Best Thanksgiving takeout options in the D.C. area
D.C.'s best restaurants offer Thanksgiving to-go — whether you want a full feast or just sides and pies.
Why it matters: Even expert hosts need a little holiday help.
State of play: Takeout options are wonderfully diverse around D.C., so you'll find fun Mexican American or vegan feasts along with the classics.
Be smart: Secure orders sooner rather than later, check deadlines, and plan around pickup/delivery dates and times (they vary widely).
