Cooking on Thanksgiving always feels like complete chaos. No matter what the size of your gathering, there’s always one to many family members vying for oven space that is already taken up by a huge bird roasting for what seems like days. Wouldn’t it be better just to order in? Whether you’re into the classic bird, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, or you want to mix it up to have something a little bit different, these North Fork restaurants and caterers have all your food needs covered for turkey day.
