Thanksgiving in Manhattan

woody26 May 1, 2014 05:17 AM

Can anyone recommend where to have a good Thanksgiving meal in afternoon after the Macy's parade in Manhattan please?
Was at the Redeye Grill Midtown last year which was good but wanted to try somewhere else this year.

    I would recommend Stella 34 at Macy's on the 6th floor. Wonderful Italian restaurant. While it is still early, don't let time slip away as Thanksgiving gets closer, as this is prime space at that time of year.

      Macy's is normally closed on Thanksgiving day, so that would probably not work. (Unless they do open at 8pm like they did this year Ugh)

        They'll most likely be open again. ;)

        Either way, Stella 34 has a separate entrance so they can be open when Macy's is closed for the evening. They could open on Thanksgiving even if the store is closed. It's worth looking into if the OP is interested.

      Here are three threads from last year that you should find helpful:

        Last Thanksgiving we had dinner at Bubby's Meatpacking location.
        Upscale, amazing buffet, donation goes to the food bank. I think I paid $60 pp. Well worth it.
