Thanksgiving is all about gratitude — and, of course, the food. Nyack’s restaurants, bakeries and purveyors of specialty goods are ready to contribute. Following is a sampling of the options.
For those who would prefer not to cook, several Nyack restaurants are offering dining in, and some are providing both dine-in and take-out.
“We’re pleased to offer our patrons the option of dining with us, or ordering for pick-up,” said Constantine Kalandranis, owner, The Greekish. “Our menu includes traditional favorites with a Mediterranean flair, such as turkey brined in lemon and oregano, hummus, tzasiki, pita, and potatoes whipped with Greek yogurt and dill.”
Hudson House of Nyack is also offering both dine-in and take-out. In addition to the traditional bird, the menu includes roasted salmon, braised short rib, and quinoa stuffed squash (vegan) as alternatives, as well as a tempting selection of the restaurant’s signature desserts.
Hudson Market on Main is serving full Thanksgiving feasts with all the trimmings for pick up. “Our take-out meal serves four, and includes roasted turkey breast, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, three sides, bread, butter and six cookies — all for $75,” said Mark Davidoff, Manager, Hudson Market on Main and Director of RCC’s Hospitality and Culinary Arts Center.
In the dessert category, the RCC’s Hospitality and Culinary Arts Center is offering a pop-up pie shop produced as part of the professional baking program. The shop’s array of traditional pies uses locally sourced ingredients such as Hudson Valley apples. Additional offerings include mini pumpkin bread loaves with maple crumble and spiced sugar cookies.
While amazing breakfast and lunch sandwiches are on the menu, Nyack newcomer Farina Caffe is an artisanal bakery truly meant for people who like to eat dessert first. For Thanksgiving, there will be pies, as well as whole flan, red velvet cake and carrot cake, plus the shop’s dizzying array of lovingly crafted baked goods.
Nyack’s weekly Nyack Farmers Market is another valuable Thanksgiving resource, bringing a bountiful harvest of fresh local produce and specialty goods to holiday tables. For last-minute needs, the Market will be open on Wednesday, November 24 — the day before Thanksgiving.
“For many families, Thanksgiving 2021 will have special meaning,” said Davidoff. “Many will be together again after more than a year of isolation. Many have experienced illness, and in some cases, loss. Coming together around the Thanksgiving table to enjoy a special meal will be welcome comfort and relief.”
Dine-in reservations and advance orders for take out meals and desserts are recommended for all Nyack establishments. Patrons should also note that COVID protocols remain in effect in Nyack.
