This year, skip the Thanksgiving entertaining at home and leave the cooking to us. Our award-winning chefs are well-versed in holiday feasts.
Sidle up alongside a life-size Damien Hirst golden unicorn at Pao by Paul Qui or on the restaurant’s ocean view terrace for an unmatched culinary celebration. The multicourse Thanksgiving menu begins with a choice of caramelized miso soup with a unique twist of foie gras “tofu” and black truffle, or opt for the grilled winter squash roasted in olive butter and Yuzu Kosho, and topped with caramelized seeds and 24-month-aged parmesan. Satiate your holiday appetite with a bounty of fried turkey, turkey leg confit, turkey wings, crispy brussels sprouts, grilled corn pudding, Japanese sweet potato puree, truffle adobo and housemade cranberry jam. And don’t forget to leave room for a sweet finish.
If you can’t help but follow your nose to the smoky scent of roasting meats on a woodfired grill, gather your loved ones at Los Fuegos for a decadent asado buffet designed by Argentine grillmaster Francis Mallmann. Fresh from the garden, land or sea, there’s something for every palate. Hearty Thanksgiving
fare includes a whole turkey roasted to perfection with gravy, charred lemon and an array of delicious sides. Pile your plate with corn pudding, green beans with bacon, smoked cranberry sauce, chorizo and fennel stuffing, sweet potatoes, roasted pumpkin and caramelized brussels sprouts. If you want to mash up your meal with something less traditional, visit the seafood station for grilled octopus and salt-crusted wild salmon, or indulge in a juicy slow-cooked ribeye slathered in chimichurri sauce or a plate of authentic oven-baked empanadas. A salad table offers sweet to savory fare from smoked eggplant to pink grapefruit and avocado specialties. Then there’s the dessert selection with ten pastry options that will send you straight to culinary bliss with bourbon pecan pie, maple-pear tiramisu and more.
Whatever your style, Faena has all the fixings for a very happy Thanksgiving.
