It’s 2019, and here’s a fact: You don’t have to cook for Thanksgiving these days! Make life a little easier on yourself, and consider visiting one of the many Long Island restaurants serving up a delicious holiday meal this year. Not sure where to go? Here are three picks that are sure to offer the best holiday experience.


From 1 to 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving, this Roslyn restaurant will serve a prix fixe meal for $68 (or $28 for children). Starters include roasted butternut squash soup, apple and endive salad, baked brie, and short rib ravioli, followed by turkey with herb stuffing and cranberry-pecan chutney. Turkey haters can also opt for pan-roasted halibut, Long Island duck breast, or prime rib. Apple cobbler, pecan pie, pumpkin pie, and chocolate torte round out the meal.


In Stony Brook, Restaurant Mirabelle puts on a fantastic feast for the holiday. For $55 for adults and half that for kids, you can check out the buffet, which features a raw bar and cheese display; soup and salad station; carving station with turkey, prime rib, leg of lamb, smoked ham, and rack of pork; traditional hot and cold sides; and desserts, including a chocolate fountain.
