20 great options to gobble up turkey, stuffing, and loads of tryptophan

Thanksgiving is on November 22 and for those who would rather not toil away in the kitchen, many Chicago restaurants will be open and ready to accommodate. Leave the hard work to somebody else by sitting back and digging into holiday prix fixe menus, decadent buffet spreads, family-style feasts, and more. After all, not having to do the dishes is a wonderful thing to be thankful for.
