Three Reasons Thanksgiving Rocks at the Epicurean Hotel

TurkeyThanksgiving is right around the corner and it’s your turn to host. The prepping, cooking, cleaning sounds downright exhausting and this year you’d like to just relax and spend more quality time with your family and friends instead of stressing about the turkey and perfecting granny’s pumpkin pie recipe.

Epicurean Hotel and Élevage to the rescue! We’re giving you three reasons Tampa’s only 4-Diamond, food-focused culinary resort, the Epicurean Hotel, has devised an appealing solution for the entire family — making it your best Thanksgiving ever!

One: The menu features four regional Thanksgiving Day Dinners channeling muses from the Traditional, Cajun, Wine Country and the soulful South. Two-time James Beard Foundation Best Chef South semi-finalist, Chad Johnson, has also crafted apropos sides and desserts to properly elevate the experience. Are you ready to dig in?
