Mix and match your own Soul & Smoke Thanksgiving spread: keep it classic with roasted turkey breast, green bean casserole, herb stuffing and cranberry sauce, or opt for Cajun-smoked turkey breast, collard greens and mac and cheese for a southern twist. Plus, you have the option to donate toward the restaurant's efforts to feed families in need this Thanksgiving if you feel like sharing in the spirit of the season. Various prices; order via Tock by November 23; pick up November 24–25 in Evanston or November 24 in West Loop and Northbrook.
If last year's smaller-than-usual Thanksgiving hasn't left you itching to cook an elaborate spread this time around, you can let out a sigh of relief—the best restaurants in Chicago are here with takeout Thanksgiving dinner packages for a low-stress holiday feast. Whether you're looking for a traditional turkey-and-potatoes dinner, something meat-free or an extra-luxe menu from a Michelin-starred Chicago restaurant, you'll find loads of festive options that will take all the brining, basting, chopping, peeling and baking-related responsibilities off your plate. FYI: Many of these spots require you to reserve your meal (relatively) early in the month, so be sure to get your orders in ASAP!
