want to cook some of their favorite sides but skip the bulk of Thanksgiving Day prep work, place a pre-order from this critically-acclaimed Boulder restaurant. Brined turkeys, capons, house-made pies, and large-format cocktails are a perfect addition to any family gathering. 

Frank’s Chophouse

Dine-in and carry-out options are available at this award-winning Boulder restaurant. Pre-order your Thanksgiving meal for pick up on or before the holiday and give holiday guests a meal to remember. Or, for those desiring a change of pace and wanting to get out for the evening, reserve a table at Frank’s before the restaurant  fills up. 

Boulder Cork

For an interesting take on traditional Thanksgiving Day dishes, reserve a spot or place a pick-up order from Boulder Cork. Items on the menu include Maine lobster ravioli, prime rib, sake salmon, and quinoa cakes. If you’re craving something other than turkey,Boulder Cork has something for you. Moreover, its extensive wine list has specialty bottles perfect for celebrating. 

Greenbriar Inn

Year after year, the Greenbriar Inn wins a number of awards from Best Place for Weddings to Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence. It’s no surprise that its menu features high-end, specialty items including venison carpaccio, oysters on the half shell, halibut, and foie gras crab cakes. They have yet to release a Thanksgiving menu but we expect it to be marvelous and mouth-watering. 

The Kitchen

This restaurant is known for acting as Boulder’s dining room, gathering locals and tourists in its warm atmosphere and serving up no-frills, high-quality dishes. The Kitchen focuses on sourcing fresh sustainable produce to support the local agriculture community. This Thanksgiving, plan to have dinner at this beloved eatery. Reserve your spot by 11/8 and receive a complimentary bottle of wine for your table. 

Spruce Farm and Fish

Located in the historic Hotel Boulderado, Spruce Farm and Fish is offering Thanksgiving dinner for dine-in or carry-out. Two options – a turkey or prime rib package – promise to be delicious and satisfying. Gather around your table (or theirs) for an enjoyable evening in downtown Boulder. 

Thanksgiving Day may look a little different this year with social distancing guidelines and travel restrictions. However, there is still much to be thankful for and our local restaurants need support. Pick up a tasty dinner or stay for a while and enjoy fine wine, roast turkey, and more.
