Many families who don’t have a head chef or talented cook on their team, often choose to eat out on Thanksgiving. And if you’re a part of one of those families, heck, we don’t blame you! Cooking a Thanksgiving meal, if you aren’t a fan of the kitchen, takes a lot of effort and time, so instead enjoy the time you have with your family and head to one of these high-end restaurants in Chicago for a Thanksgiving feast! 

The best part about eating out on a holiday is avoiding the set-up, clean up, and cooking. All you need to do is make sure everyone shows up on time and in good spirits! So, make the most of this Thanksgiving and dine at one of our favorite Chicago eateries
