For those who would rather eat Chinese takeout than cook Thanksgiving dinner, have no fear. There are several restaurants in Williamsburg that are not only open on Thanksgiving Day, but also offer up special Prix Fixe menus. Make your reservations now!
70 Grand St., (718) 388-5100
Though Aurora specializes in Italian cuisine, this Thanksgiving they are offering a three-course Prix Fixe for $60 with your choice of four appetizers, four entrees, side dishes and desserts including plenty of vegetarian options (like lasanga), turkey with sunchokes, a truffle plate ($10), and pumpkin panacotta. Top it all off with a wine pairing at $20 per person.
432 Union Ave., (718) 486-7717
Dumont, one of the most popular restaurants in Williamsburg, will be open Thanksgiving Day from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. serving a Prix Fixe dinner featuring three courses and dessert for $65. Give them a call for more details on the menu.
149 Broadway, (718) 384-6343
Zagat-rated fancy restaurant Dressler will be serving a three-course Prix Fixe for $85, with a wine pairing for $40 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.

4. Peter Luger
178 Broadway, (718) 387-7400
Though Peter Luger will not be doing a special Thanksgiving Prix Fixe, they will be open Thanksgiving Day serving their regular menu of Porterhouse Steak with creamed spinach and potatoes. For those who hate Turkey and just want to eat a good steak!
247 S. 1st St., (718) 218-8047

Make sure to indulge in one of their delicious cocktails as well.
