Turkey Day Meals to Gobble Down

Wednesday, November 22, 2017


That’s right, Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and we’ve got the list for where to eat. Whether you’re going out or staying in, here are some options for any occasion.

Bistro Chat Noir

This season Bistro Chat Noir is offering “Gormet-to-Go Thanksgiving Dinner Baskets” that put a French twist on the classic Thanksgiving meal. The baskets serve four to six people and include roast turkey roulade with southern cornbread stuffing with toasted marshmallow sweet potatoes, shallot haricot verts, homemade cranberry sauce and turkey jus reduction. With an additional charge, cauliflower gratin, sautéed spinach and brussels sprouts are also available. Not interested in eating at home? Bistro Chat Noir will also be open regular hours on Thanksgiving (11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.) and the menu will also feature the Thanksgiving special.

La Pecora Bianca

After opening a new location at 950 Second Avenue just over a month ago, La Pecora Bianca will be serving a four course, fixed price Thanksgiving dinner this Thursday. Course one is a root vegetable salad with apples, hazelnuts and a truffle vinaigrette, followed by a butternut graminga. The third course is a slow roasted turkey with mushroom stuffing and cranberry salsa, and for dessert, a pumpkin cheesecake. La Pecora Bianca is open from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. on weekdays, and both locations are offering Thanksgiving dinner.

Lincoln Ristorante

This Thanksgiving Lincoln Ristorante will offer an all-day holiday menu full of fall favorites. Seating is available from 12 p.m. to 8:45 p.m., and meals are fixed prices of three ($76) or four ($90) courses, $45 for children under 12. Each course has four or five options inspired by fall. But what of their Thanksgiving turkey? Chef Shea Gallante’s roasted free-range turkey is paired with red kuri squash, brussels sprouts and turkey sugo.

Mamo, located at 323 West Broadway, is offering a four-course meal on Thanksgiving, fixed at $88. The restaurant, known for its European interior, is putting its own twist on the American meal. Starting with a beet salad with mixed greens, hazelnuts and truffle dressing and followed by homemade butternut squash ravioli the meal is centered on the stuffed breast and braised leg accompanied by sweet potato puree, roasted root vegetables and cranberry sauce. The dessert, pumpkin pie, toasted marshmallows and vanilla ice cream, however, remains a classic.

Looking for family style dining for Thanksgiving? Rosemary’s, a trattoria in the West Village with a rooftop farm, is offering just that. The four-course meal has a number of appetizers to choose from including a salami and cheese dish, and farm vegetables, followed by homemade pasta with butternut squash, pumpkin seeds, sage and pecorino. The main course is roasted breast and smoked thighs of turkey with green beans, cranberry mostarda and maple gravy. Sides for the meal are the Thanksgiving classics, brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes, and for dessert, a choice from spiced date cake, pumpkin tiramisu or salted caramel gelato.
