Spend Thanksgiving With Us!

Spend Thanksgiving at the Chicago Athletic Association hotel

NOVEMBER 2018 – Whether you’re visiting Chicago for Thanksgiving or just don’t feel like cooking (and frankly, it is a huge undertaking to perfectly cook that bird!), why not spend your holiday at the Chicago Athletic Association hotel? We have a few great options for you, your whole family and friends — and that includes pie!

Cindy’s: Join us in the rooftop restaurant of the hotel for an all-day feast! Cindy’s will be open from 11am-6pm, with the Thanksgiving menu available all day at $70 per person (kids under 12 at $35), plus mimosa kits for $35 (serves 5). Enjoy a family-style meal with a host of dishes like roasted heritage turkey breast with giblet gravy, turkey thigh roulade, mustard spätzle, sage & cornbread stuffing, and more. Make reservations via Reserve or via email for parties of 12+

Pie On The Fly: Who doesn’t love a pie pop-up shop? Come to our pop-up on the ground floor of the hotel at the Madison Street entrance (71 E. Madison Street) between 3-6pm on Tuesday Nov. 20 and Wednesday Nov. 21 only to pick up a pie for your gathering! Pre-order online 48 hours in advance for the flavor of your choice guaranteed, or swing by to pick up a treat while supplies last. Choose from Chocolate Pecan Pie, Maple Cream Pie with spiced creme fraiche, Dutch Apple Pie, and Pumpkin Cheesecake with white chocolate whipped cream, at $20 each. Impress dinner guests with the cocktails and wines you pair with dessert – we’ve put together a flavor guide.

Cherry Circle Room: Join us at the James Beard Award-winning Cherry Circle Room off the Game Room on the hotel’s second floor for a prix-fixe feast. This traditional Thanksgiving Dinner will be served family-style: enjoy a choice of cheddar cheese soup or endive salad, turkey roulade and turkey leg confit, green beans, garlic mashed potatoes and more (table-side dessert cart anyone?)! Wine pairings and Paul McGee’s full menu of cocktails will be available. Dinner will be served from 1pm-8pm at $90 per person (not including tax, beverages, or gratuity). Make your reservations via Reserve, or  email for parties of 10+.
