Despite the rising costs of Thanksgiving, the turkey-and-potato show must go on, and a handful of L.A. restaurants have risen to the task of helping Angelenos celebrate our first post-vaccine Turkey Day. Take advantage of our ability to go outside, socialize more freely this Thanksgiving and enjoy an out-of-the-house holiday feast at a cozy restaurant—no dishes or kitchen clean up required. (For those who’d rather snuggle up at home, plenty of restaurants have continued their takeout Thanksgiving offerings from last year).
Note: Restaurants are listed in order of least to most expensive per head.
Due to new restrictions across both the city and county, all restaurants in the City of L.A. will be required to ask patrons for proof of vaccination to dine indoors starting November 4. This does not apply to cities outside the border like Beverly Hills and Glendale, but does apply to West Hollywood, which has its own similar ordinance. If the geography versus vaccine rules aren’t crystal clear to you, you’re not alone. Here’s the full story on what you need to know about city versus county guidelines.
