A Grand Thanksgiving; from New York traditions, to New Traditions in York

From New York traditions, to new traditions in York, The Grand Hotel will be hosting its very own Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, 22 November.

Dating back to the 17th century, when new pilgrims prepared an autumn harvest feast in America, Thanksgiving has since become one of the most popular American holidays.

York’s most luxurious address, The Grand, is bringing the tradition a little closer to home with a cultural and architectural twist of Edwardian heritage. Guests will have the opportunity to indulge in a tantalizingly tasty Thanksgiving dinner, devoid of the inevitable stress of having to host or tidy up the kitchen after a swarm of hungry guests.

Thanksgiving is the perfect excuse to gather friends and family and spend some invaluable time with your loved ones celebrating in a palace of atmospheric grandeur and only the finest of food and drink. The opulent celebration in the Grand Boardroom will be a convivial evening of merriment and magnificent feasting for many. Perhaps you’re looking for a more intimate event, for which The Grand offers exclusive private dining rooms that are available for hire.

Like any fine celebration, the evening will kick off with a Champagne reception on arrival before guests are led to their tables for dinner to commence at 8pm. The team of talented chefs are all set to prepare the holiday-inspired menu of the season with a delectable three-course meal showcasing brined maple turkey, hand-carved at your table for you and your guests, with all the trimmings. This will be followed by a divine home-made pecan pie to please the palate and some petit fours over coffee to finish.

If you’re not in any hurry to rush off, why not turn the evening into a mini-break and sleep off your dinner in one of the hotel’s swish bedrooms, exuding panache and individualised charm? Each adorned with marble-topped baths and design-led interiors, the rooms provide the perfect place to wind down and relax, overlooking historic York.

The Thanksgiving dinner costs just £59.00pp and includes a complimentary glass of Champagne on arrival, a three-course meal and coffee with petit fours.
