Several local restaurants are offering special Thanksgiving-day prix fixe menus for those who don’t want to cook at home. A few options:

Dine has a three-course meal with a choice of roasted acorn squash soup or a salad of fall greens, sage-rubbed turkey breast with andouille sausage cornbread stuffing and caramelized shallot gravy, and pumpkin cheesecake. 4-10 PM, 733 W. Madison, 312-602-2100, $28.95, $16.95 for kids under 12.

Bistrot Margot’s three-course meal features traditional Thanksgiving entrees like oven-roasted turkey and glazed ham, plus pumpkin cheesecake for dessert; some standard menu items are also available. 11 AM-8 PM, 1437-39 N. Wells, 312-587-3660, $32.95.

Eve’s four regionally inspired menus (north, south, east, and west) range from four to six courses, featuring dishes like slow-roasted suckling pig, turkey-crawfish gumbo, grilled quail, smoked cheddar grits, and pumpkin-chocolate bread pudding. The vegetarian western menu includes mushroom strudel with blue cheese and an onion and butternut squash mille-feuille. Reservations required. Noon-7 PM, 840 N. Wabash, 312-266-3383, $55.

Ann Sather has a Thanksgiving dinner special of roast turkey with stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, soup, vegetables, and pie; other entree options include salmon, beef tenderloin, and spinach lasagna.
