What to Know
- Thanksgiving is Thursday, Nov. 25
- Several spots will offer dine-in seating, with pick-up available at some restaurants, too
- Deep-fried turkeys, mashed potatoes, holiday pies, and full meals for multiple people are all on the menu, depending on the restaurant you choose
Dining out at a favorite spot, stopping by a pal's place for a Friendsgiving feast, or picking up a turkey, and your favorite sides, for your own table: There are chow-down choices to be made when Thanksgiving draws near.
Those choices are made simpler by the fact that suppers, both of the dine-in variety and those you can eat at home, abound around our area. Several terrific eateries will have decadent dinners, and sometimes a la carte dishes, to peruse.
But if you're planning to dine at your own address? Best place your order well ahead of November's fourth Thursday, and get the specifics on pick-up times, details, and such.

Little Dom's in Los Feliz has a Deep-Fried Turkey for pick-up, with gravy, that should feed around 6 to 8 people.

Oh yes: And the 21+ person picking up the bird can sip a complimentary spiked coffee while they wait.
LOAM at the Ace Hotel in DTLA is making a Confit and Smoked Turkey, complete with stuffing (it's got a sage vibe), a root veg smash, cranberry sauce, and the all-important turkey au jus. The three-course Thanksgiving Pre-Fixe menu, available for dine-in or take-home, is $89 per person.

1 Pico at Shutters on the Beach is going the dine-in route, with tantalizing twists on tradition like Lobster Tartine, Braised Short Rib, and Apple Pie Bites. There are vegan dishes, too.

The Front Yard at The Garland will have indoor and patio seating on Thanksgiving, and a turkey that has a caliente character: The centerpiece dish is chipotle-smoked, meaning there'll be some bite with this bird.

Delilah in West Hollywood will have your celebratory supper to-go, a mondo meal meant to serve four people.

The price? It's $275.
SLAB on West Third is also putting together a savor-in-your-own-digs dinner, and you can probably guess (if you know this eatery) that BBQ will be involved.
