FOR EASTER BRUNCH AT SIENA!

In Italy, the Easter celebration is considered by many to be more important than Christmas. In fact, until the time of Napoleon’s conquest of Italy, in many Italian city states, the new year was not observed after Christmas as it is today, but around Easter.
Today in Italy, Easter Sunday is a time when families gather to renew their ties and to spend a restful day together sharing a family meal.
Easter and the Passover are not just celebrations of our yearly liturgy. They are also celebrations of springtime and the renewal of life — spiritual and natural — that comes every year.
And no Easter feast is complete without a “Paschal Lamb.” As we do for Easter Sunday every year at Siena, we’ll be serving lamb with the classic Italian seasonings.
Happy Easter and to all of our friends! May your springtime and “new year” be filled with joy and health.
