Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort
Enjoy a work-free meal at home (something to truly be thankful for) with the farm-to-table Thanksgiving feast at Sheraton Wild Horse Pass, which is available to pick up between noon and 4 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. A feast for the family (serves 6 to 8) is $200 plus tax and includes a slow-roasted 18-pound turkey, iitoi onion buttermilk mashed potatoes, creamed corn, desert sage cornbread stuffing, green beans with toasted pine nuts, cranberry and blood orange relish, mesquite sweet yams with agave and cinnamon, artisan dinner rolls with garlic chive butter, and spiced apple, pumpkin, or pecan pie. Call 602-385-5726 to place an order by Friday, November 16.
For those who prefer to dine at the resort, Ko'Sin restaurant has a four-course meal available for lunch (11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and dinner (3 to 8 p.m.). The meal -- priced at $60 for adults, $55 for seniors, and $25 for children 12 and under -- includes Dungeness crab salad, a duet of filet and Serrano ham wrapped prawns with golden beet and mascarpone risotto, pan-seared elk tenderloin with saffron potato puree, and more. There will also be special options for children, including cheeseburger sliders and mac n' cheese. And for dessert? Pumpkin pie with cranberry Grand Marnier sauce or chocolate bacon pecan pie with maple bourbon gastrique.
With four restaurants each offering original menus, Pointe Hilton Resorts has a Thanksgiving dinner to suit everyone's tastes. The Thanksgiving feast will be served at Tapatio Cliffs Resort alongside North Mountain starting at noon.
