Easter is right around the corner and you’re wondering where you can go so you don’t have to end up doing the dishes. Here’s a roundup of some of Dallas’ fun restaurants donning the Easter festivities and serving up good eats all day long for the April 16th holiday..
Pie Tap Pizza Workshop + Bar
Brunch is available on Easter Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Brunch standouts range from classic brunch items like French Toast (made with house-made sourdough, local honey, vanilla crème fraiche, spiced pecans and seasonal berries topped with maple syrup) and the Truck Stop Biscuits + Sausage Gravy (with house-made biscuits and house sausage gravy served with two sunny farm eggs and roasted Calabrian potatoes) to Pie Tap creations such as the Eggs Florentine Pie with house mozzarella, spinach and a farm egg drizzled with hollandaise and the Smoked Salmon Pie featuring Icelandic smoked salmon, house lemon ricotta, red onion, dill and capers topped with house-cured egg yolk. This pie was inspired by two classic brunch items that guests know and love - lox and bagels and the smoked salmon platter. Pie Tap deconstructed, upgraded and simplified the base ingredients to create the Smoked Salmon Pie.
