Thanksgiving in a restaurant

I've never eaten out for Thanksgiving, but this year it is unavoidable for 6 or 8 of us.
Any suggestions of the best there is? I don't mind expensive, but it has to be delicious!!

Best restaurants in New York

As a former New Yorker, I will be in NYC for three nights. Where are the BEST places to eat dinner.Neighborhood doesn't matter, and I don't care if it's a dive or very pricey. Only snafu: we don't eat red meat. Thanks for suggestions.

I am celebrating my 50-something birthday with 15 people this Sunday night. I would like to go somewhere casual and lots of fun. I thought of places like "The Great Greek", or perhaps a place with singing waiters. Does anyone know if that even exists? Anybody have any suggestions of a real fun spot for an adult birthday?
