Restaurants Offering Thanksgiving Meals

By: Megan Robinson

Thanksgiving, a time to express gratitude and thanks, is also an occasion where a lot of time and energy goes into cooking numerous dishes to feed your family. This can be stressful for some, and others may simply not have the time to prepare such a large meal.

So why not let someone else cook it for you? This article gives you five Long Island eateries that are offering dinner services for Thanksgiving, as well as catering for those who still want to eat in the comfort of their own home.
