Thanksgiving dinner from Dóttir, the Icelandic-inspired restaurant at Kex Hotel

This year more than ever, you're probably feeling a little tired of your own cooking—and celebrations will likely be much more scaled down than usual. Thankfully, these Portland restaurants, markets, and food carts have you covered this Thanksgiving with delivery and takeout options. Act quickly if you're interested, because turkey is selling out fast.


Since we can't travel, how about a takeout Peruvian Thanksgiving this year? The four course dinner includes a winter salad with Mizuna Farms lettuce, quinoa, watermelon radish, and spiced pepitas, plus a main course of turkey breast poached in cilantro-beer sauce. Plus, in appropriate Thanksgiving fashion, there are two desserts on the menu: pumpkin pie followed by alfajores. Order online for parties of two or four. 1314 NW Glisan St
