Easter is kind of the best if you think about it. It’s the start of spring and the flowers are just starting to bloom. It’s also a time for gathering with friends and families for egg hunts, tea parties, church services, and a good old-fashioned Sunday supper (while following social distancing protocols, of course). But after the year we’ve had, we deserve some time to relax and let someone else do the cooking this holiday. That’s why we rounded up the best seven places to score an egg-cellent Easter takeout dinner this year. What are you waiting for? Hop to it!
