The Best Restaurants for Your Thanksgiving Meal in NYC

Because maybe you’re alone. Maybe you don’t want to cook. Maybe you just wanna get out of the house.

Thanksgiving is a holiday that can either be super enjoyable or suck super hard. It is a holiday that exists in polarity. Even the origin story is of two extremes. The real story about Thanksgiving (extremely bad, genocide) or the one we are told in Kindergarten (imagine a world where colonizers shared things other than diseases). Anyways, if you’re alone this year for your holiday or don’t feel super confident in your ability to cook a turkey, there are plenty of options in NYC. We compiled some of our favorite suggestions.
