With Thanksgiving just a week away, if you haven’t made plans for your holiday dinner yet well, it’s time to get on the stick! On the other hand, if you’re lazy like me or just too busy to rustle up a Thanksgiving dinner at home, you might want to do what I’m doing this year and enjoy your Thanksgiving meal in a nice restaurant – where someone else is doing the cooking and cleaning up all the dirty dishes afterwards.
In Holladay, Tuscany restaurant is offering a traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner with a few Italian splashes thrown in, like lasagna and Tuscan bread pudding. Downtown, at both Grand America and Little America, you can enjoy Thanksgiving brunch. Chef Jeffrey Russell at Grand America is featuring traditional roasted turkey with giblet gravy, rosemary and pepper crusted prime rib, New Zealand lamb, salmon, and lots more. Meanwhile, at Little America Thanksgiving dinner includes fresh snow crab legs, iced shrimp, smoked salmon, stuffed pork loin, an ice cream station, fresh pies, cakes, and pastries, and of course, all the roasted turkey you can get your lips around.
If you’d like to spend Thanksgiving in a beautiful natural rustic setting, I’d head up to Log Haven in Millcreek Canyon where Chef Frank Mendoza will be serving roasted turkey with all the fixings, prime rib, and desserts to die for. And a little further out of town in Midway, Chef Chris Sheehan of The Blue Boar Inn will feature a Thanksgiving dinner of maple glazed turkey, pepita crusted salmon, tarragon rubbed prime rib, and coriander crusted pork loin, along with traditional side dishes and desserts.
Well wherever you wind up on Thanksgiving Day, I hope it’s a happy and healthy one.
