There’s nothing quite like Thanksgiving in the Big Apple. The festive atmosphere paired with a holiday feast at Gaby Brasserie Française makes for a scrumptious start to the holiday season. On Nov. 27, the charming brasserie, in its vibrant Art Deco setting at the stylish Sofitel New York, will host a Thanksgiving Day dinner prepared by Executive Chef Sylvain Harribey, winner of Food Network’s Chopped.
The prix fixe dinner begins with complimentary warm, spiced apple cider. For the first course, guests can enjoy a choice of Brie en Croute, oven-roasted puff pastry with dried cranberries and almonds, and baby spinach drizzled with aged raspberry vinaigrette, or Mushroom Pithivier, a wild mushrooms tart served with port wine sauce. Entrée selections include a choice of Roasted Stuffed Turkey Breast, a slow-roasted Lancaster-County turkey breast stuffed with wild mushrooms and served with sweet potato flan, chestnut vegetable ragout, Delmarva stuffing, and cranberry blood orange sauce, or a Pan-Seared Pork Chop with chestnut potato purée, roasted Brussels sprouts and tarragon sauce. For dessert, guests can indulge in an assortment of homemade mini-desserts served family-style. Selections include chocolate crème brûlée, pumpkin cupcakes, mini pecan pie, fruit tarts, white chocolate cheesecake and macaroons.
Youngsters ages 12 and under dining at Gaby will also enjoy a three-course dinner menu starting with Pigs in a Blanket with crudités and ranch dressing. A slow-roasted Lancaster-County turkey with mashed potatoes and gravy will be served as an entrée, followed by vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce for dessert.
Gaby Brasserie Française’s Thanksgiving menu will be available from 12 to 9 p.m. and is priced at $62 per person. The children’s menu is $24.50 for children 12 and under, exclusive of tax and gratuity. For reservations or more information, call 212-782-3091 or visit www.gabynyrestaurant.com.
