Last-Minute Ideas for Thanksgiving
In between getting our new lights and holiday tree up, we managed to travel along the BID and find some things happening in the for Thanksgiving on Fifth! The list will probably grow, but here goes:
200 Fifth: Hosting their annual Thanksgiving Buffet Dinner
Alchemy (56 Fifth Avenue): Serving their regular menu plus a turkey dinner, 12-9
Benchmark (339 2nd Street): Serving a 3-course prix fixe menu, $70
Los Politos 2 (148 Fifth Avenue): Serving Brunch 11 - 4 and prix fixe dinner (wine, appetizer and entree' for only $22)
Brooklyn Porridge Co. (741 Union Street): Making a lot of great sides and desserts for Thanksgiving. It might be too late to order but maybe there is extra to pick up last minute?
The Chocolate Room (51 Fifth Avenue): it's too late to pre-order their fabulous desserts, but that doesn't mean you can't pick something up today before hitting the road!
Picado Y Vino (327 Fifth Avenue): Open 12-3
ACME Wine and Spirits (487 Fifth Avenue): Open 11- 3. Offering a special Thanksgiving 4-Pack of wine for $49
Both Fleischers (192 Fifth Avenue) and Russo's (312 Fifth Avenue) were offering turkeys by order, but it might be too late. Check with them, just in case, if you are interested. They have the good stuff!
Plus, many of our bars will be open all night. Freddy's (12 pm - 4 am) and South (7 pm - 4 am) will be available to turn the South Slope's Thanksgiving into a party!
If you are visiting a friend's house, don't forget the flowers from great 5th Avenue shops like ZuZu's Petals, Blooms on Fifth and Jasmine Floral Designs.
