Rye Deli releases a creative new holiday menu

For the first time since 1888 Hanukkah and Thanksgiving will fall on the same day. It's a mathematical anomaly, yes, but more importantly, it's a perfect excuse to celebrate the all-new food-centered super holiday that will heretofore be known as Thanksgivukkah.
Rye Deli's Thanksgivukkah menu features delightful bourbon, brown sugar, and pecan noodle kugel; spinach and sweet potato latkes with cranberry relish; pumpkin pie sufganiyot (a.k.a. donuts) with cranberry icing; and deconstructed green bean casserole that consists of battered and deep-fried green beans with mushroom gravy for dipping (pictured below). The crowning glory of the whole menu is a $17 super stack of turkey, gravy, challah stuffing, cranberry relish, and spinach all piled on a crispy potato latke, simply called The Thanksgivukkah.

The bar side is getting in on the fun with a handful of seasonally inspired cocktails including a chocolate and brandy concoction called the Melted Gelt and the Chai Rye, made with Rittenhouse whiskey, Tuaca, chai tea, and black walnut bitters.
