I'm looking for a moderately priced spot that would be festive for Thanksgiving Eve for a group of friends - somewhere along the Eastside, lower or upper. I know that several places have Thanksgiving menus, but not so sure about Xgiving Eve. Suggestions appreciated.
The restaurants which have T'day special menus will also be open T'day eve with their regular menus. That said, their T'day decorations will already be in place. You asked for Lower or Upper East Side - I'm in the middle. I would check the menu at Cibo. La Mangeoire can be pricey a la carte, but good on the prix fixe.
