If you barely have enough time for everyday cooking, how will you find time to cook a Thanksgiving feast for family and friends?
A few years ago, alternatives to cooking -- dining out -- were limited to the kind of chain restaurant that never closes and serves only warmed-over foods.
But as increasing numbers of Baltimoreans choose to let others do the cooking for them on this festive day, many more of the area's finest restaurants are opening their doors and offering both traditional and innovative meals to clients.
If you wait until Thanksgiving Day morning to decide where you want to eat out, you will no no doubt be able to find an adequate place to eat, but if you have a favorite restaurant in mind, call soon -- the most coveted spots go fast.
