A Unique Culinary Experience

For an elevated culinary experience join us for dinner and pre-order your Break-in Turkey. Sébastien Giannini, a pioneer in glass-container cooking has created a special whiskey-infused turkey roulade with black truffle mousseline. This impressive feat is steamed in a glass bottle aromatizing the turkey while also keeping it moist and delicious. Once finished the juicy turkey is sliced and served with a side of seared foie gras, gingerbread and potato mousseline that is, you guessed it, topped with more truffles.

The Break-in Turkey package is family-style and also includes a choice of appetizer, three sides, and a dessert platter. All for $129 per person. The package is for 2 – 4 people and will be available during dinner on November 25th – 28th, 2019.

Please contact the hotel directly at least 24 hours in advance at 1-844-617-1972 or by emailing reservations@thewatergatehotel.com to book your elevated Thanksgiving Dinner.

Why do Thanksgiving in Washington DC?

Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, and Ronald Reagan were all photographed at turkey press conferences with their guests of honor; but it was President George H.W. Bush who made the turkey pardon official when he took office in 1989.

For locals and visitors alike Washington D.C. is the ideal spot to spend Thanksgiving. It’s the epicenter of political life, and we can pay tribute to America’s history. The first president to unofficially pardon a turkey was Abraham Lincoln, who instructed the White House to save a bird given to the president; John F. Kennedy then started a trend by publicly sparing a turkey given to the White House.

We look forward to serving you – Don’t forget to make your reservation!
