I don’t know about you but the very thought of going to the grocery store to get food to put together for Easter dinner scares the hell out of me right now.
Much better to order from one of our local restaurants that are offering special Easter Sunday menus. No shopping, no cooking, very little cleanup, though this is a good time to remind you to wash your hands. And even better, by ordering Easter dinner from a restaurant, you’re helping to keep a small business open and some employees paid.
But here’s the thing: A lot of the restaurants are requiring preorders so they can better plan on how much they’ll need. Some of those deadlines are as early as today, though most will allow you to order through Friday. Also, some will require pickup on Saturday – those meals will obviously come with instructions for reheating.
Everybody has a different rule, so hop on over (see what I did there?) to the Easter Dining listings and look over your options; they are myriad. Give careful consideration to Flog favorites Delaney’s Tavern, Tap Room at Dubsdread, Soco, Stefano’s Trattoria and First Watch.
And you’ll even find some that will allow you to still order on Sunday and pick it up or have it delivered. But still, you should plan ahead.
