This Thanksgiving, Chef Alon Shaya welcomes guests to Miss River with signature dishes perfect for sharing across the table. A playful interpretation of the traditional Thanksgiving feast, the menu features a whole buttermilk-fried chicken that is brined for 16 hours, then, battered, breaded and deep fried, resulting in a perfectly golden, crunchy exterior and tender, juicy interior.  The succulent fried chicken can be accompanied by crowd-pleasing Thanksgiving sides.
