Easter 2023 falls on the second Sunday in April, and like Christmas, it’s an important religious holiday for Christians as it marks the resurrection of Jesus Christ three days after his death by crucifixion.
For Christians and Catholics, Easter is the joyful end to the Lenten season of fasting and repentance. Meanwhile, those who don’t observe the religious aspects of Easter associate this holiday with the Easter bunny, egg hunts, and brunches.
Thinking of what to do this Easter Sunday? Why not have a feast at any one of these restaurants? If you’re pressed for time, pick up some treats instead for your own spread at home or to help you prep for an Easter egg hunt of your own! Check out our list below.
