Must Try Manhattan Restaurants this Thanksgiving
via Town & Country
Whether you’re looking to get pampered at the city’s fanciest restaurant or you want to get your perfectly cooked turkey and sides via socially distanced take-away, Manhattan’s dining scene will ensure that no matter how you choose to celebrate this Thanksgiving, you’ll still have a holiday that’s truly something to be thankful for. Take a look at some of our picks to make sure your holiday food cravings are satisfied.
Eleven Madison Park
To start our list, we stay in the neighborhood. For a Michelin-starred Thanksgiving, the recently-vegan Eleven Madison Park is offering and entirely plant-based menu starting from $375 with home delivery available in certain areas of Manhattan as well as local pickup on November 24. The meal includes a whole-roasted Kabocha Squash and sides such as Autumn Vegetable Gratin, Brussels Sprouts, and Cranberry Chutney, as well as add-on options like a White Truffle-Chestnut Risotto. Purchases will also help the restaurant’s partnership with Rethink Food to distribute meals to New Yorkers experiencing food insecurity.
Located in SoHo, Vestry sits nestled between art studios and modern museums on cobblestone streets, offering visitors an enriching look into the charm of an authentic seafood restaurant featuring indoor and outdoor seating. This Michelin-starred Soho spot will be offering a three-course menu for $98 per person from 12:00 to 7:00 PM on Thanksgiving with options including potato gnocchi with parmesan cream and calamari, butternut squash soup, Atlantic salmon with koji sauce, crispy-skinned branzino, shrimp risotto, and bourbon pecan pie.
If a perfect view of the parade is what you’re after, Chef Jonathan Waxman’s restaurant, Jams, at 1 Hotel Central Park is offering a full day of options right along the famed Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade route. Whether it’s an in-room brunch basket looking out over the parade, brunch in front of the restaurant’s floor to ceiling windows, or a prix-fixe three-course dinner (4 PM to 9 PM, $85 per adult and $40 per child) so you can really make the most of turkey day.
Dante West Village
At both the original Dante and its West Village outpost, expect a prix fixe look for Thanksgiving classics with modern twists. Think: chicory salad with granny smith apples, clothbound cheddar, and a maple vinaigrette, roasted brussels sprouts with crispy bacon, oven roasted turkey breast with apricot and sage stuffing, and a selection of pies. And since Dante is consistently voted one of the best bars in the world, you’ll of course want to sample their signature pumpkin eggnog.
