Way back when, Lent was much more rigorous a religious requirement than it is nowadays, but, still, feasting on Easter is a tradition many restaurants are glad to help out with. 

Taking the family out to a sumptuous brunch after Easter church services is a great way to celebrate all the life-renewing aspects of the season.  Here is a list–probably not all-inclusive, but the best info we now have–of restaurants serving brunch Sunday, April 20.
