Let’s be real here, can it really be called a “holiday” if you are doing 10x as much work as you would on any normal Thursday? If you plan on kicking back with a glass of wine and really enjoying your Thanksgiving, here is a long list of Valley restaurants catering specifically to the dine-out crowd this upcoming
turkey stuff your face day.
District American Kitchen is hosting a special Thanksgiving Day feast starting at 11:30 am. The three course meal with a la carte menu is just $31 for adults and $15 for kids (+$15 for the wine pairing) and will feature traditional fall flavors like pumpkin soup, roasted turkey with gravy, cornbread and andouille stuffing, marshmellow yams, mashed potatoes and more of your favorite holiday classics done nothing like grandma. Gather the family for a home away from home style meal.
The JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa is majorly gearing up for the out-of-towners as all three of their restaurants will be serving meals fit for kings on Thanksgiving. Blue Sage will have a contemporary American buffet, Tuscany will stray (slightly) from its traditional Italian menu to offer turkey, steak and Scottish salmon as the main dishes and even a special turkey ravioli and the Meritage Steakhouse is offering a pre-fixe menu with dessert options like Pumpkin pie with cinnamon cream. If you’re feeling ambitious, start early and hit up all three to get the full experience. Check out also the Scottsdale Plaza, the Arizona Biltmore and the Hyatt Regency for their many restaurants’ special offerings.
Buca di Beppo is open for Thanksgiving serving up massive portions per usual, only now, you can justify eating one of the “shared plates” yourself you you’re feeling like a champion.
Eddie’s House will also be dishing up a fairly inexpensive Turkey Day Buffet. For just $39.99 for adults and $19.99 for kids, you can round up the extended fam and down spoonfuls of Pumpkin cheesecake.
And, if you are sticking to your traditional guns and cooking for yourself this holiday, you can still do the community some good by stopping in to dine at the Melting Pot starting next week through the end of 2011. They have partnered with the Phoenix Rescue Mission and will donate a portion of the proceeds from their “Classic Combination Four Course Fondue Raiser” in addition to giving away a free chocolate fondue to anyone who donates water, non-perishable food and blankets.
