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