Easter Sunday might just be the best brunch day in the world. It’s the beginning of spring, so vegetables that heretofore were of low quality and expensive are suddenly abundant and delicious and Lent is over, so you can indulge in whatever you like. Our own mother happens to make make an excellent Southern, artery-clogging brunch, which includes ham basted with Dr. Pepper and lots of vodka tonics, but if your family is less kitchen-inclined, there are a plethora of choices at Hub restaurants. Here are three of the best:
For a very high-end Easter, check out the brunch at Hampshire House. $55 gets you a three-course tasting menu, which runs from 12:00-6:00. Dishes like Roquefort and Walnut Crusted Beef Tenderloin might not be what you grew up eating, but, hey, times of rebirth include your taste buds, right? Call (617) 227-9600 for reservations.
Is it just us, or are buffets always a little bit fun? Find out at Copia where the brunch menu has a decidedly Italian bent. $40 isn’t too bad for all you can eat from 11:00-4:00. Call (617) 242-6393 to save a place.
If you’re like us, you like your Easter supper simple and heavy. The brunch at Bob’s Southern Bistro offers just that at the bargain price of $23.95. Bonus: They start serving at 9:00 A.M. Because it’s never too early for Cheese Grits and Sweet Potato Pie. Reservations can be made by calling (617) 536-6204.
