If you’re going to be in Brooklyn this Thanksgiving and would rather not spend the day in the kitchen, there are plenty of local restaurants offering special Thanksgiving meals. These five establishments are either serving up Thanksgiving dinner or selling prepared food (and turkeys!) to take home with you.
Fletcher’s Brooklyn BBQ (Gowanus)
If a Thanksgiving meal that includes BBQ sauce sounds like a dream come true, then you should check out Fletcher’s. The barbecue joint offers Thanksgiving dinner packages (to be taken home, not served at the restaurant) that include smoked heritage breed turkeys and sides like collard greens, mashed potatoes, cornbread stuffing, cranberry sauce, and gravy. The meal can either be picked up at the restaurant in Gowanus or delivered to anywhere in Brooklyn or Manhattan.

The Farm on Adderley (Ditmas Park)
The Farm on Adderley, a popular American restaurant in the heart of Ditmas Park, is offering a three-course prix fixe Thanksgiving menu. Here’s the menu, which includes smoked duck, roast turkey, a vegetarian shepherd’s pie, and chocolate bread pudding. (This is also a good spot for an excellent all-vegetarian Thanksgiving meal.) The prix fixe costs $55 a person, with a children’s Thanksgiving plate available for $25. The restaurant will have five seatings between 12 and 8:30 p.m., and reservations are highly recommended.
Have a salmon brunch for Thanksgiving | Station via Facebook
Station, a European-bistro style restaurant located in Williamsburg, is putting together an epic Thanksgiving feast at $65 a person. The menu includes three courses, offering its own spin on the classics: pumpkin ginger bisque, roasted turkey with sweet potato gratin, and a pumpkin cheesecake. And there are plenty of options for you vegans as well. Station is also serving up a Thanksgiving brunch during the day, with even more specials. A reservation for brunch or dinner is highly recommended.

You can place your order online, and all orders must be picked up at Greene Grape Provisions at the time confirmed with the store.
