ITC Maurya, New Delhi, India
ITC Maurya’s poolside restaurant The Pavillon serves global cuisine so delicious, it might just redefine Thanksgiving. Dishes include the classics like roast turkey and pumpkin, but incorporate Indian staples and spices as well.
The hotel’s extravagant prix-fixe brunch is an elegant Thanksgiving experience. To honor the holiday, Taj Boston hosts the feast in its Grand Ballroom, which overlooks the Public Garden. Some options include roast turkey, sugar-glazed ham, a raw bar, cheese and charcuterie. To accommodate the kiddies, Taj Boston is also putting on a puppet show prior to eating time.
If you find yourself in Scotland this year, you can still get in on some of America’s most delicious traditions. In the stunning highlands, the Gleneagles hosts a three-course Thanksgiving meal.
The Plaza, New York City
First of all, if you’re at The Plaza on the 4th Thursday of November, then you better be hitting the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! Book a lavish Thanksgiving meal in The Palm Court or in The Todd English Restaurant for your return though. The festive food includes whipped potatoes, cornbread stuffing, pumpkin and duck confit risotto, rolled ribeye, parsnip puree, seasonal vegetables and, you guessed it, roasted turkey!

Even across the pond you can find Thanksgiving classics. In The Curtain Hotel’s Red Rooster Shoreditch, Americans and Europeans alike indulge in the holiday’s best treats, such as cornbread, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, green beans—you get the idea.
The Driskill Hotel, Austin, Texas
Everything is bigger in Texas. Apparently even the length of their Thanksgiving feast. At the Driskill in Austin, visitors can eat brunch, dinner or both. The hotel even accommodates those who aren’t fans of the bird. The menu also includes more modern recipes such as salmon croquette, smoked prime rib and deviled eggs with caviar.
