With Easter less than a week away on Sunday, April 21, it's time to get hopping on restaurant reservations. While popular spots like Petite 4 and Cottonwood Grille are already sold out, there are still plenty of seats available in top-notch dining rooms across Boise. Some of our favorite brunch destinations are going ham (pun intended) for Easter, while others, like 36th Street Bistro, BACON, Bittercreek Alehouse, Bonefish Grill, Fork, Red Feather, Riverside Grill and Trillium, are sticking to tried-and-true menus, often with the addition of an Easter special or two. Here's a shortlist of those pulling out all of the edible stops—and we suggest calling sooner rather than later.
