8 places in Calgary serving Thanksgiving dinner

Sep 22 2018, 5:55 am

The leaves are starting to fall and the temperatures are starting to drop. It’s a sure sign of Autumn and with that a Thanksgiving dinner is sure to follow.

The celebratory meal is a perfect balance of sweet and savoury. The traditional turkey blends juicy and tender flavours with a tart cranberry sauce, and to top it all off, carbs, carbs, and more carbs.

While we love eating all of these things, we definitely don’t love the time, preparation, or the clean-up and dishes needed for such a meal.
If you’re feeling the same way about the upcoming holidays, why not forego the chores and leave the cooking to the pros?
Here are eight restaurants in Calgary serving up a mean Thanksgiving dinner this holiday season.

Embarcadero Wine and Oyster Bar

The Embarcadero will be offering a three-course dinner menu on Sunday, October 7 and Monday, October 8.

Guests will have their choice of a butternut squash soup or mixed greens with roasted beets, followed by a roasted Winter’s free-range turkey with traditional sides, and either pumpkin pie or apple rum raisin bread pudding to finish the meal.

The experience will cost $32 per person for all three courses or $24 for the turkey and sides only.
