If you want to limit how much you need to cook this Thanksgiving, there are plenty of takeout options around Philadelphia.
Leave it to the professionals this year to prepare your turkey and fixings. Your meal will be delicious, and you'll be helping to support the local restaurant scene during an incredibly difficult time.
Restrictions are tightening in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, and people are encouraged to have dinner at home with only those in their household. While the holiday will be very different this year for people missing extended family and Friendsgiving parties, Nov. 26 can still be a special day filled with good food.
