With all the effort that goes into the Norman Rockwell (or Martha Stewart) vision of Thanksgiving, the holiday meal can be the source of much  stress.

Hours of cooking result in a relative few minutes of dining and it always seems like something – a disappointing pie or a cranberry recipe the diners avoid – puts a damper on the meal. And then there’s the cleanup.

Would you be thankful for a stress free turkey day dinner this Nov. 23?

You don’t have to wait until a pack of neighborhood dogs steals your turkey to eat out on a holiday. Several area restaurants are serving variations on a traditional Thanksgiving dinner and some have options for vegetarians and those who may be thankful but can’t abide the big bird.

Reservations are required at some places and advisable at all. Prices may not include tax and gratuity. The number to reserve is at the end of each listing and all are area code 802.
