Thanksgiving conjures images of Norman Rockwellian domestic bliss, but anyone living in New York knows the food scene these days is about bold flavors, DIY authenticity, and locavore sensibilities. There's no need to stray from these tenets on Turkey Day — we've sifted through the best à la carte takeout options around town and put together an entire Thanksgiving spread full of hipster charm.

What to Drink: Wild Turkey whiskey washed down with tallboys of PBR or Tecate, obviously. If wine is more your speed, try to track down some food-friendly, indie-spirited orange wines. After dinner, go for hipster-digestivo-of-the-moment Fernet Branca or another Italian amaro like Nonino or Averna.
