Easter 2021...Almost Back to #Normal

This time last year the trending hashtag was #easterathome. Americans were getting ready for an extra special "special" day. Uncertainty, fear and quarantine forced Easter to go underground and for most, it was an at-home experience including the traditional brunch. Well, here we are a year later. The vaccines are a-flowin', the birds are a-chirpin' and the restaurants are ready to (carefully!) serve you. Whether you are ready for #normal in-restaurant brunch or still being Covid-careful and looking for takeout, Easter 2021 will have many more options than a year ago. Pro tip: BOOK YOUR TABLE or ORDER NOW! Many of these will sell out.
