With the coronavirus pandemic still keeping Dallas restaurant dining rooms closed, the 2020 edition of Easter is, to put it mildly, a little different this year.
There'll be no family expedition to a favorite restaurant for brunch. There'll be no "Mimosas for the table." There'll be no Easter bonnet.
But COVID-19 is no match for Dallas' creative food and beverage pros, who've devised some impressive to-go and takeout versions of the Easter feast. Many are keeping hours on Easter Sunday April 12, so you can drive up, grab your family dinner, and off you go.
