This cozy East Hampton restaurant will be serving a multi-course meal this Thanksgiving: $90 for adults and $40 for children. The meal includes a salad of roast beets, apples, and sweet potatoes, followed by a butternut squash bisque and pimento toast. Diners can choose between a traditional turkey dinner with mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and Brussels sprouts; a roasted smoked ham; a New York strip; a cedar-planked salmon; or a vegetarian entrée of acorn squash. For dessert, the restaurant is offering a warm figgy pudding, selection of crumb pies, and classic sweet potato and pumpkin pies.

Expect big portions of turkey—choose your favorite part or let the chef offer up some of everything—sausage stuffing, butternut squash, mashed potatoes, and sage gravy. Amplified by a roster of impressive appetizers, like Rozzi’s Montauk fluke tartare with wasabi tobiko, this 2 to 8 p.m. feast, which costs $95 for adults and $40 for kids, is a bucket list meal.
