If you’re feeling inundated with an impossible to-do list of decorating Easter eggs and crafts, scouting locations for the annual egg hunt, and deciding who will be stuck wearing the Easter bunny costume this year, the last thing you probably want to add to the list is cooking a big holiday meal. For those hoping to enjoy a stress-free brunch or casual dinner with family and friends this year, here's a list of restaurants already checked off for you. Ah, one less thing to worry about on Easter Sunday. You're welcome!
