This Easter will look a bit different for the country, especially New Orleans, compared to years past. No Easter parades, no egg hunts with the neighborhood, but that’s okay! There’s still plenty of fun activities you can do from home, including everyone’s favorite activity: EATING!
Check out some of these local spots that are still open and doing Easter brunch, lunch, or dinner this weekend.
Give us brunch! Ruby Slipper Cafe has kept 4 New Orleans locations open, including one in Metairie, so that you can keep on brunchin’. In addition to their regular meal, they have also announced a special Easter family meal that includes a meat (applewood smoked ham/French Truck coffee glazed ham), a side, and dessert with options ranging to feed 3-4 people up to 8-10 people in your household.
Barcadia is re-opening their doors once more to serve up some delicious crawfish and to-go drinks! The bar/restaurant joint has been closed for the past 2 weeks due to COVID-19. This is an awesome way to support their restaurant and staff, so swing by if you’re in the CBD!
