As explained in a recent Sandwich of the Week, there’s something about the Thanksgiving sandwich that seems to magically build on each of the individual elements, making it a completely different meal altogether from the traditional Thanksgiving plate. Sliced turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and mashed potatoes (if you’re lucky) all mashed together into a sandwich makes for a messy, sweet-savory meal that’s about as comforting as a sandwich can get. Add a cup of gravy on the side, and you’re in official sandwich heaven.

Here’s a list of eight killer Thanksgiving sandwiches that you can find in New York City year-round.

Amity Hall: This Greenwich Village bar has a menu that’s better than most, and items like tempura string beans, a wide variety of fry toppings and stuffed burgers, and breakfast pizza show some real creativity coming out of the kitchen. But if you’re in the mood for a sandwich, their Thanksgiving Dinner (oven-roasted turkey with onion-thyme stuffing, green apples, and cranberry-walnut mayo) is the way to go.

Angela’s Sandwich Shop: This cult favorite hidden away on the corner of Sixth Avenue and 58th Street serves a massive variety of sandwiches, but the Thanksgiving Dinner sandwich, with grilled fresh turkey breast, Cheddar cheese, cornbread stuffing, brown gravy, and cranberry sauce, is a masterpiece.

Carve: This unassuming sandwich shop that also happens to make some killer pizza has built up a reputation for its Thanksgiving sandwich: fresh-carved rotisserie turkey, apple stuffing, and cranberry mayo team up on a ciabatta roll, and the result is one of their top sellers.

Toasties: This sandwich shop mini-chain has six locations in the city, and while it’s an ideal lunchtime option, you might feel the need to take half of their Thanksgiving sandwich home for dinner. Fresh-roasted turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and brown gravy hit all the right notes, and you can choose between 15 bread options and even more additional toppings (bacon and provolone? Why not!).

One Mile House: This Lower East Side bar’s menu is full of some wacky creations, including bacon-Cheddar matzoh balls and wing sauce-topped burgers, but their Day After Thanksgiving Sandwich is no joke. Roasted turkey topped with gravy, onion-thyme stuffing, and cranberry sauce is a major fan favorite.

Mejlander & Mulgannon: This old-school, no-frills Bay Ridge deli makes a killer cold cut sandwich. They’re also masters of the art of the hot sandwich, and their Thanksgiving Hero comes with fresh-roasted turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and mayo.

Harding’s: This Flatiron newcomer is about as far from a sandwich shop as you can get, and they’ve elevated the Thanksgiving sandwich to gourmet status. Their "Giving Thanks" uses smoked turkey on a crusty roll, and partners it with cranberry sauce and both stuffing and mashed potatoes. A bowl of gravy on the side makes this Thanksgiving sandwich one of the city’s best.

‘sNice: Even if you’re looking to go the vegan route, there’s a Thanksgiving leftovers sandwich out there for you, courtesy of ‘sNice, which has locations in the Village and Park Slope. This one comes with Tofurky, Brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, gravy, and cranberry relish.

The 8 Best Barbecue Restaurants In New York City

Notable here is the rib sampler, which includes three versions&mdashKansas City, Memphis, and Texas beef, all moist and charry, cooked nice and slow. The mac and cheese is nirvana. A variety of spoon-licking sweet and spicy BBQ sauces on the tables allows you to dress your own meat.

(file photo credit: Clipart)

Here, the pulled pork sandwiches rule: juicy, and zesty, with an impressive scoop of smoky, ambrosial meat on a bun, and great BBQ sauce on the side. The chili cheese fries are sinful and irresistable. And if you&rsquore hankering for a corn dog, look no further.

Daisy May’s BBQ (credit: Yvo Sin)

The Kansas City Sweet and Sticky Ribs take first prize&mdashnot evident by their name is their smoky flavor. The saucy Carolina pulled pork and the pulled chicken are both satisfyingly scrumptious. And the delicious, hearty baked beans sport pieces of bacon.

Ribs, anyone? (credit:

Their famously zesty chicken wings are addictive. The ribs are savory, fall-off-the-bone succulent&mdashmade with a dry rub. A delight as well is the spicy shrimp boil. Just don&rsquot skip the fried green tomatoes.

Delicious BBQ at Fette Sau. (credit:

The highly recommended brisket is fork tender and suffused with smokiness&mdashset off perfectly with a side of pickles. Also great is the pulled pork and smoked pork belly, which carries a whiff of bacon. Be sure to get a side of beans&mdashridiculously tasty and the regular and spicy BBQ sauces are delish.

Ribs from Georgia’s East Side BBQ. (credit:

Georgia&rsquos applewood-smoked, pulled pork sandwich contains a world of flavor. The beans are boastfully good. The beef brisket sandwich is overflowing and super tasty, especially with tangy, spicy BBQ sauces on the side. N/B: Cole slaw is fresh and not creamy, for those who favor it not glopped in mayonnaise.

The specialty here comes from the enormous smoker out back. Try the heavenly, dry rubbed babybacks and beef shortribs. Safe to say that the pulled pork, paired with a vinegar-hot pepper sauce is BBQ-transcendent. And the suicide chicken wings are, well, to die for&mdashdevilishly spicy but still packed with flavor.

Fried chicken lovers, take note: These chicken and biscuits don&rsquot mess around&mdashchicken is moist and flavorful on the inside, with spicy sauce and lemon butter on a flaky, buttery biscuit. Paired with collard greens and spicy black eyed peas&mdashdang. Note: Pies n’ Thighs is cash only.

Outdoor Dining Will Now Be Permanent and Year-Round In This Major City

There are hundreds of streets in New York City, but right now almost 90 are part of the city's Open Restaurants program. The initiative allows restaurants to use roads for safe outdoor dining during the coronavirus pandemic. At first, it was temporary, but many in the restaurant world support it continuing even as the weather cools off. It was originally scheduled to end on October 31, but Mayor Bill de Blasio has announced it will be made permanent.

Under the plan, restaurants can use eight feet of the street adjacent to their location for seating within a barrier. The sidewalk must be clear. Restaurants can even expand onto the adjacent property with that owner's okay. (Unfortunately, some restaurants won't be able to open their doors this winter, here are 9 Restaurant Chains That Closed Hundreds of Locations This Summer.)

In colder weather restaurants can use heating lamps and other electric heaters. Propane and natural gas heating systems can only be used on the sidewalk. Tents can also be used for warmth as long as half of it is open for air to flow.

As for if it snows and the "winter weather creates potential for inclement weather to impact road conditions, the City will engage the restaurant industry and other stakeholders to develop additional safety features to further strengthen roadway barriers," the city says.

The use of heaters and tents won't be restricted to New York City, though. Others like Chicago, San Francisco, and more are gearing up for colder outdoor dining, as well. Portable heating orders have skyrocketed from places like Amazon, Wayfair, and other companies, according to the New York Times.

Expect to see a few other interesting things while dining out this winter. Blankets will be in stock for customers to use and restaurant menus could look different. Some eateries are considering adding more comfort food — think warm and hearty appetizers, entrees, desserts, and even hot cocktails. For more, here are 5 New Things You Can Expect to See in Most Restaurants This Fall.

2 Perfect Sandwich Recipes From Anthony Bourdain

Anthony Bourdain has been a certified BUST crush for many years, and usually we are content to drool his delicious dishes on TV. But now, he has a new cookbook out, Appetites, that includes recipes that even those of us who are not so skilled in the kitchen can attempt and master. The cookbook contains recipes that Bourdain makes for his family: his wife is a professional martial artist, and they have a nine-year-old daughter.

“Mostly, these recipes are direct lifts from imperfect memories of childhood favorites: things my mom fed me, things I liked or loved to eat during the happier moments of my life — the kind of food memories I like to share with my daughter — along with a few greatest hits from my travels, and some boiled-down wisdom on subjects like breakfasts and Thanksgiving dinner, presented in an organized and tactically efficient, stress-free way,” Bourdain writes in the introduction.

We’re excited to bring you two perfect sandwich recipes — the Bodega Sandwich, and the Macau-Style Pork Chop Sandwich. Try them at home and let us know how they are!


Forget about pastrami: The iconic New York City sandwich is bacon, egg, and cheese on a hard roll — cooked on a griddle and served by someone who addresses you as papi or mami.

The language of New York City in the mornings is Spanish — or more accurately, Spanglish — and even the non-Spanish speakers lined up at the bodega counter usually make an attempt. It’s the last bastion of non-Starbucks breakfast — and maybe the last place in New York where construction workers, doormen, hedge funders, black, white, Asian, and Latin gather in one room, united by a single purpose: the bodega sandwich.

6 slices bacon
2 kaiser rolls, sliced as for a sandwich
4 large eggs
Salt and freshly ground black
pepper to taste
4 slices American or Swiss cheese

Plate lined with newspaper


Heat a large, heavy-bottom skillet or cast-iron griddle pan over high heat until hot, then add the bacon and cook until golden brown and crisp, adjusting the temperature if necessary so that it doesn’t get burned. If it burns, start over. (You can also cook your bacon in the oven see page 12.) Using a spatula or tongs, remove the bacon to the lined plate. Open the kaiser rolls and place them facedown on the griddle for 2 minutes to warm through and absorb some of that bacon grease. Remove them and park 3 slices of bacon inside each roll.

Crack the eggs into a medium mixing bowl, season with salt and pepper, and beat well. You’re not making scrambled eggs here, you’re making a kind of value-neutral omelet, so don’t worry about retaining big curds in the pan. Cook the eggs in the hot bacon grease until cooked through. Top with the cheese, distributed in an even layer, and let cook until slightly melty. Remove the eggs and divide them evenly among the rolls, folding and chopping as necessary. Close the sandwiches, wrap in foil for portability (if necessary), and serve with shitty coffee.


This sandwich, loosely inspired by a pork chop bun served to me for television in Macau, is possibly the most delicious thing in the book. We had a hard time shooting it, because everyone in the room kept eating the models.

4 boneless pork rib chops or cutlets (about 6 ounces each)
¼ cup soy sauce
¼ cup Chinese rice wine
¼ cup black vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
4 garlic cloves, peeled and coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon five-spice powder
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar, packed
1 large egg
½ cup all-purpose flour
1½ cups panko bread crumbs
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
2 cups peanut oil, for frying, plus more as needed
8 slices white sandwich bread
Chili paste, for garnish

Meat mallet or heavy-duty rolling pin
Sheet pan or platter lined with newspaper


Pound the pork to ¼-inch thickness, using the meat mallet. If using a rolling pin, be sure to wrap the meat in plastic before whacking it (and consider getting yourself a meat mallet).

In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, rice wine, vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, five-spice powder, and sugar. Place the pork in a zip-seal plastic bag or nonreactive container and pour the marinade mixture over, turning the chops to ensure that they’re evenly coated with liquid. Seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 12 hours.

Remove the chops from the marinade and brush off the garlic. Beat the egg in a shallow bowl and place the flour and bread crumbs in separate shallow bowls. Season the flour with salt and pepper. You may need to add a tablespoon of water to the beaten egg, to loosen its texture so that it adheres evenly to the meat.

To a large, heavy-bottom frying pan, add the peanut oil and heat over medium-high.

While the oil heats, dredge the chops in the flour, batting off any extra, then in the egg, then in the bread crumbs.

Test the oil with a pinch of bread crumbs. If they immediately sizzle, carefully slide the chops into the hot oil, working in batches if necessary to avoid overcrowding the pan and bringing down the temperature of the oil. Cook for about 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Remove the cooked chops from the oil and let drain on the lined sheet pan. Season lightly with salt.

Toast the bread until golden brown.

Assemble the sandwiches and serve with the chili paste alongside.

Hamill: City Harvest battles hunger in New York on Thanksgiving

Give her 46 million pounds of thanks this Thanksgiving.

Because that's how much food Jilly Stephens and her City Harvest staff of 150 — plus 4,000 volunteers and 54,000 donors — have distributed to the hungry of New York City this year.

"It's not just a rewarding job," says executive director Stephens, as the neediest month of the year approaches. "It's an honor. I say that because when I first learned of City Harvest, when I came to New York City nine years ago from working at an international aid foundation serving developing countries, I was astonished that there were people who were actually going to bed hungry in the richest city on Earth. Then I was staggered by how many were hungry. I started with City Harvest as a financial donor and a volunteer."

Then this British native used her managerial skills to run City Harvest and battle the Dickensian hunger in our glittering city of gourmet delis and deluxe restaurants, a city where children as hungry as Oliver Twist stand on lines at soup kitchens and food pantries to fill their hungry bellies.

Thanksgiving dinner in New York.

taking my first trip to New York thanksgiving week. Where should I eat my thanksgiving dinner?! Doesn't have to be traditional, just a place to kick back after an early morning watching the parade!

I went to NYC for the Thanksgiving Parade a few years ago in college and I stumbled upon a restaurant that I quite enjoyed afterward -- Astro. Since it was Thanksgiving day, I didn't search too hard for a restaurant and just wandered in there by luck. It's centrally-located, has an old-school NYC vibe to it and is low-key and friendly. It's a diner, so nothing fancy at all, but it did the trick giving me a tasty warm meal on a cold, rainy Thanksgiving day! They have great NYC deli sandwiches and your typical diner fare. Bonus points that it didn't break the bank considering everything else in the city is so pricey (though this may have mattered more to me then because I was in college :P).

Hope you enjoy the parade and your trip to NYC!
