For Thanks­giv­ing, you want op­tions. And turkey. Or maybe mush­room lentil loaf.

If whip­ping up a ma­jor meal from scratch just isn’t in the cards this year, well, then, we’re here to help. Or, rather, some restau­rants will be there to help.

Whether you want to let the pro­fes­sion­als do all the cook­ing, dec­o­rat­ing and serv­ing at a restau­rant, pick up some­thing de­li­cious to eat at home, or have your turkey din­ner with all the fix­ings de­liv­ered straight to your door, there’s a place will­ing to pro­vide. Here are some op­tions for eat­ing well on Thanks­giv­ing Day with­out all the stress.

Cit­i­zen Rail has a four­course menu fea­tur­ing turkey roulade, lamb and mar­row meat pie and, as an add-on, 66-day dryaged steaks. (Sixty-six days is how long it took the Mayflower to cross the At­lantic. They’re re­ally think­ing about this.) $75/
