Thanksgiving for the Chronic ProcrastinatorGiven how inevitable ruined turkeys and last-minute rat plagues are, it’s no surprise that we are frequently called upon to suggest emergency Thanksgiving takeout options. Obviously, there’s always General Tso and his sparerib armies, but thanks to a cutthroat restaurant marketplace, there are actually a number of places around town that can supply you with a same-day Thanksgiving meal. We enumerated four of them yesterday morning on Good Day New York and see no reason why Grub Street readers should be denied the same guidance. Happy Thanksgiving to all Grub Street neighbors! We’ll be back on Monday.

Fiamma, Tailor, and Turkey Carry the Weight This Week
This week’s issue carries a lot of freight, and there isn’t much room for consideration of the gluttonous arts. So the food content is slim — but potent! Adam Platt reviews two of the most anticipated debuts in recent years, those of genius dessert chef Sam Mason’s Tailor and Beard Award–winning chef Fabio Trabocchi’s New York debut at Fiamma. But that’s not all: There’s an In Season recipe for turkey-salad sandwiches, excuse us, tramezzini di tacchino, courtesy of ’inoteca’s Eric Kleinman; a guide to four very excellent Thanksgiving alternatives courtesy of Rob and Robin; and four new hotel restaurants likewise. We figured that with all the eating and cooking that’s going on this week, that should be plenty of food writing to get you by.
