There is no doubt that enjoying a home-cooked meal around the dining room table is a delightful Thanksgiving tradition. Doing the dishes afterward, on the other hand, is one tradition we could do without!
Luckily, there are a handful of local Akron and Canton restaurants offering up Turkey Day feasts of their own. Bring your loved ones to indulge in a hearty buffet or an elegant prix-fixe meal in the area — you will still get to spend time together, and you can relax knowing the kitchen will be clean when you get home.
