From entire dinners with all the fixings to desserts (pie, so much pie) and even breakfast, Central Ohio restaurants are easing the Thanksgiving cooking burden.

While this annual list normally highlights spots open on Thanksgiving day, this year we’re focused on eateries offering pre-order, take-home options for a more COVID-safe celebration.

An oven and a basic knack for following instructions and a Thanksgiving feast is not far away. Be sure to check those dates – some pre-order deadlines are rapidly approaching, but there are plenty of options to score a last-minute dinner.

As with all things this year, options and plans can change quickly. Be sure to check in directly with each establishment for the most up-to-date details.

Now raise a turkey leg and a glass of wine to a safe (and small) Thanksgiving celebration!
