Going Lamb

Adorable animals are on the menu this Easter Sunday

Is Christ risen? That's not for us to say.

What matters most to us is the tasty ovine creatures that have been slaughtered to celebrate His resurrection. Here's where to pull up a chair this Sunday:

Seasonal
It's a three-course feast at this Michelin-starred spot, serving ramp soup, white asparagus salad, spätzle with wild mushrooms, and a luscious Colorado lamb shoulder with couscous and fennel.
$59 prix fixe. 132 W. 58th St. (6th Ave.), Midtown (212-957-5550)

DBGB Kitchen & Bar
Why, hello, vadouvan-crusted lamb leg! The French-inspired curry mix pairs up with roasted heirloom carrots and a rhubarb tart at this informal afternoon brunch.
$27 prix fixe brunch. 299 Bowery (Houston St.), Bowery (212-933-5300)

David Burke Kitchen
In addition to roast lamb leg, this Sunday brunch offers suckling pig and salmon, maple bacon, and chocolate egg cups for the kiddies. (Also you.)
$49 prix fixe brunch. 23 Grand St. (6th Ave.), Soho (212-201-9119)

Rosemary's
Take your pick of lamb sausage ragu and poached egg over housemade pappardelle or porchetta with apple mostarda, either for brunch or dinner, à la carte or prixe fixe. Finish up with marshmallow chicks and tipsy egg decorating on the roof, if that's your steez.
$35 brunch, $50 dinner. 18 Greenwich Ave. (W. 10th St.), Greenwich Village (212-647-1818)

Tocqueville
If Mom's in town, do Easter by way of southern France: Tocqueville's little lamb is a braised shank perched atop white beans and broccoli rabe, with a backup band of truffled parm grits and apricot bellinis.
$85 prix fixe. 1 E. 15th St. (Broadway), Union Square (212-647-1515)
