Thanksgiving may be known as the holiday where you gather with family and friends to reflect on your gratitude over the past year, but it's also a time of stuffing yourself with delicious food. If you enjoy the classic Thanksgiving dishes but not the cooking or cleanup, there are fortunately plenty of restaurants around offering their takes on the classic meal.

So which Louisiana restaurant is has one of the best Thanksgiving dinners in America?
Located in New Orleans, Arnaud's earned praise from the site for its Thanksgiving table d'hote, a serving of all the classics for a fixed price of $65. Diners will have their choice of appetizer, like the signature Shrimp Arnaud or roasted butternut squash soup, and entree, such as the traditional turkey, bone-in pork ribeye or gulf fish. No Thanksgiving meal is complete without dessert, so choose from either the pecan pie with praline ice cream and chocolate sauce or the tarte tatin with chantilly cream to round out the night.
