Savor the Triangle’s Tastiest Thanksgiving Day Feast Right Here in Raleigh

Monday, October 27th, 2014

thanksgiving tradition turkeyEveryone here in the Triangle loves turkey. It is the historic Thanksgiving staple on every North Carolina table. At the very first Thanksgiving in 1621, it was one of the only meats readily available and plentiful enough to provide continuous meals for the event that lasted several days. The Pilgrims and Puritans and the local peoples celebrated the rich bountiful harvest produced near Plymouth (now present day Massachusetts).

Speaking of traditions, 2014 is the 70th Annual WRAL Raleigh Christmas Parade that always, very surprisingly, happens on the Saturday before Thanksgiving each and every year in Downtown Raleigh. 65,000 people from across the Triangle around the 1.4 mile parade route will be cheering and looking for Santa Claus. There is time that Saturday to watch the 2.5 hour morning parade which starts at 9:40 a.m. and then dine with us for lunch or dinner on the way home. You can discuss which floats were the best while enjoying our delicious, farm fresh weekend cuisine.

At Mia Francesca Trattoria, we offer a bountiful Thanksgiving Day Buffet on the holiday itself, Thursday November 27. This is our annual Thanksgiving Day Feast here at North Hills in Midtown Raleigh and the harvest is plentiful and the celebration all day from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.

All the time-honored fresh holiday fixings will be present in our Thanksgiving Day Buffet:

  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Mashed North Carolina Sweet Potatoes
  • Traditional Stuffing
  • Green Bean Casserole
  • Braised Turkey Leg, Roasted Turkey Breast
  • Honey Baked Ham

We have it all!

Our Thanksgiving Day Buffet also features a wonderful Fresh Fruit Display as well as our farm to table Mixed Seasonal Vegetables.

Mia Francesca Trattoria also presents:

  • Autumn Salad: mixed greens, local apples, pears, candied walnuts, goat cheese, apple cider vinaigrette
  • Caesar Salad: hearts of romaine, garlic croutons, shave Parmigiano Reggiano
  • Antipasti Display: imported cheeses, charcuterie, marinated artichoke hearts, seasonal jams, spiced pecans, and herbed crostini roasted bell peppers

Of course, we are a Northern Italian restaurant, and pasta lovers will enjoy our Pasta con Mozzarella with penne pasta, tomato basil sauce, parmesan, and fresh mozzarella; as well as our Pasta con Pollo with grilled chicken, penne pasta, pine nuts, and a smooth basil cream sauce. Dessert lovers will love our almost countless divine dessert selections! Let Mia Francesca do the cooking and cleaning so making precious holiday memories with family and friends are easier than ever.

Make your Thanksgiving reservation today so all of the family and long-time friends can come to Raleigh and enjoy the North Hills Holiday experience! Call us today!


Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
