Our next holiday is right around the corner, and we have suggestions for everything from chocolate eggs and bunnies to marzipan lambs, and classic Easter brunch or dinner. Also, check out our list of the traditional Easter Egg Hunts happening around the borough this week.

 

Candy and Pastries

Buttermilk Bakeshop

Li-Lac Chocolates
