For some, Thanksgiving is the time to break out their inner Food Network star. For others, not so much. No shame in the take-out game.
Whether you want to have the home-style vibe without the prep, or you would rather enjoy a night on the town, these local eateries are ready for turkey time.
Affäre, 1911 Main St., Kansas City, MO | This German farm-to-table will offer its special three-course menu for dine-in — with options like roasted venison with juniper demi-glace and celery root-pear soup — or their take on a classic turkey dinner to-go for pickup on Wednesday, Nov. 22.
Acre, 6325 Lewis St., Parkville, MO | This modern Midwestern restaurant knows a thing or two about hospitality, and will have items like blistered green beans, house-made rolls, and roasted sweet potatoes for pickup with cooking and reheating instructions.
