Are you spending your Thanksgiving in New York City? Perhaps you’re already staying in one of Blueground’s fully-furnished apartment rentals, or maybe you’re simply looking to mix it up a bit this year. We know that the holidays in 2020 are bound to look different this year, but we also know that a holiday well-spent with loved ones and friends both far and near is the best way to spend the day.
With so many people mixing things up and opting for virtual celebrations, why not take some of the hassle out of the holiday, too? Take a true day off, and let one of NYC’s top restaurants take care of the dinner duties instead. We’ve made a list of five NYC restaurants with take-home Thanksgiving dinners… eateries offering their own twist on the classics, giving you all the options for a fuss-free feast.
The Meat-Lover’s: Pig Beach in Brooklyn
Fully-cooked and ready to heat + eat, Pig Beach’s Thanksgiving meal is a barbecue-lover’s dream. Choose from prime brisket, a whole smoked turkey, or herb-crusted turkey breast. Drool-worthy sides like pineapple jalapeno coleslaw and brisket burnt end baked beans perfect complement their to-go cocktails, as well. Hint: you won’t want to miss the Millionaire’s Lemonade with Jack and mint.
The Ultra-Chic: Épicerie Boulud in Upper West Side
Go ahead. Be fancy. The super fancy festive Thanksgiving dinner from Épicerie Boulud is the brainchild of Chef Daniel Boulud, serves 6-8 people, and includes classics like a roasted turkey, butternut squash soup, creamed spinach, and chestnut stuffing. Don’t forget to ask about this year’s “Super Pie,” which is a scrumptious blend of pumpkin, apple, and pecan all in one.
The Vegetarian: Veggie Grill in Flatiron
Veggie-lovers will delight with this vegetarian and meat-free Thanksgiving meal from Veggie Grill in Flatiron. Created by Chef Kajsa Alger, their Thanksgiving Holiday Feast is a unique spin with everything from “Turkey” + Shiitake Mushroom Pot Pies to glazed rainbow carrots, mini shareable pumpkin pies, and beyond.
The Gastro-Pub: Jones Wood Foundry in Upper West Side
You’re going to love dinner and delivery with this Thanksgiving-meets-British culinary dream. Jones Wood Foundry on the Upper West Side relies on locally sourced ingredients for its feast, which includes turkey with all the trimmings and their famous pumpkin pie with Chantilly cream.
The Best of Both Worlds: Marlow and Daughters, Williamsburg
So, you love preparing the feast, but you hate the hassle of sourcing all the ingredients. We get it! Marlow and Daughters’ take-home Thanksgiving dinner offers the best of both worlds. All of the certified organic turkeys sold from Marlow and Daughters are sold fresh and uncooked, but the brining kit and fixings are also available onsite. Think of it as less fuss, more fun.
At Blueground, we know it’s been a hard year, and now is the time to create new traditions, new memories, and more fun. Restaurants, too, have felt the changes of 2020, and these exciting (and mouthwatering) take-home Thanksgiving menus are a great way to not only make your day more special, but also to support local eateries, as well. We invite you to kick back in one of our fully furnished apartments in NYC, watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade from the comfort of your own place, and enjoy the flavors of the season (and the city) – without any extra hassle.
