St. Regis puts on Thanksgiving Day feast

IF you were a Pilgrim who struggled to bring in the harvest, this Thanksgiving Day with foie gras, truffles and pralines (in addition to glorious turkey) would be a bounty of sinful pleasures.

Fortunately, there's not much puritan spirit in Shanghai and those who want a truly delightful and decadent experience for Thanksgiving - turkey, ham and all the trimmings - need look no further than The St. Regis Shanghai and its bountiful offerings.

The St. Regis alone is the reason to give thanks and the hotel is one of the most popular places in Shanghai for Americans, Canadians - and anyone else who wants to enjoy a spectacular traditional Thanksgiving meal.

There's also bespoke turkey for home and everything else (see hotline number).

From November 22 to 25, The St. Regis will offer a four-course Thanksgiving dinner menu at 350 yuan (US$52) per person at Danieli's Italian restaurant. Diners can also order from the seasonal ala carte menu.

Chef Roberto Cimmino has prepared a very special menu. The 350-yuan set menu includes choices of terrine of ham, chicken foie gras, sweet corn puree, truffles vinaigrette, pumpkin risotto with sour cream and chives, turkey breast prepared sous-vide and then roasted, candied sweet potatoes, chestnut and mushroom stuffed turkey leg "Ballantines," cranberry sauce, roasted potatoes and creamed spinach. The desert of chocolate praline cake with hazelnut cream brulee is included in the set menu. Other desserts, such as the pumpkin and mince pies, are also available from the ala carte menu.

For those who are going to host Thanksgiving dinner at home, you should not miss the delicious and succulent turkey and ham which is freshly prepared by Executive Chef Warren Brown and his culinary team. Turkey (4-6 kilograms for 8-10 people) at 228 yuan per kilogram, and glazed bone ham (3 kilograms for 8-10 people) at 198 yuan per kilogram. Traditional desserts such as pumpkin pie, mince pie and Christmas pudding are also available for your choice.

The St. Regis uses only top-grade USA imported turkeys accompanied by only the freshest locally sourced and organic vegetables. There's homemade gravy, cranberry sauce, candied sweet potatoes, mixed vegetables and a turkey stuffing made with sage and onion.

Located on the 39th floor of The St. Regis Shanghai, Danieli's has been voted one of Shanghai's best Italian restaurants for six years consecutively. It has a stunning interior design and spectacular panoramic views of Shanghai.

Danieli's focus is on simple and fresh food. All the team are knowledgeable about wine so they can assist guests in pairing that perfect wine for your Thanksgiving feast.

The St. Regis has 328 guest rooms, including 47 suites. The standard rooms are 48 square meters, among the largest standard rooms in the city.

Situated in the heart of financial and business area, The St. Regis is only a couple of minutes away from culture and entertainment venues. It is near the Shanghai World Financial Center, Shanghai New International Exhibition Center, Shanghai Oriental Art Center and the Maglev train station.
