The Best Easter Dinners in Toronto

The best Easter feasts in Toronto range from lavish brunches to multi-course dinners with everything you need to properly mark the occasion. Whether you're celebrating the Christian festival or just relish an opportunity to salute spring, these Easter spreads are not to be missed.

Though none of us are thrilled to be spending our second Easter in quarantine, it may be best to focus on the positive and find reasons to rejoice. We're past winter's desolation and spring has officially sprung. Reason enough, if you ask us, to savour a few divine dishes from some of Toronto's top restaurants.

Whether you prefer a traditional feast -- the type centred around heart-achingly tender, slow-roasted meats, cooked until they're flawlessly browned, glazed and primed for the centre of your table -- or crave spring's cornucopia on a plate, reimagined into all manner of veg-forward bites, Toronto has the Easter dish for you.

A long weekend with three days to fill, Easter is the time to relax, recharge and to order the best takeout your pandemic days have seen. Take our advice and dig into one of Toronto's best Easter feasts for a long weekend you won't soon forget.
