Eat In or Take Out: A Thanksgiving Dining Cheat Sheet

NOVEMBER 23, 2011

The city offers plenty of ways to enjoy a Thanksgiving feast. Here are some T-day ideas from trad to rad and from dining-out to bringing it home.

Yes, we’re open: In Williamsburg, Fatty ‘Cue will offer a five-course tasting menu served family-style. On the Upper West Side, Epicerie Boulud gives the celebrated chef a chance to present a 14-pounder that might actually be better than your mom’s, and Salumeria Rosi adds a continental twist. In the West Village, the menu at the ever-popular Spotted Pig gastropub offers a nod to the holiday by rotating turkey into their usual meat-on-meat menu. In the East Village, Hearth offers a three-course holiday menu. In the Lower East Side, tables at Freeman’s will undoubtedly be scarce; the trendy hideaway is offering a four-course prix-fixe spread.

A different drumstick: For better or worse, Cer Te in Midtown East introduces Thanksgiving pizza (Midtown Lunch). Momofuku Milk Bar in the East Village weighs in with a crave-worthy perversity, of course: The Thanksgiving croissant (Village Voice). Meat-free options are many: East Village favorite Angelica Kitchen will offer a five-course BYOB menu and Caravan of Dreams serves up three courses. Chelsea’s Blossom will have a four-course prix-fixe dinner, as will Candle 79 on the Upper East Side.

Get it to go: Chelsea’s Hill Country Barbecue Market offers a Thanksgiving feast that includes a pit-smoked turkey. Harlem’s famous Dinosaur Barbecue will also do a pit-roasted turkey with a full selection of homemade sides. Get more to-go suggestions at Eater. Eater also comes through with a last-minute pie guide.
