Thanksgiving is a feast usually prepared and served in our homes. But sometimes it is really lovely to take a break from the hot kitchen and let someone else do the cooking, cleaning and moving furniture around. Drop the day-long prep for Thanksgiving and head out to one to these Long Island restaurants that are serving up a turkey dinner. This way, you can maybe enjoy a Thanksgiving run, volunteer for those in need or (gasp!) relax a little.
Just be sure to call ahead for reservations and have a happy Thanksgiving! And for more tips and activities this season, check out our Long Island Holiday Guide.
