Thanksgiving dinner is great in theory, when you can tuck into warm, filling favorites like turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes, but before that part, you have to cook it. Cooking your own meal is its own kind of reward, it’s true. But not for everyone.

For those of us who are less than confident in the kitchen — or just too pooped to consider cooking — there are a number of Astoria restaurants that will be serving up Thanksgiving dinner this year.

Please do be advised that if you decide to opt out of cooking this Thanksgiving, it’s wise to make reservations ASAP, because these places fill up quickly!
