A Williamsburg Thanksgiving, Restaurant Style

Whether you’ve been too busy to make plans, not feeling social enough, or too unenthusiastic to even think about cooking anything– you’re in luck. Many of the wonderful restaurants in Williamsburg, Brooklyn are offering Thanksgiving pix-fixe menus so you won’t have to worry about cooking, inviting people, or being invited to anything. Just bring a friend and treat yourself to what will probably be way better than anything you or anyone you know has the ability to cook.

Dumont
The restaurant, not the burger spot, is offering a $65 prixe fixe 3-course (plus dishes to share) Thanksgiving menu. One of the dishes to share is the absolutely phenomenal Dumac and Cheese! Main courses range from a pumpkin ravioli to the traditional turkey with cranberry, stuffing, etc. Desserts are still TBD.

Rye
Though unfortunately Rye doesn’t have their Thanksgiving menu posted, they are taking reservations now. I have unfortunately have tried to go to this place no less than 4 times and for some reason have still not been able to actually eat there. My roommate, however, absolutely RAVES about this place day and night. Their regular menu looks really awesome, featuring such things as a wild mushroom lasagna, beet ravioli, a Long Island duck breast, and braised short ribs– which, as we all know are about 50% less revolting-looking than regular-sized ribs.

Dressler
If you’re feeling a little bit fancy, or you you feel like you need to treat yourself a little more, but well within a $100-range, Dressler might be the answer for you. It’s kind of like a turned-up Dumont, with a Thanksgiving prix-fixe at $85 with 3 courses and petit-fours. You’ll totally feel like a prissy little bitch (in a good way!) wanting dishes like the Oxtail Ragout and Venison Saddle (with spaetzle on the side!). But fear not veggies, there is a main course option besides the latter dish and traditional turkey: the Butternut Squash Agnolotti. Dessert has a choice of a chocolate souffle cake, panna cotta, and a pumpkin brioche pudding!
