An Easter weekend inspired by the sea
And just like that, it’s Easter weekend. We are talking about reservations for brunches and outdoor dinners. Among my fully vaccinated friends and relatives in South Florida, I detected a renewed desire to venture out. Even the most cautious make dating plans and dare to talk about late summer trips. It is as if this spring has arrived with a purpose. The boost of the season has me filling my fruit blender for smoothies and my lunch bowl with fresh green salads. It wasn’t the weather that caused it, it was the seasonal vibe.
Our talented collaborator J. Miller, a local food photographer and writer, captured that spirit in her wonderful story and photo âEaster by the Seaâ. It offers a menu that combines quick-cooking chops and veggies on the beachside grill and homemade bites, like our favorite Southern-style devil-style eggs, a chili spread, a potato salad and a dreamy pineapple upside-down cake warming up on the grill. If you prefer to dine out, check out our list of Easter Sunday brunches and dinners.
Notable seafood restaurants
For those looking for a seafood dinner on Good Friday, there are a few new restaurants to consider. There’s Okeechobee Prime Seafood, a brother of Okeechobee Steakhouse, which debuted last month in West Palm Beach. In Delray, Lionfish has been attracting fish lovers since it opened last September. In Palm Beach Gardens, FireFin Grill found its home next to Carmine’s Market in fall 2019. And for light and gourmet seafood bites, there’s Chef Jeremy Bearman’s Fish Bowl food trailer in Rosemary Square. .
Have a good weekend and a happy Easter!
