Experience Thanksgiving with Sedona’s best restaurants

Thanksgiving is the time to gather your loved ones and celebrate together with amazing food. Sedona is hot though. Hot enough that you might not feel like getting stuck in the heat of a kitchen all day. Maybe cooking isn’t your idea of spending the best time with your family. Maybe you just burnt the bird. Whatever the reason, if you’re looking to venture out for a delicious Thanksgiving meal we’ve got some suggestions.

The Hudson Invites You for a Fireside Feast

For a casual evening you can’t go wrong with a family friendly place like the Hudson. Their menu has been selected especially for the holiday. From 12 noon to 8 pm the whole family (including your fur babies) can rest easy as your dinner is prepared. Of course there’s the classic roasted turkey with gravy as an option. Other meals include mouth watering New Zealand rack of lamb with port wine mint sauce, a savory 8 oz grilled prime beef filet, or their flavorful pan seared salmon with cranberry herb butter. Enjoy all this with their patio seating for a fireside fun night out.

Healthy Selections at Heartline Cafe

The Heartline Cafe is a restaurant that packs tons of great taste into one perfect place. Enjoy their magical garden seating this holiday for a fantastic setting anytime between 5 pm to 9 pm. For that at-home flavor try the glazed turkey with gravy. It comes served with sweet potatoes and pecans, apple stuffing and steamed autumn veggies. For the vegetarian of the group we recommend the vegetable linguini with sweet garlic and asparagus. All meals here come available with wine parings, and their desserts are a special treat as well!

We all love how much Italian food makes us smile and fills us up. At Dahl and DiLuca you will find every bite comes with additional holiday cheer. Fine dining is the first word to describe this lovely atmosphere and menu. The main course for this special evening is an all natural wood-roasted turkey breast with fresh herb stuffing.

Check out some other listings if you’re interested in vacationing in Sedona for this holiday season. Aside from its menu Cress on Oak Creek is well known for its serene views of gentle Oak Creek.
