5 Extravagant Holiday Meals Out on the Town


The Meritage

Wine lovers will want to take a trip to The Meritage, which shares its name with a favorite wine variety and is located within the five-star Boston Harbor Hotel. Chef Daniel Bruce served as the chef for the Boston Wine Festival for 19 years before bringing his unmatched knack for pairing food and wine to The Meritage. The Thanksgiving dinner features upscale deconstructions of classic Thanksgiving dishes. His spin on the main course is a kale and caramelized onion stuffed organic turkey breast with pecan raisin dressing. There's also a seared scallop dish if you want to forgo the bird. Some imported cheeses and a chocolate tasting finish off this high-end dining experience. There are five seatings beginning at 4:30 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, at a price of $85 per adult.
