Thanksgiving 2020 edition is a turkey day like no other. The typical ritual of joining friends and family for a well-intentioned exchange of platitudes and pleasantries now will be virtual, with top doctors pleading for us to #stayhome. But that doesn’t mean Thanksgiving should be canceled. Instead, we’re switching things up, taking a night off and looking forward to an afternoon of board games and day-wines. Leave the cooking to the chefs, and instead tuck into one of these tempting turkey day takeouts.

Marben

Pick up or delivery is available for Chef Chris Locke’s take on turkey day, with upscale flourishes on classic comfort food. For $39 a person, this fall bounty comes banging with Chicken Ballantine with thyme butter, Morel Mushroom and Brandy Sauce, and of course, all the stuffing and sides. Wines are also available for purchase and delivery.
