Highlighting Where You Can Eat Out for Thanksgiving This Year
Happy Friday Foodies! As I’m sure you’re aware, Thanksgiving is less than a week away and everyone, self-proclaimed foodie or not, is ready to get their stomachs full and enjoy time with their friends and family. Though it’s tradition to cook homemade delectables during this holiday, not everyone has their feast at home.
CNN reported that according to the National Restaurant Association (NRA), about 15 million Americans eat out for the biggest meal of the year and that’s not including the additional four million people who opt for take out or our beloved fast food foodies who pig out at places such as KFC and McDonalds. In total, we’re looking at roughly 20 million or more Americans who don’t have Thanksgiving dinner at grandma’s house. So if you or someone you know is apart of that number and are unsure of where to go, below is a list of places open for business this Thanksgiving.
Rôtisserie Georgette (NYC)
Price: $84, kids $40; On the menu: The three-course menu offers a selection of appetizers, including chestnut soup with black truffle croutons and a red and golden beet salad with crispy prosciutto and toasted hazelnuts. The roasted turkey entree is accompanied by sausage, sage and brioche stuffing, pommes purees with turkey jus and cranberry-orange compote; or, go non-traditional with a whole roasted branzino of beef prime rib. Sweets include a chocolate pot de creme and the restaurant’s special tarte tatin for two, with tangy creme fraiche.
