Black Eyed Suzie’s

Kingston
Pre-orders are sold out; walk-in orders are available on Nov 22-23; pickup, offsite pickup, or delivery in Saugerties, Kingston, Woodstock, and Rhinebeck on November 23, 12-6 p.m.

The Kingston catering company delivers on 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, crudités with avocado dip, and other apps. For the main spread, assemble a feast of herb-roasted turkey breast, butternut squash 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.

The Greekish

Nyack
Order by November 18; pickup November 23


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 for $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, arugula and cabbage salad, and, of course, hummus with tzatziki. End this entire affair right in the way of a warm, toasty roasted pear cobbler with halvah crumble.

Handsome Devil LLC

Newburgh
Pickup November 24


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 lathered 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 macaroni and cheese, apple pie baked beans, and Carolina cole slaw. Offerings are a la carte, so feel free to design your order exactly the way you want it. For dessert, you could opt for staple treats like apple pie and pecan pie. But if you want to really stay on-theme, grab a half tray of banana pudding.
