Celebrate Easter without the added hassle and worry that comes with cooking a big meal. Instead, opt for delicious offerings from Lehigh Valley restaurants and help local businesses in the process. With statewide restrictions for dining easing, it’s more important than ever to plan ahead whether you reserve a table indoors or outside or preorder takeout. As restrictions constantly change, we highly recommend contacting local restaurants with questions or to make reservations.
