Thanksgiving Take Outs That We Love in LA

COVID may be restricting gatherings but there’s still ways for you to celebrate safely. If you are choosing to have a small gathering, don’t add stress with the heavy hours required to prep those traditional goodies. Take it easy this year and order out! You definitely deserve it. We recognize that Thanksgiving Take Out is not the norm, so we thought it would be helpful to list out some of our favorite spots! 

Manuela in Arts District Downtown Los Angeles

They’ve hooked you up with a family-style supper for just two people, making it an intimate feast. You can go for the Smoked Heritage Turkey & Dark Meat Confit or opt for the Grape Must And Honey Glazed Col. Newsom’s Preacher Ham. Vegans are also covered, with the Wild Mushroom & Leek Rye Pot Pie. 

The sidings for the Thanksgiving 2020 takeout range from Cranberry compote to Smoked chicken sausage stuffing, and you get to top off the meal with a sumptuous Pumpkin Pie for dessert. 

Jame Enoteca & Ospi in El Segundo, Venice

With these two restaurants, you can order a complete feast, or simply go for the turkey, sides or desserts for your Thanksgiving takeout. The Whole Mary’s turkey that’s to be the highlight of the dinner, sides like Kuri squash toasts and Yukon Gold potato puree – you’ll get the same options from the sister restaurants. For the pie options, there are the likes of Meyer lemon and Pumpkin, and you can even have some fresh whipped cream added onto it. 

Joan’s On Third

With the oven roasted turkey from Joan’s On 3rd, plus the numerous side dishes from their Thanksgiving takeout menu, hors d’oeuvres, to dessert options, you get to provide your family with their favorite delicacies for the special day.

FIG Restaurant at Fairmont Miramar Hotel and Bungalows

The Thanksgiving Feast To-Go menu from FIG serves 8-10 people – just remember to take all the COVID health precautions before inviting the group of friends and family over. Complete with the Molasses, Sage & Rosemary Brined Mary’s Turkey, pie options like pumpkin or warm apple, to additions like Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Winter Spiced Marshmallows and Almonds, you get to have the dish that will meet your particular needs. These are also available à la carte.

Angelini Osteria

The Italian restaurant that has been serving LA residents since 2001, with Gino Angelini’s signature dishes making it a local favourite. For this Thanksgiving, you can go for his renowned velvety Butternut Squash Lasagne, or pick from any of the wide selections on the Large Tray menu section of the restaurant’s site.


The Thanksgiving takeout turkeys available on menu have been raised exclusively for Eataly, being sourced from two small scale farms. The rearing process is humane, and follows a special diet, with the end result being a quality and flavour-rich meal brought straight to your Thanksgiving Table. In case you don’t want a whole turkey, there are smaller cuttings available for those with small gatherings. 


While the window for pre-orders for Huckleberry’s Thanksgiving Catering Menu was closed on November 19th,  the restaurant has a delicious selection of pies, breads and baked goods available on Wednesday the 25th – though this will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Even though they’re sold out of the turkey, you still have a range of fresh pastries and baked treats to pick from that locals absolutely love. 

Shutters On The Beach

The Turkey day menus from Shutters on the Beach can be scaled from a one-person meal to a full-on dinner party. The gourmet kitchen delivers culinary delights from the slow roasted boneless Mary’s Farm organic turkey for the Thanksgiving takeout, appetizer choices like Weiser Farms butternut squash soup, to desserts such as pumpkin pecan cheesecake and rustic apple pie.

So don’t let the COVID pandemic dampen your holiday. Get your Thanksgiving to-go this season. These restaurants have something for everyone, and you will be in a position to enjoy the dinner prepared by the pros, from the comfort and safety of your home.
