An Astorian Thanksgiving - It's Coming!
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so I thought I'd start to think about it early this year, seeing as I completely glossed over Halloween. It's nice to see a lot of businesses in the nabe are planning early, and all the themed menus and fun offers are getting me excited. Here's a few to get you started.
Koliba - Even though it's probably not the first place you think of for a Thanksgiving meal, I expect that it'd be delicious. Their Thanksgiving menu includes traditional things such as turkey with all the fixins, but they also have Slovak/Czech style dishes on the menu. You'll find this dinner to be a prix-fixe, ranging from $15.75 - $24.75. 31-11 23rd Avenue, Astoria. 718.626.0430
Cavo - I like visiting Cavo on special occasions, since it feels kind of celebratory and a little fancy, too. Taking a peek at their Thanksgiving menu, I spied yummy things such as roasted butternut squash soup, oven roasted free range turkey, brussels sprouts, chestnut cranberry stuffing and more. 42-18 31st Avenue, Astoria. 718.721.1001
Astor Bake Shop - Everyone knows that ABS is totally worth its salt when it comes to dessert. They've been baking up a storm with seasonal treats and are taking pre-orders for Thanksgiving seasonal pies. This rustic apple beauty certainly caught my eye. 12-23 Astoria Blvd, Astoria. 718.606.8439
Vesta - These guys always do a great job of hooking you up for Thanksgiving, whether you choose to dine in or take out. I found the take out option pretty cool, as they feature an entire Thanksgiving feast to-go (including their signature, Baby Jesus Cake) for 8-10 people. Find out what Thanksgiving Foods are included here. 21-20 30th Avenue, Astoria. 718.545.5550
John Brown Smokehouse - Further on the topic of a take-home Thanksgiving feast, how about something with a smoky, bbq twist? JBS has a few tasty options for you, including a whole pecan smoked turkey with sides and a special order of pecan or pumpkin pies. Prices vary based on how many mouths you want to feed. Email them directly to find out more and to place your order. 10-43 44th Drive, LIC. 347.617.1120
