Palm Beach Post: Restaurants to go all-out for Thanksgiving
Suckling pig, vegetarian pot pie, pasta with wild-boar ragu.
Make way for them if you plan on dining out for Thanksgiving in Palm Beach.
It’s not that Nov. 28 won’t celebrate the holiday’s emblematic bird: The island’s restaurants will feature lots of turkey and trimmings with their Thanksgiving buffets and specials, often supplemented by their regular menus.
After all, most chefs in town have been perfecting turkey roasting for years.
But some restaurants are preparing and serving turkey in unconventional ways. And others are offering additional main-course options that bypass safe-sounding fish and beef dishes for intriguing alternatives — right down to vegetarian fare, say, or revamped Italian favorites…
Look for turkey rollatini — a stuffed and rolled breast — in Royal Poinciana Plaza at Sant Ambroeus, where a three-course Thanksgiving affair ($85 a person) combines an appetizer-and-dessert buffet with a la carte entrée selections.
Other main-course selections at Sant Ambroeus range from pappardelle with wild-boar ragu, to a vegetarian selection: potato gnocchi with wild mushrooms, goat cheese and truffle sauce.
