14 Vancouver restaurants serving Thanksgiving dinner

Sep 22 2017, 4:58 am

The leaves are beginning to fall, the air is becoming more crisp, and we’re starting to get hungry, because we know what’s coming – Thanksgiving dinner.

This celebratory meal is one of the best of the year, in our opinion, because it’s the perfect balance of sweet and savoury. Juicy, tender turkey meat with tart cranberry sauce and the carb of all carbs – fluffy, thick stuffing.

While we love eating all of these things, we sure as hell aren’t going to buy the groceries to prepare and make them – and don’t even get us started about the clean-up and dishes from such a lavish meal.

No, we decided long about that we’d leave the cooking to the bros – chefs in Vancouver, to be more specific. Here are 14 Vancouver restaurants serving Thanksgiving dinner this holiday season.
