New York Since Easter is the day that the entire Roman Catholic Church celebrates... uhh... brunch?... we're going heavy on the brunch content this week. Tuesday, we told you about the best brunches in all of NYC, and today, we've got five one-off, just-for-Easter options, including one serving something called a "Bunny Ball".
NYC's 5 best Easter Sunday brunches
The Sea Fire Grill: Hit this big, Midtown, seafood clubhouse for a three-course Easter prix fixe, with choices like crab cakes, lobster bisque, rock shrimp frittata, and pappardelle with lamb ragu.
Edi & The Wolf: Get your four-course prix fixe on with options like English pea dip (w/ flatbread crisps and ricotta salata), roasted lamb (w/ mint jus and new potatoes), and deviled Easter eggs topped with far fewer hastily painted baby animals than you're used to. So... speck & horseradish.
East 12th Osteria: This East Village Italian newcomer is one-upping everyone with a FIVE-course brunch prix fixe (for a totally reasonable $35), with options including duck confit mezzaluna, roasted Colorado lamb with baby artichokes, and a dove-shaped Italian Easter cake called the Colomba Pasquale.
Bo's Kitchen and Bar Room: This New Orleans-inspired spot hits all the low country classics, from monkey bread French toast, to biscuits and gravy, to The Emperor's Pancake, which is essentially a big pancake that gets ripped up and dusted with sugar before being topped with cherries that're bourbon-infused. Holy spirit, indeed.
Seafire Grill celebrates the meat of the sea in a sleekly nautical space with a raw bar, apps like lobster bisque w/ cappuccino foam, and mains from lobster stuffed w/ clams to a Montauk swordfish with a lemon-herb frito.
Jumping from the LES to the 'burg, Meatball's countrified spot (old-timey photos, cow paintings, stool seating) is more substantial than the original, as is the bev program.
Indulge in some true Italian meats and cheeses at this Italian Osteria hotspot.
Bo's Kitchen is serving up some good old down south cooking like fried alligator and spiced Louisiana Redfish that makes you feel right at home.
The barn-style interior of Edi & The Wolf captures the causal feel of an Austrian wine-tavern. With its quirky, industrial-chic secret patio and a menu of braised short ribs, wiener schnitzel, and goat cheese ravioli, this Lower East Side joint is unlike any other. Try the Austrian cinnamon sugar-caramelized pancake bites with grapefruit, or get a four-course prix fixe with options like English pea dip (with flatbread crisps and ricotta salata), roasted lamb (with mint jus and potatoes).
