Thanksgiving is just as much about the food as it is about the people you share it with. So, if you’d rather focus on family and friends and not the shopping, preparation, and clean-up that goes hand-in-hand with Thanksgiving Dinner, you’re in luck. There are many Los Angeles-area restaurants serving memorable Thanksgiving meals.
