Hassle-Free Holiday Meals To-Go

As we head though November, the holiday season is fast approaching. For many of us, the holidays will be different this year due to the pandemic. When planning out the golf club’s calendar of events at the start of 2020, one of the events I was most looking forward to was our first Thanksgiving Buffet since the renaming of the Monarch Grill.  

While the buffet won’t be possible this year, you still deserve to take it easy, so let us take care of the cooking for you! Whether you had to alter your Thanksgiving tradition this year and need an alternate plan or you just do not want the hassle of cooking, the Monarch Grill has Thanksgiving Dinner To-Go.

The Thanksgiving To-Go meal serves two people and is a great less mess, less stress option compared to cooking at home. The meal includes two pounds of carved roasted turkey including white and dark meat. Sides for two of mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, stuffing, cranberry sauce and dinner rolls are also included. This package is available for $49 plus tax. If baking isn’t your thing either, don’t worry because we have you covered there as well, add a pumpkin pie to your order for $13.

Orders can be placed through Monday, November 23 at 12:00 pm or until sold out. Pickup will be on Wednesday, November 25 from 12:00 - 6:00 pm. Chef Mark and his team will prep, cook and package your meal and have it ready for you to refrigerate. Simply heat it up on Thanksgiving Day at the time you choose and voila, dinner is served!

This new way to holiday will also continue in December. Chef Mark is already working his creative magic on a to-go option that will be available for pickup on Christmas Eve. Improvising has been a part of this unprecedented year and while we can’t wait to get back to hosting events in the Monarch Grill, just know we are here for you and we’ll get through this time together.

From all of us at the Golf Club at Rio Vista and The Monarch Grill, we wish you and your family a happy Thanksgiving!
