Ann Arbor Thanksgiving To Go and Dine In options

These Ann Arbor Thanksgiving To Go Feasts Will Save Your Holiday

These Ann Arbor Thanksgiving Take Out options are perfect for families spending the holiday alone this year.

In the 24 years my husband and I have been married, I think we’ve only had Thanksgiving dinnaer at home three times. We hosted family twice and a Thanksgiving morning illness kept us home once. The two times I hosted my dad made the turkey and when my husband was sick I was able to scrounge up some chicken fingers out of the freezer.

This year, I have decided to take on the turkey and a few key sides, but am thinking fo supplementing with some a la carte items – especially the gravy and the ones we don’t have a family favorite recipe. My family is currently debating which are our must-have sides. My daughter asked for stuffing and I’ve already gotten their recipe from my parents. My husband and I quickly settled on his mom’s corn pudding (which I have the recipe for).

No Information Yet

In past years I have seen Thanksgiving packages at local grocery stores like Meijer and Kroger. As of November 1, I did not find details for any of these packages. While they typically offer them, with the added strain on grocery stores in 2020, they may not offer them this year.

I have also heard of other restaurants that have offered Thanksgiving to go in the past and have not listed details yet. As more options are announced, we will keep this list updated

Thanksgiving Dinner To Go By the Plate

There are several restaurants offering dinner by the plate. These are great options for a single parent, a couple, or to send to a relative who lives alone. Thanksgiving by the plate is also a good option if you are having a socially distant outdoor gathering to minimize food sharing.

Ann Arbor Thanksgiving Dine-In

On November 15, Governor Whitmer announced new regulations stopping indoor dining (and other restrictions) for 3 weeks starting November 18. This includes Thanksgiving, so these options are no longer available.

For customers with Thanksgiving Day Reservations, Weber’s is allowing them to order carry-out at the time of their reservation. If There may still be reservation slots open to take advantage of Thanksgiving Day carryout.

Previously, we had also had Gandy Dancer and Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse offering in person dining. I did not see any details on how they are handling those reservations. if you had one, I suggest contacting the restaurant directly.
