Tradition on a plate
Bet it’s good – didn’t try
Carrot Cake – terrific
Gingerbread mousse – outstanding
About a dozen of us went to the Hyatt for Thanksgiving Dinner. They had traditional dishes along with some Asian fare. At first they just had mashed potatoes with pumpkin, an interesting dish but not traditional. When the cooks found out we longed for mashed potatoes, they whipped some up. How’s that for service?
I did get salad and more vegetables, but a cook asked me not to take pictures.
I ate way too much, but it isn’t often I get cheese – or a wide array of fruits, vegetables, sweets. I highly recommend the gingerbread bread pudding. It was mostly light, fluffy gingerbread flavored cream. Just divine.
They did have a set menu you could get in the lobby bar, but the cafe offered more choices for less, so we went with that.
