NYC restaurants serving Thanksgiving dinner

By Nicole Levy and Jillian Jorgensen

Let someone else do the cooking for you this Thanksgiving.

Just because you're not eating at home (and cooking a multi-course meal in a tiny kitchen) doesn't mean you can't enjoy a traditional holiday feast: Plenty of New York City restaurants are serving turkey dinners with all the traditional fixings on Nov. 23. If you're looking for vegetarian options or something less conventional, some spots are offering steak, leg of lamb, fish and risottos as entrées. And the best part about going out with your family and friends is that you won't have to do the dishes after dessert.

Here's where to make your reservations before they fill up:


For a meat- and dairy-free Thanksgiving meal, head to Urban Vegan Kitchen for a prix-fixe menu that puts an emphasis on vegan comfort foods. After their butternut squash soup or roasted beet salad, you've got three basic entrée options: a classic Thanksgiving plate (pictured) with herbed seitan instead of meat, a vegan spin on fried chicken and waffles, or a quarter-pound mushroom-barley burger served with fries or salad. Cap things off with pumpkin spice cake or chocolate mousse.($65 per person, 41 Carmine St., Manhattan,
