For the first time, the restaurant is allowing patrons to enjoy its flavorful offerings at home
LAKE FREDERICK, VA. – The team behind Region’s 117, one of Northern Virginia’s hottest farm-to-table restaurants, will be offering pick-up Thanksgiving dinners for the first time this year, allowing patrons to enjoy its farm-fresh meals from the comfort of their own home.
“Everyone loves Thanksgiving, but not everyone loves cooking for it,” said Executive Chef Scott Bilstad, who runs Region’s 117, not only preparing the food, but also managing the menu and vendors–a unique characteristic found at all Trilogy properties nationwide where executive chefs manage onsite restaurants. “Our take-home meals allow you to have the freshest and most flavorful offerings from our network of Virginia farmers without working yourself too hard.”
During the “Giving Thanks” event, customers will be able to pick up a full meal including roast turkey breast, maple sage sausage stuffing, green beans almandine, mashed potatoes, cranberry relish and pumpkin or pecan pie to eat at home.
Located inside the Shenandoah Lodge & Athletic Club at Trilogy® at Lake Frederick, an exclusive and upscale 55+ lifestyle resort community, Region’s has views of the picturesque 117-acre Lake Frederick and the surrounding Shenandoah Valley.
The restaurant has earned accolades since opening. It’s been named one of the 100 best brunch spots and the 100 most scenic restaurants in America based on customer reviews from Open Table and recently won three awards in the Northern Virginia Daily annual reader poll in the categories for best dinner, best fine dining and best restaurant overall in Winchester and Frederick County.
Region’s 117’s menu includes fruits, vegetables and meats from Virginia farmers as well as a selection of white and red wines from wineries ranging from Front Royal to Charlottesville, many within a 117-mile radius, from which its name comes from. Some ingredients also come from a small chef’s garden on site.
The take-home dinners cost $21.95 per person, but there are options for a $100 package that feeds four to six people and a $199 option that feeds eight to ten. Orders can be made through 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 16, by calling 540-699-3244. Pick-ups can be made at The Market Place inside the Shenandoah Lodge from noon to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 21, and 9 to 11 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 22.
“Thanksgiving should be a time for connecting with family and friends, not toiling away in the kitchen,” added Bilstad. “And if our customers want to enjoy our food from home or at a friend or relative’s house, this is a great option.”
