As Turkey Day draws closer, work may be gobbling up your time and inflation your grocery budget. CNN reports that a home-cooked Thanksgiving dinner could cost about 13% more than last year.

Or maybe you trust that the team at Cassava, Lily, Brenda’s or Che Fico can out-chef anything coming out of your kitchen? 

Either way, trimming the budget, reducing stress and eating an SF-level holiday feast in one fell swoop is reason enough to give thanks. (But if you just want to give in and book a table, here’s your guide.)

Luckily, it’s not too late to order a premade feast from restaurants and markets across the city—but time is of the essence! Check out the map below, and read on for our picks to dress your Thanksgiving table—and order today!
