Thanksgiving Out in Asheville

November 19, 2009

Did you recently win the lottery? Going through kitchen remodel? Broke both your arms? Then you are a likely candidate to eat your Thanksgiving Dinner at one of Asheville’s fine gourmet establishments.

The Grove Park Inn‘s Grand Ballroom is serving a “lavish grand buffet” as well as presenting live music and other festive activities, such as the famous gingerbread houses and Macy’s parade on all the TVs.

The Red Stag Grill in Biltmore Village’s Grand Bohemian Hotel is hosting a prix fixe Thanksgiving dinner with the option of Provencal turkey, leg of lamb or Applewood smoked ham, plus 3 traditional sides, cranberry compote, gravy, a roll, and dessert for $45.

For a more affordable option, you may want to try the Flying Frog Cafe, who will be serving up a 3-course traditional Thanksgiving prix fixe menu of soup, turkey breast/trout/pork loin/veggie option, plus all the trimmings and dessert for a mere $35.

Or, you could try another Asheville chestnut, the Black Forest Restaurant in Arden, who’s putting on a special Thanksgiving menu. Their entrees run $15-$25, and they’ll offer such options as roast turkey, ham, a german sampler, schnitzels, and much more, with a Thanksgiving-y twist, according to the friendly hostess.

Want to eat at home but don’t want to worry about cooking? Consider Picnic’s, where you can order and pick up turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, another veggie side, and a roll all for $13.99. But you have to pick it up the Wednesday before the big day. You know, the one day in history when we kindly broke bread with and sweetly refrained from scalping and pillaging an entire native population.

I did most of the research for you. Here’s what’s closed for Turkey Day, in case you were thinking of trying them: The Market Place, Cucina 24, Fig, Table, Savoy, Rezaz, The Noodle Shop, Limones, and basically all the other places too.
