So when I was younger, it was all about getting dressed up for church, painting eggs, Easter dinner, and this magical fuzzy bunny, which quite frankly, can be a tad-bit scary for little kids.  Now that I’m a little older, it’s a little less Easter bunny, but the dinner part never really gets old. If you’re out and about for Easter this year, and looking for brunch or dinner, there are tons of restaurants that are offering specials for you and your loved ones.

First up is Redwood of Bethesda.  From 10:30 am to 3:30 pm, there will be a traditional menu with everything from Flaked Salt Cod Salad with leeks, baby frisee, fingerling potatoes and beet vinaigrette to Miguel’s Virginia Ham with sweet potato puree, wilted Brussels sprout leaves and red eye gravy.  The menu is a la carte, and dishes will range between $9 and $22.  To top it off, for 15 bucks, you can enjoy bottomless mimosas (and you just can’t go wrong with bottomless mimosas).  Get your reservations in today!
