Not able to make it back home for Easter service and brunch at Grandma’s house with the family? Here are five of the best places to enjoy Easter brunch right here in NYC.
PC: Luxury Attache
Chefs Club in Nolita, one of our favorite Manhattan locales with an awesome environment and even better ambiance, will be offering an Easter brunch buffet this weekend. The menu will include festive dishes such as deviled eggs with trout roe, roast leg of lamb in hay, Bloody Marys and Bellinis, plus much more. The buffet will be priced at $85 per person, with a $25 option for children 10 and under. The buffet starts at noon and the restaurant is taking reservations.
Humboldt & Jackson
PC: Edible Brooklyn
This Brooklyn bar and event center run by restauranteur Bill Reed is a popular Williamsburg locale with affordable, yet artfully crafted food options. As our favorite option for those on a budget, Humboldt & Jackson will be offering an Easter brunch buffet for only $15.99. The menu includes:
- Sour cream and nettle scrambled eggs
- Garlic mashed potatoes and ham steak
- Roasted market vegetables
- Candied bacon strips
- Biscuits with mile-high gravy
- Table waffles with whipped cream and honey
- Cinnamon bun bread pudding
- Carrot cake
- Yogurt with granola and fresh fruit
For the price, the menu offering is huge. Plus, we would honestly pay the $16 just for the candied bacon. Throw in cinnamon bun bread pudding, biscuits, and mile-high gravy and its really a no-brainer.

If you feel like lavishing yourself this weekend, Easter brunch at the Rainbow Room should definitely be on your radar. The special Easter brunch menu will be offering elegant dishes such as smoked salmon and caviar deviled eggs, Maine lobster and American caviar deviled eggs, and carrot cake pancakes. The restaurant will be taking reservations for the brunch feast from 11:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The meal will cost you $125, but that’s a small price to pay for the one-of-a-kind menu offering prepared by Executive Chef Robert Aikens. For entertainment, Avalon Jazz Band and Vy Higginsen’s Harlem Gospel Choir will be performing.
Tavern on the Green
