Thanksgiving To Go

Thanksgiving is – usually – the ultimate in family togetherness. Dusting off your grandmother’s recipes, toiling away in the kitchen, and finally gathering around a table to feast with those you love. 2020 is having none of that, of course, so maybe it’s time to ease off. A smaller gathering and a smaller burden might be the way to go this year. Let someone else cook, and actually enjoy the day (for once). Here are some of the local restaurants and caterers that will lend you a helping hand.

Dry Creek Kitchen (Healdsburg)

Their Thanksgiving to Go menu includes a salad and Dungeness crab bisque to start, a ready-to-bake Diestel turkey breast as a main, sweet potato shepherd’s pie, traditional stuffing, orange cranberry sauce and gravy for sides and a scrumptious pumpkin cheesecake for dessert.

  • Order online or call 707-431-0330 no later than Nov 19th at 5pm
  • Serves 4-6 ppl, $250

El Dorado Kitchen (Sonoma)

Their Thanksgiving Takeaway Feast includes a three-course menu – a salad, your choice of a roasted free-range turkey or pan roasted salmon (both with all the sides and fixings) and lastly an apple cranberry streusel with vanilla ice cream.

  • Order by Friday November 20th at 5pm
  • Pickup Thanksgiving Day between 9am-noon

Girl and the Fig – (Sonoma)

You can also order premade cocktails or their special wine three pack, for the ultimate in convenience.

  • Order before November 22nd
  • Prices vary
  • Each box serves four people

Oliver’s Market – Multiple Locations

Oliver’s Market Thanksgiving dinner will include roasted turkey, traditional stuffing, mashed potatoes, vegetable medley, cranberry sauce, gravy, pull-apart rolls and a pie. Everything pre-cooked, but will need to go in the oven for a couple of hours to warm up. You can also order a la carte if you are not ready to commit to a full preset meal – and extra pies (yes please!) start at $12.99.

● Order online for store pickup

● Complete Holiday Dinner for 6 to 8 ppl > from $129.99

Whole Foods – Multiple Locations

Whole Foods, as you can imagine, has a few different ways to go. Their “Festive Feast” serves 12 and has a turkey and a ham, plus all the extras. There are also smaller (or just more turkey-centric/organic) options that will serve 4-12. They also still have their regular dinners on offer, so you can skip the turkey entirely if that’s what you’d prefer.

  • Place orders at least 48 hours ahead of time
  • Thanksgiving meals are available from November 19th-26th
  • Prices range from $79.99 – $279.99

Cattlemens Steakhouse

If you really don’t feel like a turkey dinner, Cattlemen’s Steakhouse will do you something different. They have options from Sirloin steak and Chicken, to Ribs and Teryaki. Their Family Meals start at $49.95 and go from there.

  • Please provide 24-hour notice for all family meal packages
  • Free delivery when you order more than $250 within 15miles

2020 has thrown everybody its fair share of changes. Maybe it’s time to make some positive changes of your own and embrace a Thanksgiving that doesn’t involve cooking all day long while everyone else watches football in the other room. This holiday could be – dare we say it? – relaxing. Maybe even fun!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone, no matter how you celebrate it.
