What time is best to book Thanksgiving Meal after Macy Parade?

Need input on what is the least stressful plan for eating after parade on Thanksgiving. Our plane leaves out early on Friday morning so I was thinking lunch would be best. 2 teenage girls with their mothers...Want a nice tradional lunch but doesn't have to be real formal. $ is a consideration but we know it will be costly....

Please send suggestions...Staying at Embassy Suites....Any good lunch or dinner spots not to missed in that location?

The best advice I could give you is to call ahead and ask your hotel about thanksgiving dinner packages at restaurants by you. Your hotel may even have a sweet deal. They usually know best and sometimes have special discount rates for people staying at their hotel. Enjoy NYC on turkey day!

The Embassy Suites downtown, right? that's near the family neighborhood, Tribeca. A wonderful New American restaurant there, The Harrison has their Thanksgiving menu online -
and you can book through www.opentable.com
It's $65 per person. and starts at 3PM

There are many restaurants listed on the opentable site that are serving Thanksgiving dinner. If you leave midtown after the parade and head down to either Greenwich Village, Soho, or Tribeca, you will still be pretty close to easy transportation to the hotel, and also find some smaller, more reasonably priced places.

Wow, I think that sounds wonderful.

Any other suggestions for dining around Embassy?

We will arrive around 8 in the evening so we are planning to eat around Embassy....nothing too fancy.

I read about Century 21 for shopping, what else is popular with teens?

What time does most of the shopping close?

Most stores are not open on Thanksgiving - if that's what you're asking. And the night before they're unlikely to be open esp late.

Century 21 is generally better quality at a discount. OK for teens - but a lot may be too mature and too $$. They're probably better off at the lower priced chain places - and Chinatown for tschotkes.

Okay, that helps alot.

I was looking for shopping the evening we arrive...near Embassy Suites.

May not have time but always good to have options available.

We should get to hotel about 8 and will need to eat. I am looking for choices nearby.
