Not every Thanksgiving has to involve the headache of dinner prep and entertaining combined with screaming fights over politics and Netflix show spoilers. Focus on spending quality time with family and friends by heading to one of these Chicago restaurants with chefs preparing the best Thanksgiving Day spreads (with varying degrees of traditionalism) on November 22. The best part? No dirty dishes means a longer nap time.
Pretend you’re a 1950s celebrity by dining on Thanksgiving favorites in a giant booth Frank Sinatra–style this holiday season. The upscale Gold Coast haunt with tuxedoed servers is rolling out a bountiful prix-fixe Thanksgiving dinner menu filled with indulgences like Charcuterie, Butternut Squash Veloute with smoked bacon and chestnuts, Herb-Roasted Heritage Turkey, Beef Wellington, and from-scratch desserts like Pecan Pie and a Warm Pear and Almond Tart. ( $55; reservations required.)
