Easter Feasts at Chicago Steakhouses
Considering the prominence of meat-eating going on for Easter (it is the end of Lent, after all), steakhouses are pretty much your best bet for holiday dining. Chicago has got plenty of options to choose from this year, too. Here are three of the best Easter offerings at local steakhouses:
The Tavern On Rush Hippity hoppity Easter is on its way! Join us April 1st for our annual Brunch with the Bunny.
Harry Caray’s fan-favorite Champagne Brunch is back again this year. Harry’s River North location will offer a selection of brunch favorites and the suburban locations in Lombard and Rosemont will offer abundant buffet brunches, with a range of offerings including carving stations, made-to-order omelets and waffles, Harry’s classics like Chicken Vesuvio and a visit from the Easter Bunny.

Seatings cost $65 per adult and $25 for children. Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling Prime & Provisions.
Swift & Sons: For the first time ever, Swift & Sons is getting in on the Easter brunch action, offering a family-style feast of prix fixe dishes and snacks like chocolate-chocolate chip scones, cinnamon rolls, marinated flank steak and eggs, whole-wheat pancakes with strawberry-rhubarb jam and sides like cheddar biscuits, applewood-smoked bacon and double-fried red potatoes. Shellfish towers and oysters can be added as a la carte supplements if you’re really feeling saucy. The menu is served from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on April 1, and the cost is $55 per person or free for children 12 and younger.
RPM Steak: A la carte Easter brunch and dinner are on hand all day long, from noon until 10:00 p.m. on April 1. Guests can look for standout dishes like spring lamb chops, Japanese beef, olive beef and RPM Private Reserve 90-day rib-eye, among others.
III Forks Prime Steakhouse: Celebrate the holiday with a special Easter prix fixe at this downtown steakhouse.
