Easter dining options

lamb

Three new options, all in the Ds.

Da Mimmo in Little Italy is offering a three-course, $37 brunch all day on Sunday, from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m.

Dimitri's International Grill sent along its Easter menu. There's only limited space available (from 3 to 5 p.m.), maybe because the menu is so affordable, but the Catonsville restaurant is running its Easter menu on Saturday, too.

Dionysus Restaurant & Lounge in Midtown will be open for brunch from 10 a.m until 4 p.m.

I know there must be more Easter options than what I have listed below. You still got time; please send listings to richard.gorelick@baltsun.com

And if you find youself with a lamb and time on your hands, Susan Reimer tells you about some easy approaches to lamb.

We have reservations at Michael's Cafe on York Road in Timonium across from the fairgrounds. Brunch is $25 and, presuming it is the same as it was a couple years ago, will have an omelette section, salads, various side dishes and main courses, desserts, peel and eat shrimp (I think I recall that) and I know they added an oyster bar this year. They also have a dinner option later in the day. We took my Mom in a wheelchair a couple years ago and they treated her (and us) very well.

Matthews 1600 on Frederick Road in Catonsville has a sign outside that they are serving brunch, but when I called a couple weeks ago they couldn't supply any details about price or if there was anything special for Easter, so we went with Michael's. If you're gonna put up a sign, know what you are offering, for crying out loud!
