It may be hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and will soon be upon us. If you’re not in the mood to cook the full dinner this year (or are limiting the number of relatives that you’ll be gathering with), here are some options for having an alternative turkey day feast where you can also support local businesses.

The 1770 House Restaurant & Inn
Chef Michael Rozzi and The 1770 House Restaurant & Inn present Thanksgiving 2020 in two ways — a new “to go” option, for pick-up before Thanksgiving Day, and time-honored “to stay,” Thanksgiving Day service, in the main dining room and downstairs at the Tavern.
For home celebrations, “Thanksgiving To Go” is a special dinner package that serves up to 10 or provides plenty of leftovers for smaller gatherings. All that needs cooking is the 14-pound organic Amish turkey trussed with herbs and house spice blend. Estimated cooking time is three hours with instructions and meat thermometer included.
Five cooked and prepared sides, gravy, dinner rolls and dessert pies need only re-heating. Included are Chef Rozzi’s sage and giblet gravy; brioche stuffing with sausage and golden raisins; cranberry-orange relish; pan-roasted garlic Yukon gold potato mash; southern style sweet potato casserole; roasted Brussels sprouts with almonds and lemon butter; and Tate’s apple crumb and pumpkin pies.
“Thanksgiving To Go” is $500 and must be ordered by Friday, November 20, for pick-up either Tuesday, November 24, or Wednesday, November 25, from noon to 3 p.m.
For those who would like to enjoy Thanksgiving by dining in at The 1770 House, Chef Rozzi is creating a three-course prix fixe feast with traditional and alternative holiday selections at $125 per person plus beverage, tax and gratuity. Wine pairings are available by wine director Michael Cohen, who oversees the restaurant’s 250-bottle wine list. Dinner will be served from 2 to 6:30 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, and reservations are required due to limited seating for social distancing.
The 1770 House Restaurant & Inn is at 143 Main Street, East Hampton. For more information, call 631-324-1770, or visit 1770house.com.
