For some, Thanksgiving is a day to spend hours in the kitchen, roasting the turkey, baking the pies and sharing delicious food with family and friends. For others, they want to enjoy all of the traditional Thanksgiving fare, but would prefer to have someone serve — and clean up — instead. Fortunately, we found nine restaurants in Nashville that will gladly accommodate those who want to celebrate away from home.
Monell’s is offering all of the traditional Thanksgiving dishes, including turkey, ham or skillet-fried chicken, along with numerous sides, including mashed potatoes, corn pudding, sweet potato casserole and more, along with caramel pumpkin pie for dessert. First come, first served — no reservations will be allowed.
