The Best Restaurants For Easter Brunch
While any weekend in New York revolves around eggs benedicts and bloody marys, brunch is especially important on Easter Sunday.

Don’t worry – we’ve carefully selected the best restaurants for your special brunch this Sunday…
Focusing on Mediterranean-inspired dishes, Daniel Boulud’s restaurant offers a coastal-themed brunch menu for Easter. For $48, you will get a three-course prix fixe menu, with dishes such as pistachio French toast, spicy green shakshouka and coffee cloud cake with vanilla Chantilly.
La Pecora Bianca: At this beautifully bright Italian restaurant, the three-course prix fixe menu includes both La Pecora Bianca classics and Easter specials. Think mushrooms with egg and pequillo peppers, pappardelle with lamb ragu and affogato for dessert.
Ocean Prime: Featuring its popular prime steaks and seafood-centric dishes, Ocean Prime’s brunch menu includes six Easter specials. To go with your blood orange mimosa, there’s blackened salmon salad with various fruits, crab cake with poached egg and hollandaise, and braised short rib “surf and turf.”

Gotham Bar and Grill: Are your parents in town for Easter? Do you need to impress the in-laws? If you don’t mind spending a little more, the Michelin-starred restaurant Gotham Bar and Grill has you covered with classic American dishes – simple yet perfectly executed.

The Regency Bar & Grill: Sticking to classic American fare, the Upper East Side restaurant is offering signature favorites for Easter brunch, including eggs benedict, buttermilk pancakes with blueberries or chocolate chips, and avocado toast with a cream cheese dill spread.
Harvey at The Williamsburg Hotel: We could spend every weekend at Harvey inside The Williamsburg Hotel – Easter Sunday is certainly no exception. Come for the ambiance, enjoy your deviled eggs with caviar and stay for the impressive line-up of baked goods: madeleines, cinnamon twists, chocolate chip cookies and more…
