Anyone know of places which will be open? Preferably in the $30. - $40. per person range. Thanks!

    I had dinner at Rosie's on the River in Port Chester the other night (borders Greenwich). On each table there was a Thanksgiving Dinner menu. Unfortunately, I didn't pay attention to what was being offered as I am going to my cousin's for dinner. There is a new chef and the food has gotten a lot better. The decor can still use some updating.

      Port Chester does not qualify as Northern Westchester and Greenwich is not what the OP was talking about when they asked about nearby CT (that would be Danbury or Ridgefield). Sadly, I do not have a suggestion.

      Opentable.com lists several Westchester restaurants with reservations open for Thanksgiving.

        We've had some great Thanksgiving dinners at Plumbush in Cold Spring. Not sure of the price points these days.

          Check out Peter Pratts Inn in Yorktown. Excellent food, traditional atmosphere.

            I like Peter Pratts, but don't think the $30-$40 pp price range will work--here's their Thanksgiving day a la carte menu: http://prattsinn.com/thanksgiving_din...

            Traveler's Rest in Ossining (Route 100) is open and serves a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

                We ended up at John-Michael's and it was wonderful! The dear old 1775 building itself is the perfect setting for Thanksgiving, with its big stone fireplaces burning. We first enjoyed romaine salad with house-made duck pastrami, sun-dried tomato bits, and brown sugar dressing, and gnocchi with braised short ribs and poached egg. All delicious! Our entrees were the Turkey-stuffed roast turkey, with an assortment of traditional sides and the fennel-rubbed duck breast with fennelkraut and mashed potatoes (a special request). The turkey was moist and excellent, and the turkey stuffing, made with the dark meat added another layer of turkey-ness to the flavor. The duck was marvelous ... cooked exactly to my request ... and the fennel seed rub was a terrific complement to the rich duck, savory, but with just a hint of sweet element (not overwhelmingly sweet, as you get at so many places). While we tried to resist dessert, all that we saw looked so good! We both chose the Granny Smith apple crisp with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. Delicious! Any other apple would have made it too sweet, but the tart Granny was the perfect choice along with the other sweet components. Ultimately, we did choose to go over our budget, but we both feel it was worth it. 3 courses for 2, plus a bottle of Pellegrino, 1 glass of wine, 2 espressos, and tax came to $128. Not something I'd do too often, but I'll certainly go again!

                    Great choice! We have not been to JM lately (they were not on HVRW this year) but have always enjoyed our meals there.
