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.

Second, Beauport will be serving a three-course prix fixe Easter dinner in its 1606 Restaurant & Bar from noon-9 p.m., featuring entrée options of center cut beef tenderloin filet, potato and herb crusted native haddock, spring pea risotto, maple plank roasted Faroe Islands salmon, or mustard and herb rubbed rack of lamb, for $52.
