One of the biggest food holidays of the year is coming, and everyone should be prepared. For those who are hosting a big Thanksgiving dinner and need some help — or for guests who just want to impress — there are many fantastic options around the city that are currently taking prepared food requests. Deadlines for final orders vary by location, but many can accommodate customers right up until November 28 with a variety of mains, desserts, and sides — good news for procrastinators. (Plus, don’t forget about the restaurants that are open Thanksgiving Day for lunch or dinner.)
