DC-area restaurants offer Thanksgiving meals to-go

As friends and family get creative with their Thanksgiving plans — moving away from traditional indoor gatherings  — takeout food can be the best option amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Thanksgiving takeout style solves some of the new problems surrounding an unorthodox holiday season by providing individually wrapped meals and utensils, easy and safe cleanup and the elimination of food preparations.

In preparation for this increased need for carryout Thanksgiving meals, local restaurants have bolstered their turkey-day catering options.
