Make a Reservation for These Easter Brunches

Leave the cooking to the professionals this Easter and make a reservation for your family and friends at one of these delicious brunches.

You won’t go home hungry with Lidia’s brunch, featuring a family-style first course, and your choice of the pasta tasting trio, herb roasted pork shoulder, lamb stufato and more 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The restaurant is also serving its regular dinner beginning at 4 p.m.

Whether you’re craving something sweet, such as French toast, pastries and fresh fruit; savory, like a frittata, mushroom risotto and carved prime rib; or a little bit of both (here’s looking at you, candied bacon), you’ll find it on the Easter menu at Renee Kelly’s Harvest, plus patio seating is available.

Try not to start drooling as we break down Webster House’s offerings: blueberry, roasted pear and apple waffles, crispy crème brulee French toast, prime angus beef tenderloin Benedict, and buttermilk chive biscuits and gravy, just to name a few of the featured dishes. And this is not the time to skimp on sweets—pastry chefs Clare Lapping and Ashley Foy-Price have created a dessert buffet designed especially for the occasion.

Get three courses for $30 at Room 39 Mission Farms’ brunch. Choose from starters including curried carrot and coconut soup, poutine and carpaccio, entrees such as a blueberry goat cheese pancakes, lemon ricotta ravioli and Missouri trout and monkey bread, goat cheesecake and mint chocolates beignets for dessert.

Indulge with a rich brunch at Avenues Bistro. You can enjoy the restaurant’s signature lobster ravioli, chicken cordon bleu and salmon stuffed with crab, lobster and Brie along with breakfast items such as eggs Benedict. Add a bottomless bloody Mary, mimosa or screwdriver for $8. Avenues is also offering carry out package with portions of your favorite dishes for 8 to 10 people ($139) in case you want a family feast at home.

If you’re planning to go the to-go route, take a look at French Market’s carryout options, and don’t forget to order dessert from Dolce Bakery. Its coconut cake is so pretty your other decorations can be minimal.
