Let These Restaurants Do The Work This Thanksgiving

By: Aaron B. Cohen | November 10, 2021

Let’s face it. While Thanksgiving dinner may be the greatest feast of the year, the hours of preparation and cleanup tend to leave some dreading the work necessary to make it all happen. Fear not! Here in Metro Detroit, some of the area’s best restaurants take on the challenge so you don’t have to. Shake up the tradition this year and experience a stress-free holiday where your only concern is making room for dessert.

Mario’s

Midtown Detroit’s classic Italian mainstay will offer a full dine-in Thanksgiving feast for $135/person. Mario’s hook it up with turkey and all the fixings, served by their talented, tuxedo-clad waitstaff. Enjoy a fabulous wine selection while you toast to friends and family at an iconic Detroit venue.

Fishbones

Laissez les bon temps rouler – let the good times roll! While Fishbone’s’ three locations won’t be serving up a traditional Thanksgiving meal, the New Orleans-inspired menu provides a taste of Thanksgiving in the Gulf. Enjoy their delicious brunch and dinner selection that includes fresh seafood and even sushi. While the flavors may differ from your past Thanksgiving experiences, you’ll be left equally satisfied, and glad to have tried something new.

Fogo de Chão

Fogo de Chão adds its own Brazilian twist to the classic American meal. Skewered meats are sliced fresh tableside and keep coming throughout the meal. This year, kids under the age of six eat free, while kids between seven and 12 get half off their meals.

The Whitney

The Whitney’s traditional Thanksgiving dinner will come complete with “leftovers” for the full holiday experience. That’s right, extra Thanksgiving dinner to take home. Enjoy dining in one of Detroit’s most timeless settings while you give thanks for the meal in front of you… and the cold turkey sandwich you’ll be eating for lunch the next day.

Take-Out

If you’d prefer to stay in the comfort of your own home, these restaurants provide exceptional take-out meals that include everything you’d expect from Thanksgiving dinner, plus some added flair.
