Thanksgiving Dinner at Gadsby's Tavern

'

Editorial Review

So you really don't want to cook on this most American of holidays, but you feel really guilty because you and kith and kin should have a special holiday, right? You can do both if you reserve a spot at the historic Alexandria eatery that entertained the likes of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and James Monroe. They certainly play up the history angle with lamp-lit tables, strolling players and waiters in period costumes. Expect turkey and the trimmings as well as roast beef and ham, homemade breads and two kinds of pie for dessert.
