My husband and I will be in Newfane, VT (near Brattleboro) for Thanksgiving. Wondering if anyone knows of nearby restaurants open and serving Thanksgiving dinner?
You can go to OpenTable.com and click on Vermont, then enter the date and different times -- some might not show up at a particular time if their slots are all booked but will show up at another time for which they have space available. Then you can see which places, if any, are close enough. This far out, I would also call or email to verify that they will in fact be open on Thanksgiving, in case they haven't gotten around yet to taking that day out of their rotation.
Check with these folks. http://www.thefourcolumnsinn.com/ The place closed down awhile ago but is set to re-open in November. It was really nice a few years ago when I stayed there. There are not a lot of dining options right in Newfane itself.
You can check out the Hemitage Inn in West Dover, I would expect them to be open but don't know for sure.
Sweet setting and unbelievable food.
