What restaurant did you eat at on Thanksgiving?

If you had your Turkey Day dinner at a restaurant -- even if it wasn't turkey -- please share. Tell us about it here, and next year I and anyone else needing a place to eat will use the search engine to find this post and maybe get ideas.

Me, I ate at a Mexican restaurant in Queens so I can't write about it here. But it was packed with happy families and instead of being alone I felt a part of a big happy fiesta.

  1. We ate at home, but did notice that the following places were open and serving a Thanksgiving meal - posting for "the record" so to speak, as I generally have no idea what's open:

    Table d'Hote
    Bistro du Nord
    Cafe d'Alsace

      1. We had a last-minute reservation at Roberto Passon on 9th Ave. and 50th Street.

        Not recommended.

        We didn’t opt for the Turkey dinner prix fixe. Instead, we ordered a la carte.

        The marinated pan seared scallop was terribly bland (and this was supposed to be marinated?) and dry; we had a decent Fettucine with mushroom and truffle oil (but have had better versions of the mushroom/truffle-sauced pasta in other places); and our entrees, chicken with cheese and prosciutto and the veal piccata were, again, dry, but this time, over-salted.

        Good service.

        The wine list was boring and un-inspiring.

        1. We went to Landmarc last night - it was pretty good. They had a turkey dinner with all the fixings, but I had a strip steak instead. My boyfriend had the pasta special. Probably the highlight though was dessert - cotton candy! It's not on the menu but you can ask for it. Everybody in the restaurant looked at our big pink basket as it came to our table. Yummy!

          1. We had a superb (no suprise) early dinner at Aureole yesterday. We all had the lobster and corn chowder--delicious, followed by the carmelized scallops and sweet potato gnocchi---also delicious (we're not turkey fans). Since we've missed dessert the last two visiits, we received all of the desserts--all delicious. The debonair Alex and Ken took wonderful care of us. The restaurant was very full, yet the service was flawless.
