Eating Out on Thanksgiving: Go Beyond Turkey

If you're eating out this Thanksgiving (and whose oven can fit a turkey?), there are plenty of places to go for a tryptophan fix. But what if you hate turkey or are vegetarian or want beef? Or what if you think the whole turkey, stuffing, mashed-potatoes combo is an annual bore? No worries, because this is New York and nothing here is like anywhere else; you can eat whatever you want on Thanksgiving, as long as you're grateful for it. (It's a little tougher to make leftover sandwiches the next day, but you can always get one at the deli.) We found several restaurants serving Thanksgiving dinners that encompassed everything from bacon-wrapped wild salmon to porcini and chestnut roulade. Your taste buds will thank you.
