Thanksgiving to go dinners

I need to know what is the best bet for a pre-cooked thanksgiving dinner to go. I've seen many ads but there is no way to tell the quality and taste of the food by price. I need some recommendations? Price is not a problem. We live in the SGV. Thanks in advance.

  1. Two places I would suggest you consider in SGV:

    Elements Kitchen


    1. Ooops, well this might not help, too far....

      Josie's in Santa Monica - great food and they will do your feast TO GO, ahead of time, all you do is Pick up and Heat up. Pico & 24th.

      1. I had Von's. I wasn't impressed--also surprised the turkey still needed to complete its cooking time. (I mention this, in case you are not near a functioning kitchen.)

        Friends of ours have picked up Gelsons and enjoyed it. I've heard very good things about Mimi's Cafe, over in Eagle Rock--but their pick up times were fairly rigid, especially when compared to those of a grocery store.

        1. Don't know if it's too far, but Auntie Em's Kitchen.

          1. FYI - just got an email that Grace is doing T'giving dinners to go. Not in the SG valley, but mid city area. Excellent food, last time I was there.
