A lot of New Yorkers don’t cook at home, even if they can, simply because there are so many choices and food options in the city. New Yorkers who don’t want to cook on the holidays have created their own unique traditions. (Think the Jewish practice of eating Chinese food on Christmas.)
This year JapanCultureNYC decided to put a Japanese twist on Thanksgiving that would let us eat out but still cook our own food. We’ve decided to go to Gyu-Kaku’s All-You-Can-Eat Thanksgiving Lunch.
Gyu Kaku is a Japanese barbecue restaurant where guests grill their own yakiniku at the table. Although New Yorkers have to settle for a tabletop gas grill rather than the charcoal grills used in Japan, you’ll still have a memorable dining experience while cooking and eating quality slices of beef, chicken, and pork. There’s plenty of seafood and vegetables on the menu as well.
With three locations in New York, you have plenty of options for a Japanese-style Thanksgiving. And you can still tell everyone you cooked a holiday feast.
