Spring has technically been here for weeks already, but it's not official until Easter comes around.
The time to pull out those pastels, ribbons, and bows is just around the corner, which means you'll need somewhere to go when you're dressed for the day.
Whether you're looking to get in on a light brunch, a big all-you-can-eat brunch, or a celebratory dinner, options abound in South Florida.
Here are some more Easter specials in Broward and Palm Beach counties.
