Wear your eatin’ pants for the Thanksgiving Mac

Thanksgiving can be tricky when you’re away from your family. You and your friends could try to cook a turkey, but your lavish banquet may end up being turkey-flavored ramen if you don’t know how to roast a bird, even if you try following these handy Thanksgiving cooking tips. If cooking consumes time you’d rather devote to drawing handprint turkeys and watching the National Dog Show, check out this list of Brooklyn restaurants that are delivering and serving meals this Turkey Day, updated for 2015. Most require advanced orders or reservations, so be sure to call early.

One Comment

  • I’ll really never understand how we can be so morally outraged by retail opening on Thanksgiving night because “workers should be with their family” and “workers deserve that time” and yet we are perfectly fine promoting movies that come out and restaurants open on Thanksgiving. Clearly nobody works there who might rather be with family, right?
