Agricola is serving a prix fixe Thanksgiving dinner that sounds scrumptious, and will surely start a new tradition in our area. Book early ($65 adults/$35 children), as I predict a lot of families will want to enjoy downtown Princeton on this holiday.
Tre Piani has a full slate of holiday events (including a la carte TG dinner), plus their new Dine and Ride program with A-1 Limo makes transportation a snap. Remember they have that great upstairs room for private events, too.
Brothers Moon will prepare everything but the turkey for you at Thanksgiving. They’ll even make the gravy, and, in addition to seasonal pies (including this year’s must-have chocolate pecan), they offer a pumpkin roll and pumpkin and vanilla cheesecakes. Their New Year’s Eve prix fixe menu sounds wonderful, too.
Elements offers tasting menus for Christmas Eve and New Years Eve, and of course they are one of our area’s top spots for private events in their upstairs dining room, and smaller groups at the Chef’s Table. Meanwhile, their third annual Fall Collaborative Feast, benefitting the D&R Greenway, is on November 21.
And, as I love to remind you, don’t miss out on the excellent baked goods (pie! fruitcake!) at the Whole Earth Center, where you will also find the best in organic gourmet ingredients. Cheeses from Italy and down the road, cream and butter, locally raised/made sausage, and all sorts of side dishes you can order from the deli (by Nov. 22). You can taste some of those side dishes at the store on November 14, by the way.
