Thanksgiving in Milan 2016

Thanksgiving in Milan doesn’t call for window decal decorations of turkeys, pilgrims and Indians or a cartoon-float-filled spectacle of a parade along Broadway or watching NFL football, but there are, however, some restaurants in Milan that pay tribute to the most American holiday of them all.

This year, Thanksgiving takes place on Thursday, 24 November and here are some restaurants where you can celebrate Thanksgiving in Milan the American way. The list is by no means exhaustive and we’ll be updating this if/when more details become available. Also, if we missed anywhere, give us a holler and we’ll gladly update our list.


Thankgiving in Milan 2016 Erba BruscaWith a kitchen overseen by chef Alice Delcourt (who just happens to American), Erba Brusca is perfect for a Thanksgiving dinner. The evening’s menu starts with a radicchio and pomegranate salad followed by a sweet potato velouté with blue goat cheese and almonds. Savor a roasted turkey with stuffing and puree of potatoes, parsnip and Brussels sprouts with honey and guanciale and finish with apple crumble for dessert. Yum.
