Cuisine & Wine Bistro
Add some European flair to your Thanksgiving this year by ordering from the family-owned French wine bar Cuisine & Wine Bistro. Its Thanksgiving dishes to-go include a full-sized quiche that can feed up to 12 people; beef, lobster, or salmon Wellingtons; and more. While wine isn’t available to-go, the restaurant's expert sommelier Killian Buschtetz recommends a cabernet sauvignon to complement the heavy meal. Orders can be picked up the day before Thanksgiving and stored in the fridge until it’s feasting time.
At this New York-style deli, find both dine-in or take-out Thanksgiving meals. The restaurant serves turkey breast with stuffing and cranberry relish, mashed potatoes, string beans, candied yams, freshly baked rolls, and homemade apple or pumpkin pie every Thanksgiving from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. There is also catering available, with homestyle dishes that are made on the same day as your pickup to ensure freshness.
While the main course on Thanksgiving usually leaves you feeling stuffed, save some room for one of Pie Snob's delectable fall pies. There are 17 pies on its November menu, including pumpkin, apple crumb, cherry crumb, bourbon pecan, and caramel apple. Orders will be taken through Mon., Nov. 13, or until they have reached maximum capacity.
