GAL APPROVED: 525LEX for Thanksgiving FeastBy Delaina Dixon | November 23, 2011 | Entertainment, Gal Approved
Thanksgiving is only a day away. If you still haven’t figured out where you’ll be eating (and who is doing the cooking), why not switch it up this year and dine out? The DivaGals discovered one NYC restaurant, 525 LEX Restaurant and Lounge, which will be serving up a major Thanksgiving feast, when we attended the Multi-Cultural Food and Wine Event inside Guastavino’s last Friday night. Hosted by BCA, the non-profit organization supports diverse entrepreneurs in the hospitality and food service industries.
We couldn’t get enough of 525 LEX’s BBQ pork slider with Hudson Valley apple coleslaw at BCA. Sous Chef Adam Tyler shared what’s on the menu Thursday night. “In addition to our regular menu, we’ll have a prix-fixe dinner,” he shares. Over four courses, choose between a Cesar or arugula salad with bleu cheese dressing; roasted butternut squash soup with crispy pumpkin seeds or Andouille sausage and chicken gumbo; roasted turkey with blood orange cranberry sauce and gravy, or herb-crusted N.Y. strip steak with horse radish sauce; and for dessert a maple pumpkin pie or apple crisp with ice-cream. Sides are served family-style and include cornbread sage stuffing, roasted garlic mashed potatoes and saut├⌐ed green beans. The meal is $45 per person. Reservations are recommended.
525 LEX is located inside the Marriott Hotel on 49th St. and Lexington Avenue. 646-448-9336.
