Put down the potato peeler and the turkey baster — we’ve got you covered.

We’ve found dozens of local restaurants where you can sit down or take out a decadent Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings. Think deep-fried turkeys, truffle whipped potatoes, and pumpkin cheesecake. Prices, reservation times, and takeout policies vary by restaurant, so be sure to check them out before you solidify your Turkey Day plans.


THE BEEHIVE A three-course Thanksgiving feast at this industrial haunt near the South End doesn’t just serve up festive plates — including turkey with a sage and rosemary gravy, mushroom risotto, and lobster and pumpkin bisque — but also live music. 541 Tremont St. 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Prix-fixe $80, or $25 for children 10 and younger. 617-423-0069. beehiveboston.com.


BISTRO DU MIDI If you’re not partial to traditional Thanksgiving fare, this French restaurant near Boston Common may fit the bill.

DAVIO’S Even though it’s a steakhouse, Davio’s (which has several regional locations) can still whip up a mean turkey. This $75 dinner is dine-in or to-go, and sides include cranberry apple chutney, glazed carrots, and challah bread herb stuffing. The best part? They also prepare “tomorrow’s turkey sandwich” for you to take home for $13, complete with stuffing, chutney, and gravy. Various locations. 11 a.m.-8 p.m. for dine-in; take-out orders must be placed by Nov. 23. Prix-fixe $75. davios.com.

DEUXAVE This upscale, three-course Thanksgiving feast has the expected — pumpkin and lobster bisque, white truffled macaroni and cheese, pumpkin cheesecake — and the unexpected, like the caviar, or the “turducken” (a chicken inside a duck inside a turkey). For an additional $75, you can also get a wine pairing. 371 Commonwealth Ave. Noon-8 p.m. Prix-fixe $125. 617-517-5915 deuxave.com.


ENCORE BOSTON HARBOR Three opulent restaurants in the Encore Boston Harbor are dishing up three separate Thanksgiving meals, all by different chefs.

Times vary by restaurant. Prix-fixe $31-85. 857-770-7000. encorebostonharbor.com.
