Dining Out in Cambridge This Thanksgiving

Nubar in Harvard Square

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to catch up with loved ones while scarfing down all the hearty, savory foods you can stomach. It also requires hours (if not days) of prep time, can occasionally reignite years-old family feuds and generally leads to a mountain of dirty dishes that you, as the cook, will somehow be responsible for washing. So, hey, we don’t blame you if you’re looking to eat out on Thanksgiving this time around.

Luckily, there are a ton of Cambridge restaurants that plan to stay open on the holiday, allowing you to sit back, relax and let someone else take care of all the cooking and cleaning. Bon appétit!

Give me your tired, your poor, your tacos. With much anticipation, Cambridge will open its golden doors to Lone Star Taco Bar. The restaurant will establish a second location in East Cambridge and anticipates serving their first taco in the new space by December 2014 or January 2015.

quesoLone Star Taco Bar (479 Cambridge St., Allston) was opened in January 2012 right next door to its sister restaurant, Deep Ellum. With the same owners (and even the same kitchen), the two restaurants share a core mission: to provide delicious and inspired cuisine, buttressed by a lovingly curated drink menu, in an environment delightfully free of pretense.

Scout Out! A Tradition in Clothing at The Garment District

Looking at the unassuming three-story brick building at 200 Broadway near Kendall Square, you would never think that this aging structure is home to the biggest thrift and vintage store in the Boston metro area. The building, now accented by painted pink stripes, was originally built in 1890 as a soap factory. The space moved into the textile game shortly after World War II, recycling and repurposing used clothing into base fabrics for wiping cloths and rags used in industrial settings such as auto shops, as well as fodder for stuffing futons.When manufacturing moved out of the Kendall Square area in the 1980s (a result of expanding education and tech industries), the textile business was sold, and the now iconic Garment District came into existence in 1986.
