Make a reservation at one of these 11 restaurants, whose singular takes on the biggest meal of the year go beyond mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie.
Chef Bill Telepan wants to cook you Thanksgiving dinner—and you can eat it either at his Upper West Side restaurant or at home. Opt for the Thanksgiving dinner to go (feeds up to 10 people; $600) and enjoy seasonal salad, squash soup, roasted turkey, pumpkin pie and chocolate-pecan tart. For dining in, a three-course menu ($95, $50 for children) includes flavorful dishes like smoked Brussels sprouts and egg pasta with poached egg and pecorino romano, roasted organic turkey with traditional trimmings and hot apple pie…or pumpkin bread pudding…or chocolate-pecan tart. 72 W. 69th St.; 212-580-4300; telepan-ny.com.
