Ah, the Lord is risen. Maybe. Easter is a time to celebrate many things whether or not you’re rejoicing in Jesus’s resurrection; it’s a coming of spring, it’s a time to see family, it’s a time to don those pastels and, of course, it’s a time to brunch. So whether you’re packing in to church or just admiring seasonal candy (why has no one yet invented an enormous Cadbury Egg?), we invite you to take a load off and unbutton a top button (or two) at some of the DMV’s can’t-miss brunch spots this weekend. (For some other pro Easter brunch options, might we recommend Zaytinya’s Greek Easter and Cherry Picks?)
