I have nothing against turkey, but we've no family here and can't cook a big meal because we have no oven in our studio. So we wanted recommendations for something different. Something that isn't Thanksgiving.
We need a place that is open on the big day and doesn't serve turkey. We'll go anywhere. We like Chinese, Indian, Latin, Middle Eastern, Thai. We're sadly ignorant of Korean, Vietnamese and most African cuisines.
Ideas? Suggestions for other things to do on the day?
I'm reviving this thread in the hopes of new suggestions for 2011.
I'll be in NY on Thanksgiving and I'm looking for restaurants which are open on Thanksgiving but not serving turkey.
I was thinking of trying Fatty 'Cue but it looks like they are not open. I'm looking for something interesting, not fine dining, and I was thinking deep-fried bacon would be perfect. Oh well...

I know that Soba Totto is open on Thanksgiving and they probably won't serve the traditional American Thanksgiving dinner. The other restaurants in that group might be open as well. It's worth calling and asking.
Ma Peche is open on Thanksgiving and doing the Beef 7 Ways.
