Try as you might, you can’t live off hot cross buns and chocolate eggs for four days. And anyway, if you’re not leaving the city, there’s no better way to spend a four-day weekend than catching up with friends over a meal. Here are some new places and not-so-new favourites that are open this weekend in the city, north, south east, west and along the bay.
