Nothing beats home cooking for Thanksgiving, but if you want a fun alternative, the top restaurants in Las Vegas know how to turn the holiday into an exciting night on the town. Check out the best options for a Thanksgiving meal in Sin City.
Costa di Mare - Wynn Las Vegas
In addition to the regular menu, guests can enjoy a Chef’s Holiday Tasting menu for $110 per person. It includes chestnut soup with Venetian crab, roasted acorn squash with farro, sage tagliatelle with amaretto pumpkin sauce and in the main event… a rosemary and fennel organic turkey with vanilla yams and pancetta Brussels sprouts. Dinner is served from 5:30 to 10 p.m.
Mon Ami Gabi - Paris Las Vegas
For a little French atmosphere on Thanksgiving, you’ve come to the right restaurant. A holiday meal will be served from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., featuring an herb roasted turkey with garlic and sage stuffing, caramelized yams, vanilla cranberry relish, potato puree and more. Begin the meal with pumpkin soup and wrap it up with either pumpkin bread pudding or a pecan and chocolate tart for dessert.
Table 10 - The Palazzo
Pick and choose among a number of Thanksgiving dishes to celebrate the holiday. They include a roasted parsnip bisque, chopped harvest salad with pumpkin seeds and a roasted organic turkey dinner with cornbread dressing, green bean casserole, roasted red potatoes and cranberry sauce. A pumpkin pie is served for dessert with a salted caramel sauce.
Phoenix - Lucky Dragon
You’ve heard of Peking Duck. Well, how about Peking Turkey? It comes served as part of a Chinese-style Thanksgiving brunch from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Choose either a three or four-course meal and mix in unexpected fare like braised beef in a pumpkin bowl or baked ham and pineapple with mashed potatoes. We recommend the egg custard tart for dessert.
Spago - Forum Shops at Caesars
This classic spot by Wolfgang Puck has a three-course meal for the holiday. Begin with a choice of butternut squash and apple soup or a wild mushroom salad. Continue with the main course, featuring herb-brined free-range turkey with cherry walnut stuffing, potato puree, spiced sweet potatoes and green beans before wrapping things up with a choice of Dutch apple pie or sweet potato pie (with “house-made” Cool Whip!)
