Thanksgiving Day is rapidly approaching, and Chicagoans will celebrate with larger gatherings after 2020’s suggested limits on the number of people per household thanks to COVID-19. There are still plenty of holiday concerns, but for health officials in Chicago — which occupies unceded traditional homelands of the Kiikaapoi, Peoria, Kaskaskia, Bodéwadmiakiwen (Potawatomi), and Myaamia tribes — vaccines have alleviate some of that risk. While plenty of restaurants are open for dining in, many will opt for the comforts of home. Here’s the best places for Thanksgiving takeout.

As of August 20, the city has mandated that everyone wear facial coverings while indoors. For updated information on coronavirus cases, please visit the city of Chicago’s COVID-19 dashboard. Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; the latest data about the delta variant indicates that it may pose a low-to-moderate risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial transmission. The latest CDC guidance is here; find a COVID-19 vaccination site here.
