The Celeste Hotel – Thanksgiving at Aurora in Orlando, FL

Main Dining at the Aurora

Come join us at The Celeste Hotel for an East Orlando Thanksgiving Day feast! The best part—well, besides the quality of the meal, that is? You don’t have to cook it or clean up after it!

Thanksgiving Day Menu at The Celeste Hotel’s Aurora Restaurant

Our Aurora restaurant will be serving up a Thanksgiving meal on Thursday, November 25th from 11 AM till 5 PM. Whether you’re staying here as a guest at our Tribute Portfolio hotel or not, we welcome you to enjoy the smorgasbord without any of the usual logistical headaches of doing your own Turkey Day shebang.

Chef Mike Trudnak and his team have planned out quite the menu for this Aurora Thanksgiving celebration. For the first course, you’ll be able to choose between a Roasted Sweet Potato Soup, a Pork Belly Slider (complete with cranberry BBQ sauce and Napa slaw), or a lavish Harvest Salad.

The main entrée comes next, and suffice it to say you may struggle to make a decision—such are the temptations Chef Trudnak has orchestrated for the Thanksgiving table centerpiece. There’s Traditional Roast Turkey, naturally, accompanied by smashed Yukon potatoes, haricot verts, herbed bread pudding, and pan gravy.

But you’re also likely to be tempted by the Pan Seared Trout served with horseradish, roasted root vegetables, haricot verts, bacon lardons, and lemon, plus the Petite Filet Medallion & Prawn with its charred asparagus, smashed Yukon taters, and brandy peppercorn sauce. Then there’s the perfectly autumnal Roasted Acorn Squash with pumpkin risotto, local harvest veggies, and blackberry gastrique.

There’ll also be a kids menu, by the way, available for diners 11 years old and younger.

Whatever you do, just save some room for dessert. It’ll be sheer perfection of a Thanksgiving culinary finish! Aurora’s Thanksgiving dessert menu includes a Pumpkin Mousse, a cheese board featuring crackers, fruit, and chutney, and—most lavish of all—the White Dwarf. That’s a white-chocolate balloon dome paired with salted caramel ice cream, a blondie brownie, and candied walnuts, the whole affair melted tableside by rum-flavored caramel.
