Brunch in Hell's Kitchen

If you're up for something "different" than the typical brunch fare, try Bali Nusa Indah around lunch/brunch time and get their Nasi Rames for meat eaters or vegetarians. Everyone at the table can sample from a long list of offerings, so there's bound to be something for everyone! (Besides, their jasmine rice is a pretty great filler for super picky people--but I hope the in laws are more adventurous)

Ideas, Please - for Wednesday Dinner Before Thanksgiving

Breakfast for dinner? Things like scrambled eggs, thick cinnamon toast or pancakes are easy to bulk up for a bunch of people. Get a fruit platter if you don't feel like washing and prepping fruit. If your family or guests insist on meat, shingle some bacon on a sheet pan or two and pop it in the oven at 350-375 F. For Thanksgiving "breakfast" just snack on nuts, crackers, raw veggie sticks, etc. Keep that belly free for the feast!
