6 North Shore Restaurants Serving Easter Specials
Let one of these tasty eateries cater to your Easter needs.
This year, both Easter (Christian) and Eastern Orthodox Easter fall on the same Sunday (a rare occasion!), so it’s twice the reason to celebrate and twice the reason to let someone else do the cooking, whether it’s brunch, dinner, or something in between! Here are six North Shore restaurants serving up specials for you and your loved ones to enjoy this Easter.
