Where to Have Thanksgiving Dinner This Year in Los Angeles | 2023

At home! Or, out on the town! Every year there’s the eternal question: should we make Thanksgiving dinner at home? Or should we get takeout? Order our turkey from Little Dom’s, or pick one up pre-cooked from Gelson’s? Or should we make a reservation and leave the cooking and cleaning to those far less culinarily challenged than us? Say, Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica, or go old school at a steakhouse in The Valley? To help you decide this year we’ve put together a list of all of Los Angeles’s best Thanksgiving dinner options, all with last minute availability to get you, your friends, and family, out of the kitchen and into a wonderful restaurant this holiday.
