14 Restaurants That Will Be Open on Easter This Year

Hungry for Italian? Chinese? For 2022, there are plenty of restaurants open on Easter.

Everybody has different Easter traditions, ranging from egg hunts galore to celebrating with the Easter Bilby rather than the Easter Bunny. You might prefer to celebrate with a smaller dinner at home or a Sunday brunch with close family and friends, or even a delicious Easter spread delivered or picked up from your favorite spots.

Thankfully, there are plenty of restaurants open on Easter. Many require pre-ordering, though, so hop to it!
