Iconic Broome County Restaurant Sides We Want on Thanksgiving
Every year for Thanksgiving (except during the pandemic years) my wife and I spend time with her sister, which includes a great dinner. I really look forward to it every year.
Since I have no clue how to cook or prepare dinner, my wife and her sister handle all the hard work that comes with purchasing, assembling, and cooking the dinner. There have been times I would like to suggest that they prepare too much food for Thanksgiving, but since I'm not the one doing all the hard work, it's best to be quiet and enjoy all that delicious food.
I do get asked from time to time what I'd like as the main course or a side. The only thing I must have at every Thanksgiving dinner is cranberry sauce. Or as my wife describes it - gelatinous goo.
But you know what would be good as a side for a Thanksgiving dinner? Something that you really enjoy from one of your current or past favorite Binghamton area restaurants. I asked that question on Facebook, and I received some interesting responses.
It seems from the many responses, that mac-n-cheese dished from various Southern Tier restaurants is the number one choice. Some reactions included the Spicy Slaw fromThe Beef, Little Venice's Fettuccini Alfredo, Utica Greens from Oaks Inn, and the mac n cheese from Smokey Legend Gourmet BBQ, to name just a few.
The list of sides you'd love to have for Thanksgiving dinner is really interesting and makes me hungry for these excellent choices. Check out below more of the types of sides from your favorite restaurants perfect to add to that Thanksgiving dinner.
