Easter is just around the corner, and while many families typically host Easter dinner at home, there are a large number of folks who enjoy going out to eat during the holiday. With that in mind, we’ve put together our annual list of The Best NJ Restaurants Open on Easter.

These event listings include a number of restaurants and eateries that are offering both brunch and dinner, so those headed out on Easter Sunday will have a wide selection of places to choose from throughout the day. From all of us at Best of NJ, we wish you a Happy Easter!
