The Thanksgiving feast awaits.
| Smith & Wollensky

Perhaps one of the few silver linings to come out of this rollercoaster year is that it’ll be okay to take a pass on the extended family Thanksgiving dinner and opt for a more intimate, safer celebration this year.

For those wanting to pass on the hard work of cooking and enjoy the holiday meal made by a talented chef, Miami has got plenty of places to choose from, whether it’s dining in or taking out. For dine-in spots, reservations are required and/or highly recommended depending on the venue.

Editor’s Note: A number of South Florida restaurants have resumed indoor and outdoor dining services. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for onsite dining, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the Florida Health Department’s website. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines. For those wanting to find the best takeout and dining options throughout Miami, please visit here.
