Sticking around NYC for this Thanksgiving, but don’t feel like cooking? Fear not, Ditch Plains UWS is serving up our family-style Thanksgiving menu and we still have some open reservations available! The Turkey Day menu includes beloved classics like brined whole turkey, caramelized shallot mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, and also some traditional sides with a Ditch Plains twist such as corn fritters with maple butter.
If you’re around but already have Thanksgiving Day plans, why not stop by Landmarc in the Time Warner Center or Ditch Plains UWS the night before to catch a glimpse of the balloons being prepared for the parade?!
As if you needed another reason to come out, we’ll be donating $5 from every check on Thanksgiving day to City Harvest to help their post-Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts.
Contact us today to make your T-Day reservation!
If you’re looking for some last minute plans this weekend, come visit us at The Brooklyn Local at Pier 1 in Brooklyn Bridge Park this Saturday.

Welcome to Best of Benchmarc! We’ll be featuring the best of our Benchmarc Events vendor partners, favorite recipes, fantastic clients and unique event venues! The events world is full of great people, places and food & drink and we want to share the best of what we see.
Our first posting is about one of our favorite clients AND favorite charities, City Harvest. City Harvest has been serving NYC for over 25 years now and is the world’s first food rescue organization, dedicated to feeding the city’s hungry men, women, and children. Chef Marc Murphy is a board member and a member of City Harvest’s Food Council.
Benchmarc Events had the privilege of catering City Harvest’s holiday party this year at their new food distribution and warehouse center in Long Island City. City Harvest drivers, warehouse employees, office employees and more were in attendance and shared in the festivities by enjoying ditch dogs, orechiette alla norcina, the Holiday Harvest cocktail and more. Thanks for letting us be a part of such a great event, City Harvest!
