We’re coming up on yet another pandemic Easter - but this year, restaurants are open for takeout, and indoor and outdoor dining. So if you’re looking for ways to celebrate besides eating a basket full of polarizing candy, you’re in the right place. There are tons of SF restaurants and bakeries offering specials for the holiday, with everything from lamb and hard-boiled eggs to carrot cake donuts. Here are 15 to check out.
For Easter, Lord Stanley has a $325 lamb roast meal kit for four. It comes with roasted potatoes, a rack of lamb and a grilled lamb shoulder, plus a rhubarb and custard tart. If you’re feeling particularly over-the-top, for $400, you can add on “The Ginormous Egg” - a hand-painted, two-foot-tall egg made with 13.5 pounds of chocolate. If you’d rather not spend the equivalent of a car payment on a giant egg, they also have $40 Easter baskets that come with marshmallows, normal-sized chocolate eggs, and macarons. Place your order here for pick up on April 2nd or 3rd.
Noe Valley Bakery always has great holiday-themed desserts, and Easter is no exception. You can get in the holiday spirit by ordering their carrot-shaped sugar cookies, some hot cross buns, mini cupcakes, or a very cute egg-shaped chocolate cake. Walk up, or order ahead online for carryout at either the Noe Valley or West Portal location from now until April 4th.
Che Fico has a few Easter dinner options ranging from $175-$200. Each serves four and you can get either braised lamb shoulder, farro risotto, or stuffed branzino.
