Easter is coming up on April 17, and for many, that means enjoying a traditional Easter dinner or brunch with the family. But if you’ve been cooking at home more often than usual (for some, that might mean three meals a day), you might not want to go to great lengths to prepare a homemade Easter meal.
To help take the stress out of the spring holiday this year and maintain some normalcy — as Easter meals out are a tradition for many — here are restaurants offering dine-in and takeout deals for Easter.
