Old Monk offering a free meal this Thanksgiving

Via the EVG inbox...

This Thanksgiving, Avenue B’s contemporary Indian restaurant Old Monk will serve a complimentary Thanksgiving buffet to all patrons that visit.

To thank the neighborhood that has embraced the restaurant since it opened this past summer, as well as help those in need, Chef/Co-owner Navjot Arora has crafted Indian-inspired Thanksgiving dishes including Turkey Meatballs in a curry sauce, Tandoori Chicken Wings, Carrot & Green Bean Poriyal with coconut, Cumin Potatoes, House-Baked Naan Bread, Cranberry chutney with mango yogurt and more.

He hopes to feed more than 300 New York City residents who may not have an opportunity to celebrate the holiday with a warm meal.

WHEN: Thanksgiving, Thursday Nov. 23 from noon-3 p.m.

WHERE: 175 Avenue B at 11th Street

A rep for Old Monk told me that "Anyone who walks through the door will be welcomed. They just need to show up during the [noon-to-3 p.m.] time frame."
