Pick Up Everything You Need for an Easter Feast at NEPA’s Local Restaurants
These restaurants will take care of everything from the ham right down to the carrot cake.
Even though we can’t gather with all of our friends and family this year, we can still enjoy to a delicious Easter dinner at home. You don’t even have to cook a ham or brave a trip to the supermarket. Many of NEPA’s local restaurants are offering holiday dinners to go. All you have to do is place your order and pick it up. And when the family asks, why yes, you cooked it all yourself.
Our Easter traditions might look a little different this year, but a homemade meal can help make things feel a little more normal. Some restaurants are offering individual dinners, while others are making family-sized meal packages and catering trays that can feed the whole house.
Pre-orders are required at most restaurants, so make sure to plan ahead. Call or check online for full menus and ordering details.
