Believe it or not, Thanksgiving is right around the corner. And with it, comes a basket of holiday-related anxieties. Should I bake a pie this year? Is it weird to invite the person I'm seeing? Did cavemen eat pumpkins, too? Am I fundamentally boring because I enjoy turkey? Planning a sit-down dinner doesn’t have to be one of them. Here’s a list of Los Angeles restaurants serving Thanksgiving dinner.
