Celebrate Thanksgiving Day in Style

At the Royal Sonesta Hotel, our tables are set for you and your family to experience a New Orleans holiday tradition.  On Thursday November 22nd, the hotel is pleased to present a Thanksgiving Day feast with all of the trimmings.  Executive Chef Peter Page and his talented culinary team have planned an expansive menu that is sure to please everyone.

Your feast begins with a bubbling glass of Champagne or a classic New Orleans cocktail for toasting this special occasion.  If a Bloody Mary is more to your liking, create your own at the Royal Sonesta’s new Bloody Mary Station.

Ease into Thanksgiving Day by customizing your brunch with Omelets or Eggs Benedict prepared to order at our Omelet Station.  Choose from an abundance of fresh seafood, market vegetables and a variety of cheeses to enhance your creation.  Warm up with our seasonal Crab and Acorn Squash Bisque topped with Tarragon Créme Fraiche or get started with the Heirloom Tomato and Burrata Salad drizzled with Olive Oil and Balsamic.  The choices are endless.

Your Thanksgiving feast would be not complete without sampling Chef Page’s Cajun Injected Deep Fried Turkey accompanied with Cranberry Chutney, Giblet Gravy and Oyster Dressing.  If seafood is more to your liking, choose from the Smoked Salmon and Scallop Crepes, Pecan Crusted Paneed Redfish, or the Smoked Peppered Trout.  Sample selections from our Sushi or Caviar Stations or plan to visit the Royal Sonesta’s Seafood Bar which features Freshly Shucked Oysters on the ½ Shell, Spicy Boiled Jumbo Shrimp and Marinated Blue Crab Claws.  With an endless assortment of prepared meats at the Charcuterie Station, you’ll be dining in style.

Children ages 12 and under will enjoy kid-friendly versions of traditional Thanksgiving classics such as Turkey drizzled with Gravy, Royal Mashed Potatoes and fresh Green Beans.  The little ones can even design their own “edible works of art” at the Children’s Express by creating Apple-Pops on a stick with assorted sprinkles and toppings.

Executive Pastry Chef Solandie Exantus has prepared seasonal dessert favorites such as the Milk Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Bread Pudding with Frangelico Cream Sauce, Fig and Hazelnut Tarte Tatin, Blood Orange Cream Brulée with Chocolate Bubbles, and Apple Mille-Feuille with Crystallized Ginger.
