4683 Columbia Pike, Thompson’s Station

Homestead Manor will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.Executive Chef Carlos Garcia says the special menu will include Southern dishes traditionally served on Thanksgiving, with Italian touches incorporated throughout.

Guests will begin their Thanksgiving dinner with a choice between a savory butternut squash and apple bisque born of fall flavors, or a pear and parsnip salad highlighted by roasted pears, parsnips and cambozola cheese.

Entree choices include classic turkey prepared two ways – a roasted breast or a leg stuffed with focaccia filling – and herb-roasted lamb. Side dishes will be aplenty, and range from roasted root vegetables selected from the Homestead farm to whipped potatoes with rosemary and gorgonzola, focaccia stuffing, sweet potato pecan casserole, haricot verts green beans, and freshly made cranberry and orange sauce.

The capstone of the dining experience will be diners’ choice of pecan pie – a Marshall family favorite – or Homestead’s classic pumpkin bread pudding.

The cost is $40 per person and $15 for children 12 and under, and includes soup or salad, an entree, three sides, dessert and a non-alcoholic beverage. Make a reservation here!
