Partake in the holiday spirit and check out some great Thanksigiving day specials and fab fall cocktails.

Madison & Vine is offering up a to-die-for Thanksgiving menu at $45/person. Choose from an appetizer of butternut squash and pumpkin bisque with toasted pumpkin seeds or a fall salad of frisse and seasonal greens (with roquefort cheese, maple glazed walnuts, warm bacon vinaigrette). Move on to the entree, where you can choose from roasted turkey with mashed taters, candied sweet potatoes, haricot vert, cornbread, stuffing, cranberry orange relish...basically, the works. Or you can opt for slow roasted prime rib with mashed potatoes, sauteed baby veggies, with a delicious port wine sauce. Still not enough options for you? They also offer white truffle ravioli with toasted pine nuts in a brown butter sage sauce. Dessert brings more goodies in the form of pumpkin pie a la mode or hot apple pot pie, also a la mode.

Head to Andaz 5th Avenue for their three course Thanksgiving menu for $75/person, $35/child, or $100 with a wine pairing.  The first course consists of Hudson Valley greens with honey roasted squash with cranberry vinaigrette or roasted chestnut soup. Take your pick of roasted turkey, New York strip steak, or seasonal bass, all served with brussel sprouts, candied yams, stuffing, green beans, and cranberry relish. Make your way to scrumptious dessert for your choice of harvest pie with cranberry and apple filling with a caramel walnut glaze or sweet potato pumpkin pie. Make your reservation here. Seatings will be from 2-9pm.
