This year, four of the city’s best restaurants want to make your family’s meal one to remember

Cooking a turkey and preparing a Thanksgiving feast is no easy feat.

This Thanksgiving (Oct. 11), let some of the city’s best restaurants take care of your family dinner, with one of these four exceptional Thanksgiving dinner bundles.

Casa La Palma

Casa La Palma’s intimate Thanksgiving for two ($110) features a Harriston Capon Chicken that can be prepared in two ways. The Crown is sage- and birch syrup–brined and ready to roast, and the Chicken Leg Involtini comes stuffed with mushrooms and Swiss chard. Enjoy either with classic gravy, truffled 60/40 mashed potatoes and delicata squash and Brussels sprouts tossed with lardons, rosemary and late harvest apple vinegar. Finish your feast with a pumpkin cheesecake with a crunchy pizzelle crust, drizzled in olive oil and sea salt. This bundle can be ordered until Oct. 6 and pickup starts 
Oct. 9 from 12 to 3 p.m.


Eataly’s multi-course meal begins with a mixed green salad, house-made gnocchi and a large charcuterie of chef-selected artisanal cured meats and cheeses from Italy and Canada. The main course is a maple-brined and roasted turkey breast and traditional sage stuffing, paired with buttery mashed potatoes and roasted broccoli rabe. Espresso-soaked tiramisù replaces traditional pumpkin pie for dessert. Serve it alongside regional Italian wine or craft beer from Birroteca by Indie Alehouse for an additional fee. The meal costs $185 and is available for pre-order until Oct. 7 for in-store pickup from Oct. 8 to 10.


Toca’s Thanksgiving bundle by executive chef Paul Shewchuk includes roasted butternut and acorn squash bisque and your choice of seasonal salad and a main course of Ontario free-range turkey served with apple and sage stuffing, pan gravy and cranberry sauce paired with buttermilk whipped potato purée, Brussels sprouts with mushroom umami dressing and maple-roasted vegetables. For dessert, dive into an apple pie served with bourbon whipped cream and caramel sauce. Dinners can feed up to four guests for $325 or six to eight guests for $450. Orders must be made by Oct. 5 on Tock and are available for pickup between 2 and 5 p.m. on Oct. 10.

The Lakeview

Take the wait time out of your Thanksgiving dinner with a deep-fried turkey meal from the Lakeview, available for in-person dining or by pre-order to enjoy at home. The Lakeview’s full-sized deep-fried turkey dinner comes served with mashed potatoes, roasted root vegetables, peas, house-made stuffing, gravy and cranberry sauce. A vegetarian Tofurkey option with mushroom gravy is also available. This Thanksgiving feast serves between six and eight people and costs $175. A whole apple pie can be added for an additional $35.
