Thanksgiving at Marben Restaurant

Ten Toronto takeout options for Thanksgiving dinner

These restaurants and grocers have your Turkey Day feast covered

Thanksgiving dinner will look a little different this year for most of us. Just because we’re hosting smaller gatherings and following physical distancing recommendations, however, that doesn’t mean we have to forgo our usual Thanksgiving chow-downs (in fact, most of us need comfort food more than ever). If you feel like having someone else do the work for you, these Toronto restaurants and grocers with Thanksgiving menus are here to help you take Turkey Day to-go.
