What if you get hungry Easter weekend, 2023, in Lexington? Do you need hot cross buns? Ham? A buffet? Is there anything to eat? Can you order out? How about pre-orders you can pick up ahead of time, discard all the boxes, and pretend like you’ve whipped up your own fabulous feast for friends and family?
The answer to all of the above is, Yes. All of these options are plentiful. Easter Sunday falls mid-season this Spring, on April 9 2023 and may affect typical weekend lunch and brunch hours for many Lexington restaurants. (Call ahead to confirm.)
With staffing shortages and supply chain issues now firmly entrenched as the new normal, it’s never too soon to start evaluating your holiday dining options, especially if you would like to leave the cooking (and maybe the cleanup) to someone else.
