Are you celebrating Thanksgiving in Brooklyn this year? Or, if you volunteered to bring a delicious side or dessert, here’s where to order in Dumbo and wow your nearest and dearest.

Act fast, because you have to preorder at most of these spots before the holidays.

1. Lassen & Hennigs

If you’re ordering online, you must pick up all orders at their Montague Street location. However, the Dumbo outpost has a wide array of desserts, including colorful, delicious cakes, if you feel like winging it and showing up.

2. Almondine Bakery

It’s not Thanksgiving without something sweet. Bring a pecan pie or a tart or a oh-so-classic pumpkin pie. Either way, you must order by Tuesday, November 20.

3. Atrium Dumbo

Who says you have to cook this Thanksgiving? Instead, order a complete holiday meal at Atrium. Order by Tuesday, November 20.

4. Butler

Butler is a Thanksgiving dessert must-do. Order by 5pm on Monday, November 19.

5. Jacques Torres

Oh, chocolate. It’s the perfect little treat to bring on a holiday get together, no? Or, pick up some tasty pies – plus, they’re in stock so no need to order.

6. OddFellows 

Or, there’s always ice cream. The shop will be open until 10 pm on November 21, for all of you latecomers.

7. One Girl Cookies

Now, that you’re bringing ice cream, it would be rude not to bring cookies. Deadline for all Thanksgiving orders is 5pm, Tuesday November 20.

8. Smile To Go

Pick up an apple cider brined turkey (yum!) and all of the traditional sides, plus a dessert. Items are a la carte. Deadline to order is 2pm, Monday November 19.
