Artango’s Thanksgiving Dinner Will Please the Norbert in Your Life
Artango is making life easier for us by serving food that is going to make all of us happy. Add to that the bonus that we don’t have to cook, or clean up, and we’re all going to split the bill, so it’s actually a very economical way to enjoy each other’s company. On Thanksgiving Day, from 2pm until 10pm, Artango Steakhouse will offer a three-course prix fixe menu for $55 per person ($20 for children aged 6-12).
We have a dear old-friend, let’s call him Norbert, who has proclaimed many times that “Thanksgiving food is totally drab and boring.” He says he doesn’t like the bland turkey, the gloppy gravy, the sour cranberry sauce…and don’t even get him started on the candied yams with marshmallows on top. Every year, he whines that nearly all the food at Thanksgiving is “under-seasoned to the point of invisibility.”
Now, just to be clear, Norbert may be a snob but he’s not a sociopath; he likes being around people, and he likes chatting at a table of good food – he just doesn’t think there’s much good food to be had at a Thanksgiving table.
Artango is making life easier for us by serving food that is going to make all of us – the traditionalists and even hard-to-please Norbert – happy. Add to that the bonus that we don’t have to cook, or clean up, and we’re all going to split the bill, so it’s actually a very economical way to enjoy each other’s company, and perhaps for Norbert, for the first time ever, a way to enjoy a meal on Thanksgiving.
On Thanksgiving Day, from 2pm until 10pm, Artango will offer a three-course prix fixe menu for $55 per person ($20 for children aged 6-12).
Executive Chef Saul Roman’s menu is a nod to traditional Thanksgiving standards (like stuffed turkey breast) but it also features some nontraditional holiday options like ahi tuna ceviche, lobster bisque, grilled salmon and gelato.
Spicing up the usual Thanksgiving entertainments (arguments about politics, about who was supposed to bring the creamed onions, etc.), there will be entertainment. Live from Buenos Aires, the Guillermo Paolisso Trio will be playing a fusion of Latin jazz, Argentine folklore, Brazilian bossa nova and Argentine tango. The music starts at 5pm, and even if you have Thanksgiving dinner at home, you might consider dropping by for some after-dinner entertainment.
If you have a Norbert in your life, or just want to change it up a little for the holiday, consider Thanksgiving at Artango. We’ve included the whole menu below, and if you want to learn more or make reservations, just visit Artango.
