A few people would like to go out to a restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner. But, they are concerned with meeting there with other family members that the young boys and girls from the family will mingle. So, they asked if there are any restaurants that have either separate seating. Even better, would be a place that has separate dinner hours for men and women.

I'm unaware of any such place in the New York City area, or anywhere, for that matter. Does anyone know of any such place?

Please don't ask why these people want the separate seating. I may think this is unnecessary, but it's not my place to convince them, otherwise.

Please assist with tagging. I'm unsure what's best for this question.

    Why not just split the men and women to different tables? – ezra Nov 14 '17 at 15:55

    @ezra I don't think that would suffice. These people have pretty girls - on par with the beauty of our imahot, including Leah :-) At least their parents believe this. So, they really don't want men staring at them. I somewhat understand their predicament. – DanF Nov 14 '17 at 17:30
  • OK, whatever the status of the beauty of their girls, there will always be someone who finds them attractive. :) Anyways, we're not here to discuss their parenting strategies. Hey, let them know about these they might be interested in purchasing some for their daughters. :P – ezra Nov 14 '17 at 18:16

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because I got my facts wrong, as I later discovered. The scenario is irrelevant. – DanF Nov 15 '17 at 14:40

    So because the scenario is incorrect, therefore this question has to be closed down? Is it a bad question because you don’t need to know the answer? I also don’t see anything off-topic about it. My vote is too broad, not off-topic. – DonielF Nov 15 '17 at 15:45

Greens restaurant in Williamsburg has a separate seating area for the men and woman.

  • Thanks. I should have specified fleishig in my question, I guess. But, at least they may have one option to work with. Otherwise, I sense that they should order from Meal Mart or something, and have separate meals in their home for the men and women. Paper ware and plastics are wonderful inventions, sometimes. – DanF Nov 14 '17 at 17:41
  • @DanF - Ya know, why don't they just eat at home if they're so concerned about this? You can have your cake and eat it too. – ezra Nov 14 '17 at 18:10
  • @ezra Maybe, if I had the time, energy and patience, I would cook dinner for them and get it to them, somehow. Admittedly, I can't help looking at the girls, myself, so I do understand their concern. I try to avoid going to their home. – DanF Nov 14 '17 at 21:09
  • @DanF - Is there some reason why the Baalabusta can't cook for the family? I don't really know what to say. There are plenty of pleasant looking girls out there, and I can't decide whether they are concerned with perverts looking at the girls or they are concerned at causing others to sin. Either way, I think they're going over the top. – ezra Nov 14 '17 at 21:14
  • @ezra My guess is that the mom just doesn't want to bother making a Thanksgiving meal, (I can't blame her), and, besides, it seems that her main concern is not having young boys around her girls. Her home most likely can't accomodate the separate seating. She may have to forego this entire idea, I think. Or, just make Thanksgiving during Shabbat kiddush in shul. – DanF Nov 15 '17 at 2:48
