Where to Order Your Easter Brunch or Dinner To Go Around Chicago

Easter 2020 might go down in history as one of the strangest celebrations yet. With churches closed, gatherings cancelled and the stay at home order in place, we are left to celebrate as best we can in our homes with our small circle of family we are quarantined with. Luckily, we can still support local restaurants by ordering our Easter brunch or dinner for delivery or for curbside pick-up. Here are just a few that will help us keep some normalcy in our holiday (just remember to order ahead!).
