Tired of talking turkey? Soured on cranberries?
If you really just can't face the traditional Thanksgiving Day meal, a handful of Huntington restaurants will be open and offering alternatives. Here are a few:
House of India has been a Huntington hotspot for 11 years. In fact it has been voted Best Long Island Indian restaurant for three years in a row. Owner Sukhdev Singh says that it is due to the fact that they use the freshest and finest authentic ingredients from Northern India.
House of India's cuisine offers a choice of many different dishes from chicken, lamb, and seafood to vegetarian. Some specialties include Chicken Malai Kebab which is chicken breast marinated in yogurt, almonds, nuts, pistachios, ginger, garlic and a touch of nutmeg; Curry Lamb seasoned with Indian spices; Tandoori Jumbo Shrimp flavored with ajwain, ginger, and garlic barbequed in a charcoal clay oven; and Malai Kofta, homemade cheese balls flavored with spices and curry sauce. Dishes can be made mild, medium or hot according to taste.
House of India will have its full menu available for Thanksgiving. The hours are 11:30-3 pm for lunch and 5:30-10 pm for dinner and is located at 256B Main St. in Huntington Village. For more information call 631-271-0059.
Also open Thanksgiving Day and offering alternatives is Yummy Sushi Huntington. Owner John Chae said his restaurant is offering a special Thanksgiving Day sushi platter but its regular hot-dish menu is available.
He said he expects a lot of pickup orders for the day because not everyone wants turkey.
His restaurant is open from noon to 6 p.m. Phone (631) 673-8888.
And Kabul Restaurant at 1153 East Jericho Tpke., Huntington is open from noon to 5 Thursday. Its menu includes such traditional Afghan fare as sambosa goushti, pakaura badenjan and baba ghanoush. Phone (631) 549-5506.
And, if none of those ideas works for you, many fast food places, such as on New York Avenue in Huntington Station, are open until mid-afternoon.
