With a worldwide outbreak on our hands, many of us are likely to find it a little difficult to feel thankful this year. But, when it comes to food, there is always much to be thankful for. Plus Thanksgiving is just around the corner (it lands on Thursday, November 26) and you know what that means – roast turkey, pumpkin pie, creamy mash, and all the other delicious things that expand your waistband. We’re also incredibly grateful that our city continues to have so much to offer. So, grab your family and friends, and get ready to devour the ten best Thanksgiving menus to try this year. By Elaine Wong

RECOMMENDED: We’re also thankful for a number of other things this season including the opening of new restaurants and cool things to do this month. But what we’d be extra thankful for is if you signed up to our newsletter right here. Thank you!
