WEB EXCLUSIVE Don’t worry, be hoppy! Easter is this weekend, and to celebrate, a number of Triangle-area restaurants will be offering special Easter brunch and dinner meals, dishes and drinks (for dine-in and takeout!) that will make the holiday that much more egg-ceptional. Check out our list of “eggstra” opps and hop to your reservations and preorders! 

Il Palio

Treat you and the fam to an egg-stremely bougie three-course Easter Sunday brunch at Il Palio. Choose from apps like lamb and ricotta meatballs, and a caramelized leek and potato frittata; entrees such as brioche French toast and penne shrimp fra diavolo; and desserts including focaccia bread pudding and grapefruit sorbet.

Midtown Grille

Make a resy for Easter brunch anytime between 10am and 2:30pm to enjoy Midtown Grille’s spiral ham feature—which includes glazed spiral ham, green beans, Southern potato salad and deviled eggs—or anything on the resto’s regular brunch menu.

13 Taco and Taps

Chef-owner David Peraza created a special taco just in time for Easter weekend. Dubbed The 13th Taco, the Central Mexico Hidalgo-style taco features lamb barbacoa, cilantro, onion and Chile de Arbol salsa served on a housemade blue corn tortilla (taco ’bout yummmm!). Grab yours March 30 through April 3 for dine-in or takeout.


Sitti promises its Easter package has everything you could ever want (and need) for an egg-cellent holiday feast. Ditch the standard ham and potatoes for avocado hummus, goat cheese-stuffed peppers, boneless braised lamb and maamoul (Lebanese Easter cookies)—and much more. Call to order by April 1 for pickup this Saturday or Sunday.


An alfresco Easter brunch on STIR’s sunny patio is something everyone can get egg-cited about. Make a reservation for Saturday or Sunday to enjoy delicious dishes like sauteed salmon cakes, ceviche, fish tacos and chicken picatta—plus $5 bloody marys.

Tonbo Ramen

Tonbo released two new refreshing spring cocktails just in time for Easter weekend. Toast to the holiday with a Mangomosa or Strawberrymosa—both best accompanied with a delicious bowl of ramen. Cheers!

Margaux’s Restaurant

Enjoy a three-course prix fixe Easter luncheon courtesy of Margaux’s for to-go (limited quantities available) or dine-in. Choose from apps like crab and corn chowder, and lamb gyro dumplings, and entrees such as Thai-style grilled pork chops and vegetarian eggs Benedict; then finish on a sweet note with a chocolate mousse, creme brulee or other sweet selects.

La Farm Bakery

Let La Farm take care of the carbs this Easter, and order sweet treats like Easter bunny bread, hot cross buns, lemon poppy seed yeast rolls and carrot cake by March 31 for pickup on April 3.

Longleaf Swine BBQ

Today (March 30) is the last day to order Longleaf Swine’s Easter barbecue buffet! The menu features smoked prime rib roast and smoked ham, along with sides such as pimento mac and cheese, whiskey baked beans, deviled eggs, and collard greens.

The Capital Grille

This North Hills mainstay is offering a to-dye-for three-course Easter brunch for dine-in as well as a three-course Easter dinner to-go. The special brunch menu includes New England-style clam chowder, lobster frittata, shrimp and grits, and a flourless chocolate espresso cake for dessert—plus a classic mimosa because, hey, it’s the weekend.

Angus Barn

Make Easter memorable by indulging in a decadent plated meal at Angus Barn (think ham, green beans, mashed potatoes and chocolate chess pie), or by ordering the popular resto’s ready-to-cook bone-in prime rib Easter feast, which serves four to five people and also comes with sides and dessert.

Poppyseed Market

Could there be a better Easter dinner combo than glazed ham and cheddar biscuits? We think not. Enjoy all that and more (without doing any of the work yourself!) by ordering Poppyseed Market’s Easter meal to-go by Thursday, April 1 for pickup Saturday, April 3.

Tazza Kitchen

Tazza’s uber popular brunch is back just in time for Easter weekend! On Sunday they’ll be serving up popular dishes like heuvos rancheros and crab Benedict—alongside classic and housemade cocktails including the beloved Greyhound—from 10:30am to 3pm.
