Thanksgiving, Delivered

Words by Keven Amfo

09 November 2020

In this topsy turvy year, think outside the box for Thanksgiving and get your meal to-go.

The holiday season of 2020 may not look quite the same as years past. As we navigate and adjust to the dynamics of the new normal, seize the opportunity to try something you may not have previously considered for your celebrations. Thanksgiving has traditionally consisted of a massive meal, prepared en masse over hours – or days – in the kitchen. Perhaps this year, it might feel nice to have someone else do that legwork for you. Discover these options for a delivered Thanksgiving meal, so you have more time to sit back and enjoy your wine.

Daniel Boulud Kitchen

Expect an elevated Thanksgiving experience if you order from Chef Boulud. The menu features many traditional items, but they’re complemented by some new, welcome additions such as Poached Maine Lobster Salad and Mushroom Fricassée. The classic items are enhanced with French techniques and ingredients like comté and caramelised chestnuts; the free-range, organic turkey has been brined and pre-roasted to juicy perfection. Apple, pumpkin and pecan pies are all included.

Bubby’s

If you’re seeking a meal that might harken back to childhood, or grandmother’s cooking, Thanksgiving by Bubby’s is warm and traditional in the best of ways. Both turkey and ham are on the menu, as are seven sides, including ambrosia – an old-fashioned favourite. Four kinds of pie are included with every order, and those already familiar with Bubby’s baked goods will know that these are a highlight.

Marlow & Daughters

Brooklyn’s beloved butcher will be selling three types of turkeys this holiday, plus other meats if you’re thinking to go the non-traditional route. Although you will need to prep and cook it yourself, they’re making it as straightforward as possible with a brining kit and included instructions – and the sides are all pre-made. They’ve even thought about the four-legged members of the family; special Thanksgiving dog food is on offer through 26th November.

The Polo Bar

Prepared family-style, the Polo Bar’s Thanksgiving At Home is a comprehensive meal of traditional items with a bit of a twist. The brussels sprouts are glazed in maple sherry, in lieu of rolls there are popovers with maple butter and calvados adds some depth to the gravy. Add on a selection of items from their usual menu and bottled cocktails – wine pairings are available as well, to remove all of the guesswork from the day so you can truly relax and enjoy.

Crown Shy

Michelin-starred FiDi restaurant Crown Shy offers their take on Thanksgiving at home. The delicious and thoughtful menu features turkey two ways, mac and cheese and roasted honeynut squash with chestnuts; most importantly, however, there is a ‘Next Day Sandwich Kit’ so nothing goes to waste. Splurge and add truffle to the gravy, then tack on a cocktail mixer, turn on the football, and enjoy.

Hearth

The Thanksgiving feast from cosy, neighbourhood restaurant Hearth is exactly what you’d think it would be, classic, comforting and warm. Their ethos of fresh, seasonal food is reflected in the menu with items such as Roasted Greenmarket Vegetables with Honey and Thyme. Wine and drinks are on offer as well; make sure to opt-in for both dessert options and the cider from upstate as an aperitif.
