Thanksgiving dinner at Top of the Mark

OnceUponABite | | Nov 28, 2007 10:41 AM

I hardly see any posts about people's experience eating out on Thanksgiving so I thought I'd give my input for next year's diners.

This year Top of the Mark offered a TG buffet that started at brunch time all the way to 10pm. The cost was $89 for adults and $49 for kids. A very good complementary champagne (all you can drink) were included.

The spread WAS very impressive. Overall, the non-tradition TG meals were fabulous. The seafood bar, the cavier bar, in general the seafood. Unfortunatly, the traditional turkey and stuffing were lack luster. (I much prefer when I make it myself!) The cost is high, but you do get a fabulous view and live jazz pianist playin the background. And if you don't feel like making the whole meal yourself, it's a nice place to get dressed up and spend a relaxing Thanksgiving meal.
