The Finest Thanksgiving Pies in All the Land, Delivered

The Finest Thanksgiving Pies in All the Land, Delivered

Since time immemorial, Thanksgiving has purported to be a holiday whose primary food focus is the blessed turkey and its loyal side-dish apostles: the cranberry sauce, the stuffing, the gravy, the sweet potatoes, the brussel sprout sliders.

But what if everything you thought you knew about Thanksgiving was wrong? What if turkey wasn’t the star? What if the pilgrims didn’t even really like turkey? What if the real, true star of this annual feast is the pie? Or, more likely, pies? 

It's a theory you might want to test this year, albeit with the help of a few nationwide food delivery services and seven of their finest Thanksgiving pies.

Rocky Goodwin's sincerity, authenticity score points with Hotel Napoleon patrons

Rocky Goodwin's sincerity, authenticity score points with Hotel Napoleon patrons

He’s responsible for handwritten notes and extras that pamper Hotel Napoleon guests: chocolates and champagne, or rose petals scattered on the beds of people celebrating anniversaries.

He plays and sings national anthems for visitors: England’s “God Save the Queen,” France’s “La Marseillaise,” “Advance Australia Fair,” “God Defend New Zealand” and “O Canada,” to name a few.

Guests marking a birthday or other milestone are greeted in the lobby with “Guest of the Day” honors on a sandwich board.

He took care of VIP guests for the National Civil Rights Museum’s Freedom Awards during their recent stays at the Napoleon. Of course, he won’t name names, because that wouldn’t be discreet.

Rocky Goodwin, 52, the Hotel Napoleon’s concierge, said he stepped into a job seemingly made for him when the boutique hotel opened Downtown two years ago.
