Sitting on the edge of the lake in Central Park, the Loeb Boathouse was built in 1950 to replace the Victorian boathouse from 1858 that burned down. This prix fixe, three-course dinner is only $65 on Thanksgiving, which is a substantial deal for New York City. If you want to get started early, you can hit the Macy's Day parade, then head across the street to the Boathouse. You'll start your meal with your choice of a nice selection of appetizers, including lump crab cakes, Atlantic salmon and oyster tartar, and the Boathouse salad. Your main course brings the choice of the traditional turkey and trimmings or some other options like prime rib of beef, Moroccan spiced cod, yellow fin tuna, pork loin or striped bass. Six different fall desserts will round out your holiday meal in one of New York's most scenic settings.
