Where To Enjoy Thanksgiving Dinner In Vancouver

H Tasting Lounge

Autumn is a gorgeous season in Vancouver, with the changing leaves, the crisp air, and the still bright yet gradually darkening days. Thanksgiving (October 10, 2022) provides an opportunity to share a bountiful feast with friends and family in restaurants around the city. There are many takeout options as well for those who want to host a gathering at home.

Each of the Sequoia restaurants (The Sandbar, Cardero’s, Seasons in the Park, Teahouse) is offering an à la carte Thanksgiving menu October 9 and 10.

For example, the menu at Seasons in the Park starts with butternut squash soup and a harvest salad of baby kale, roasted beets, crumbled feta, pumpkin seeds, and sherry vinaigrette. Your main is oven roasted white and dark turkey meat, garlic mashed potatoes, cranberry herb stuffing, Brussels sprouts, honey glazed carrots, cranberry sauce, and pan jus.
