Easter is this Sunday, and normally, we’d be recommending where to make a reservation for your brunch or dinner feast. But even though dining rooms are quiet, there are still restaurants offering festive options for takeout and delivery, from hollandaise-drenched brunch to exciting duck dinners. Or this could be an opportunity to cook up your own celebration at home, picking out a big beautiful roast and cute chocolate bunnies. Either way, here’s how to celebrate Easter in San Francisco, given the circumstances. Because no matter how dark these days might be, it’s still spring in Northern California, and we’ve got the sweetest asparagus of the year at the farmers’ market.
Easter Meals for Takeout and Delivery
Plow usually draws long lines for breakfast and brunch, so it’s kind of a rare treat to get their crispy potatoes dropped off. Eggs Benedict, smoked salmon toast, and buttermilk biscuits are all festive.
Where to Find the Big Beautiful Roasts
Outside of salmon season, McFarland Springs trout is always a treat, normally on menus at Petit Crenn, Cala, and more. TwoXSea seafood company is now offering free shipping on orders over $50.
Even if you can’t get a smoked duck from the Morris, you can still order a duck directly from the farm. Liberty Ducks normally supplies directly to restaurants, including Mister Jiu’s and the Progress, but now, you can order a fat duck direct to your doorstep.
Journeyman Meat Co. has a reputation for the sweetest smoked ham, which can now be ordered online through Cream Co.
For a gorgeously marbled leg of lamb, Stemple Creek Ranch is taking online orders for their grass-fed, grass-finished meat.
