The Signature Room at the 95th in Chicago is celebrating its 20th anniversary atop the famed John Hancock building, 1,000 feet above Lake Michigan. Along with The Signature Lounge at the 96th, the venues serve more than 800,000 guests annually with gourmet cuisine made of locally sourced products. For Thanksgiving, the restaurant will build upon its popular new "Hybrid Buffet" concept — every Sunday guests can enjoy brunch served as part buffet and part à la carte. On Thanksgiving Day, an even bigger "Hybrid Buffet Feast" will be offered for Chicagoans looking for a different kind of Thanksgiving dinner experience.

Served on Thursday Nov. 28, the gourmet dinner will combine buffet-style starters and sweets with an individually plated entrée, prepared and planned by executive chef Rosalia Barron and her culinary team.

The holiday dining experience begins with a lavish buffet filled with appetizers such as smoked salmon, chilled crab claws, cheeses and chutneys, a made-to-order salad bar, lentil salad with truffle-poached bay shrimp, Southern BBQ chicken salad with cornbread croutons, caramelized apple and gouda crostata, roasted pumpkin soup, buttermilk biscuits with rustic country gravy, and more.

After the starter buffet, guests can select one or more entrées, which are plated and served directly from the kitchen. The most traditional Thanksgiving dish — turkey — is served as a plate of roasted turkey with turkey leg confit, caramelized onion stuffing, with a chestnut cream sauce. Other options include braised pork loin served with butter braised green beans, or prime rib with grilled kale and radicchio. For those looking for seafood or vegetarian options, the menu features pan-seared shrimp and scallops with creamy cranberry grits and an orange butter sauce, or pumpkin lasagna with basil-infused tofu and a sage cream sauce.

A finer take on classic side-dishes — caramelized onion stuffing, roasted yams with maple bourbon butter, grilled kale and radicchio, mashed potatoes, and butter-braised green beans — will be paired with the entrée of choice.

To top it all off, the grandiose dinner serving ends with a sweets buffet including pumpkin cheesecake with toasted walnuts, pecan pie squares, and classic carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.

And to not miss out on the traditional next-day leftover Turkey sandwiches, diners will get a take-home package of freshly carved turkey at the end of the meal. The Thanksgiving Hybrid Buffet will be served from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the cost of $70 for adults: $35 for children ages 4 to 12; and free for those less than 3 years of age


The Signature Room Serves Thanksgiving Day Hybrid Buffet - Recipes

If you find yourself dreaming of the Texas Hill Country, savory comforts, spice, and the sultry depth of a fine burgundy - discover Signature, a San Antonio Restaurant Inspired by Chef Andrew Weissman, a four-time James Beard Award nominee.

The menu is straightforward and beguiling, featuring Andrew&rsquos contemporary interpretations of classic dishes &mdash fresher, brighter versions of traditional cuisine enlivened with unconventional Texas spirit.

Local and organic ingredients change the menu as the seasons peak and wane, but the constants are quality, flavor, artistry in the kitchen and a warm welcome when you walk in the door.


The 4 Places To Eat Out In Austin This Thanksgiving

Not cooking at home this Thanksgiving? Here are the places to enjoy across Austin.

For most people, Thanksgiving is a time to spend with loved ones enjoying a rich and plentiful meal of turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes and near-endless sides. However, not everyone in the country enjoys their magnificent meal from the comforts of home. According to Eater, an average of 14 million people eat Thanksgiving dinner at restaurants every year. If you’re among those people, and you live in Texas, then there’s little reason to fret. Several pockets of Austin’s culinary arts scene are open on Thanksgiving, ready to serve up warm meals and good times for anyone without a table of their own. Here are just a few of those diners and eateries to be thankful for this year:

1. Hoover’s Cooking: As far as Thanksgiving goes, it’s hard to argue with the warmth and rich flavors of the traditional turkey meal. Barring that, though, Hoover’s is as good of a substitute as they come. First opened in 1998, Hoover’s serves up tried-and-true Southern cooking, and for this Thanksgiving, the team of chefs is delivering a custom menu made entirely from scratch. To begin, guests can choose from one of a half dozen or so entrees, like smoked ham steak, Jamaican jerk chicken, Cajun pork roast, grilled Portobello grit cakes and, of course, oven-roasted turkey. And since no meal is complete without sides, you also have the option of mashed potatoes, buttered carrots, mustard greens or candied yams. Plus, the meal includes cornbread, cranberry sauces, a Caribbean fruit salad and a squash medley. At $19.49 per person, this buffet-style meal is a veritable Turkey Day deal.

2. Maggiano’s Little Italy: Generally speaking, Italian isn’t your go to meal choice when it comes to a proper Thanksgiving. But even with a somewhat limited range of options this year, Maggiano’s Little Italy is worth a visit for anyone seeking out a great holiday meal. This semi-upscale chain has locations across the U.S., but the Austin restaurant, located in the luxurious Domain shopping center, is an especially beautiful example of the mix of class and Old World Italian charm that Maggiano’s tries to purvey. And even without serving up oven-roasted turkey, Maggiano’s still has to plenty to offer hungry Thanksgiving guests. For an appetizer, why not try one of the signature flat breads, like chicken sausage or margarita? Maggiano’s also has a huge selection of signature pastas, like the chicken-heavy Rigatoni D or the rustic chicken and shrimp al forno. While there’s no apple or pumpkin pie available, end your meal with a warm apple crostada or creme brulee.

3. Onion Creek Grille: Joseph Carrejo is the head chef at the Onion Creek Grille, a casual-elegant restaurant located in the posh Omni Hotel in downtown Austin. According to the restaurant’s website, Carrejo has a rather earnest and simple approach to his culinary work: “Cook with your heart, and your food will have a soul.” And whether in the Art of Breakfast buffet, or the a la carte lunch and dinner selections, the food at Onion Creek Grille definitely has that distinct sense of soul. Not only does it have that heart and energy, but the menu for the Grille is also among the more diverse offerings for Thanksgiving meals. Dinner guests can enjoy dishes like The Cowboy – a pepper-crusted bone-in ribeye served with roasted root vegetables and au gratin potatoes – or the Brick Chicken, boursin whipped potatoes paired with charred cauliflower and golden raisins. The grille also has traditional salmon, meatloaf and scallops platters.


A Bite of Chicago

It’s hard to say whether Joe Fontana, the mastermind behind Fry the Coop and its unique line-up of chicken sandwiches, knew what was ahead when he opened his first “Coop” in Oak Lawn in 2017.

But he was definitely ahead of the curve.

With chicken wars raging amongst the big chains like Popeyes, Chick-fil-A and Wendys, to name a few, chicken is hot.

And so is Fontana’s Nashville hot chicken which is currently available at Fry the Coop locations in Elmhurst and the Loop’s Wells St. Market in addition to Oak Lawn.

Another location, in the West Loop in the Mexique space formerly helmed by Michelin-starred chef Carlos Gaytán is in the works.

According to Fontana, this is just the beginning. He does not think it out of the question to see Fry the Coops across the country–perhaps even the globe.

Right now, he’s sticking to Chicago with plans to open 10 to 15 locations in the next several years.

We talked with Fontana at a “Fried Chicken and Bubbles” event at Wells St. Market that paired Nashville hot with champagne. An excellent combination, by the way.

The creative menu and pairings for the evening kicked things up a notch with:

Paired with: Chandon Sparkling Red

You’re not going to get this kind of originality at Popeyes.

The Fry the Coop story is an interesting one. Originally, Joe was thinking meatballs (perhaps due to his Italian heritage– and Sicilian Grandmother)–but after a meal at Crack Shack in California, he became hooked on Nashville hot.

The Chicago area native (Villa Park) and former Willowbrook High School standout, flew California to return home and open his first coop.

Although Fry the Coop is nowhere near alone in the growing lineup of chicken shacks, Fontana’s creative recipes, passion and drive gives this emerging chain a lot to crow (or squawk) about.

Fry the Coop’s chicken comes in five different levels of heat and four variations of the chicken breast sandwich: Nashville Fried Chicken (with a vinegar cole slaw), Chicken & Cheese (with two slices of American cheese), Spicy Butter Fried Chicken and Donut Fried Chicken (donuts in lieu of buns).

The halal-certified chicken breasts are sourced from Mar-Jac Poultry in Georgia. They are tenderized and placed in a dry brine (cayenne, paprika, garlic power, onion powder, and brown sugar) for 24 hours. The chicken is breaded by hand and fried twice in beef fat.

The “Come Back Sauce” is a combo of mayonnaise, ketchup, chopped pickles, Louisiana hot sauce and pepper.

Hand-cut fries follow the original McDonald’s recipe of using Russet Burbank potatoes fried in beef fat.

Beer is available at the Oak Lawn and Elmhurst location and a full bar is in the works for the West Loop location. Although the Wells St. location does not serve beer, it is available (along with bubbles) at the market’s Grand Central Bar.

Wells St. Market location

Menu: The Wells Street Market menu features Fry the Coop’s signature Nashville Fried ChickenSandwich ($10.49), Chicken & Cheese Sandwich ($10.99), Spicy Butter Fried Chicken Sandwich ($9.99), and Donut Fried Chicken Sandwich ($9.99). Sides include House Fries , Seasoned Fries , Cheese Fries , and Coleslaw .

When and where: Hours: 11am – 4pm Monday through Friday. Wells Street Market is located at 205 West Wacker Drive. 312 614 4176.

Other locations: 5128 W. 95th St. in Oak Lawn, 623 W. North Ave. in Elmhurst and 205 W. Wacker Dr. in Wells Street Market, and coming soon 1529 W. Chicago Ave.

We want to thank our market sponsor, The Bottle Shop, for giving us great wine & food pairing recommendations. These wines go with our vendors’ Thanksgiving products and our Thanksgiving Recipes . All wines are available for purchase at The Bottle Shop.

Big Fire Pinot Gris 2010 – This Pinot Gris is great with turkey. It is rich enough to handle garlic, onions, and herbs. The citrus and peach notes refresh the palate between the many flavorful, high-fat dishes, making it a natural for the demands of Thanksgiving Day. Big Fire Oregon Pinot Gris opens up with white peach, apple and Seville orange zest. In the middle there are notes of Tangelo, spice and an herbal note. The finish is pure lime and flint. $18.00

Alvarez de Toledo Godello – Such a deal, this lovely Spanish white was rated 90 points by Robert Parker, Jr. This unoaked beauty delivers a lovely perfume of baking spices, melon, peaches, and minerals. Round, spicy, and pleasure-bent, this smooth-textured, impeccably balanced effort over-delivers in a very big way. This should be an interesting new Thanksgiving wine. $13.00

Hook & Ladder Chardonnay – This Chardonnay is from a vineyard situated in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley, where vineyards produce cool climate grapes widely recognized as some of the finest in the world. Fermented 100% in French oak barrels, 75% of wine goes through a malolactic fermentation that naturally creates a light buttery flavor and smooth mouth feel. While on its lees, the wine is hand stirred to develop additional complexity of flavors and aromas. This Chardonnay is made in the style that put California Chardonnay on the map. It is buttery and oaky but nicely balanced, not over the top. A slight minerality complements the crisp green apple finish. $20.00

Robert Oatley Gewürztraminer 2010 – This single vineyard, mature Gewurztraminer vines were planted in Mudgee Australia by the Oatley family in 2000. The wine is alluring, textured and dry. It received a 90 point rating by both Wine Spectator and Robert Parker who said, “This wine bursts from the glass with smack-you-in-the-face Gewürz aromas of roses, ginger and lychee, and doesn’t let up on the palate. It’s full and a bit viscous without getting blowsy, with lingering spice notes on the finish. Drink now.” Gewurztraminer has long been a Thanksgiving favorite because it is rich enough to pair with turkey, and the spicy notes work with the Thanksgiving side dishes. $18.00

Dr. L Riesling – Riesling wines are a top pick white wine for pairing with Thanksgiving dinner. Riesling’s innate flavors of apple, apricot, honey, and its clarifying acidity give it a significant pairing edge with the likes of sweet potatoes, turkey meat, and spice-laden or herb-filled stuffing. This wine comes exclusively from traditional vineyards with steep slopes and slate soil, and embodies the elegant and racy style of classic Mosel Riesling. By working closely with growers on long-term contract, brothers Ernst and Thomas Loosen are able to assure excellent quality in every vintage. The soft sweetness of Riesling is an excellent complement to the saltiness of a smoked turkey, the acidity makes it friendly to all foods. $14.00

2011 Manoir du Carra, Beaujolais Nouveau – Just barely three weeks old, this fresh fruity red from the granite hills of Beaujolais comes entirely from Gamay grapes. Beaujolais Nouveau is released each year in mid November and is a celebration of harvest and a festive event. This bistro style wine should be consumed in copious quantities in the first full year of its life. The cranberry aromas and flavors are a natural match for traditional Thanksgiving fare. $13.00

Roncier (Pinot Noir) – The label is intriguingly vague but the grapes for this delicious wine are grown in the Mercurey appellation in Burgundy. This brand has been produced by Maison L. Tramier for decades and enjoyed in Europe as an everyday table wine. On the nose are floral aromas of cherry and red fruits, with a round palate of dark cherry and forest floor flavors and a lovely Pinot Noir finish. If you have been looking for a consistent, delicious wine for everyday drinking with true Burgundian character, your search is over. A winner with beef or turkey, you can also pair this with polenta and mushroom ragout or grilled salmon. $13.00

Grand Veneur Côtes du Rhône Rouge, Les Champauvins – Grand Veneur has been heralded as one of the most brilliant estates in Chateauneuf du Pape. Always a particular favorite of Robert Parker he rates this vintage, “the single-vineyard Cotes du Rhone, the 2010 Les Champauvins, is a smaller cuvee made largely from Grenache (70%) and the rest Syrah and Mourvedre. This is the poor person’s Chateauneuf du Pape, with notes of garrigue, lavender, black cherry jam, licorice, and a hint of blacker fruits. Rich, full-bodied, ripe, with sweet tannin and lots of concentration, this is a beauty to drink over the next 8-10 years – it is that rich and concentrated.” -Wine Advocate (Issue 201, June 2012), 92 pts BEST BUY. $19.00

2010 Saint Cosme Cotes-du-Rhone – This rare 100% Syrah has again scored 90 points from Wine Spectator, the previous vintage was on last year’s top wines of the year list. They say, “This has lush, silky-textured layers of dark plum, anise and crushed blackberry fruit, woven with black tea and graphite notes through the finish. Impresses with its length and depth. Drink now through 2012.” The Syrah grape can bring a spicy edge or a meaty character to the table which often increases the complexity, while graciously handling the cornucopia of flavors in a traditional Thanksgiving meal. The prevalent peppery notes of Syrah will partner well with the herb-infused stuffing and both the white and dark turkey meat. $17.00

Predator Old Vines Zinfandel – Zinfandel is a good choice for those that like their Thanksgiving wine bold and American. Crispy bacon, coffee gelato, and chocolate covered cherry aromas follow through on a silky entry to a fruity medium-to-full body with lots of jammy berry fruit and a smooth zesty cocoa – dusted citrus finish. The smokiness of this wine would pair nicely with a smoked turkey. $19.00

Santa Julia Tardio – This is a late harvest Torrontes, the signature white grape of Argentina. It is a delicate, sweet wine with pear, apricot and citrus aromas. There is fresh fruit and honey on the palate. In Argentina, they enjoy it with dulce de leche pancakes – this would be a knock out for Thanksgiving dessert because it offers the sweetness and the viscosity to support the rich flavors and robust spice of the pumpkin or apple pie as well as the caramelized flavors found in a pecan pie. $15.00

Mionetto “IL” Moscato – This gentle-sparkling wine is fresh and crisp with a floral bouquet and fruit finish. The gentle effervescence of this distinctive white wine makes it a favorite at celebrations and social gatherings. Serve as an aperitif before brunch, lunch or dinner. Enjoy with dessert – from simple fresh fruit to sophisticated pastries. The “IL” Moscato also serves as an excellent complement to spicier cuisine such as Indian or Thai. $17.00


If you are preparing to resume home entertaining with your family and friends, this new demo from SW Steakhouse and Lakeside executive pastry chef Michael Outlaw speaks to your inner baker. Friday, June 11th.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Named for its prime location at the edge of the Lake of Dreams, this modern, ultra-chic room is renowned for a menu anchored by the finest fish and shellfish. Lakeside’s unique dayboat ocean-to-table fish program showcases Chef David Walzog’s deft hand with seafood. Working closely with small, sustainable fisheries in Maui, he brings the freshest sea treasures from Hawaiian waters to the Las Vegas Strip. Oven roasted lobsters and king crab, prepared simply or chili rubbed, with a choice of drawn butter, basil yuzu or harissa sauce, are other crowd-pleasing favorites.

Expertly charred ribeyes, dry-aged Tomahawk, filet mignon, and both domestic and Japanese Wagyu steaks make Lakeside a beguiling spot for carnivores as well.

Ideal for sharing, the shellfish plateau is a celebration of Maine lobster tail, shrimp cocktail, oysters and King crab legs. Other popular appetizers include the charred Spanish octopus with red cabbage and wild rice, hazelnut romesco Alaskan king crab pasta with oyster mushrooms and basil meyer lemon sauce and the seared big eye tuna with avocado-wasabi puree and pineapple salsa. The Maine lobster bake, served with King crab, shrimp, pancetta, roasted fennel and potatoes – is a taste of the shoreline on one platter.

Surrounded by pine-topped hillsides and nestling a three-acre lake, Lakeside’s spacious outdoor dining terrace is a spectacular setting for dining al fresco. At nightfall, the Lake of Dreams becomes an outdoor performance theatre, with a multimedia experience that combines puppetry, an immersive soundtrack and lighting for a truly unforgettable spectacle.

Without question, even if you need to loosen your belt buckle. Lakeside’s pastry chef Michael Outlaw has a genius way with updating classic desserts – from his warm chocolate cake with whipped crème fraiche and cocoa sauce to the cookies and cream Baked Alaska with crisp meringue and milk chocolate ganache or the tiramisu souffle with mascarpone ice cream and chocolate sauce. But Lakeside’s real sweet tour de force is surely the pineapple upside down cake – made with rare white Kaua'i sugarloaf pineapples imported exclusively by Lakeside, and embellished with brown sugar toffee and coconut sorbet.

The specialty cocktail list at Lakeside complements the kaleidoscopic nature of the outdoor entertainment with such drinks as “Strawberry Spritz”, “All Night Long” and “Smoke on the Water”. But surely the most popular concoction here is the “Lakeside Smash” – a superb mix of Maker’s Mark 46 Bourbon, Chareau Aloe Liqueur, house made hibiscus grenadine, watermelon and lemon juices with mint.

Wynn Las Vegas is home to an impressive total of five Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence winners, including Lakeside. This aptly named restaurant sits at the edge of the shimmering Lake of Dreams. As befits Las Vegas, this is no ordinary lake, with a 90 foot curtain waterfall and imaginative light shows. Lakeside’s 400-label wine list is a spectacle for wine lovers. The selections hail from around the world, with a special focus on California and France. Each is a perfect complement to chef David Walzog’s seafood-centric American menu, showcasing snapper, mahi mahi and swordfish caught in Hawaiian waters.
