Loosen your belt: these Vancouver restaurants have turkey day covered.
Fall is a delightful time of year; we get to drink pumpkin spice lattes and eat countless apple and pumpkin pies—there is always something delicious to indulge in. Thanksgiving is a time to eat and drink until our bellies are full (stretchy pants, please!) and, of course, to reflect and be thankful.
Looking for ways to celebrate Thanksgiving in Vancouver this year? No doubt COVID is still present in our lives, but that doesn’t mean we still can’t enjoy a turkey dinner. So this Thanksgiving, order to-go or pickup or enjoy small and safe celebrations with your family and friends. This list includes both takeout and dine-in options.
