Maybe you’re opting not to spend a whole day sweating over the stove this Thanksgiving. Perhaps you’re interested in showing your gratitude to local chefs and restaurant staff for the holiday. Or maybe you’re just short on time and looking for a quick fix. Here are just a few ways to enjoy a delicious Thanksgiving meal that you didn’t cook:
Pick up pie from Local Jones or freshly baked rolls from The Greenwich. Skip the bird and opt for a beef wellington main course courtesy of Restaurant Olivia. Or go big and shell out for a $325 family-sized full turkey dinner from Urban Farmer, complete with a 15-pound honey-glazed turkey, salads, baked yams, and pumpkin pie. All you have to do is place your order and pick it up from any of these restaurants offering takeout.
Want to skip the mess altogether? Take advantage of a turkey dinner elevated beyond your cooking capabilities when you make a reservation at restaurants like Citizen Rail, Panzano, and Woodie Fisher Kitchen + Bar that are offering multi-course, prix-fixe meals with all the traditional holiday fixin’s and way more.
Take a Trip
Looking to really shake things up? Why not get out of town! Estes Park, Boulder, Telluride, Aspen — these boutiquey tourist towns have delicious holiday dining specials that can be paired with hiking, skiing, sightseeing, and more to make it a Thanksgiving to remember.
Keep It Casual
Who needs a whole turkey dinner when you can get all the savory satisfaction you need between two ciabatta buns? A Thanksgiving sandwich usually contains all the best components of Thanksgiving dinner — turkey, stuffing, and cranberries — but none of the stress of a multi-course meal. Here’s where to find some around Denver.
