Thanksgiving is for family, friends and food. But who said you had to make that turkey yourself? For the cooking-averse, dine out in style this Thanksgiving for a mess-free kitchen. Make an adventure of the day by taking our ferry into Manhattan from Conner’s Highlands where kids 12 and under ride free! The following restaurants will be serving up a holiday ready meal, so all you have to do is make a reservation. Now that’s something to be thankful for!

Palm Court at The Plaza Hotel

Balthazar NYC

Balthazar Restaurant

A French brasserie inspired fixture on the NYC restaurant scene since 1997, Balthazar has been receiving rave reviews for their use of simple ingredients and consistent techniques.  But don’t take our word for it, read this excerpt from a review by Robin Raisfield of New York Magazine: “Schiller’s may be Keith McNally’s newest nightlife nexus, but Balthazar is his masterpiece, an evocation of a Paris brasserie that outglows anything within Brie-tossing distance of the Seine. Yet for all its visual impact and despite McNally’s uncanny skill at creating a place that remains hot longer than most of its patrons’ relationships, Balthazar’s tender braised short ribs, shepherd’s pie made with duck or grilled dorade with herb sauce and romesco sauce is exactly the kind of brasserie fare you would like to remember having had the last time you strolled the Boulevard St-Germain.”
