Holiday American

Prairie Grass Cafe's (601 Skokie Blvd., Northbrook,) Thanksgiving Dinner will once again be a way to celebrate with family and friends on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22.

Served from  2:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., the annual feast from co-chef/owners Sarah Stegner and George Bumbaris will feature favorite holiday dishes. The price for this feast is $59 per person for adults and $20 for children ages 3-10 years. Early reservations are strongly recommended.

Begin the Thanksgiving celebration with a choice of appetizer: warm Butternut Squash Soup or Organic Mixed Green Salad with Pumpkin Seeds, Parmesan, and Pomegranate and Balsamic Dressing. Highlighting seasonal produce, the salad offers a taste of fall’s bounty.

Then, enjoy Prairie Grass Cafe’s classic Oven Roasted Turkey served with Mashed Potatoes and Homemade Gravy. The Apple Chestnut Stuffing is a blend of savory and sweet tastes, while the creamy Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash topped with homemade marshmallow is for those with a sweet tooth. Other sides include Fresh Vegetables and Cranberry Sauce.  

End Thanksgiving festivities on a sweet note with a choice of dessert: Mom’s Pumpkin Pie, Pecan Pie or the decadent Double Chocolate Cake. Made in-house and inspired by a family recipe from Chef Sarah Stegner’s mother.
