Hop to These Easter Options

Mon, 03/18/2024 - 12:09
L&W Market in Bridgehampton is cooking up some take-home options for Easter dinner, including a variety of appetizer selections, like a charcuterie board.

Spring means many things, including religious celebrations of renewal like Passover and Easter. Along with sunrise services, egg hunts, bonnet parades, and all things sacred and profane, there is the Easter feast, typically a brunch, but sometimes a dinner, or something in between. Forthwith, some of the local offerings for those who want their Easter meals served to them, whether at a restaurant table or their own.

1770 House
At East Hampton's 1770 House, Easter dinner will be served beginning at 5. Easter specials will round out the usual selections from the $65 two-course menu. Look for spring pea soup and Dijon and brioche crusted rack of lamb with rosemary potatoes, leeks, peas, and pancetta. The menus are available for takeout as well.

The inn will also hold its annual chocolate bunny raffle for a 24-inch, 10-pound milk chocolate bunny to benefit the Flying Point Foundation for Autism. Tickets are $5 each or five for $20. The winner will be announced on March 30, in time to take home the bunny for Easter Sunday.
