Though we personally have trouble seeing past October as a concrete reality, local restaurants are beginning to announce delicious Thanksgiving offerings that can be enjoyed by you and close family/friends (or solo, no judgment) this year.

(We'll add to this post as we hear more – feel free to chime in at dining@orlandoweekly.com.)



Disney Springs Italian destination Terralina will be open on Thanksgiving and is cooking up roast turkey with apple-pancetta stuffing (pictured above) and all the fixings. Terralina's on-site bar will be serving seasonal Cranberry Mules too – vodka, ginger beer, cranberry juice, lime juice and fresh cranberries. Reservations can be made through Terralina's website.

Fellow Disney Springs stalwart Paddlefish is forgoing seafood specials and also doing classic Thanksgiving dishes on the day with a "Traditional Turkey Dinner," with the titular bird joined by chouriço cornbread stuffing, cranberry relish and more. Discounted bottles of wine will be at the ready. Reservations can be made through Paddlefish's website.



Winter Park's New Standard, on the other hand, will be closed on Thanksgiving Day but is offering a to-go family platter, "Everything But the Turkey," that can serve up to four people. The package includes six side dishes tending toward the trad side – mac and cheese, mashed potatoes and gravy, etc. – along with a pumpkin pie. Discounted wines are also on offer, as are Manhattan cocktail and mimosa kits (for spirited political discussions, perchance?). The deadline to order is the weekend before Thanksgiving. Visit the New Standard's website for more information.
