Thanksgiving 2017, restaurants open on Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving foodCooking a Thanksgiving dinner takes a lot of work — not only does the bird take several hours to get fully cooked, but preparing all of the side dishes and desserts can extend the preparations into the night before the holiday.

Even asking guests to bring dishes or going all potluck doesn’t free you from having to do the dishes and clean up afterward.

That’s what can make going to a restaurant for Thanksgiving so appealing by contrast.

You might have to make reservations well in advance but that’s the full extent of what you’ll have to do if you go out to eat instead of host a Thanksgiving dinner.
