Thanksgiving Reservations You Should Make Today

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, because I just love to cook. But that’s not everyone’s cup of tea. It’s endless hours of prepping, baking, cooking, and sometimes when it’s all done, you’re too exhausted to enjoy the day. For you guys I picked out some awesome restaurants that have prix fixe Thanksgiving dinners on their menu. Make reservations soon, these are some pretty yummy menus!



Tom Colicchio’s beautiful, upscale, Farm-To-Table restaurant is located on the Eastside of Manhattan, Gramercy to be exact, with a great view of the East River. This is the priciest of my choices for Thanksgiving dinners, but this Top Chef Judge’s eatery is well worth it. The 3 course menu includes Pumpkin Pesto, Heritage Turkey, and Pecan Apple Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream. The meal is served family style.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
