Thanksgiving dinner can invoke so many emotions, not least of all, that feeling that the holiday season is supposed to be about filling the kitchen with ingredients and going to painstaking measures to create the ultimate feast for the whole extended family, no matter if you really feel like it or not. There are a number of dining establishments throughout metro Detroit that understand this predicament and, instead of judging, they open their doors to folks who would rather take the hard work out of the holiday and simply get to the business of enjoying the company of their loved ones.
