Atlanta Thanksgiving Options

Gobble gobble, peeps. It's almost turkey time. We're doing the traditional family thing but if you're feeling like you don't want to spend the whole day in the kitchen, other options abound. Here's a roundup of a few Thanksgiving options from local restaurants:

Ted's Montana Grill

Ted’s Montana Grill will be serving up a three-course classic turkey meal. The meal starts with a side salad or a cup of creamy tomato soup or Karen’s “Flying-D” Bison Chili, followed by oven-roasted turkey and gravy with garlic mashed potatoes, herb dressing, country-style green beans, “Aunt Fannie’s” squash casserole and cranberry sauce, and Apple Pecan Crisp. Ted’s Thanksgiving meal is $23 per person.

Star Provisions

The take-home menu includes everything you could want for an upscale holiday meal. Choose from multiple "happy turkey" options (that means free-range, organic, antiboitic free) including Eberly turkeys, Bell & Evans turkeys or Heritage turkeys raised by Good Shepherd Ranch in Lindsborg, Kansas. Side options include cranberry orange relish, Yukon gold potato puree, buttered rutabaga, braised local collard greens, roasted root vegetables, and yeast rolls. Orders must be placed in advance in-store or by calling 404.365.0410.

Thumbs Up Diner

The five local outposts will be selling Lou’s legendary Spiral Cut Maple Smoked Ham and Whole Maple Smoked Turkey, prices starting at $45. Each weighing in around twelve pounds, you can feed approximately ten.

Hosting T-day for the first time? Never fear, Atlanta's own Angry Chef, Rosebud's Ron Eyester is teaching a Thanksgiving cooking class at the Cook’s Warehouse in Midtown from 7-9 on Nov. 14. The class will feature Thanksgiving dishes such as house-made pickled vegetables, morning-after turkey chowder, Rosebud’s own mac & cheese, brioche herb stuffing and Mexican Coke braised local greens with smoked ham bone. And it's for a good cause - proceeds go to the Atlanta Community Food Bank so the less fortunate can get into the holiday spirit, too. The class is $55.00. Go to for more info.

Yum, now I'm craving turkey and cranberry sauce! It'll be here before you know it, so plan now!
