Thanksgiving on Deadline

Tue, 11/08/2022 - 09:31
Turkey braciola is the main event of Nick and Toni's Thanksgiving take home menu this year.

There are many options to dine in and dine out this year, but for some businesses ordering deadlines are looming. One new one is the Cookery, which now has a store in the old Simply Sublime space on Springs-Fireplace Road in East Hampton. It has a number of options to make a Thanksgiving feast memorable, but orders must be placed by Monday. It will have a limited number of heritage turkeys to roast too, in various sizes, but those must be ordered Thursday.

A sampling of the Cookery's other offerings start with soups. They might include creamy cauliflower, leek, and potato; vegetable and bean, or spicy seafood gumbo. Appetizers are roasted fresh figs with gorgonzola, shrimp cocktail, chicken or shrimp cashew spicy dumplings, Burmese crab cakes, and vegan vegetable samosas. In addition to turkey gravy, traditional stuffing, mashed potatoes, and orange and cranberry sauce, there are several vegetable sides to choose from. These are caramelized sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts with roasted garlic and leeks, spinach and chard, a field green and micro sprout salad, and sauteed wild mushrooms with Cipollini onions. Rolls are offered herbed or gluten-free with a side of Sag Harbor hot honey butter.

Dessert options are just as bounteous, with two cheesecakes, including pumpkin swirl, a brown butter sugar cake, olive oil almond cake, pumpkin sweet potato pie, cranberry raspberry tart with charred apples, pumpkin frangipane with berries, and tiramisu. 

Nick and Toni's, which will be closed on the holiday, has a Thanksgiving at home a la carte option. The East Hampton restaurant's ordering deadline is Friday, Nov. 18. Starters are baby kale salad and an artisanal cheese plate. Entrees are a turkey braciola stuffed with wild mushrooms, Parmigiana-Reggiano, and herbs or a butternut squash and ricotta lasagna with spinach, mozzarella, and, tomato. Sides and add-ons are a Newlight bakery sourdough boule, roasted brussels sprouts, sweet potato puree, roasted mushrooms, sausage and leek stuffing, vegetarian stuffing, and gravy. Halsey Farm apple crostata, bourbon chocolate pecan or pumpkin pies, almond biscotti, and tartuffo make up dessert. Each menu item serves two people with more servings for dessert. 

All orders must be placed by 4 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 18. Pickup will be between 3 and 5 p.m. on Nov. 23.

Also due by Friday, Nov. 18, are Thanksgiving takeout orders for Townline BBQ. The Sagaponack eatery has a Southern-accented holiday menu with a smoked turkey with apple cider gravy, collard greens, cornbread, sweet potato puree, orange cranberry sauce, cornbread stuffing, roasted brussels sprouts with shallots and bacon, and Townline's classic mac and cheese. Dessert is a Jack Daniel's chocolate pecan pie. Serving sizes vary. Pick up is on Nov. 23 between 1:30 and 5 p.m. Orders should be placed by phone at 631-537-BBQ1.

Look for additional holiday offerings in next week's paper.
