Whether you managed to stay true to your lenten vows or not this year, Easter offers plenty of opportunities for even the most pious to indulge. This Sunday, treat yourself to one of these fabulous restaurants that feature mouth-watering Easter specials.
Lincoln – This “Honest Abe” themed restaurant with floors made out of pennies offers an eclectic brunch on Easter Sunday. Fill up on ricotta doughnuts and short rib hash, or for a taste of local flavor, try the Maryland crab benedict. The two course brunch also includes a mimosa or Bloody Mary of course, so you can celebrate properly. The brunch costs $55, but is just $21 for kids 12 and under.
Art and Soul – Acclaimed Chef Art Smith aims to bring in Easter with a menu stacked with American comfort food classics, such as the chicken and waffles with crispy fried chicken atop a belgian waffle served with hot maple syrup. There will also be a customizable egg station where you can craft your fantasy omelette. The food will run you $58 ($25 for kids 12 and under), but it does not include drinks.
Zaytinya – Mindful of its roots, José Andres’ Zaytinya will provide a specialized brunch on Easter Sunday, as well as on April 12 in celebration of the Greek Easter. The Mediterranean-inspired brunch is composed of “springtime ingredients” and will cost $35. On April 4, the restaurant will also host Agorá, something of a small festival with an outdoor market and costumed Spartan warriors.
Graffiato – The brunch menu at Graffiato is incredible: if kielbasa hash and apple pie stuffed French toast don’t appease your appetite, we don’t know what will. Specifically for Easter, the restaurant also offers specials such as the sweet pea frittata and the shrimp and grits with Old Bay beure blanc. The brunch lasts from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., so take advantage of those bottomless mimosas while you can!
Sonoma – Even if you’re busy with church or hunting for eggs for the first half of your Easter Sunday, you still don’t have to miss out on a decadent brunch. Sonoma’s got you covered with a brunch that lasts all day from 11 a.m. 8 p.m. Chef James Marroquin finds room for incredible items such as the lobster omelette or the warm crab salad on the three course prix fixe menu. The brunch costs $49 per person and bottomless drinks will cost you an additional $15.
