Thanksgiving To-Go

For those of us who love to eat with friends and family for Thanksgiving dinner but don’t love to cook, the options are takeout, or eat out. Both are wonderful holiday choices, and if you haven’t tried either—be careful. You just might be hooked once you do.

Today, we focus on the amazing to-go meals available. But you need to order soon because these are in high demand.

Feed small or large dinner party: Bogart’s Bar & Grille

This is the third year for Thanksgiving To Go from Rapoport’s Restaurant Group. It’s a popular home-style, multi-course meal.

For the first course, choose one starter: baby spinach salad, chopped salad, butternut squash bisque or split pea soup. Slow-roasted turkey is the main course, with all the trimmings—including green beans, glazed carrots, mashed sweet potatoes, whipped potatoes, herb stuffing, sage gravy and cranberry relish. For dessert, choose from apple pie, pecan pie or pumpkin pie.

The dinner is available in two sizes: one feeds 4-6 people and costs $149.95; the other for up to 12 people costs $264.95. A la carte add-ons are also available.

All orders must be placed by Nov. 23 at 3 p.m. Pickup will be at Bogart’s Bar & Grille at the Cinemark Palace 20 (3200 Airport Road) on Nov. 25 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and on Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 26) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. To place your order, call 561/826-1791.

Organic turkey dinner and trimmings: Whole Foods Market

The list of available Thanksgiving dishes to-go from Whole Foods Market is too long to print, but suffice to say it includes everything from a roasted turkey breast dinner for four ($69.99) to an organic turkey dinner package ($149.99) that serves 4-8 to the deluxe dinner package that serves the extended family ($229.99).  Order online or in-store through Nov. 22 for these meals, which must be picked up by Nov. 26.
