November 22 (THURSDAY!) is Thanksgiving, the day we give thanks for all the good things in life by filling our tummies with copious amounts of food. (And then we nap!) There’s only one holiday conundrum we face every year—where are we going to indulge? The conventional way to celebrate is to cook up a storm at home and serve it up like a Norman Rockwell painting. But more and more Angelinos are discovering the pleasure, convenience and deliciousness that comes with a restaurant-prepared feast, which FYI, is in abundance around Marina del Rey. Whether you go for the traditional turkey/stuffing/sweet potato combo, a plant-based masterpiece or something in between—the Thanksgiving goodies you crave are all within reach.

Once you choose, get your reservations (or your order for pickups!) soon… the holiday is right around the corner and the best spots are filling up fast. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
