Let’s face it – there are four types of people on Thanksgiving. The one who spends two full days in the kitchen preparing for "the best meal I’ve ever made!" The family friend who shows up with the same cheesecake every year and acts like he’s part of the family. That random guest nobody knows who strikes up awkward conversations, and makes you thankful for family-friend-with-cheesecake. And then there’s that one you’ve been inviting over for years who never shows up. Where is that guy, anyways?

In honor of that non-traditional Thanksgiving lover who finds this holiday the perfect time to wine and dine out, we’ve rounded up the best Thanksgiving specials in Miami. Be sure to check back for additional restaurants as more menus become available.

The Dutch at the W South Beach Hotel & Residences will offer a home style prix fixe meal created by chef de cuisine, Conor Hanlon. Guests can feast on roasted turducken, root beer whipped sweet potatoes, classic gravy, pickled cranberry relish, cippolini onions, and confit turkey leg stuffing. A selection of pies will be featured by famed pastry chef, Josh Gripper, and will include pumpkin pie with a pretzel crust and cranberry sorbet; apple pie with vanilla ice cream; and sweet potato pie with rum raisin ice cream. The dinner costs $45 per person, excluding beverages, tax and gratuity.

Meat Market on Miami Beach is serving up dishes featuring executive chef and co-owner Sean Brasel’s twists on American classics. Guests can choose from the following dishes: Bell and Evans fresh turkey leg roulade, stuffed with brioche, Asian pear and lobster, and served with a spicy aji pumpkin sauce, with fresh cranberry gastric bok choy ($32); Bell and Evans fresh juniper and white cranberry-marinated sous vide turkey breast, wood grilled, with sweet potato flan, braised beet greens and vanilla Jack Daniel’s sauce ($35); or a mixed grill of three that includes the previous choices and also the Meat Market house made “ham” kurobuta pork belly, with orange and king crab salad and roasted macadamia nuts ($42). Finish off with the chocolate chip pecan bourbon pie with sour cream ice cream for $12.

Also on Miami Beach, Smith & Wollensky will be offering a traditional menu featuring classic Thanksgiving dishes like roasted butternut squash soup, winter greens, herb roasted turkey, roasted Brussels sprouts, potatoes au gratin, and duck fat roasted root vegetables.

Share All sharing options for: How Can I Make Roast Chicken the Star of Thanksgiving Dinner This Year?

Welcome to Ask Elazar, a column in which Eater staff writer Elazar Sontag answers your highly specific and pressing cooking questions.

Because of COVID-19 and the risk of travel, Thanksgiving dinner this year is just going to be my immediate family. Usually we’d cook a turkey, but there’s no way we’re going to make a 15-pound bird for three people. If I wanted to roast a chicken instead, how can I gussy one up to make it feel more holiday special?

To avoid six months of leftovers, I’m also going to be passing on the turkey and making a chicken this year. 2020 has been heavy-handed with chaos, disruption, and anxiety, and I’m thinking an extraordinary preparation of an ordinary bird is just the thing to achieve a sense of celebration without committing to a full day of cooking or a kitchen covered in turkey juice. But a lot of us eat chicken all the time, so I know it might not feel quite as special.

Done right though, a chicken can be pretty damn impressive. My go-to recipe, the one I’ll be following on Thanksgiving, is a pared-down New York Times rendition of an iconic roast chicken served at the San Francisco institution Zuni Cafe, which has been on the restaurant’s menu since before I was born it was immortalized by its creator Judy Rogers in 2002’s The Zuni Cafe Cookbook. After Rogers’s passing in 2013, the late Los Angeles Times restaurant critic Jonathan Gold wrote, “I have probably been to Zuni at least 25 or 30 times since Rodgers took over… and I have failed to order the chicken only twice.” The chicken lives up to the hype: It’s also a favorite of nearly every person I’ve crossed paths with in California.

When I first picked up The Zuni Cafe Cookbook, I was taken aback by how many pages the roast chicken recipe spanned. But working carefully through each instruction, there were no hidden steps or unexpected obstacles. It’s a simple dish, but one that requires care and patience and a very generous pinch of salt.

To make this chicken, you’ll set the process in motion the day before, liberally salting the bird, and leaving it uncovered in the fridge to dry out. Before putting the salted chicken in the oven, slip leaves of sage, thyme, and rosemary gently underneath the skin, and while the oven is preheating, place the bird in a searing-hot pan on the stove, where the cooking process begins. In the 500-degree oven, as the bird crisps, the herbs shine through the translucent skin. Your job is to watch lovingly over the chicken as it roasts, flipping it every 15 minutes or so.

When done, there is no prettier piece of meat. The skin is crisp, the flesh is juicy, and the flavors of sage and rosemary have seeped into the meat. The drippings are as good a sauce as any, and a perfect base for gravy. At Zuni, the chicken is served with an impressive warm bread salad. In my house, it’s served as-is: I eat this chicken year-round, making it whenever I have the chance, but it really is a perfect holiday dish.

There are so many reasons to roast a chicken instead of a full turkey this year. You can eat a breast and a thigh for dinner, and put the rest away for a chicken, stuffing, and cranberry sauce sandwich tomorrow. You’ll still get the experience of carving a bird, setting it ceremoniously at the center of the table, and then pushing it to the side as you fill your plate with mountains of candied yams, green beans, and mashed potatoes. And you won’t have to worry about defrosting an enormous frozen bird, or preparing for the inevitable bursting of the brine bag.

The tradition and nostalgia of turkey on Thanksgiving can’t be replicated. But the Zuni Cafe chicken is as good as the very best turkey: So good that this time next year, you might even find yourself craving it.

12 Classic Leftover Turkey Sandwich Recipes

As much as a full, delicious Thanksgiving feast is something to look forward to every year, the leftovers are just as exciting. Give roasted turkey, cranberry sauce, and that epic cheese board a second life on a turkey sandwich. Sliced or diced, leftover roasted turkey gets a new makeover in these enticing recipes.

There's nothing like layering all of the delicious leftover mains and sides on a flaky buttermilk biscuit or hearty rye bread the day after the holiday. A leftover turkey sandwich is an absolute must for lunch or dinner. However, these sandwiches can live beyond Black Friday, too. When you want to change up the pace from a traditional deli turkey sandwich for your weekday desk lunch, make use of tender, flavorful roast turkey. Cut the remaining Thanksgiving turkey into thin slices and wrap tightly to use for three to four days after Thanksgiving.

Some of our favorite leftover turkey sandwiches include one made with ketchup, chopped cornichons, and mustard (and even a smear of leftover cranberry sauce if you so choose!) a Cuban-inspired Spicy Turkey Medianoches made with layers of flavorful prosciutto and Swiss cheese and a slightly sweet Turkey Monte Cristo, which marries Thanksgiving essentials with the fixings of a classic grilled cheese sandwich.

So, instead of reheating Thanksgiving turkey in the oven with mashed potatoes and green bean casserole on the side for dinner, give each slice of poultry a delicious upgrade in these leftover turkey sandwich. They may even inspire you to roast turkey more than once a year!

The Cuban Kitchen: Miami Blogger Cooks Her Way Through Nitza Villapol Book

NitzaVillapol was basically the Julia Child of Cuba. She wrote dozens of editions of her cookbook, Cocina al Minuto, and she hosted a Cuban TV show of the same name for 45 years. In many Cuban kitchens, there's a well-worn copy of one of her cookbooks tucked in a kitchen drawer.

Christina Gomez-Pina, in Kendall, had a copy of the cookbook on her bookshelf. Her mother-in-law gave her Cocina al Minuto on Gomez-Pina's wedding day: "It sat on the shelf for nine years except for one time when I used it to make a dulce de leche cortadito."

Aside from making that Cuban coffee, Gomez-Pina didn't give the book much thought until she read Julie and Julia, a memoir about a woman who cooks her way through Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking.

By this time, Gomez-Pina had two children. She realized that the only people cooking the Cuban dishes her family enjoyed were aging. She observed that Cubans in her generation didn't have "signature recipes." There was no one her age who made legendary flan or who, like a grandmother she knew, made such transcendent croquetas that she was always asked to bring them to a party. People in her generation ate their relatives' dishes or they ate at Cuban restaurants, but they didn't cook this food.

Gomez-Pina had an epiphany. She thought:

Lessons Learned In La Cocina De Christina: Falling Flan And Exploding Rice

Thus Gomez-Pina launched what she calls "The Project." She started to cook her way through the 629 recipes in Cocina al Minuto, writing about her progress on her blog La Cocina de Christina. She drafted her first entry on July 14, 2009:

There was a steep learning curve as Gomez-Pina searched in the grocery store for ingredients she had never used--like fish heads--and as she got hands-on experience with cooking rules that were second nature for her elders.

Gomez-Pina chronicled how "Nitza Tried to Kill Me" when she followed Villapol's recipe for making Cuban-style white rice for the first time. The recipe instructed cooks to pour water into a pot of oil that had been heating on the stove:

She also learned that sometimes dishes made from the heart can be really, well, ugly as in the case of the Villapol recipes Gomez-Pina cooked for Thanksgiving in 2011. Upon reheating, her spinach pudding "turned into a dark green that resembled all sorts of bathroom jokes." The pumpkin flan broke when she flipped it. Relatives shook their heads knowingly--she didn't use enough cornstarch. Gomez-Pina wrote:

I'm Thankful for You Recordable Storybook

Walmart's Best Black Friday Deals 2013

Walmart, our second-best retailer for Editors' Choice Black Friday deals, has released its full Black Friday ad. And judging from the promotions below (which include some amazing TV deals and discounts on Apple products), we're pretty optimistic about what's to come for 2013.

Walmart Goes Big on Guaranteed Doorbusters

Last week we suggested there might be more guaranteed doorbusters this year, and we're pleased to announce that our prediction has come true. During Black Friday 2012, Walmart guaranteed three different deals for shoppers who showed up at the proper time if the store ran out of stock, the shopper received a voucher to obtain the item at the advertised price later, once inventory had been refreshed. Unlike traditional limited-stock doorbusters, these guaranteed deals were less risky for consumers who were deciding whether it was worth heading to a brick-and-mortar store on Thanksgiving.

Consumers must have responded well to the retail strategy, because this year Walmart will guarantee 21 of its doorbusters. That's seven times as many offers that theoretically can't sell out. There will be two waves of guaranteed deals: The first group will be offered from 6 pm to 7 pm on Thanksgiving Day, and another set of deals will debut at 8 pm until 9 pm. Walmart claims that if customers can't buy these goods during its Black Friday store hours, they'll receive it by Christmas at the latest.

That's all well and fine, but we only care about guaranteed deals if the prices are noteworthy. So what can shoppers expect from Walmart this year?

The Crazy TV Prices You've Been Waiting For

Emerson 50" 1080p LED-Backlit LCD HDTV for $288
It wouldn't be Black Friday without a doorbusting TV deal, and this is certainly an enticing big screen offer. Up until now, the lowest price we'd ever seen for a 50" 1080p LCD TV was $348. Walmart's deal on a third-tier manufacturer set drops the floor by an additional $60. While this set will likely be barebones without fancy "smart" features, this is about as good as it gets for big screen TVs our generous prediction for 55" TVs, for example, is a full $141 more than this.

Funai 32" 720p LED-Backlit LCD HDTV for $98
A 720p resolution isn't exactly the gold standard in visual quality these days, but when paying the absolute minimum is a must, you can't go wrong here. We've never seen a 32" LCD TV for this cheap before.

Samsung 51" 720p Plasma HDTV for $427
Although it boasts a lowly 720p resolution, there's no denying that $427 is a super price for an entry-level 51" plasma HDTV. That's $23 under our August mention of this model and it's the lowest price we've ever seen for a Samsung 51" plasma HDTV. (It also beats the current low for this model by $71.)

Vizio 60" 1080p WiFi LED-Backlit LCD HDTV for $688
Here's a case of deal deja vu: Last Black Friday, Walmart offered a strikingly similar Vizio for the exact same price. And while we've seen cheaper plasma 60" TVs since then, this remains an all-time low price for an LCD of this size. That said, we're predicting that there's room for this category to drop a bit further, to as low as $599.

Element 40" 1080p LED-Backlit HDTV for $178
Don't care about the brand of your TV? Walmart will offer the lowest total price we've seen for any 40" 1080p LCD HDTV.

Apple iPad mini 16GB WiFi Tablet with a $100 Walmart Gift Card for $299
While $299 is list price for this first-generation iPad mini, the hefty $100 Walmart gift card makes this promo exceptional. The lowest price we've previously seen for this tablet is $249, so if you factor in the gift card, this would be the best value we've ever seen for the iDevice. Even better? This is one of Walmart's guaranteed doorbusters customers who arrive between 6 pm and 7 pm on Thanksgiving will secure this price, even if local inventory runs out.

Apple iPhone 5C 16GB Smartphone with a $75 Walmart Gift Card for $45
We predicted that we'd see a greater number of "for profit" smartphone deals this Black Friday, and we also had a hunch that the latest iPhones would receive a special promotion this year as well. However, we're surprised to see the two deals combined. Walmart has been offering the 5C for $45 since mid-October, and starting at 8 am on November 29, shoppers can also get a $75 gift card to go with it. (Walmart will also offer the 5S for $189 with the same gift card, which is still noteworthy but less amazing, since we've already seen the 5S for $100 via Sprint and AT&T.)

HP Pavilion TouchSmart Celeron 1.5GHz 14" Touchscreen Laptop for $278
If you're itching to get a touchscreen laptop, but Best Buy's all-time low on a 12" ultraportable doesn't interest you, then check out this slightly better-equipped HP Pavilion TouchSmart. The 14-B109WM has both a bigger screen and a bigger hard drive than Best Buy's offering, and it only costs $28 more. Plus, it's one of Walmart's guaranteed doorbusters you're sure to bag the cheapest 14" touchscreen laptop we've ever seen, even if your local store runs out.

Monster Beats by Dr. Dre Solo HD Headphones for $114.95
We love Black Friday catfights amongst retailers because they usually yield better prices for consumers in this case, Target announced that it would offer these headphones for $119 on Black Friday. That would be a new all-time low price, if Walmart didn't just declare that it'll offer them for $4 less — and guarantee them to all customers who arrive between 8 pm and 9 pm on Thanksgiving. Before this, the lowest price we'd seen for these headphones was $130.

GoPro HERO3 White Edition 1080p Waterproof Digital Camcorder with a $30 Walmart Gift Card for $199
Shoppers on the lookout for a cool gadget for the holidays should take note of this deal. Before Black Friday, you might have had to pay $229 for this rugged camcorder. But thanks to Walmart, you can snag it for $30 less, with some extra spending cash to boot.

Noteworthy Discounts on Potentially Hot Toys and Games

Call of Duty: Ghosts for PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 for $39.96
The tenth installment of the wildly popular Call of Duty Series, Ghosts is certain to be at the top of every gamer's holiday wish list. Although we saw this game bundled with a $25 Dell gift card for $60 earlier this month, this is the cheapest upfront price we've ever seen for this game on any platform, and it beats the current price low by at least $16. What's more, Walmart's Black Friday price for CoD: Ghosts beats the leaked Black Friday prices at Target, Best Buy, and GameStop.

Furby Boom! for $29
Thus far, we've only seen one sale that has included the Boom! line of Furbys this Walmart offer is about 55% off retail price, and a new low. However, we suspect that the strangely-named Furby toy might get cheaper as we get closer to Christmas.

Sesame Street Big Hugs Elmo for $44
Despite being adorable, we wouldn't make a special trip to Walmart for the latest incarnation of Elmo. It's only $4 cheaper than what you could spend online now. However, this lil' guy was included on the Toys "R" Us Fabulous 15, so it might be one of those "it" toys that'll be hard to find the closer we get to Christmas.

Nabi 2 Kids' 7" 8GB Tablet for $99
This tablet is more than a year old at this point, so we can't attest to its "coolness." However, we can say this: Walmart will be offering it for the lowest price we've seen by $30.

Good Prices on Home Goods

Rubbermaid 30-Piece Easy Find Lids Food Storage Set for $6.92
If you're going to be doing your Black Friday shopping on Thanksgiving, you might as well pick up a cheap set of food storage containers to stow away those leftovers. This is the best price we've seen for any size set of Rubbermaid containers since last Black Friday, when Walmart offered a 28-piece set for the same price. (Similar 30-piece sets go for $48 or more elsewhere.)

Farberware 4-Slice Toaster Oven for $15
In keeping with our small appliance predictions, Walmart will slash prices on a bevy of countertop must-haves. A great example is this Farberware 4-slice toaster oven, which will be marked down to just $15 — making it the second-cheapest toaster oven we've ever seen.

Black & Decker 20-Volt Matrix Drill for $49
This Black & Decker drill looks fairly tempting at $49 after all, that's $11 below the current price elsewhere. Unfortunately, Walmart offered this exact drill for a buck less in July, so we know they can do better.

All in all, we were pretty impressed by the Walmart Black Friday ad because it promises the sort of all-time low prices that we've come to expect from the shopping holiday. We will certainly be seeing more ads in the coming weeks, so be sure to bookmark our Black Friday deals page and check back often to catch the latest in leaked ads, news, and predictions. You can also set up an email alert for future Black Friday features and deals.

Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Tonight is the premiere of the much anticipated new television series, Hannibal, based on the "Hannibal the Cannibal" character from Thomas Harris' Red Dragon, Silence of the Lambs, and Hannibal novels.

In homage to the serial killer gourmand and his namesake television show, we bring you some Hannibal-inspired recipes culled from equally morbid blogs from around the world.

Don't expect 'double handburger and finger fries'. Unlike real life serial killer and cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer, Dr. Lecter has refined tastes, including a love of opera, Bach, and human sweetbreads.

The recipes on the show had to reflect Lecter's fine palate, so we thought we could be of help, but producers wouldn't return our calls begging for a consulting gig, instead hiring James Beard Award winner, chef José Andrés to consult on gourmet cannibal recipes.

If the dishes below whet your appetite, check out the The Cannibal's Cookbook: Recipes and Remedies for Human Sacrifice for further inspiration.

If wine pairings aren't your forte, don't fret. You can always follow Dr. Lecter's advice and go with a nice Chianti.

Watch Hannibal grind his own meat:

Our sister paper, the OC Weekly, posted a delightful recipe for fresh fava bean puree, as prepared in the Puglia region of Italy, one of Hannibal's favorite countries.

The Sabotage Times teaches us how to 'dine like Hannibal Lecter" even going so far as to make some pairing suggestions, such as Chianti Classico or Chianti Riserva.

Here's a delightful recipe for brains, which calls for almond flour, oriental dried fruit, acacia honey, and two full-sized brains. If you can't find brains locally, you may be able to order them online.

Here's a recipe from the Cannibal Gourmet's blog. It calls for two to three pounds of flank meat (which translates to abdominal muscles -- who knew?).

1. "Hannibal Lecter" Lillet Cocktail

We thought we'd end this post on a positive note, so this last recipe is one hundred percent protein free. Dr. Lecter enjoys Lillet with orange as an aperitif, so why shouldn't you?

Hannibal Lecter recipe

1. Place orange twist in a chilled cocktail glass.

2. Combine Lillet and vodka in a shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously, strain into the prepared glass, and serve.

Hannibal premieres tonight at 10 p.m. EST on NBC.
