Easter is April 1 this year. No, really. I’m predicting people are going to be finding some really weird stuff in the plastic eggs they hunt down.
But only the truly foolish would wait any longer to make dining plans for Easter Sunday. I know you’re smarter than that, so you’d better get moving. (You thought I was going to say you’d better get hopping, didn’t you? Well, some things are just beneath me.)
The restaurants at the various Loews Hotels at Universal Orlando have some pretty nice options, as they do most holidays. And they’re really gorgeous properties. Even if you’re a local, it’s fun to visit the Loews resorts and pretend you’re on vacation.
Here are some of the highlights for your Easter Sunday dining.
