This year, those who normally gather with family and friends for Easter brunch or dinner at a suburban restaurant unfortunately have to make other plans Sunday because of Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s stay-at-home order during the COVID-19 pandemic. While you can’t break bread in a restaurant dining room, you can still enjoy Easter specials from many of your favorite spots at home. But note that many restaurants require preorders by Friday, April 10.

Here are some of the specials local restaurants are offering for curbside pickup or delivery on Easter.
