Your Easter or Passover table might not have as many family or friends as usual this year, but that doesn't mean your meal can't be festive. Plenty of restaurants are offering brunch and dinner takeout or delivery options, taking cooking off your plate for the holiday.

Most restaurants that are still open offer curbside takeout, and some offer delivery via Doordash, Dine-in, and UberEats. And a few are also able to provide their own delivery service, if you get your order in early; and some provide extra treats, like chocolate bunnies and peeps! Decorate the table with Easter crafts and dyed eggs, connect with loved ones via Zoom or FaceTime, and savor your holiday.
