Thanksgiving is going to look a little different this year. The city’s restaurants are pitching in to make the day a little more delicious. In this era of social distancing and curbside pickup, eateries are offering a wider variety of options for takeout and delivery. Here are two options from across the city to help spice up your holiday plans.
Lena’s Wood-Fired Pizza and Tap, 401 E. Braddock Road
According to the Alexandria Gazette Packet, “Lena’s is straying from their usual Italian-American fare to serve up a Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings. While the restaurant is offering a dine-in option as well, their to-go Thanksgiving meal is teeming with delights, from oven-roasted turkey and turkey gravy to garlic sauteed green beans, focaccia stuffing, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin cheesecake with caramel sauce. The cherry on top? The restaurant is donating $9 to ALIVE for every meal purchased. Reserve by Nov. 22. $69.”
City Kitchen, 330 S. Pickett St.
As per Alexandria Gazette Packet, “No cooking AND no washing the pots and pans? City Kitchen’s got you covered. Choose a three-course dinner for $35 or order your meal a la carte for carry-out either before Thursday or with limited time slots on the holiday itself. Start off with some honey herb goat cheese with crostini, move to a crab and wild mushroom bisque, go traditional with roasted turkey or more veg-heavy with a pumpkin, spinach, and wild mushroom risotto, and by all means don’t forget the sides. Or, for that matter, the dessert – pumpkin and pecan pies come in full or half sizes. Order by Nov. 23.”
