Join Benny’s on Thanksgiving, November 28

Saturday, November 23rd, 2013

Chef Carlo has been working overtime. The food tasters have too. But it’s all been worth it!

This Thanksgiving Benny’s will be offering our guests and their families a sumptuous, traditional Chef inspired feast! We’ve gone out of our way to offer the traditional Thanksgiving meal that everyone expects, but with all those special Chef touches that you can only get at Benny’s.

View our Thanksgiving Day menu.

The turkey is slow roasted to “fall off the bone” tenderness. The country style stuffing is made in house with house-cured bacon, caramelized onion, and fresh garden sage. The carrots are honey glazed and flame caramelized just before being brought to the table for maximum sweetness. The green bean casserole features delicious cremini, oyster, and shiitake mushrooms and crispy shallots. The roasted sweet potatoes are honey glazed and topped with tasty rosemary marshmallows. Plus traditional creamy mashed potatoes, and a special Benny’s spiced cranberry and port jam to top off your plate!

And what would a Thanksgiving feast be without a dessert from our pastry chef?
This Thanksgiving he’s prepared two seasonal inspired treats:

Traditional pumpkin pie with smoked nutmeg and cinnamon, served with warm star anise
infused cranberry chutney and soft Tahitian vanilla bean cream. Delicious!

Three Sister’s Pecan Pie with Angel’s Envy Bourbon-Caramel Sauce and “Grains of Paradise” Egg Nog Ice Cream. Amazing!

Turkey, mashed potatoes, spiced cranberry and port jam with two additional sides for $34.99.

Our USDA Prime steak and fresh seafood menu with appetizers, soups, salads and sides is also available.

There is simply no better place to celebrate Thanksgiving than Benny’s!

Make your reservations now!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner.

We hope to celebrate it with you!

Another amazing special dessert for Thanksgiving is Spiced Pumpkin Soufflé with Eggnog Crème Anglaise, made from locally grown pumpkins ($12.99).

Benny’s Chop House Recommended by Michelin

Sunday, January 2nd, 2011

“In the shadow of Trump International, this newbie does something others may have thought impossible in a meat and potatoes town:  created a reason for being yet another steakhouse, where macaroni and cheese is considered a vegetable.

The splendid service in particular is what makes Benny’s a standout.  Unsure what cut of steak will appease your appetite? Trust the waiters’ wise words for they are well-versed in the caliber and characteristics of the different cuts.

Should you order a fish that needs filleting, of course they will be happy to strut their stuff with trolley service at your table. Classic side dishes and even less expensive dishes (budget friendly burgers) round out the menu, but the rational and ravenous know to go for a steak and seafood.”
