The time is here again. Jolly Ole’ St. Nick will make an advance stop in Kettering on Monday, Dec. 5 when Dinner With Santa is hosted at Hawthorn Grill.
Meat Loaf and kid-sized spaghetti and meatballs will be featured along with the regular menu. Kids can visit with Santa and families an experience the holiday decor and the warm fireplace while dining on chef Candace Rinke’s made-from-scratch delights.
Chicken and Biscuits, Pumpkin Risotto, Stuffed Chicken Breast, Grilled Polenta and BBQ Ribs are among the entrees on the menu. The half-pound Angus Grill Burger, Steak Tips and Mushrooms and Pan Seared Walleye are other favorites. As always, Hawthorn Grill offers a selection of artisan pizzas, salads and appetizers like Ed Hill Chicken Liver Pate, Pierogi, Pimento Cheese Fritters, Crab Cakes and Smoked Trout Pate.
Desserts like Warm Chocolate Cake and Caramel Apple Bread Pudding are ideal finishing touches, as are the selection of dessert wines, ports and coffees.
