good family restaurant for Thanksgiving

no name is fine. $100 out the door, or it could go up to $120. The more I think about it the more I wish for spoon bread, squash casserole, collard greens, okra, stewed tomatoes--and some kind of fowl. I.e., Southern cooking. And pecan pie. Paleo be damned (sorry Nick).

Thanksgiving

Looking for an excellent restaurant for Thanksgiving with our grown children, one of whom lives in Bushwick (others coming from out of town). A Southern regional place would be nice, but doesn't have to be that traditional (turkey not required or even particularly desired). Price could be up to $80 pp. Needs to be accessible via subway and walking.

OK, will post on outer boroughs. But probably Manhattan is preferred. Price could be up to $80 or more each. We're already spending a fortune doing 4 days in NYC, so what's another $400 (with wine and dessert)?

He's more of a neo paleo, that is, he believes the philosophy and eats mostly meat and lower carb veggies, the sort our cave dwelling ancestors could harvest in down time from hunting megafauna. That said, he is also willing to make an exception for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and so on--if he can find a gym to make it right the next day.

We could go anywhere the subway will take us. Daughter lives in Brooklyn, so happy to go there as well.

Staying at Kitano, Park Ave. at 38th. Looking for an excellent restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner for 2 parents, 2 grown kids, one of whom is mostly paleo. Doesn't have to be totally traditional; in fact something a little unusual would be nice. Southern would be great. --Al

Quiet restaurant for late dinner near Village with good food

For Wednesday after 9 or 9:30 PM near Rubin Museum (150 W 17th St). Quiet talk, good food and wine, not too expensive, and no pressure to eat and leave. One of us has dietary issues, so no hot spicy ethnic. party of 4.

Best Indian buffet in Manhattan?

Most Indian lunch buffets are disappointing, but this need not be so. Gaylord in Chicago, for instance, is top notch. I have found nothing in Manhattan even close, including Chola which is OK. Can anybody suggest a really excellent Indian lunch buffet? I am thinking North Indian, but also love South Indian veg.

quiet place for group to dine, converse mid-town

Thursday dinner Feb. 7, seven or eight old friends meeting to talk and dine. Would like mid- to lower priced, non-trendy and quiet with good European or American food. Some locals, some out-of-towners.
