Thanksgiving time in London

This one is for all our US imports in London that are looking forward to Thanksgiving tomorrow (24.11.11)!

Even though it’s considered more of an American holiday, there are plenty of places to celebrate and take part in the festivities (but without the stress of cooking) with these top choices for celebrating Thanksgiving at London restaurants, plus a few other things to get your in the Christmas mood!

Babylon in Roof Gardens

Feast lovers should definitely try the cuisine at Babylon in Roof Gardens located at 99 Kensington High Street, London, W8 5SA. The scenery is beautiful and there are various feasts for lunch and dinner available on Thanksgiving starting at £38. A  jazz band also plays in the evening to help bring in the celebration.

Brasa

We love the sound of the Thanksgiving menu at Brasa in Fulham Broadway. US chef Ashbell McElveen is holding a one-off Thanksgiving Supper which includes his own special take on the traditional turkey offering. We can’t help but salivate over the sound of a Bourbon Grilled Turkey Steak…
