Thanksgiving doesn't feature here at all, I'm afraid.

Can't recommend anything - but someone alse may have an idea.

Blue Plate Bar and Grill in Neutral Bay is an American Style Restaurant that specializes in American Food and is run by an American. So if any place would do a Thanksgiving meal that might be it.


I'm sure the Australian-American Association, as GW mentioned, would have an event but it may be members only. Worth checking though.

As others have alluded, it's not a festival that is celebrated in Australia except by an handful of American expats so restaurants that do the full Turkey,stuffing, pie and all the trimmings may be a bit hard to find.

I have just looked through the "Good Food" liftout in today's "Sydney Morning Herald". There are restaurants advertising Christmas and New Year functions, but no mention of Thanksgiving.

Have you checked out www.yelp.com.au? I enetered Thanksgiving and found reference to one place called Indulgent Sage at McMahons Point. The reference was for last year but their website says they are doing it again this year. I have no idea what they are like but it might be something to check out.


You can check out reviews for them on www.eatability.com.au

You won't have much choice so it might be a matter of take what you can get.

We seem to have adopted Halloween with open arms. What's wrong with adding Thanksgiving to the festive season list? :)

I had brunch at the Indulgent Sage about a month ago. It was good, and obviously a very popular haunt for locals.

Fortunately, no turkeys were harmed during our visit.

OP, how about embracing the different cultures of other countries when travelling? After all, you can have Thanksgiving every year you are in lthe US.
