Where to indulge in some spring feasting this April

While chocolate is clearly the food hero of Easter, it’s not the only thing to get excited about eating during the season. Easter is a celebration of the beginning of spring and all the bountiful produce that comes with it: roast lamb, spring greens, hot cross buns, Simnel cake and more. Many London restaurants are offering special Easter menus and dishes across the Bank Holiday weekend – we highlight the best here.
