Easter is coming up this weekend–and for many families it may be the first holiday they’ve safely been able to celebrate together in a long time. Even those who don’t celebrate may be feeling a sense of renewal and rebirth after such a difficult year. To mark the occasion, many L.A. restaurants are offering special Easter brunch menus for dine-in and to-go.
Bourbon Steak is offering a three-course prix-fixe brunch for those who want to dine at the Glendale restaurant, either on the patio or indoors. Dishes include an array of savory and sweet dishes–including steak, of course. For those who prefer to dine at home, a special Easter roast package is available, with a choice of prime rib or lamb. michaelmina.net
