The four-star restaurant will offer a four-course dinner for $125. There's an $85 supplement if you'd like white truffles with the pasta course.

Before you make the phone call, note that the restaurant association also reports that 14 million of us will have a restaurant provide part of the holiday meal and another 4 million will have a take-out Thanksgiving feast.

Topping Rose House's menu includes first courses of pickled cauliflower and golden raisins with Peconic Bay scallops; heirloom kale salad with toasted pine nuts, currants and pecorino Romano; celery root and American caviar with butter-poached oysters; and apples, ruby-streaks mustard greens and warm brioche with a torchon of foie gras.

Second-course choices: spaghetti with wild mushrooms, and those white truffles, if desired; paccheri with lamb ragu; squash risotto with Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and crisp sage. Third-course options: organic turkey, 30-day dry-aged rib-eye, or seasonal sea bass, with potato puree, roasted autumn vegetables, cranberry sauce, stuffing and gravy.

Desserts are mini-pumpkin pie with cinnamon whipped cream, warm chocolate tart with hazelnut ice cream, and gingerbread cake with pear mousse.
