Rick's Picks: Easter Dining

March 29, 2012

Easter Sunday, April 8 is one of the holiest days of the Christian calendar. While it is traditionally a time for families to gather, it doesn’t seem to create the same angst as Thanksgiving and Christmas. If you’d rather dine out with your family, biological or adopted/created, there are a number of options available.
