Many Santa Fe families make dining out on Thanksgiving Day a holiday tradition. But the coronavirus — and temporary restrictions aimed at curbing its rampant spread in New Mexico — means restaurants will be closed to indoor and outdoor dining on Thanksgiving Day.
Instead, many of the city’s chefs and eateries are offering elaborate take-home prix fixe meals and a la carte options to help you make what will doubtless be a difficult holiday a little more special.
What follows is a sampling of the many special Thanksgiving Day menus and items on offer this year for takeout or curbside pickup. Some of Santa Fe’s offerings already have sold out, and others have passed their cutoff dates for advanced orders — the options below were still available as of Monday, and cutoff and pickup dates are included where available. Keep in mind that most local grocers, including Albertsons, Smith’s, Sprouts and Whole Foods, offer precooked items as well; check the websites for ordering instructions and deadlines.
If you’re interested in a particular offering listed below, call (or order online) sooner rather than later.
Whether you’re ordering a feast for six from a four-star restaurant or picking up a pumpkin pie from your favorite bakery, spare a moment to give thanks for our abundance of restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops and specialty food providers. They need our support more than ever. Happy Thanksgiving!
