You’ve been tasked with bringing a side dish to a local Friendsgiving or Thanksgiving dinner. It shouldn’t be a big deal, but it is. Maybe you don’t have time to cook because of your day job and three side gigs or maybe you’re more like Erik Repair than Eric Ripert in the kitchen.

The following restaurants offer delivery and a dish that will help you save time or save face. Simply place a few orders of the following items, transfer the take-out from plastic container to something ceramic, and head to the party where you’re bound to be popular. It’s up to your moral compass whether you take credit for the dish or give a proper hat-tip to the restaurant.
