Easter Sunday is about church, family and food. And since you guys know I’m all about the food, that’s what I’ll focus on in this blog. If you’re not planning to cook yourself, there’s several restaurants that are serving Easter meals. Be sure to make a reservation as they can get busy.
- Chef Roy Harland and the Elbow Room are serving an Easter brunch and an Easter Dinner later in the day.

At the dinner from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., diners can choose from roasted prime rib au jus, Australian lobster tail, and crab-stuffed jumbo prawns and other dishes.
