Where To Dine Downtown on Thanksgiving
A New York City Thanksgiving:
For many of us who may not be headed to our families or friends homes for a big turkey meal, there are plenty of options to eat out in New York City. Many of these restaurants are in new thriving New York City neighborhoods like Battery Park City and Tribeca
New developments and condo conversions, both areas are thriving with families due to good schools, new entertainment and dining, and access to the gorgeous Hudson River Park. The average apartment in Tribeca was around $3.5 million in 2014. In Battery Park City, the average price was probably closer to $2.5-3 million. Of course, there are 2 bedroom coops and condo apartments for sale closer to $1.5 to 2.5, depending on the building and exact location.
As the New York Times recently pointed out, Tribeca is no longer affordable for starving artists. But downtown is now a prime destination for people hungry for top eateries to choose from this holiday season. Among the top options are Bubby’s and Bouley’s. Both are offering Turkey dinner menus.
For more fancy, fun dining options, here are some recommendations from the New York Times.
In Battery Park City, you can dine at French mega food hall, Le District and have a little Parisian/French Thanksgiving meal. I am going to feast there this week. Of course, if I can get a table.
It goes without saying, make your reservation soon!
According to the management, they will have a special Thanksgiving menu and be opened from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. Here is what they are serving:
1st course: Celery chestnut soup OR Endive, watercress, apple, walnut, sautéed butternut squash, dry cranberries, blue cheese dressing
2nd course: Sweet potato gnocchi, sugar snap peas, roasted pumpkin seeds and butternut cream sauce
3rd course: Roasted wild turkey breast, homemade stuffing, carrots, parsnips, mash potato, cranberry sauce and gravy OR saddle venison, Peruvian hazelnut mash, fricassee of enoki, shitake mushroom, ginger & braised blackberry red cabbage
4th course: Pumpkin pie OR profiteroles
$60/person; $85 with wine pairing
Now that makes me hungry.
All over New York City, there are plenty of options to dine out (pig out) at the city’s finest restaurants next Thursday.
