What’s Happening This Week: Countdown to Turkey Day


As you may know, our weekly dining and drinking newsletter features all the coolest epicurean events in the city.

Thanksgiving Dinner
Agua Dulce
Thursday, November 25

Staying in the city this year? Spice up your T-Day with the flavors of the Caribbean, Central America, and South America for just $35 per person. The menu will feature spiced pumpkin soup, shrimp ceviche tacos, roasted turkey with Portuguese sausage stuffing, sweet potato, and mole, with plenty of pumpkin hot-buttered-rum drinks to go around.

Brick Lane Curry House
Go even spicier with a menu of Anglo-Indian dishes, such as Turkey Seekh Kabob, Turkey Biryani, Cranberry Chutney, Raita (a turkey bone-in dish with fragrant basmati rice and Indian herbs), and Pumpkin Halwa for dessert.

Turn your Turkey Day into a fresh seafood and smoked pork day. The $95 prix fixe at Tocqueville will feature a chowder of Fishers Island, Maine lobster, and Nantucket scallops, and a main course of applewood-smoked slow-roasted rack of pork. Dessert is a pecan tart drizzled in bourbon caramel or a pumpkin trifle with candied cranberries.
