Thanksgiving dining recs

Hi to all in the Milwaukee area (and anyone else in the Midwest who might have an idea).

I'm looking for a good rec for Thanksgiving dinner. For a variety of reasons, I want to skip cooking this year. I searched the board and came up with nothing, and it's been many a year since I haven't cooked (over 20 years ago ate at Fox and Hounds).

Thanks, Mike

    1. Do you want to eat out, or get a dinner pre-prepared to serve in your own home? If it's the latter, you've got a brand-new Whole Foods in Milwaukee. I've bought prepared Thanksgiving dinner from Whole Foods' deli twice, and both times it's been great. Turkey and all the trimmings—you just heat it up in your own oven at home and serve at your own table. When I've done that, I did some picking and choosing on the side dishes. Those that were reasonably easy to prepare at home, that I didn't think would be good from WF or wouldn't be good reheated, I made myself. But it was still hardly any cooking, and we still got to eat a home cooked meal, sort of.

      1. Hi,

        I guess I should have been clearer. I'm in Milwaukee, and looking for dining out.

        as for the home cooked thing. That I can do myself. The sage/bacon/butter turkey being my masterpiece. But, this year, dining out, fancy is good. Downtown or north shore is best, but....
