It’s almost that time of year again when we give thanks and eat turkey with friends and family. This year, instead of slaving over an elaborate Thanksgiving feast let someone else do the cooking. After all, it is New York and some of the world’s best chefs are preparing a memorable feast this Thanksgiving. From Boulud to Kreuther, here are nine top restaurants to celebrate Thanksgiving this year.

This year for Thanksgiving, try something different at Hakkasan. Instead of green bean casseroles and starter salads, guests can try the mushroom stir-fry with Chinese broccoli and delectable dim sum, like the roasted duck and pumpkin puffs and fried prawn dumplings with plum sauce. Best of all, the troublesome turkey centerpiece can be substituted with the restaurant’s signature Peking duck. Served with Mandarin pancakes, spring onion, cucumber and hoisin sauce, the crisp and juicy Peking duck at Hakkasan New York is a mouthwatering poultry alternative that will satisfy the entire family. Hakkasan will be open from 1 pm to 3 pm.
