Gourmet Thanksgiving Dinner New York Style

Feel free to share:

New York, the city that never sleeps; probably because the world famous NYC chefs are spending the wee hours of the morning thinking up innovative and amazing amuse-bouches for our pleasure. Kitchen space is limited in many NYC apartments, so creating the full traditional Thanksgiving meal might be a challenge. Not to worry! Our favorite restaurants have come to the rescue with mouthwatering Thanksgiving offerings available to take-out or dine-in. Let’s sample the fare together, shall we?

Tavern on the Green was built as a sheep fold in the 1880’s to house the 700 Southdown sheep that grazed in Central Park’s Sheep Meadow. (Note the sheep in their logo.) After a hiatus and several changes of management, the iconic Central Park restaurant reopened in April, 2014.
