For the first time since 1888, Thanksgiving and the first night of Hanukkah converge on the same day, Nov. 28. To celebrate "Thanksgivukkah," Eventi, a Kimpton Hotel in New York, is offering a special menu at their restaurant, Humphrey.
The mix-match menu of traditional Thanksgiving foods and Hanukkah favorites will be available both in the restaurant and for in-room dining for guests staying at Eventi. The tables at the hotel restaurant Humphrey will be decorated with both a menorah and cornucopia side by side to celebrate this special "Thanksgivukkah" day.
"Thanksgivukkah" menu options will include green onion and zucchini latkes with crème fraîche, jalapeño brandied apple sauce, and fresh cranberries ($12), and "The Ultimate Thanksgiving Sandwich," made with roast turkey, cranberry chutney, green apple and cornbread stuffing, and grandma’s gravy served on a choice of marble rye or toasted sour dough bread ($21). For dessert, diners will get to taste a pumpkin cheesecake with candied cranberries, malted milk chocolate ice cream, and "gelt" — cranberry sauce molded in the shape of a dreidel ($12).
For guests not interested in a "Thanksgivukkah" dinner, traditional Thanksgiving and Hanukkah menus are also available upon request.
