If you love Thanksgiving dinner, but not the washing up, why not dine out instead, and soak up the festive atmosphere enjoying a traditional turkey with fellow diners.
For the American expat, the culinary curious or those who just enjoy a good celebration without the dishes, from simple fare to fine dining, here's a selection of some of the Thanksgiving Dinner 2018 dining options on offer in Europe this year. Remember to book ahead!
Flaherty's Irish Pub, Barcelona
Set just off Las Ramblas this family owned pub has all the makings of a home away from home. With a set menu at 17 euros a head it may not promise the most sophisticated choice but it's certainly the most affordable. Plus there's beer on tap to boot. Here's the menu.
Plaza Joaquim Xirau S/N Barcelona (just off las ramblas)
Season's Restaurant, Amsterdam
Discover good old traditional Thanksgiving favourites at this casual eatery in the Dutch capital. Starters like sweet corn soup with spicy crab and avocado run through to turkey with all the trimmings. The festivities last three days, on 21, 22 and 23 November, giving ample time for a re'run!
Herenstraat 16 1015 CA Amsterdam
Ralph's de Ralph Lauren, Paris
While the dining room of this luxury American clothes brand doesn't promise a Thankgiving menu per se, there's plenty to choose from on the American themed menu. So soak up the atmosphere with a cocktail in hand against the back drop of orchestra jazz from the 1940s and you won't feel too hard done by, even if you are a long way from home.
