A Vanguard Thanksgiving

How about having Thanksgiving dinner with your four favorite restaurants all at once?

Vanguard Hospitality has made it happen.

Grille 26, Minervas, Morrie’s Steakhouse and Turks & Caicos Cabana Grille have put together a four-course meal filled with your favorites – and some new dishes especially for the holiday.

Appetizer course
We know you miss the Minervas salad bar. Vanguard does too — and fear not, it will be back better than ever! But in the meantime, you will start your Thanksgiving meal with the famous Minervas bacon cheddar cheese spread.
Plus, we will create an amazing charcuterie board, so you and your household can snack away until the rest of your meal is ready – or all weekend long.

Salad course
A reliable crowd-pleaser, the Vanguard garden salad will come with both ranch and Italian vinaigrette dressing.
Bonus: You’ll be taking Breadico bread home to enjoy with it.

Entree options
Here’s the only challenging thing about the Vanguard Thanksgiving dinner: Choosing your entree.

Like the classics? Go with the smoked turkey breast, served with — making its debut and so amazing — Breadico sausage stuffing.

Prefer beef over poultry? You’ll love the beef Wellington served with bordelaise sauce.

Or maybe your tastes run a bit spicier? Add some Mardi Gras flavor to the table with the turducken, with jambalaya, vegetable etouffee and Cajun cream sauce.

The sides
What’s Thanksgiving dinner without lots of side dishes? There were so many choices, but a star of the Morrie’s Steakhouse menu – jalapeno cream corn – easily rose to the top. It might end up dominating your plate.

Or maybe that will go to the white cheddar boursin mashed potatoes, complete with lobster sauce.

Add some color and flavor with glazed organic carrots, and savor the Parmesan bacon brussels sprouts.

Decadent dessert
There are so many directions to go with Thanksgiving dessert, but Vanguard loves cheesecake and knows you do too. So you’ll take home a our signature cheesecake with not one but two sauces – Grille 26’s famous bananas foster and its strawberry rhubarb.

Yes, it’s a lot. Yes, you’ll have leftovers. But it’s Thanksgiving. And you definitely deserve to skip the cooking and savor the day.
