On Thursday of this week, our friends across the Atlantic will be celebrating a Thanksgiving like no other.
Like the rest of the world, they've had to get used to Covid-19 restrictions and Thanksgiving will be no exception. The same applies for anyone celebrating here in Dublin with indoor dining still prohibited, until December 1 at the earliest.
That doesn't mean you can't get your hands on some delicious Thanksgiving grub with all the trimmings. There are a few spots in Dublin that are offering delivery and click & collect services for Thanksgiving this year and we've outlined below where you can pick up a meal to enjoy from the comfort of your home.
Hopefully by the time Thanksgiving 2021 comes round, Americans in Dublin will be able to head out and celebrate in style but for now, take your pick from the following...
Tiller & Grain
The Frederick Street spot are putting together Thanksgiving boxes for this weekend that include stuff chicken thighs, yam and potato gratin and some Pecan Pie for dessert. Perfect for kicking back in front of the NFL on TV. You can DM them on Instagram here or call 0876808933 to ensure you don't miss out.
