This year, a number of London’s best restaurants are taking the hassle out of the day with their deliveries of meal kits and feasts, with multi-course menus of classic Easter dishes and signature specials that highlight local produce. From Townsend’s seasonal leg of lamb to Claridge’s Afternoon Tea with special Easter treats, these are the most luxe Easter restaurant deliveries and meal kits to preorder now.
The classic Picadilly restaurant has created a decadent celebratory Easter meal, complete with full roast dinner, hot cross buns and miniature chocolate Easter eggs. The star of the show is the leg of lamb, marinated with rosemary and garlic and served with a rosemary gravy. The trimmings include seasonal Jersey royal potatoes and Amaretto-glazed butternut squash and parsnips, as well as asparagus vinaigrette. For dessert, there’s an over-the-top English treat of strawberry and Champagne trifle, meaning you can save the hot cross buns and eggs for afternoon tea.
Available for London delivery on 2 and 3 April within an 8 mile radius of Colbert SW1W 8AX. £125 for two people.
The acclaimed restaurant, a collaboration between award-winning chef Ollie Dabbous and Hedonism wines, is offering an impressive seasonal menu for its Easter Weekend package.
The four courses highlight the best of local produce — Wye valley asparagus and ricotta tart, Elderflower cured salmon and roast rump of Herdwick lamb with salsa verde. There’s a special Hide Easter egg for dessert, and an option to add on one of three recommended wines from the restaurant’s impressive selection, too.
Available for delivery within 7 mile radius of Hide from 1 – 4 April, 12pm – 9.30pm. £75 per person
This Easter, the famous hotel is offering two Easter at-home kits. For lunch or dinner, the Claridge’s kitchens have created a seasonal menu of a herb crusted rack of lamb accompanied by globe artichoke, celeriac puree and heritage carrots. For dessert, there’s a special Exotic Egg with vanilla mousse and a pineapple and mango compote. If you have the roast covered, opt for the traditional Afternoon Tea with handmade pastries and a special Easter surprise. Along with the staple scones, eclairs and macaroons, the kit includes a gift of a mini Claridge’s Easter Egg, a hot cross bun and a packet of Claridge’s Tea Blend.
Available for collection and London delivery from 2 – 5 April. Starts at £75 for two people for the roast, and £60 for one person for the Afternoon Tea.
The luxury at-home dining company has created a special three-course menu to elevate your Easter feast. There are three options for each course, including a vegetarian option, and there’s a separate kids menu for little ones, too. Many of the dishes are suitably seasonal, including a roast loin of lamb with potato terrine for a main course, while dessert options are wonderfully decadent, including a special ‘Easter Mess’ featuring a chocolate mousse, apricot puree and cacao meringue with a hidden Easter egg. The menu also includes an amuse bouche, petit fours and a complimentary bottle of wine, and a dedicated concierge team is on hand to source any extras to help decorate your table.
Available for nationwide delivery throughout April. Starts at £195 for two people including wine and free delivery
