Go all out on Easter with Prime & Provisions’ brunch offerings.
| Prime & Provisions

Easter is on April 4 and Chicago restaurants are gearing up for the occasion with special brunch and dinner offerings. Whether Chicagoans want to enjoy their meals in the comforts of home or prefer a dine-in experience, they’ll have lots of options to choose from. The menus and packages feature everything from traditional items, such as glazed ham, roasted lamb, and carrot cake, to delicacies like caviar. Read on to find spots to celebrate the holiday; some have ordering deadlines so acting sooner rather than later is recommended.

As of March 2, Chicago restaurants are permitted to serve customers indoors with a 50 percent maximum capacity per room, or 50 people — whichever is fewer. At the same time, despite winter weather, a number of Chicago restaurants continue to offer outdoor seating. Regardless, the state requires reservations for both indoor and outdoor dining. The level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as an endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns. For updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the city of Chicago’s COVID-19 dashboard. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
