15 Places for Thanksgiving Dinner in NYC

With Thanksgiving around the corner, everyone is pretty much in the same boat figuring out what to do or confirming Thanksgiving day Plans. Worrying about the menu, or if the turkey will turn out right, family squabbles, or running out of wine. And a slew of other things can cause overwhelming stress around the holiday. But living in New York City [NYC] provides us with unlimited options when it comes to dining at any time during the year and that includes a number of places for Thanksgiving dinner.

Like many of you, I enjoy time with my family, setting the table, laughing, talking, and cooking, but this year I am not in the mood to cook or do anything. Fortunately, I am traveling and do not have to worry about cooking.

So, if you do not want to cook this year; the great news is NYC has several options and we are sharing 15 of them today. Restaurants are offering indoor and outdoor seating as well as several to-go options for Thanksgiving dinner in NYC.
