Ham, lamb, fresh veggies and, of course, colorful eggs. While there is still time to plan and cook a meal - and it's so nice that we can all gather again as the pandemic wanes - you may want to celebrate spring without the chores of cooking and cleaning up afterward. So, as Easter approaches, Chattanooga restaurants are preparing to open their doors and greet guests with some of your favorite Easter dishes.

Here are a few places around town that are planning something special, from a relaxing Easter brunch to a beautiful Easter dinner after those all-important egg hunts.

Restaurants are expected to be busy this Easter Sunday, April 17, according to the National Restaurant Association. Best advice? Make reservations as soon as possible.
