Need Thanksgiving reccos for 6, not too pricey

I realize it's late to be asking this, but I've just learned that I will be dining in a restaurant with friends for Thanksgiving and not in someone's home, as had previous been arranged.

I looked online and most of the decent places are charging $75-100 per head, not including wine. My group would prefer a turkey theme (though I'd be open to anything - my suggestion was Pulino's Pizzeria, which I recommend if you haven't been).

Any thoughts? I imagine $40-60 a head is more our speed.

        Scroll down to the $60 and under section, looks like some good options there.

          Not on that list are Cibo which is $55 this year, and La Mangeoire which is $45. Also Jubilee is $49. Everyone offers a traditional turkey dinner along with all their other offerings. As restaurants go, I find Jubilee a bit dark.

          A number of restaurants on the Upper West Side also do T'giving Day.

            Thanks for the help, all. I booked Blue Fin in Times Square yesterday as they only $45 a head & there's a choice of apps that includes sushi. :) In case there's anything preferable, I'll look into your lists & suggestions however. Much appreciated.

              Blue Fin's sushi is OK, not great, IMO, but I've only eaten off the regular menu.
