Brooklyn Thanksgiving Vegetarian Options

Thanksgiving is not a day for vegetarians (and certainly not for turkeys), so in the interest of information sharing, here are a couple of options. There is the do-it-yourself vegetarian Thanksgiving dinner (with or without Tofurky) option and there are some interesting recipes here.

While there are any number of options in Brooklyn and New York City, there are a few we'll mention: Red Bamboo in Fort Greene is open for Thanksgiving dinner from 4PM-10PM. The three-course prix fixe menu is $19. The menus is online here (and looks like you can order for carryout too). They advise reservations.

Also, Foodswings, the Williamsburg vegan spot is offering a full Thanksgiving dinner from 5PM-10PM. The cost is $18. While Foodswings is a cool spot, it may not be everyone's thing on Thanksgiving, so perhaps it would be a good take out option if you call in advance. They're featuring "New England Turkey," by the way.

'Round Manhattan way, Counter on First Avenue in the East Village is offering a Thanksgiving dinner. It's noted for being insane on holidays, but if you don't mind a crowd, and reservations are still available, it could be a good option. Also in Manhattan, Candle 79 and Candle Cafe are each offering Thanksgiving dinners. Candle 79's prix fixe is $65 (PDF menu); Candle Cafe's is $50 (PDF menu) or you can order a la carte.

And, finally, for those who are interested, we'll mention the Adopt-A-Turkey Project, from whence the photo, above, of Blossom came. Twenty bucks gets you an adoption.

Super Vegan has a nice, exhuastive list of options, so head over there to find one.
