Easter brunch in a restaurant is a truly wonderful thing. It gets you out of the house with friends and family without the mess. It also helps the cause of not getting worms from picking at the uncooked ham all day. It’s a win/win! And this weekend I am lucky enough to have family visiting me from the northeast. My little brother, (well he’s over 6 feet, so younger is the correct term), is coming into Kentucky for the very first time and with all of these excellent restaurants to choose from it’s going to be hard! Where do you think I should go? Here’s the breakdown:
