The Best Pick-Up & Delivery Thanksgiving Dinners in Los Angeles

Novelist, screenwriter, and director Nora Ephron’s famous Thanksgiving turkey recipe was simply to salt and pepper the bird and stick it in the oven at 450 degrees and “do not do one thing to it. You don’t baste it…you might have to cover it a certain point. And you might have to drain some of the fat that comes off, but it’s all these years of endless basting for nothing, it turns out.”

Believe her or not, preparing a Thanksgiving dinner for family and friends can sometimes feel a bit like a chore, especially when you’d much rather enjoy and take part in the conversation happening in the living room. If that’s the case for you this year and you would like to taste something more inventive than your standard mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes, check out this list of restaurants and grocers who will do all the work for you: select and test the recipes, cook the meal, and (in some cases) deliver it straight to your door. Restaurants include Little Dom’s in Los Feliz, Freedman’s in Echo Park, Lawry’s in Beverly Hills, Wexler’s in Downtown, Lunetta in Santa Monica, and many more.
