Thanksgiving is quickly sneaking up on us, and while some of us might enjoy cooking all day, we know it can also be a hassle — especially for a large crowd. Luckily for Hoboken and Jersey City residents, several local restaurants, caterers, and catering businesses have no problem doing the job. It’s easy to get an entire traditional Thanksgiving meal from the following restaurants in the Hudson County area. To save time and energy, we’ve rounded up a list of Thanksgiving catering options in Hoboken + Jersey City.
Disclaimer: This is a growing list — to be included, please email email@example.com with information about offerings + how to order.
