Time to talk turkey

If you’re planning to spend Thanksgiving in Vegas, you’re going to need turkey. That is, mushroom stuffed braised thigh of turkey.

Las Vegas offers visitors a variety of Thanksgiving meals from traditional to extraordinary.

At Charlie Palmer Steak, try the five-course menu with turkey served two ways, sweet potato gratin and foie gras dumplings. If you’re a pumpkin pie fan, you’re in luck at Palmer’s table, served with ice cream drizzled with butterscotch sauce and an eggnog with brandy, you won’t be leaving hungry.

Herb roasted turkey or honey and molasses glazed ham? Oh the choices! Restaurant DJT offers a scrumptious Thanksgiving brunch. The quiet, elegant setting will be a great way to enjoy spending time with friends and family.

Though Strip House is known for their steaks, they are certainly serving up a tasty turkey this Thanksgiving—filled with roasted chestnut and apple stuffing and served with squash puree, haricot vert, and a balsamic-cranberry conserve.

If you’re looking for cranberry vodka instead of cranberry sauce, you might want to dine at the Palms, where a nightclub is only steps away. N9NE Steakhouse offers guests a special multi-course Thanksgiving menu that highlights Dover sole, Florida stone crab, turkey and sausage cornbread stuffing.

For a Thanksgiving fiesta, head to Dos Caminos where dinner items include turkey carnitas, piloncillo-glazed sweet potatoes and caldo gallego, a Spanish style white bean stew.

Wolfgang Puck’s take on Thanksgiving is all about pumpkin. A tender, house-made pumpkin ravioli served with brown butter and black truffles, roasted pumpkin soup and pumpkin bread pudding will all be served at Trattoria del Lupo on Thanksgiving Day.

After all that holiday dining, perhaps you need a nightcap. Though you’re full, you have to try some of Bouchon’s house-made desserts. Apple pie with streusel topping or bourbon pecan torte are just two of the mouth-watering desserts offered at the restaurant. You can have a slice at the French Brasserie-style restaurant, but individual pies and whole pies (serves 6 – 8 people) are available to take home.

From eggnog to apple pie, these are a few of the top picks for a Thanksgiving meal in Las Vegas. Have a safe and happy holiday!
