The holidays are just around the corner, and when it comes to Thanksgiving, I have found that there are many ways to celebrate it. Over the years we have enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinners in different ways, from traveling to be with family that are far away, spending the time at a friends, cooking at home, donating our time to serve the meal to those who need it most, and by making it a date by heading out to eat at a restaurant that is serving dinner that night. Of those, I can not pick a favorite because with all of those choices, I feel that we get that sense of togetherness and find that we are thankful for the time we have together. So when it comes to figuring out how to celebrate or even where to go with friends and family the days after the big feast, I like knowing that when we head to places like Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, that they have the menus ready to suit the occasion!
See this year, when it comes to finding a restaurant that will be open on Thanksgiving Day, you can feel at ease knowing that Fleming's Steakhouse will be open and ready to serve you a feast to remember! In fact when it comes to serving you the meal that will make this Thanksgiving Dinner one to remember, Fleming's will be open on Thanksgiving for the first time ever and will be ready to greet guests with an amazing four course menu. This menu will include those traditional favorites like a mixed herb roasted turkey breast with savory gravy. And also when you add Fleming's to your calendar this Thanksgiving, on Thanksgiving weekend (Friday-Saturday), Fleming’s offer all wine on the Fleming’s 100 wine list at $10 per glass.
Then when it comes what to do with all of those leftovers, with something that you and your family are sure to enjoy, Executive Chef Russell Skall has come up with some great recipes including the one below.
