50+ Places To Stuff Your Face on Thanksgiving

On November 21, 2014 by SADIERAE + CO.

No plans for Thanksgiving? No biggie. New York is the best city to not cook in. If your kitchen is too small, you normally eat dinner sitting on your couch or your oven is too tiny to fit a turkey, let one of the best restaurants in town make it for ya. And the best part? You don’t have to do the dishes [so you can go straight home to loaf around on the couch]. Just don’t forget to wear elastic waist pants.

And before we start, keep in mind that most restaurants start serving their meals as early as noon on Thanksgiving Day. Also, we realize that a lot of these places may already be booked. We’d recommend requesting to be placed on a wait list, but always have a backup plan!
