Grass Fed (1721 N. Damen) has a three-course Easter lunch of lamb, salmon, chicken ($25 per person; reservations required).

Longman & Eagle (2657 N. Kedzie) is hosting an adults egg hunt (1pm, $5 admission fee per two-person team) that benefits the Comer Children's Hospital. Bring your own basket; registration required.

If you want to get all classy, Allium at the Four Seasons (120 East Delaware Place) has a rocking buffet complete with a crudo station, charcuterie, Asian fare, lotsa breakfasty stuff, lotsa other stuff and of course, candy.
