Last week, I published my story about restaurants and specialty grocers who are offering to cook your Thanksgiving turkey, ham or whole meal — for a price.
Since then, I’ve learned of two more good offers, which you’ll see below. One is a sumptuous-sounding full-meal menu from Green Acres that offers a choice of roasted organic turkey, ham or prime rib plus lots of sides. The other is a meal from vegan restaurant Garden Grill Cafe, which will not only co0k meat-free deliciousness but also is willing to deliver it on Wednesday.
Also, stay tuned. My list of restaurants serving buffets and plated meals on Thanksgiving Day is done and in the process of being edited. I’ll try to get it online on Tuesday. Sneak preview fact: Siena Tuscan Steakhouse in the Ambassador Hotel has joined the buffet fray this year.
Here are the details on the other meals to go:
Green Acres, 8141 E. 21st St. N., 316-634-1088: Green Acres is serving three full holiday meals plus sides that serves four to six people. A dinner with an organic roasted turkey is $119, with a ham is $109 and with prime rib is $149. Available for pickup between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. Wednesday. Make reservations by Tuesday.
Garden Grill Cafe, 300 N. Main, 316-978-9213: This vegan restaurant is serving vegan Thanksgiving dishes to-go. Items can be picked up between noon and 7 p.m. Wednesday, or the restaurant will deliver between 3 and 7 p.m. The menu includes several options of dishes that serve eight, although diners can order for more or less than eight.
