Celebrate Thanksgiving in Paris in 2023

Thanksgiving, the American family celebration held every fourth Thursday of November around a turkey, is almost familiar to us as we've seen it in our favorite TV series. Thanksgiving is coming to Paris on November 23, and a feast awaits you at these restaurants in the capital. Let the feasting begin !


Cali Sisters

Celebrate Thanksgiving Cali Sisters in Paris

This well-known feel-good spot, run by Capucine and Juliette, the two Malibu sisters who had already entrusted their first menu to the American food expert in Paris, Carrie Salomon. For Thanksgiving, the chef takes over the Cali Sisters' kitchen and puts her own spin on the iconic dishes of this celebration with a good dose of inspiration from Southern California. And the good news is that Thanksgiving lasts 3 days here!

Let's eat : crispy sweet potato with smoked cheddar, classic mushroom-stuffed turkey, chestnut cream, and smashed butternut, accompanied by rosemary and pecorino sweet potato fries. Finish on a high note with a deconstructed pumpkin pie or a white chocolate lava cake with a flowing butternut center and maple syrup whipped cream.

Note: You can order a Thanksgiving menu for 6 to 10 people (€40 per person) for takeaway before November 21 to celebrate at home.

 From November 23 to 25, lunch on Thursday & Friday: Thanksgiving menu à la carte. Dinner on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday: €45 menu. Special Thanksgiving brunch on Saturday (€35).

Cali Sisters, 17 rue Notre Dame des Victoires, Paris 2nd.


Le Coq & Fils

Celebrate Thanksgiving Le Coq & Fils in Paris

A lover of poultry and the United States, where he owned a restaurant for 5 years in New York, the three-star chef Antoine Westermann has a strong connection with this celebration. At his table perched on Montmartre hill, which has just been awarded the virtuous Ecotable label, Thanksgiving is savored in excellence, haute cuisine style, featuring an exceptional Red Ardennes turkey.

Let's eat : start with a poultry terrine accompanied by cranberry chutney (€12). Before tackling the star of the menu: the parsleyed Red Ardennes turkey, served with giblet meatloaf, poultry juice, and confit garlic (€43). As a side, there's butternut puree with citrus zest (€11) or Brussels sprouts caramelized with acacia honey (€10). And for the sweet touch, an extravagant bowl of pumpkin ice cream and coulis, pecan nut crumble, or a 100% organic Black Forest-style Sunday with whipped cream and caramelized pecans (€14).

Plus: for those who want to feast at home, the ready-to-roast Thanksgiving poultry is available for takeout (€44).

Served on November 23 for lunch and dinner starting at 7:30 pm.
