Thanksgiving Dinner To-Go


A post shared by Allie Bs (@allie_bs_cozy_kitchen) on

Allie B's Cozy Kitchen

Allie B's Cozy Kitchen is Albany's go-to spot for soul food and southern-style cuisine. Choose between a full turkey dinner or a full roasted duck dinner for the eatery's to-go holiday meals. Both dinner options include candied yams, homemade cornbread dressing, collard greens, cranberry sauce and sweet potato pie. Or, create your own comfort food meal and choose from options such as glazed sweet ham, grilled barbecue pork ribs, southern rice & beans, fried fish, or macaroni & cheese. After a holiday meal catered by Allie B's, visions of sweet potato pie will dance through your head for the rest of the holiday season. 

The Century House

The Century House in Latham has you covered with three ways to celebrate. Choose between three Thanksgiving special offers including a family dinner to-go (feeds 6 people), a three-course meal to-go (per person), or a private room harvest meal. If you are interested in a to-go option don't wait to pre-order! The deadline to order family dinners and individual meals to-go is November 12. Interested in the private room harvest meal? Reserve one of The Century House's 7 private rooms for a small family gathering with plenty of colonial charm. Each room is completely sanitized and sprayed after each party leaves and before each party arrives.
