Don’t Feel Like Cooking This Year? Here’s Where to Grab Thanksgiving Dinner to Go
Some Thanksgiving traditions will change this year, so it’s the perfect time to start a brand-new one. Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City is offering a whole host of festive ways to celebrate this year at its many restaurants. Skip the cooking and get straight to the food with one of the gourmet takeout or dine-in options below.
For those who prefer to gather at home, a new BorgataEATS takeout package comes with all of the fixings and serves eight people. The menu includes a whole turkey with gravy and cranberry sauce. The box is packed with everyone’s favorite sides, too. Dig into sage bread and cornbread stuffings, mashed potatoes, glazed sweet potatoes with marshmallows, sautéed green beans with onions, and macaroni and cheese. To pick up, head to the Borgata Beer Garden entrance on the surface parking lot at your designated time. (Choose one on either Wednesday, November 25, between 12 p.m. and 5 p.m. or Thanksgiving Day, November 26, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.). Just show your ID and confirmation number and an employee will load the order into your trunk. The complete dinner comes with heating instructions so you can get it on the table piping hot.
As always, the Borgata Baking Company will sell its popular holiday desserts to go. Tack them onto your meal order or order a few on their own. Choose from classic 9-inch pumpkin, apple crumb or pecan pies to serve for dessert. An 8-inch New York cheesecake is also available if you rather go the creamy route. Preordering starts now and lasts until Sunday, November 22. Pick-up begins on Thursday, November 24 at 11 a.m. and goes until Thanksgiving Day at 6 p.m.
If you’d prefer to eat in, Borgata’s four fine-dining restaurants will offer special Thanksgiving menus. Parties will need to reserve in advance either online or by phone in order to secure seats. At Old Homestead Steak House, the four-course feast will include updated takes on old favorites. In addition to the traditional turkey, potatoes and pie, expect to sample a Jersey fresh butternut squash soup and an apple, poppy and Calvados stuffing. Iron Chef Michael Symon is putting an Italian spin on the American holiday at his restaurant Angeline by serving roasted turkey breast with fennel gravy, turkey confit stuffing and pumpkin tiramisu and gelato in lieu of pie.
With a maple horseradish glaze, smoked chile gravy and cranberry fig and pinot noir chutney, the turkey at Bobby Flay Steak won’t skimp on flavor. But if turkey isn’t really your thing, Izakaya has you covered. The Japanese-inspired holiday menu from Michael Schulson features a Karaage “hot” fried chicken entrée with fermented cucumber, chili oil and yuzu. Cap off the meal with some ice cream sushi and assorted mochi.
Capacity at each restaurant is currently limited to just 25 percent, so call to book as soon as possible if you’d like to celebrate Thanksgiving the best way of all: with no dirty dishes to wash.
