Thanksgiving is coming upon us once again in northern Florida. It is that classic time to get everyone together and enjoy good company, family and vacation.
This holiday often results in one family taking on the brunt of the festivities by playing host. Thankfully, you and your family have other options while on vacation at our St. Augustine resort. But, it does lead into a different problem entirely – where do you go?
Below are three fantastic restaurants committed to a special Thanksgiving set-up for the 2017 holiday season.
Each of the three St. Augustine restaurants are in a slightly different part of St. Augustine. You can select the restaurant that fits the preferred ambiance and area in town, from the coastal side to the center of St. George Street.
Location: 95 Cordova St, St Augustine, FL 32084.
Phone: (904) 810-6810
What Cordova Street lacks in foot traffic it makes up for in subdued ambiance and high-end dining. Costa Brava has a very reserved and small space for its Thanksgiving meal this year, so booking ahead is essential.
The menu typically consists of Mediterranean fish, steak, and the roasted garlic shrimp, to name a few. Adults are $69 and kids are $25, but the food is worth every penny.
Costa Brava will be open 11am to 9pm for Thanksgiving.
Location: 828 Anastasia Blvd, St Augustine, FL 32080
Phone: (904) 824-8244
Gypsy Cab has a very old-school diner feel, which uses purple as a bold statement of originality. It is across the Bridge of Lions and within a reasonable driving distance of our St. Augustine resort.
The menu is almost entirely organic, which is a nice change of pace for people who are becoming stricter with their food selections. The menu includes a stunning portabella mushroom burger and a mixture of Asian fusion.
Gypsy Cab has not announced their specific Thanksgiving Day menu yet, or if they expect to have multiple specific items for the holiday, however in years past they have served homemade gravy, sweet potatoes, moist turkey, homemade cranberry dressing – everything you would expect in a traditional holiday feast.
The team is small, casual, and primed to deliver some of the best eating in town. They will be open 1pm to 8pm for Thanksgiving.
Location: 118 Avenida Menendez, St Augustine, FL 32084
O.C. Whites is found right along the Matanzas River and is widely considered one of the most popular dining destinations in the city. It is located near many St Augustine vacation rentals features a stunning water view.
The restaurant has a sprawling main dining area inside, with a decorated and lively patio outside. The interior has smaller nooks, with decorated walls to section off areas for added privacy.
O.C. Whites will certainly fill up this Thanksgiving. For a location that has a wide menu (for the pickier family members) and a lively atmosphere, this is the place. O.C. Whites will be open 11am to 8pm for Thanksgiving.
