Give grandma a break and treat her to a family feast at one of these fine restaurants. Don’t want to cook but still want the whole at-home experience? Some locations will let you pre-order a to-go meal instead. Pick it up ready to serve in time for Thanksgiving, trimmings and all. We won’t even tell anyone you didn’t make it.

And don’t think for a second I forgot my meat-free friends. You’ll find two full vegan feasts available at Bean and Fern below.

Remember: Many restaurants will book to capacity due to limited hours and high demand so be sure to call in advance and make a reservation.
