Restaurants Open for Thanksgiving in Hoboken and Jersey City

Written by:

In previous years, local restaurants have provided a home-away-from-home option for Thanksgiving dinner. Families could enjoy time together without the hassle of prep work or cleaning up after large meals with endless dishes. While limited indoor dining has reopened, residents will be glad to know that some local restaurants will still be offering holiday help.

It only seems fitting that a New Jersey Thanksgiving has a delicious Italian flair as well. Carello di Cannoli is a luxury cannoli bar cart, creating handcrafted cannolis made to order in the New York and New Jersey area. You can book them to cater your holiday festivities by sending a DM on their Instagram @carrellodicannoli and start dreaming up which cannoli combination you’ll choose to sweeten the day. Read on to mix things up and have a non-traditional Thanksgiving dinner while also supporting a local restaurant.
