It's been almost three years since Bryan and I had a traditional, American Thanksgiving dinner (something he grew up eating every year!). That was back in 2010, when we enjoyed a traditional turkey dinner at Upstairs on the Square, one of Boston's most well known Thanksgiving dinners.
In 2011, I ended up cooking an Asian twist on the traditional Thanksgiving meal for the first time, complete with oven roasted duck, Chinese sticky rice "stuffing", and kabocha pumpkin mochi cake. In 2012, we went on a three week trip to Australia and New Zealand with Bryan's family, and thus ended up celebrating an American holiday as foreigners in Sydney, Australia.
This year, sort of on a last minute whim (I had some free hotel coupons I had to use up), we decided to travel to New York City over Thanksgiving weekend.
I know, I know - I'm not done with the Tokyo-Kyoto-Osaka series yet (I promise I will get back to it really, really soon), but I just wanted to share with you a preview of our New York trip, including some fantastic eats we enjoyed.
