It’s almost Easter Sunday and we all know what that means: time to eat and eat and eat. Also, Cadbury Creme Eggs will be on sale on Monday! In case you’re not lucky/cool enough to be invited to our mom’s massive Easter soiree in Roslindale and you don’t especially feel like cooking for yourself, here are three very fine options for your Sunday meal.
•Meritage will be offering their standard brunch menu from 10:30am-2:30pm, featuring crave-worthy dishes such as smoked sea scallops with grilled red onions. Every guest will get a free glass of champagne for a festive toast. Brunch costs $65 for adults and $26 for the little ones. Call (617) 439-3995 to reserve.
•At Sel De La Terre, Easter takes on a distinctly Provencal flavor with an a la carte brunch menu featuring treats like an omelette of asparagus, chimay and basil; sweet pepper, onion and potato hash. Brunch runs from 10am-3pm and reservations may be made by calling (617) 720-1300.
•We’ve always felt that the ideal time for Easter dinner is 3pm, but oddly, most restaurants offer only Easter brunch. Leave it to UpStairs on the Square to rectify the situation. They’ll be offering supper in the aptly named Soiree Room until 6pm featuring dishes like soup au pistou with dinosaur kale and chorizo. The meal costs $65 for adults and $32.50 for children. Call (617) 864-1933 to save your place.
