Frontdoors Five: Best Thanksgiving Dinner Options — No Cooking Required

Posted By on November 21, 2017

Making Thanksgiving dinner is hard — timing your pies, turkeys and everything else is nearly impossible — which is why we will not judge if you’re considering skipping it altogether. However, we are happy to provide a few tastier options, whether you’re ready to sit down at a restaurant and enjoy a full meal, want to pick something up to go (maybe even claiming you made it yourself) or just need help with a few sides, we’ve got you covered.

1. Market by Jennifer

It really doesn’t get much easier than Market by Jennifer’s curbside Thanksgiving catering. Look forward to a whole roasted turkey, bread stuffing, herb whipped potatoes, roasted sweet potatoes, haricot vert with sliced almonds, Arizona honey glazed carrots, a simple green salad, a fresh baked bread board and a pecan or pumpkin pie — all perfectly cooked for you and delivered to your car.

2. Hearth ’61 at Mountain Shadows

Mountain Shadows is serving up brunch and a traditional holiday dinner for Thanksgiving. The dinner will include traditional holiday dishes like turkey, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie as well as old favorites with a twist — like the butternut squash soup with sage brioche croutons, chorizo cornbread stuffing and cranberry orange relish.

3. Tomaso’s

If you’re someone who’s looking to add a little pasta to your Thanksgiving feast, Tomaso’s is the place for you. While you’ll still enjoy entrée options like traditional turkey and stuffing — guests will also indulge in either the ricotta and spinach ravioli paired with a butter-sage sauce or the savory rigatoni with spare rib and black truffle ragù, along with a soup and salad. For those not looking for the full Thanksgiving feast, Tomaso’s will also offer its regular menu.

4. Weft & Warp Art Bar at The Andaz

Few places can perfectly capture the tastes of Thanksgiving while delivering a meal that’s completely unexpected like Weft & Warp. The mesquite hot smoked turkey with a honey-chipotle glaze, Sonoran wheat berry risotto, blue cornbread stuffing with chorizo and grilled peppers and grilled acorn squash with cotija cheese perfectly capture holiday flavors with Arizona influence and their restaurant is cozy enough to make you feel right at home.

5. Dominick’s Steakhouse

While it’s hard to imagine going to Dominick’s and not ordering a steak, we have it on good authority that their turkey is pretty incredible — plus it’s paired with classics like whipped truffle potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy and pumpkin woopie pie. But of course, if you can’t resist your regular steak, their full menu will be available as well.
