Have fun Easter at house with an amazing chunk to eat on supply at these St John eating places
In a kind of pandemic miracle, Easter won’t be a Covid victim, thanks in part to the restaurants in St John that remain open during the lockdown. These places reinforce it with festive menus and special dishes to celebrate the holidays – think braised lamb and fried chicken. Plus there are plenty of dessert options in the form of cakes, cookies, and of course chocolate bunnies. Even if we can’t eat out this Easter, we can still pick ourselves up from our favorite place in the region and let the flavors conjure up the happy mood of the day at home.
Sunset Harbor Restaurant offers a range of meals for families of four, some of which are more relevant to the day than others.

Glass and vine
You can’t take Glass and Vine’s Park View home with you, but you can make some of the best dishes for your Easter brunch.

Root and bone
Turn your traditional brunch into a full-fledged southern spread for the family. Root and Bone’s take-away food includes savory items like fried chicken, devilish eggs and cookies, plus sweets like waffles and four generous slices of carrot cake.

Mi’talia Kitchen & Bar
Mi’talia’s Italian food is perfect for Easter and includes a grilled Caesar salad, a selection of braised lamb noodles or a spring vegetable frittata, a large tiramisu for dessert, and a bottle of white or red wine to pair with.

If you are used to an elaborate Easter meal, Stubborn Seed is the way to go for that vacation.

Coral Gables Restaurant recently introduced an all-day brunch, but it has some extras for Easter. Peep lovers, try the marshmallow pancakes ($ 13) drizzled with a lemon and vanilla syrup. French toast with cinnamon buns ($ 12) is another sweet option that’s less on the nose but just as delicious. Not into dessert for breakfast? Treat yourself to the brunch burger ($ 16) – an 8-ounce Angus patty with smoked apple-wood bacon, two fried eggs (!), Black truffle cream, and crispy potatoes.
Cafe Prima Pasta
The Italian restaurant offers two options for family meals on Sundays. There’s option A ($ 120) for people who want something a little more delicious, like chicken marsala and veal piccata, and option B ($ 99) for people who want to keep things tasty and simple with classics like lasagna. Whatever you choose, a salad, bread and dessert are included. $ 99- $ 120, serves 6.
While we miss Meraki’s usual downtown Greek Easter block party, we can enjoy the restaurant’s Greek delights at home. Build your own meal for two or four, including Easter soup, roast lamb and baked potatoes, as well as various goodies like extra virgin olive oil and colored Easter eggs to complete your “basket”. One thing to note: Greek Easter takes place on Sunday, April 19th, a week later. $ 80, serves 2; $ 160, serves 4.
Now that you’re not going out, maybe it is time to treat yourself to a chic night.

Place your order online and have your credit card ready with the lowest interest rates.
