If you haven't already concocted a menu and ordered the ham/lamb for a home Easter celebration this Sunday, maybe it'd be easier at this point just to go out somewhere? There are, of course, scores of great brunch spots all over town, some with special Easter menus, and several of our favorite restaurants are also adding Easter dishes with prix-fixe specials to their dinner menus. Here's a quick list of some of our suggestions!

Top Picks for Easter Brunch

There are the usual NYC brunch heavy hitters to consider, including: 

But you also might want to check out:

  • The Meatball Shop's brunch menu, available at the Upper East location AND at the original Stanton Street spot as well (starting on Easter Sunday).
  • The boozy brunch at Calle Ocho on the UWS, with free bottomless sangria;
  • The excellent and lovely Rosemary's (sitting area pictured below) in the West Village, which promises several specials and may repeat their roof garden egg-painting activity of last year.

Note: expect even longer than usual waits; Easter Sunday in NYC rivals Mother's Day in the dining out department! Make reservations now.

Extravagant Easter Celebrating

For a more extravagant Easter celebration, feast your eyes (and, subsequently, your belly) on the Lincoln Ristorante brunch and special Easter dinner menu, with a $60 three-course prix-fixe that will get you some of the best food in town. The always first-rate Bar Boulud near Lincoln Center usually trots out some Easter-themed terrines and such. The Butterfly in Tribeca is a great place to sip a few fancy cocktails with your plate of corned beef hash or pancakes (pictured below). 

If you want to really do something different, maybe this is the year you eat brunch on a boat, with World Yacht Easter Cruise, offering a buffet, Easter baskets and bunny photo-ops for the kids and, of course, spectacular views of Manhattan.
