Black Eyed Suzie’s

The Saugerties catering company delivers this Thanksgiving with everything from artful hors d’oeuvres platters and hearty mains to sweet side dishes and picture-perfect pies. No matter how large or small your party is, treat them to at least one Thanksgiving order of Suzie’s appetizer samplers. The Hudson Valley cheese platter, for instance, comes with homemade fruit and nut crackers, herb crostini, roasted nuts, olives, and preserves. Pair it with charcuterie and pickled veggies, crudit, and other apps. For the main spread, assemble a feast of herb-roasted turkey breast, butternut squash and kale lasagna, maple-glazed carrots, crispy Brussels sprouts, and a sliver or two of the Hudson Valley apple or pumpkin pies made with a flaky, all-butter crust for a lunch or dinner that is sure to delight.

Blue Mountain Bistro

Kingston’s Blue Mountain Bistro is a dream for home diners who crave comfort food without the kitchen hassle. Treat guests from start to finish with a Thanksgiving order of pumpkin cider bisque, roasted root vegetables, and hormone-free local turkey. Plus, Blue Mountain Bistro has two varieties of stuffing on the table: sausage and fennel, or cornbread and kale. For $40 apiece, the catering business also offers individual Thanksgiving dinners, which come with your choice of stuffing, potatoes, gravy, two vegetables, cranberry raspberry orange relish, and a slice of pie. Said pie, we might add, comes in the form of Hudson Valley apple, pecan, pumpkin, and even pumpkin cheesecake.

The Greekish

Chef Constantine Kalandranis consistently brings creativity and fresh takes to classic cuisine at The Greekish. His Thanksgiving takeout specials are no different. Order the Nyack hotspot’s to-go box, which feeds a family of four and costs $225. Familiar favorites get a Mediterranean twist, like the lemon-oregano brined turkey, bone broth gravy, and sumac cranberry sauce. Feast on flavorful sides like roasted cauliflower, Greek yogurt and dill whipped potatoes, chicory and cabbage salad, and, of course, hummus with tzatziki. End this entire affair right with a warm, toasty roasted pear cobbler with a sesame-halvah crumble.

Handsome Devil LLC

Handsome Devil LLC brings southern sensibilities to Orange County at its kickin barbecue spot in Newburgh. Not feeling turkey this year? Set your Thanksgiving table with smoked spiral ham with cherry glaze, whole smoked beef brisket, or St. Louis-style pork ribs instead. Plus, traditional smokehouse sides bring an additional twist to the holiday. Sub out stuffing and mashed potatoes for Handsome Devil’s collard greens, gooey mac and cheese, honey butter cornbread, and Carolina cole slaw. Offerings are a la carte, so feel free to design your order exactly the way you want it. For dessert, they do offer staple treats like apple pie and pecan pie. However, if you want to really stay on theme, grab a half tray of banana pudding.

The Hudson House of Nyack

This historic Rockland County eatery serves an atmospheric dine-in Thanksgiving meal for those who want the full restaurant experience. However, its takeout special is equally as tempting, with three-course meals costing $65 apiece. Start with a butternut squash bisque with pumpkin seed pesto, then move onto an herb-roasted natural turkey with brioche stuffing, golden raisins, sausage, and chestnuts. If you’re not feeling poultry, opt for roasted salmon, braised short rib, or quinoa-stuffed squash instead. Indulge in satisfying sides like garlic-whipped potatoes, cranberry-orange relish, and green beans with onions. Then, finish it off with sticky toffee pudding cake, warm apple crisp, and a salted caramel-chocolate cake that’s gluten-free.

Main Course Catering

Its emphasis on farm-to-table flavors makes Main Course a top pick for creating a Hudson Valley Thanksgiving at home. With a number of vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free, and gluten-free dishes, the catering company’s holiday menu is ideal for parties that cater to individuals with food allergies or restrictions. Mix and match with options like soft mushroom pate and garlic crostini, whole-roasted natural turkey, fall vegetable lasagna, roasted acorn squash, and cornbread stuffing. For smaller groups or formal dinners, consider the prix fixe Turkey Day package instead. For $32/person, diners get a mixed green salad, plus white and dark meat turkey, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and whipped Yukon gold potatoes. Tack on an order of coconut quinoa pudding, Dutch apple pie, butterscotch pudding, and more for a sweet conclusion to a farm-fresh meal.

McKinney & Doyle

McKinney & Doyle brings its upscale comfort food aesthetic to its Thanksgiving menu through dishes that tempt even the most discerning of palates. Lean into the cozy elegance of the occasion with appetizers like delicata squash and truffle risotto, asparagus stilton pastries, and Alsatian shallot tarts. Then, dig into butternut squash gnocchi, crispy apricot-garlic pork ribs, and a root vegetable stir fry. You can never go wrong with a Thanksgiving order of pumpkin pound cake, chestnut biscuits, or sweet butter rolls on the side. To end the evening, treat guests to one of the bakery’s signature sweets. The sour cream apple pie is a fun take on the classic, while the carrot cake is a fall-friendly alternative that everyone will love.
