Set the scene.
The holiday season is officially upon us which means an abundance of entertaining. Living in the most culturally diverse place in the world, we as New Yorker’s are spoiled when it comes to food selection. If you don’t feel like cooking this year and are staying in the city, I’ve rounded up my top five picks of where to have your Thanksgiving dinner.

One of my new favorite spots, The Noortwyck, is offering an à la carte menu with traditional turkey-centric options paired with small plates featuring foie gras, caviar, and truffle. This isn’t a stuffy fine-dining situation—it’s just a nice, cool place to eat an elevated Thanksgiving meal. If you can’t make it to the Noortwyck, their pastry chef is baking 3 classic pies that are sure to be the star of any Thanksgiving dinner. Reservations via Resy
