Mt. Washington Tavern
- Address: 5700 Newbury St., Baltimore, MD 21209 | Website
The Thanksgiving dinner menu at the Mt. Washington Tavern has one of the most elaborate offerings on our list. While most places offer turkey and sides, their menu has appetizers like calamari, truffle fries, crab wontons, and southwest eggrolls.
There are six different main courses, but crowd favorites are the Honey Baked Ham Platter and the Traditional Turkey Platter which comes with honey-baked ham or slow-roasted turkey, green beans, bread stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, and cranberry sauce.
We love that there’s an option for vegans – the almond-crusted tofu. Add a la carte sides and desserts like cheesecake bites or flourless chocolate cake.
