Sometimes, we want to abandon tradition and this year, for those of us that don’t feel like cooking, Angelenos have a few options. So as we sit around and pontificate on all of the incredible things we’re grateful for, among them be sure to include the gratitude for chefs that are willing to share their holidays with us. Some of LA’s finest are opening their doors … and their menus … to invite us in for a little something different.

Personally, I am beyond grateful for that!

Make your reservations at any of the restaurants below.
