Chadwicks — Opens at 5 O’clock Thanksgiving + Trae’s Favorite Cocktail Recipe . . .

Chadwicks is open at 5 o’clock on Thanksgiving. But should you be getting together with loved ones earlier in the day, Trae Lamond, Chadwicks’ owner, offered to share his Manhattan recipe with us — should you need a drink before they open! It’s a classic cocktail that his in-laws turned him on to years ago. Cheers!

The Manhattan

"My favorite cocktail, the Manhattan. My inlaws turned me on to these many moons ago, and I'm sure we will polish off quite a few these Thanksgiving." – Trae Lamond
