Looking for a restaurant that serves up Turkey and Mashed Potatoes - Any suggestions?

Hi, I love this website. I am looking for a restaurant in nyc that serves a great dish of turkey and mashed potatoes. Maybe a weird request, but I am taking a young lady to dinner and she mentioned that she loves turkey and mashed potatoes.

She also mentioned that she likes chicken (but she likes turkey more!). I tried searching for comfort food or southern restaurants but couldn't find anything.

I'd like to find a restaurant with a cool vibe and good food, nothing crazy. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. Oh and I need to find (and make reservations) a place for dinner at 6:30pm. Thanks everyone...have a great weekend!

        I don't know about Cafeteria or Chat 'n' Chew, but Friend of Farmer does not have a cool vibe -- more like rustic farmhouse.

          Ditto. Rustic farmhouse or having dinner at Grandma's house. When I went it seemed pretty empty for dinner, too. I guess it's more of a popular brunch destination.

            Definitely ask to sit upstairs if you go.

            Cafeteria has a cool vibe. Chat & Chew is fun, but a bit retro. I would go with Cafeteria.

              WOODY MCHALES tavern on w14th (near 8th ave) currently has a turkey & mash special. i haven't had it, as it's a special, but it caught my eye. it's a nice place, you might try that them you want an inexpensive pub atmosphere.

                I love the "Thanksgiving dinner" at Good Enough to Eat (which is a great avoid the brunch lines place for dinner),but again it's a country farmhouse feeling and not the cool vibe of someplace like Cafeteria.
