As the United States gears up to celebrate Thanksgiving, which falls on November 25 this year, restaurants in New York City are offering some of the tastiest cuisines at value prices to mark the festival of gratitude.
Restaurants in New York City, which earlier refrained from offering Thanksgiving dinners, will welcome the festival with 'value-centric' menus. Here's a list of most celebrated restaurants in New York City that are offering exclusive Thanksgiving feasts at luring prices.
Pera Mediterranean Brasserie
Relish the Thanksgiving celebrations with delightful appetizers at Pera, which is offering pumpkin bisque with cranberry compote and grilled kale Caesar salad; Parmigiano Reggiano and imported Spanish anchovies. The Mediterranean restaurant also has hickory-grilled wild salmon on the Thanksgiving menu, along with preserved lemon, crispy fried oysters, roasted tomato and pickled onion that make for fantastic side dishes for turkey and lamb.
Or indulge in a three-course Thanksgiving platter at the New York City's most famous Eastern Mediterranean restaurant. Priced at $49, the feast features pumpkin flatbread with house-cured lamb prosciutto as appetizer and honey-lavender glazed leg of lamb, stuffed with seasonal dried fruits, pine nuts and rosemary. What's more? The feast is accompanied with feta-cheese gratin as an alternative to the more traditional roast organic turkey. Caramelized Brussels sprouts, chestnut and sausage stuffing, cranberry sauce and gravy are also on the menu.
They have dessert as well! While pumpkin pie with cinnamon whipped cream gives an Eastern Mediterranean taste, chocolate brownie Sundae, candied walnuts, and candied pumpkin vanilla ice cream add to the feast. Pera will celebrate Thanksgiving on November 25 from 12:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Munch on the $42 four-course meal at the Italian restaurant, Fiorini, offering butternut squash-filled ravioli with light brown butter sauce and shaved Parmigiano cheese as a starter.

Fiorini will service between 3 and 9:30 p.m. on Thanksgiving.
This restaurant, which specialises in Belgian cuisine, has an amazing Thanksgiving offering.
