Easter Brunch in DC?

“Dear PoPville,

Wondering if you have any tips for Easter brunch in DC? My husband and I are newlyweds with no family in the area and looking for something festive.”

Hmm I got an email for “Zaytinya is offering $35 prix-fixe brunches on April 5th and April 12th for both Western and Greek Easters, featuring springtime ingredients to welcome the warm weather.”

And from Hill Country BBQ:

“The Market will be open on Easter Sunday during regular hours starting at 11:30am. In addition to the regular pit-smoked menu offerings, they’ll have a special Apricot-rubbed Duck Breast available at the meat counter and an Easter Egg & Potato Salad on the sides counter. The bar will also be offering the Bluebonnet Cocktail, a refreshing mix of Bombay Sapphire, fresh lemon, blueberries and agave nectar. The Easter Bunny will be hopping through the Market throughout the day to greet families & pass out treats, and there will be 100 eggs hidden around the restaurant with coupons for goodies that kids of all ages can enjoy!”

Anyone go to good Easter brunch last year?

    The Willard Hotel has a gorgeous Easter brunch. Champagne cocktails, a piano player, a gorgeous dining room and there is a kids room with finger food for any little ones to go to if they are bored and want to watch cartoons or color Easter eggs . Oh and the Easter Bunny makes an appearance too!

    Why are Easter bunnies so freaking creepy??

  • Ardeo had a very good Easter brunch a few years ago… bottomless mimosa and 3 courses for $40 I think. And then you could take in a movie at the Uptown across the street!

  • We had a great time at Bar Charley for Easter brunch after mass last year.

  • One of my favorites for Easter Brunch, tho pretty ‘spensive, is Cafe Milano — the raw bar, the pastas, the carving stations were all delicious!

    I think the most festive restaurant around Easter time is Filemenia in Georgetown — the decor is over the top and the pastas and the cheesecakes are all quite good. A fun date night if you haven’t been. I can’t speak for their brunch however. But you’ll want a reservation because it’s very busy and quite popular with the tourons this time of year.

  • *Filomena, I mean. Oy!

  • Tabard Inn Restaurant had a nice Easter brunch when I went with my family a few years ago.

  • Gospel Brunch at the Hamilton. Festive and delicious!

  • It’s been a few years since I went but 1789 does a nice Easter Brunch. I don’t know how “festive” it is, as since it is 1789, the setting is a more formal thing but the food is very good. It is expensive though.

  • Boqueria will be open, and their brunch is fantastic.

    The (hidden) Ritz Carlton in Georgetown on South Street is really pretty and does a great Easter brunch.

  • Bistrot Lepic in Georgetown. One of the best brunches I’ve had anywhere. Pricey but worth it:
