We already published part one, but if you’re still looking for an amazing place to celebrate Thanksgiving (a.k.a. you don’t feel like cooking/cleaning/doing dishes), we think these restaurants would fit the bill. I suggest you make reservations asap.
Palo Santo in Park Slope: Thursday November 24 from 2-8pm. I’ve been a huge fan of Palo Santo for a long time. Chef Gautier is an incredibly talented chef. Thanksgiving at his restaurant is something to be thankful for. The cost is $60 for adults and $30 for kids. Call (718) 636-6311 for reservations. 652 Union Street, Park Slope
Alfama in Midtown East: This restaurant would make a great spot if you have family scattered all over Long Island, NY and NJ. For $65 you can enjoy the restaurant’s Portuguese Thanksgiving menu. We checked it out and it looks delectable. For reservations, click here. 214 E 52nd St
Oceana in Midtown: If you’re more in the mood for a Michelin starred meal this Thanksgiving, you can get one at Oceana from 1:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. This will be a more sea focused Thanksgiving dinner, but we say “why not”. Thanksgiving dinner without the sleepiness sounds good to us (but just in case you change your mind, they will be offering a delicious roast heritage turkey). ($75 per adult and $37.50 for children under 12) 120 W. 49th Street
Highpoint Bistro & Bar in Chelsea: Another NYC-Turkey Day bargain; something to truly be thankful for. Highpoint is offering a 3-course prix fixe Thanksgiving menu for $38 per guest (or $17 for kids 10 and under). 216 7th Avenue at 23rd St
Ofrenda Cocina Mexicana: Maybe you’re more into Dia De Accion De Gracias. If you’re feeling a bit like a rebel, why not grab Mexican? Ofrenda is offering a $40 4-course Thanksgiving menu with dishes including: Poblano, chestnut, and corn soup; Roasted Turkey with mole sauce and Codfish with nogada sauce & picadillo. Could be the start of a new Dia De Pavo tradition.113 7th Avenue S.
Brother Jimmy’s on the UWS: Thanksgiving Day marks the start of the eating season. Brother Jimmy’s has a great way to get it started with their Cajun Fried Turkey Thanksgiving Dinner. It costs $225 and you get a 16 lb turkey, cornbread stuffing, collard greens, cranberry relish & candied yams with walnuts, and dessert. If this is your thing, your orders must be placed by November 17th.
Madison & Vine at the Library Hotel: $45 for a Thanksgiving feast sounds pretty good to me especially when it includes items like a butternut squash and pumpkin bisque, free range turkey, slow roasted prime beef rib AND wild mushroom and white truffle ravioli. 299 Madison Avenue
New York Central at Grand Hyatt New York:You have two options for celebrating Thanksgiving at NY Central. You can choose either lunch from 12-4pm and enjoy a three course prix fixe of $45 OR if you’re a bit more traditional, their dinner (4-10pm) for $65. Chef Christian Ragano will serve dishes including his Maple Glazed Free Range Turkey with Chorizo-Cornbread Stuffing, Black Kale with Ham Hocks, and Slow Braised Pot Roast. Park Avenue at Grand Central
Park Avenue Tavern: Will serve the full menu as well as a special 3-course price fixe at $35 per adultand $15 for children under 12.The menu will include dishes such as roasted butternut squash soup, tomato bisque, roasted turkey with stuffing and cranberries and of course apple and pecan pie. I think this is the winner if you’re a traditionalist. 99 Park Ave
Jones Wood Foundry on the Upper East Side: This is for the Anglophiles out there. Chef Jason Hicks has crafted a special Thanksgiving menu for a mere $40. It includes their amazing butternut squash ravioli and traditional roast turkey with all the trimmings. I’ll keep dessert as a surprise. 401 E. 76th Street
