One year, MG family decided to have Thanksgiving dinner in a Midtown restaurant. And, it was one of our best holiday dinners ever. Whether mom needs a break from holiday cooking, visiting aunts & uncles want a taste of NYC or it’s just what the fam prefers, a Thanksgiving dinner out can be just as heartwarming as a dinner at home. Remember, it’s about the company, not the location. Here are MG’s picks for the best restaurants in NYC for Thanksgiving dinner 2013…
