From pub classics to plant-based parties, these places offer deals for dining and dinner
Thanksgiving weekend 2021 is a little more open than last year. Toronto Public Health officials advise that masks without masks with people from different households be kept small, and hosts ask participants for vaccination status.
But great takeaway specials are still offered at many of the city’s restaurants and grocers. If you did not get it to pre-order a party in a place with a strict deadline, do not fear: this is a list of 10 restaurants and bakeries that make Thanksgiving dinners for dining and takeaway. We have specified pick-up dates and cases where pre-orders require notice.
