Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to get together with family and friends and celebrate with the ones you love. The traditional feast, however, takes a lot of time to prepare and means that someone is stuck in the kitchen. If you like the idea of breaking bread with friends and family, but don’t like the idea of actually baking the bread and then cleaning up the crumbs, here are several Chicago restaurants open on Thanksgiving.

Instead of spending so much time preparing, cooking, worrying if the turkey’s going to turn out alright, and then cleaning up after everyone is gone, let someone else do it for you and make reservations instead. The following restaurants are open for Thanksgiving dinner in Chicago. Be sure to call ahead to check the details as they may change.
