From a traditional bird with all the trimmings, to a Cajun-inspired holiday meal and a Thanksgiving dinner in Paris, here are a few standout ways to celebrate Thanksgiving away from home.

Chicago: Thanksgiving at Booth One

Late last year, restaurateur Rich Melman launched this modern American eatery as an homage to the legendary Chicago restaurant, The Pump Room. (The restaurant is named after The Pump Room’s iconic VIP table.) This year, Booth One is getting into the Thanksgiving spirit with a luxurious prix fixe menu that includes both holiday classics and surprising touches.

The meal begins with first course options like butternut squash veloute with smoked bacon and chestnuts or a fall salad with little gem lettuce, black currants, and hazelnut vinaigrette. For the entrée, diners can go traditional (herb-roasted heritage turkey) or nouveau (beef Wellington or fluke with silky potatoes). All entrees can be paired with family-style platters of Brussels sprouts and roasted delicata squash. In addition to traditional pecan and pumpkin pies, the meal will wrap up with a warm pear and almond tart. 1301 N State Pkwy; 312-649-0535.
