Easter...dine out or cook dilemma

abduction51 | Apr 8, 2009 01:13 PM

I've checked the I apologize if this seems redundant.

I'm at odds as to what to do for Easter...either go out for either brunch or dinner or cook.

The problem with going out is I don't know which restaurants in the area (around Woodridge) would be good to go to with a child (6 yr) and that won't cost too much (less than $25 a person). I've checked open table but have gotten no where. I would prefer a buffet type setting since it's easier on the child-factor with him being able to choose exactly what he wants to eat. Riva sounds interesting but I'm afraid it's out of price range. Allaguer's doesn't have any tables open at brunch and I think it might be too upscale for a 6 yr. old. I am willing to drive a little but not a ton.

If I choose to cook I would like to make a ham...the problem is that I don't want to buy a huge ham...just enough for 2 adults and 1 child about 2-3 lbs. Any one know where I can find or "downsize" a ham in the area?

Thanks in advance!
