The Best Harvest Menu for Your Holiday Season

Fall…it’s the coziness of your softest sweater, the scent of cinnamon and warm apple cider, the closeness of family and friends, and –of course—the flavors of your favorite comfort foods. Nothing makes fall—and the holidays—bright like seasonal savories. This is why we’ve graced our harvest menu with local Brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, beets, squash, and more. These delights are at their bests and are even better when cooked to perfection and paired with rich, delectable proteins.

McKendrick’s Steak House’s Fall Harvest Menu

Thyme-Roasted-CarrotsIf you know anything about McKendrick’s Steak House or our head chef, Thomas Minchella, then you know fresh, local, and seasonal items are integral to our menu. This is also why our harvest menu is one of our annual favorites. We love cooking with ingredients that remind us of our grandmothers’ kitchens while creating new twists on old classics that excite our taste buds. This fall, we’re serving:

  • Butternut squash
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Oven-roasted okra
  • Wild mushroom risotto
  • Roasted beets
  • Colossal sweet potato
  • Creamed corn (a favored dish among diners)

These autumn staples pair best with our iconic Scottish salmon and succulent lamb loin chops. It’s the kind of food that warms you through-and-through and that makes you want to gather around the table with your favorite people.

Gather around Our Thanksgiving Table

Speaking of gathering around the table, it won’t be long before it’s time for everyone’s favorite fall gathering—Thanksgiving. You know the drill—leading up to the big Thursday, it’s a marathon planning, list-making, and grocery shopping event that culminates in days and hours spent in the kitchen all for one big, beautiful family gathering in which you’re most thankful for the opportunity to sit down.

Skip the planning, shopping, and standing, and come to McKendrick’s Steak House for Thanksgiving. Feast and give thanks in our spacious-yet-intimate dining room. This Thanksgiving (November 23) let us cook the meal. Let us pour the wine. Let us serve you. Let us worry about what happens after the meal is over (that should be the least of your worries).
