Phoning things in. Not always the best idea. But when it comes to cooking for the holidays, phoning in your oder for a complete Thanksgiving meal delivered magically to your door is practically a New York tradition. We don't cook. That's just a fact. So if you're having out of towners over for the holiday, give them the true NYC experience by dialing one of these gourmet options and having your Thanksgiving made for you.
Whether or not you decide to take credit for it we'll leave up to you.
