I’ll be adding to this list as I come across new listings – most, if not all of these restaurants require you to make reservations, and I haven’t checked to see if reservations are still available. If you are an owner of a restaurant that is offering a special Thanksgiving menu, please send all pertinent information to columbusfoodieATgmailDOTcom and I’ll add it to the listings. I’ll also be posting the list on the right sidebar under the “Events” header, so keep an eye out there for updates.
