Here are the 405 hot spots offering food packages for the feast-heavy holiday.
If you are wanting to avoid at least one taxing part of the holiday chaos, local restaurants have to-go family-style dinners that make it much easier to create that beautiful holiday spread. The cost of turkey is high this year, so overall prices are higher than previous years in some cases, but most of these packages have everything you need to feed a large family with very little effort on your part. Other concepts are offering Thanksgiving specials on breads and desserts to make things a little easier.
Broadway 10. Provision Concepts is frying up your Thanksgiving dinner with a package that features a 13-pound fried turkey, cranberry sauce, smoked gouda mashed potatoes and rolls. Ordering has already begun and will remain open until they sell out.
Harvey Bakery & Kitchen. Instead of frozen or brown ‘n’ serve rolls, consider Chef Alyssa Ulrich’s delicious rosemary-parmesan-garlic boules or a loaf of whole wheat sourdough. Harvey has a small Thanksgiving menu available for pickup on Nov. 23, including pecan bars, morning buns and cookies.
The Hutch on Avondale. The Nichols Hills hot spot has a different twist on the holiday dinner that features an a la carte menu with smoked salmon, smoked beef tenderloin, charcuterie and the magical dauphinoise potatoes. Orders must be placed by Sunday, Nov. 20.
Iron Star Urban Barbeque. A Good Egg’s barbecue concept has a Thanksgiving package that includes their delicious smoked turkey, mac ‘n’ cheese, rolls, cranberry sauce and other sides. Orders must be placed by Friday, Nov. 18.
The Jones Assembly. The part you’re really curious about: yes, they’ll have Frose to go for dinner or “dinner prep.” The turkey is from Schwab’s, so you’re really eating doubly local. The package has traditional sides such as green bean casserole and stuffing (sage and sourdough), as well as rolls and sweet potato pie. Orders must be placed by Sunday, Nov. 20.
Ludivine. One of the easiest ways to cook a turkey so that it’s consistent throughout is spatchcocking, and Ludivine has just what you need to practice. Their take-and-bake package includes turkey, green bean casserole, stuffing, pumpkin pie and more. For an upcharge, you can add a bottle of pinot noir and bubbles. Orders must be placed by Sunday, Nov. 20.
Ned’s Starlite Lounge. The North May restaurant has an a la carte to-go menu for the holiday, with a choice of turkey or beef tenderloin. The menu includes gravy, dressing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes and rolls. Orders must be placed by Tuesday, Nov. 22.
Scratch – Paseo. James Beard Award-nominee Chef Zach Hutton has a very limited number of Thanksgiving dinner packages available. The 13-to-16-pound birds come with dressing, mashed potatoes, collard greens, pumpkin pie and more. Everything is sourced locally, and the meal feeds 4-6 people.
