Does your inner Martha need a bit of a break from the kitchen this holiday long weekend? Looking for a place to grab some Thanksgiving grub? We’ve scoured the city and sourced a few choice cuts (er, picks) worth noting.
Yew at the Four Seasons Hotel is offering up a delectably prepped three-course menu for Sunday night dinner. Pricing starts at about $40 (plus tip and tax) with optional wine pairings. You get to choose from seasonal apple and fennel salad or roasted parsnip soup and can opt for turkey with all the fixings – or arctic char. Who can say no to freshly baked pumpkin pie? We doubt you’ll be able to when you check out the Nutella ice cream it comes with.
Bacchus is another hotel hot spot for turkey feasting and you’ll find it tucked within the ever-swanking, cozy and chic setting provided by the Wedgewood Hotel. Again, multiple courses await this $55 per head dinner. Free-run turkey is served alongside apple and chestnut stuffing, cranberry sauce and whipped potatoes. Post-dinner, grab a seat in their lounge while you take in live music and enjoy an overall relaxed vibe.
Also on our list, Gramercy Grill is hosting a Thanksgiving feast over on the west side of the city. Opt for dinner on either Sunday or Monday (or both if you’re up for it!) and choose from three different appetizers (butternut squash with cinnamon soup has our attention), three different mains (roasted turkey, honey ham or stuffed sole), and selection of dessert that happens to include pecan pie. Feeling lazy during the AM? Gramercy has you covered: they’ve got brunch both days, too! Price is $25 per person.
Celebrate Thanksgiving on Sunday, October 7th Irish-style at Gastown’s Irish Heather. They’re offering a traditional turkey feast complete with a deluxe menu crafted by Executive Chef Paul Haldane at a fantastically affordable price of $18 (book ahead to secure your spot, though). Enjoy roast turkey with all the fixings, maple glazed sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts all perfectly paired with Kronenbourg Blanc beer.
Lastly, if you’ve got guests in from out of town and you’re looking to impress, we suggest checking out the scenic Season’s in the Park for a feast with a view that’ll wow them. Enjoy a great selection of Thanksgiving eats on offer as part of their three-course menu (with wine pairings suggested) and save some space for the unique pumpkin crème brulee finale. Walk it off after dinner with a meander through a bit of the gardens. Dinner is served October 7th and 8th at a cost of $32 per person.
