Where to Take Your Mother-in-Law for Easter Brunch in Dallas

Easter brunch bunnies not for consumption (provided by flikr.com)

My favorite memory of Easter is not actually mine. It’s David Sedaris’. Way back when Sedaris was in France, he enrolled in an university to study French. The instructor once asked the class, “And what does one do on Easter? Would anyone like to tell us?”

This is when Sedaris attempted to explain to a class full of international students about the Easter bunny, while his peers, clearly mind-boggled by the idea that an entire holiday could be devoted to a scary rabbit, sat waiting for his answer. “Well, sure,” Sedaris said in broken French, “he come in the night when one sleep on a bed. With a hand, he have the basket, like for a bread.”

Creepy, eh?

Sorry, that has nothing to do with the following selection of restaurants where you can go for Easter brunch. Read the rest of the transcript on This American Life while you scroll through this handy list. I’ll also keep updating, so check back until April 8.

Jump like the Easter rabbit.
