Thanksgiving 2013 in Munich

Kennedy’s at Sendlinger Tor will offer their own Thanksgiving set menu at 25 €, between 5 and 10pm. With pumpkin soup, turkey with all the trimmings and a New York cheesecake, you can’t go far wrong. There will be live music afterwards, should you fancy dancing off that roast turkey.

And of course, the Hard Rock Cafe is hosting a Thanksgiving meal and will be showing live American football, but you must reserve in advance.

From 27-29 November, Munich’s Marriott Hotel will be putting on a spread at Grill93, and if you’re in a rush, they’re also doing “turkey to go”. It’s a bit pricy to eat at the restaurant – 52 € a head for adults, and 26 € for children between 7 and 12. Should you fancy take out, the offer’s a bit cheaper – just 40 € per person, and you get two bottles of wine thrown in. Check out their Facebook Event page for more info.

Neuhausen’s New Orleans’ bar The Big Easy will be celebrating too, with a Thanksgiving buffet on Thursday, costing just 29 €, which is a pretty good deal. They’ll also have live music, to help you celebrate. Also in Neuhausen, Restaurant Gut Nederling will be hosting a Thanksgiving event starting at 7pm. They’ll also have live music, with the New Yorker Linda Jo Rizzo (former owner of the Piazza Linda restaurant) performing. Dinner consists of pumpkin soup, roast turkey and an apple cinnamon tiramisu.

Unfortunately this is now all booked up, but Sophia will be hosting a lovely vegan Thanksgiving dinner at the Biergarten Naturfreunde Deutschlands on Thursday. She’s making delicious courses such as walnut and pumpkin pasta, lentils with autumn veggies and an apple cinnamon tiramisu – all for just 25 € excluding drinks. It’s worth keeping an eye on the Facebook page, just in case there are any cancellations. It sounds like heaven!

Many supermarkets now sell frozen turkeys, should you be planning on making a Thanksgiving dinner yourself. Or, if you’re after the very best, Stephani’s at Viktualienmarkt (formerly Höhenrainer), will always be able to order you a big juicy turkey. And all supermarkets do Preiselbeeren, which is a decent substitute for cranberry sauce. And for all other American-specific items, I’d try American Heritage at Rotkreuzplatz.

Happy Thanksgiving!
