22 Places to Eat and Celebrate Thanksgiving in LA This Year

There’s never been a better reason not to cook.

Remember that one really bad Thanksgiving when we all announced we were never coming to a holiday dinner again? Well we didn’t actually mean it. We’d give anything to just casually roll into a dinner with friends and family (yes, even that uncle who infuriates us annually) without having to worry about…well, you know. For those who still plan to safely celebrate the holiday but no longer have the will to cook, we actually have some good news: You’re living in the right city. Despite a very tough year for restaurants big and small, dozens have released special Thanksgiving dinner menus for you to take out and take down at home. Whether you want a traditional turkey dinner with all the fixings, a few favorite sides, or some poutine and pie, our beloved restaurant community has got you covered. Here’s a solid sampling of this year’s best options:

FIG Restaurant

Santa Monica

As usual, the Fairmont Miramar’s signature FIG Restaurant is using its proximity to the fabled Santa Monica Farmer’s Market to source ingredients for its holiday feast which comes with a bevy of creative sides including Weiser Farms carrots with pickled raisins and preserved kumquats, sausage and kale dressing, and roasted sweet potatoes laced with winter-spiced marshmallows as well as an herb-brined turkey, prime rib, and pumpkin and apple pies.
