Thanksgiving is a holiday that brings fond memories surrounding the good, the bad (and sometimes) the ugly meals. When the turkey gets burnt, family members can't make it, or it just becomes too much work, going out to eat on Thanksgiving has become a very appetizing option; and it's an option that everyone at the table can be thankful for. This Thanksgiving, Tuthill House will be serving a traditional Prix Fixe Thanksgiving menu in addition to their dinner menu comprised by expert chef, Jeremy Berlin. So, if your plans just aren't shaping up, skip the dirty dishes and try something new for the holidays; we've got a few appealing reasons why you should eat out this year.
If there isn't always something for everyone. Did Uncle Rob bring another new friend to Thanksgiving this year? Don't worry, they're probably just gluten-free, vegetarian and lactose intolerant. Thanks for the warning, Uncle Rob. In today's day and age, dietary restrictions and finicky preferences are prevalent. Tuthill House is prepared for this sort of thing with a wide variety of options on their seasonal menu and traditional options for guests looking forward to a conventional Thanksgiving meal. In fact, every dish at Tuthill House is thoughtfully prepared and as Chef Jeremy Berlin explains, the dedication and detail put into each dish begins when "the ingredients are purchased, then prepared, all the way to the plating and final presentation."
If the host never gets to sit down. Everyone is seated at the table, but the host is still on the move, making sure preparations are perfect. This person either really loves all of the hard work that goes into preparing Thanksgiving, or they do an excellent job at pretending to. Either way, they're missing out on their company. Here's a thought; treat them to a labor-free meal this year. As Chef Jeremy Berlin suggests, "I think it’s nice for people to go out and enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner, without having to struggle with the preparation or clean-up at home... plus, the property itself is gorgeous and lends itself to spending an afternoon here." And who doesn't want to be served a meal while they sip on an alcoholic beverage and reminisce disasters of Thanksgiving past? Hello, Thanksgiving future, pleased to make your acquaintance.
If a last-minute dash to the grocery store isn't really your thing. Our objective of making it to the grocery store ahead of schedule comes with good intentions, but it usually doesn't work out that way. Sometimes there are items we forget to purchase. Sometimes we forget to purchase the whole list. This can lead to a mad dash in the grocery store that hosts and guests alike fall victim to. Don't be a victim. Be a hero. Make reservations at your local restaurant and save yourself the stress, the planning and last-minute shopping.
If creatively repurposing turkey isn't for you. So the people who promised to take leftovers home have hopped off the gravy train after a long Thanksgiving lineup. Don't worry, you can make lots of things with turkey(!) like turkey lasagna, turkey pot pie, turkey a la mode - this list goes on for days, pun intended. OR you can take home modest leftovers from a satisfying, delicious meal at your local restaurant. Chef Jeremy Berlin thinks eating out for Thanksgiving is a fantastic option, and further explains "the style of food that we’re offering is unique to the area that people will really enjoy" and we agree. So whether you're a host, a guest, or just don't have plans for Thursday, we've got just the place in mind.
Tuthill House will be open from 12 pm - 4 pm for on Thanksgiving day. To make reservations for your Thanksgiving dinner - call the restaurant at 845.255.4151.
If you can't make it out to Tuthill House for this Thanksgiving, the restaurant has big plans for the future. Berlin plans to incorporate a three-course Prix Fixe menu throughout the week that offers an approachable, affordable and straightforward option for locals. They are even working with Sunflower Art Studios for upcoming 'sip and paint' events. To learn more about Tuthill House and what they offer, visit their website at tuthillhouse.com
