Are you stressed about Thanksgiving approaching and either not being around your family or not in the mood to slave away in the kitchen, I wanted to take a moment and share the “Thanksgiving To Go” programs taking place at a handful of the city’s favorite restaurants.

As we get closer to the holidays, and families are scrambling to make plans, this year might be a good time to take a load off and let chefs Ian Winslade of Murphy’s, Scott Serpas of Serpas True Food or Anne Quatrano of Star Provisions do the cooking. For those still looking to master the bird at home, Village Tavern in Alpharetta will prepare many of their popular Thanksgiving sides into a la carte, table-ready options. 

Here are the following restaurants we currently are aware of that are offering Thanksgiving meals:

Star Provisions

Celebrate hassle-free this year thanks to Star Provisions. Chef-owner Anne Quatrano’s gourmet market is serving the bird and all the fixin’s to make your Thanksgiving memorable. Star Provisions will offer fresh, free-range, big breasted whole white turkeys (hormone and anti-biotic free and raised in S.C.) for $5.85/pound; Eberly (fresh, free-range, organic, hormone and anti-biotic free raised by Eberly Farms in Penn.) turkeys for $5.85/pound and $9.75/pound for bone-in; and Heritage turkeys (fresh, free-range, organic, raised by Frank Reese at Good Shepherd Ranch in Kansas) for $7.75/pound for a whole turkey. Complete the meal with generous helpings of traditional sides such as cranberry orange relish, creamed onions, sweet potato puree with mini marshmallows, braised local collard greens with house-cured ham, macaroni and cheese, yeast rolls and more.

Murphy’s Restaurant, Bakery and Wine Store

This Thanksgiving, enjoy the season and leave the cooking (and baking!) to Murphy’s. Atlanta’s staple for upscale American cuisine for more than 30 years, Murphy’s has thoughtfully crafted a Thanksgiving feast that feeds your entire family and features traditional roasted turkey breast along with savory sides such as green beans amandine, molasses mashed sweet potatoes, herbed cornbread stuffing with sausage and apples, cranberry orange relish, turkey gravy, mixed greens and butternut squash soup. And of course, Thanksgiving would not complete be without something sweet, so Murphy’s has prepared your choice of pumpkin pie, pecan pie or the signature Tollhouse pie. Also available to complement your Thanksgiving feast is a selection of fine wines from Murphy’s Wine Store, located just inside the restaurant. Prices for the “Thanksgiving to Go” feast from Murphy’s are $135, to feed a family of four, or $250, to feed a family of eight.

Serpas True Food

Take a load off this holiday season and pre-order a Thanksgiving feast from Serpas True Food. This year’s spread will include chef-owner Scott Serpas’ seasonally inspired creations specially prepared to take home to the family, with prices starting at $125 for a feast to feed four adults. A fried turkey can be added for an additional $40. A feast for eight can be had for $230, or $265 with a fried turkey. First course includes a choice of butternut squash soup with chili croutons and toasted almonds or a mixed fall green salad with cranberry chili vinaigrette, goat cheese and candied pecans. The main course includes an herb garlic roasted turkey breast with herb corn bread stuffing and a choice of three sides including maple sweet potato gratin, baked four-cheese macaroni, buttermilk whipped potatoes, braised green beans, bacon braised collard greens or zucchini, squash and sweet corn succotash. Delicious dessert options include apple or pecan pies, as well as a chocolate chunk brownie. All feasts include homemade yeast rolls.

Feasting time is a little later than usual this year, but it is fast approaching so start preparing your Thanksgiving Menus and/or figure out where you can get some tasty take-out from!
