Thanksgiving To Go
Let Them Do It For You!
Looking for a turkey to go, sides, dessert or the whole feast? Here are some of our picks:
Cloud Nine in Old Saybrook is ready to, with a complete menu that includes butternut bisque, prepared and oven-ready turkeys (with cooking instructions), gravy, apple and fennel stuffing, mashed Yukon gold potatoes and cranberry-orange relish by the pint. Vegetarians can feast happily on butternut squash-and-spinach lasagna. And here’s a feel-good finish, Cloud Nine will donate $5 from every holiday order to the CT Food Bank. www.cloudninecatering.net
Thanksgiving-to-go is a 30-year tradition at Elizabeth’s Café in Madison. Choose from fully-prepared individual dinners or a la carte items from their online menu. Take home a whole turkey – brined, stuffed and roasted – along with all the sides made from local farm-fresh ingredients, et voila! Dinner is served. Check out their menu here or call 203.245.0250.
Or let La Rosticceria do it for you. This Guilford caterer offers a full Thanksgiving menu and you’ll find sides like stuffing with wild mushrooms, and butternut squash and apple bisque (gluten-free and dairy-free) on offer. If you like simple, fresh sides to balance out other rich dishes on the Thanksgiving plate, they’re known for their roasted root vegetables and Brussel sprouts. 203.458.8885 or www.guilfordtakeout.com.
We were all confused when Colors Cafe in Guilford closed so suddenly. But Mad Gourmet, the folks responsible for the kitchen, are still (thankfully) at it. If you’re on the hunt for gluten-free or vegetarian options, head here. The Thanksgiving menu includes field green Thanksgiving salad, vegetarian shephard’s pie, gluten-free pumpkin ravioli, gluten-free gravy and all-butter fresh pumpkin pie (no canned pumpkin here!). Thanksgiving classics available, too. www.themadgourmet.com

Just the two of you? Why cook? Pick up individual dinners (from soup to nuts) at Mystic Market for only $19.99 each, or choose from their intriguing Thanksgiving menu, including pumpkin and yellow pepper soup with smoked paprika, crushed turnips with crispy fried onions, and caramel apple cheesecake. Yum!
