Easter Sunday is traditionally a time for families to reconnect and gather for a good meal at home.

Dozens of Chicago-area restaurants are offering a special Easter Sunday brunch, including "The Southern" in Chicago's Bucktown neighborhood. Executive Chef Cary Taylor satisfies with a menu that raises the bar.

Influenced by his southern background, Taylor uses ingredients from local farmers and sustainable sources for dishes like fried green tomatoes, Johnny cakes with chow chow and Charleston-style crab cakes. For bigger appetites, expect to find soul-satisfying braised pork shank and grilled shrimp with grits.

For Easter Sunday brunch, "The Southern" is offering Charleston Benedict, Shrimp and Grits, Biscuits and gravy, Spiced Donuts and many other southern favorites. On the 11 a.m. show, Chef Taylor is demonstrating the Charleston Benedict.
