As anyone who’s ever been far from home can attest to, spending a holiday alone sucks. There’s not really a more succinct way to put it; not having anyone to share a special day with is just depressing and alienating and very very lonely.
“When I first moved here, I was totally alone,” said Bonnie Saran, founder and president of Mount Kisco staples Little Drunken Chef, Little Kabab Station, Little Crepe Street, Little Spice Bazaar, and Pleasantville’s Little Mumbai Market. “I understand how the holidays can be a very depressing time for some, even while it’s happy for others.”
Whether it’s an issue of distance or funds, family or anything else, all of the ‘Littles’ will open their doors on Thanksgiving Day to welcome anyone and everyone to a complimentary buffet and joyful community atmosphere.
Saran is especially grateful to all her employees and staff for volunteering their time to make the event happen. “We have the whole year to function as a business but its these special days that we all need to be thankful for whatever we have, and share it with those who do not have as much.”
The buffet will include holiday classics such as turkey and mashed potatoes, but also baked goodies, Indian specialty dishes, and a few select menu items to bring each of the individual restaurant’s menus and flair to the occasion. The buffet is, again, entirely free and there are no qualifications to attend.
“All I ask is that people simply spread the word,” Saran said, “so that anyone who might need our company and food on Thanksgiving would hear about it.”
