Easter is going to look very different this year while we are dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. Usually on Easter Sunday many Milwaukee families flood area restaurants and supper clubs for Easter Brunch. With the "safer at home" order in effect and bars and restaurants closed some are getting creative and offer takeout options for Milwaukee families.
So if you want to maintain some sense of normalcy or just don't want to cook on Easter Sunday, here is a list of places you can look to. Let's also not forget how important it is to continue to support our local restaurants while they struggle through this time. We recommend calling ahead as many of these offerings are limited and always best to pre-order early.
The restaurant at 3041 N. Mayfair Road, Wauwatosa, will be open from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Easter Sunday for curbside pickup.
The abbreviated takeout menu includes turkey ($24), ham ($24), Cornish hen ($27), salmon ($30) and filet mignon ($32). Entrées come with sides, turkey rice or French onion soup or salad, baked, whipped or french fried potatoes, and a dessert (apple or pumpkin pie, blueberry, cherry or sour cream cheesecake, or sherbet). Bottles of wine are $7 to $18.
