Original Article: "Where to Eat Thanksgiving Dinner in Chicago"

Thanksgiving is supposed to be about food and family. But between all the cooking and cleaning, the family part tends to fall by the wayside. This year, leave the grocery shopping and dishwashing to someone else. Dining out for Thanksgiving is a great way to spend more time with your loved ones, and less time in the kitchen.

These Chicago restaurants are opening their doors for Thanksgiving dinner, whether it’s a homestyle meal or decadent feast. Make your reservations now to kick off your new favorite holiday tradition.
