Thanksgiving Day Dining at Park Grill

Special Holiday Menu with Suggested Wine Pairings

Thursday, November 24
11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.

This year, celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday in the heart of Chicago’s beautiful Millennium Park while dining at Park Grill. Chef Alex Shalev’s special menu, featuring Park Grill favorites as well as traditional Thanksgiving fare, will certainly please your friends and family.

Highlights of the menu include seasonal dishes (Pumpkin Ravioli, BBQ Turkey Leg, Spiced Pumpkin Soup, Slow Roasted Amish Turkey and Sweet Potato Risotto), as well as a number of Park Grill specialties (American Kobe Burger, Grilled Salmon and Back Wrapped Pork Tenderloin). Traditional sides, such as roasted garlic mashed potatoes, house-made apple sauce, green beans, sausage stuffing and double-baked sweet potato may be added, to make this Thanksgiving feel just like home.

Park Grill has also taken the liberty of including suggested wine pairings (and one Bell’s brew for the burger). These varietals, like the Thanksgiving menu, are offered a la carte.

The complete menu is outlined below. Thanksgiving service will be offered Thursday, November 24 from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Please call for reservations (recommended, not required).
