There are a handful of us out there that didn’t inherit cooking genes, and the idea of whipping up a holiday meal may seem like the most daunting thing on Earth. Whether you’re a Thanksgiving orphan or just simply can’t be bothered to cook that jalapeño cornbread stuffing for your friends and fam dinner, not to worry – we’ve gathered some spots where you can enjoy Latin-inspired holiday treats without having to toil over the hot stove.


Bellmónt Spanish Restaurant

Bellmont Spanish Restaurant is the newest restaurant on the block in Coral Gables. For Thanksgiving, they will be offering a 4 course dinner for those that are over traditional turkey and more into the idea of a suckling piglet. (Bless, I’m sure he’s very delicious). The 4 course prix fixe menu includes an appetizer, the wood fired roasted pig (or choice of leg of lamb) and a dessert. Menu will be available from Thanksgiving through Sunday.

Toro Toro

Acclaimed chef Ricardo Sandoval’s Pan-Latin steakhouse and lodge has been serving the thriving Downtown Miami scene for the past year and he’s got a special Thanksgiving menu prepared with the signature Latin twist. The specialized dishes will begin with pumpkin soup and roasted honey chipotle ham with chorizo stuffing. You want to make sure you stick around for dessert, warm apple empanadas in a rum glaze with vanilla ice cream. The lunch pre-fix menu starts at $35 per person, up to $62.

Sugar Cane Bar & Grill

Hidden away in the heart of Miami’s Midtown district is Sugarcane Bar & Grill, and the lush and private ambiance is just the spot to have an intimate and unique Thanksgiving dinner. Chef Balloo usually cooks up a special menu for the holiday, and this year will be serving up an a la carte menu which includes a delicious-sounding oven roasted & fried turkey chorizo bread pudding. NOM. Also included are a roasted pumpkin soup with truffled manchego crouton, pan seared Florida flounder and more. Check out the full menu here.

Rosa Mexicano

Rosa Mexicano will be providing a bountiful Thanksgiving feast with a Mexicano twist. The menu is almost entirely hand crafted for this night, including the chile-ancho roasted turkey with huitlacoche sweet plantain stuffing, cranberries, and Mexican chorizo potatoes. It doesn’t even end there! Another entree offered is turkey enchiladas with chile sauce. Did I mention complimentary hot Mexican Apple Cider upon arrival? Check the sample menu here.

Casa Juancho

Spanish restaurant Casa Juancho has created a Thanksgiving dinner menu that remains mostly traditional, except for some sweet surprises. Thyme-roasted turkey will be served with stuffing, pecan sweet potato crisp, green beans and cranberry port reserve. Yeah, the usual. But you can finish the meal with a pumpkin pie and/or pumpkin flan! I choose the “and.” Price: $25.
