Thanksgiving Dinner catering, need some help.....

I'm doing the Thanksgiving thing this year for the family, and we're trying to figure out what both the best (and most reliable) place to order is.

I'm thinking Citarella, someone else told me to order from Zabar, while I'm also considering Fresh Direct.

I'd be picking everything up on Wednesday, and reheating it on Thanksgiving, but how much time, work and effort is actually involved here ?

Who is the best thanksgiving meal caterers out there in New York ? and how reliable are they ? I don't want to place and order to be picked up, and then show up and its not there (or if I go with fresh direct, worry that the order won't be completed).

How good are holiday thanksgiving caterers and how much work/time goes into reheating everything ?

We're looking at a dinner for somewhere between 6 to 10 people. I really appreciate any feedback or help you kind folks can provide.

      Thanks, I'm looking at them, I'm still not sure though how good the food actually comes out though, I've never had a thanksgiving dinner catered, and I don't know how long it would take to warm or prep everything either..........I'm a total novice at this.....

    2. Fairway or freshDirect should do ya just fine

      1. Butterfield Market is very reliable and has good stuff.
