Where to Celebrate Thanksgiving in Manhattan – Hell’s Kitchen, Times Square, and Uptown

Part V, our last entry in this Thanksgiving culinary trip around New York City travels West to Hell’s Kitchen and the Theater District/Times Square and further uptown to the Upper West Side.




Hell’s Kitchen

PRINT: Come see why PRINT has been named one of the top newcomers in Manhattan in 2011 at any of three Thanksgiving seatings (1pm, 4pm, and 7pm). The traditional Thanksgiving menu sources its ingredients from local farms and regional vendors and includes Heather’s Heritage roast turkey from Windy Hollow Farm in Pennsylvania, roast baby Brussels sprouts, sausage cornbread stuffing, cranberry chestnut relish, rutabaga mash, braising greens, pumpkin pie, and pecan pie. The menu is $70 per person and $45 for children under 12.  The David Rockwell design is equally enthralling.

Times Square:

Carmine's: As if Carmine’s in Times Square and on the Upper West Side didn't give diners enough of a feast year round with their gigantic portions, the restaurants will prepare a Thanksgiving banquet to satisfy 8-10 hungry diners for $195. The family style feast includes one 18-pound roasted turkey with giblet gravy, sausage and sage stuffing, Brussels sprouts with caramelized onions and applewood smoked bacon; sautéed string beans with julienned red peppers and toasted hazelnuts; baby carrots with fresh dill; sweet potatoes topped with marshmallows and maple syrup; mashed potatoes with homemade cranberry sauce; and pumpkin, apple, or pecan pie.
