Prefer to lay by the pool rather than slave over a hot stove? In Los Angeles, you can have your Thanksgiving catered by The Beverly Hill Hotel's Polo Lounge.
This Thanksgiving, the iconic pink retreat is offering their traditional "Holiday-To-Go," a complete elegant meal prepared by the master chefs in the Polo Lounge for enjoyment at home. The dinner serves from 6-8 people and includes a 20-pound roasted free range organic turkey with all the trimmings which include giblet sage gravy; poached pear, red endive and watercress salad with Poire William vinaigrette; chestnut, pine nut and brioche bread stuffing; candied yams; whipped Yukon Gold potato puree; buttered baby carrots and fine green beans; glazed Brussels sprouts with toasted almonds; wild flower honey and ginger infused cranberry sauce; classic pumpkin pie with Chantilly cream and rolls and butter. The whole package costs $440 and needs to be ordered no less than 24 hours in advance. It can be picked up or get it delivered within five miles of the hotel for $75.
While you are stopping by the hotel to pick up dinner you might want to sample some of The Polo Lounge's season cocktails including the Fig Sidecar, made with fresh fig-infused Remi Martin Cognac or the seasonal eggnogs at Bar Nineteen12 which include pumpkin, raspberry, hazelnut, cappuccino, banana and mint chocolate flavors.
