As all you New Yorkers know, the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade is right around the corner. That means there is going to be an overload of turkey and tryptophan coursing through your veins. Ultimately putting you in a bear-like hibernating state during Black Friday, and maybe until Cyber Monday.
If you're looking to escape the typical turkey day trance, hail a cab to 7th street between 1st avenue and Avenue A, to indulge in the Bourgeois Pig. This is a trendy East Village wine bar that serves up great wine and tapas that are both delicious and wallet-friendly. So nix your plans to have the probable overcooked bird and order up a baked brie cheese board for $17. This cheese board comes with fresh grapes and honey. Pair that alongside the lamb Morrocco tartines for $11, and your mouth will continue to thank you the rest of the night.
Before you order up these mouth watering bites, make sure to pair with one of the many quality wines available. One of the best choices is the French merlot reasonably priced at $52 a bottle.
So if you're looking for a sweet spot to celebrate pre-Thanksgiving, check out Bourgeois Pig. Who knows, you may even catch Santa making his cameo in Greeley Square on your way home Thursday morning.
