Thanksgiving Goes Gourmet at Downtown Baltimore Hotels

Apropoe's Elevates Holiday Comfort Food at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront This Thanksgiving

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - Nov 24, 2014) - While we all have family recipes that are reminders of a simpler time, those familiar foods are also simpler tastes. This Thanksgiving, Marriott's Harbor East hotel is serving up the season's favorites prepared by the pros. Baltimore Marriott Waterfront's exciting new gathering place, Apropoe's, will be hosting a decadent Thanksgiving Buffet, featuring an impressive menu with something for all tastes.

Apropoe's is a contemporary space, whose design pays homage to the rich and rustic local Baltimore history. Inspired by Maryland comfort foods in the Baltimore tradition, guests will find foods they know and a Little Italy Baltimore dining experience they'll remember. Their Thanksgiving menu is prepared with a farm-to-table inspiration, sourcing sustainable ingredients from the restaurant's own rooftop garden and local farms.

Appetizers are served buffet style and include simple teasers prepared with sophistication. Roasted Blue Hubbard Squash with arugula, fennel, toasted almonds, and a cider vinaigrette highlights those warm, buttery flavor profiles so necessary for any Thanksgiving meal. Apple Chestnut soup with a pancetta crisp garnish and classic Maryland Crab Cakes with chopped fennel and corn slaw finished with warm potato salad complete this delicious round of seasonal openers.

Entrées will be served a la carte. The star of this Baltimore Little Italy restaurant's Thanksgiving feast is Spice-Brined Heritage Turkey with cranberry-ginger chutney and velvety giblet gravy. Other options include Lamb Shanks with golden raisins, garlic, and sherry or Crispy Salmon with mushrooms and braised escarole. Each entrée is complimented with a choice of mushroom and leek stuffing, sweet potatoes with pecan streusel topping, green beans topped with melted brie and crispy shallots, and much more. The meal is rounded out with sweet samplings of Apple "Brown Betty," Pumpkin Panna Cotta, Chocolate Layer Cake, or Cranberry &Pear Cobbler.

Baltimore Marriott Waterfront's Thanksgiving Buffet will be available from 11:30AM-5:00PM. The dining area at Apropoe's can accommodate guests like a Baltimore wedding venue, so there will be plenty of space for guests. The first seating of the day will happen between 11:30AM-12:00PM, the second seating between 2:00PM-2:30PM, and the final seating will conclude the day between 4:30PM-5:00PM.
