Thanksgiving 2011 at Vacherie Restaurant

Come celebrate Thanksgiving at Vacherie, the new restaurant, bar, and café now open in the Hotel St Marie at 827 Toulouse Street in the French Quarter.

Vacherie’s dining room will offer à la carte breakfast from 7am-11am and a four-course prix fixe Thanksgiving Dinner from 12noon-4pm. Vacherie Bar will serve libations all day, and a casual menu of “Leftovers in the Bar” from 4pm-9pm.

The four-course Thanksgiving Dinner starts with seafood gumbo or butternut squash bisque, followed by salad and a choice of entrees: traditional roasted turkey, rabbit cassoulet, broiled redfish, or medallions of beef tenderloin. The finale is a choice from Vacherie’s array of luscious home-made desserts. The prix fixe price range is $37-$45, for 4 courses (beverages, tax, and gratuity not incuded). You’ll find a complete list of Vacherie’s Thanksgiving Dinner menu options on this PDF.

“Leftovers in the Bar” is a creative play on traditional Thanksgiving flavors, in tasty Small Plate dishes such as open-face “Hot Brown” sandwiches, yeast roll sliders with turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce, cheddar cheese biscuits with ham, and yam chips with hot vinegar. Prices for Vacherie Bar’s Small Plates range from $4-$16. Vacherie Bar offers a full selection of spirits, local beers, and interesting wines.

Catering and private party rooms are available.
