Thanksgiving is going to be a little different this year. With travel and large, indoor gatherings ill-advised due the pandemic, many people are sticking close to home for the holidays and seeking ways to celebrate Thanksgiving with just their immediate family or quarantine bubble. This likely includes bringing the turkey-filled feast outdoors for a socially distant Thanksgiving on the front porch or back patio.
Restaurants and bakeries across Atlanta are stepping up in a major way this year offering fully prepared turkey dinners with all the trimmings, fresh-baked breads, plenty of holiday side dishes, and pumpkin, pecan, and apple pies for dessert. Below, Eater has compiled a guide to Thanksgiving foods and feasts to order from Atlanta restaurants and bakeries.
