Easter Brunch or Dinner Delivery: Chicago Restaurants Offering Takeout Holiday Meals

Families may not be able to get together in person for Easter brunch or Easter dinner this year. However, Chicagoans can still enjoy a decadent meal from a variety of local restaurants. Outsourcing your Easter menu to one of these eateries to prepare the ham, prime rib, lamb, or even a moussaka can take the stress off quarantined parents and leave time for the Easter bunny to make his annual visit. Some venues also offer their wine and cocktail menu for takeout and delivery patrons.

Many restaurants require families to order in advance. Some meals are fully prepared while others require heating, so parents should plan ahead even if they’re not preparing the whole meal.


Pulled Pork and scrumptious sides make for family-friendly Easter dinner.
