Restaurants Open on Thanksgiving in Weehawken, West New York, + North Bergen

Written by:

Thanksgiving may look a little different this year in Hudson County than it usually does, but there is still plenty to be thankful for. Many are staying local this Thanksgiving, and to ease some of the stress that comes with choosing where to eat on Thanksgiving in Hudson County, we have created a guide to a variety of restaurants in Weehawken, North Bergen, and West New York that will open for Thanksgiving Day. These restaurants will be open and ready for you to enjoy a delicious meal with your family, while also following new safety protocols in New Jersey. 

In an effort to curb the virus and avoid a second wave, Governor Phil Murphy announced new restrictions on businesses in a Coronavirus update on November 10th.

The new restrictions are as follows:

Restaurants, bars, clubs, lounges, and other businesses that serve food or drinks will not be able to operate their indoor premises between 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. 

Outdoor dining can continue after 10:00 p.m., as can takeout and delivery services.

Seating at the physical bar in the indoor areas of bars and restaurants will be prohibited during all operating hours.

Restaurants will be allowed to have groups at tables indoors that are closer than six feet together if they are separated by barriers that comply with guidance from the Department of Health.

Restaurants will be allowed to set up plastic domes outdoors, limited to one group each, as additional outdoor dining space.

“As cases of COVID-19 increase across the country and in our state, we must take all measures necessary to stop the spread,” said Governor Murphy. “We must come together as a state to once again beat back this deadly virus and to save lives.”

The new measures took effect on Thursday, November 12th, at 5AM.
