Get Your Thanksgiving Dinner on 17th Ave

There’s nothing quite like the combination of a perfectly roasted turkey paired with fluffy mashed potatoes doused in gravy, and all your favourite sides. But cooking a 20 pound bird in tandem with dishes ranging from brussel sprouts and baked carrots, to stuffing and pumpkin pie can be exhausting. Rather than spending your holiday sweating over an oven, order a pre-cooked dinner from this list of 17th Ave restaurants, and spend your holidays the way they are meant to be enjoyed – with friends, family and a cocktail.
