This Christmas Day, the acclaimed chefs at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino will prepare a feast to remember for guests of every age to enjoy. Three of the resort’s seven restaurants will offer dining specials on Sunday, December 25th so make plans to celebrate the holiday with friends and family at the resort’s Fresh Grill Buffet, POM or at The Bistro.
The Bistro will celebrate Christmas with a delicious entrée of veal loin scallopini and Florida rock shrimp Imperial. A garlic-herb potato raft, sautéed asparagus and a lemon-Dijon beurre blanc accompany this premium cut of veal for $38. The Bistro opens for dinner at 5pm and will also be offering its regular menu.
There will also be a Christmas day special in POM of herb-grilled New Zealand lamb chops and crab-stuffed jumbo shrimp. Accompanying this dish is aged cheddar whipped potatoes, roasted vegetables, rosemary-mint demi glace and garlic-citrus butter sauce for $36. POM’s Christmas hours are from 6am until 2am and the restaurant’s regular menu will also be available.
At the Fresh Grill Buffet, get the holiday started with Christmas Brunch from 10am to 3:30pm. Breakfast specialties will include omelets cooked to order, eggs Benedict, smoked bacon, country sausage, apple pancakes, and almond French toast. Christmas Dinner will be served all day and will include an array of soups and salads including grilled chicken and shrimp Caesar salad, arugula and baby spinach with strawberries, Baja style shrimp cocktail, wild cream of mushroom soup and seafood jambalaya. Guests can also enjoy succulent meats from the carving station including roast prime rib of beef, honey-Dijon baked Virginia ham and maple-glazed turkey breast.

There will be a variety of Chef’s specialties including grilled to order New York strip steaks, baked filet of salmon Florentine with Piccata sauce, roasted leg of lamb stuffed with feta cheese, spinach and roasted red peppers, corn bread stuffing with maple-roasted sausage, and candied sweet potatoes. Guests will need to save some room for a trip to the extensive dessert bar.
