4/21/19 O&A NYC FOOD: 7 Great Places For Easter Brunch In NYC

Easter Sunday is renowned for colorful bonnets and Sunday brunch. The late April Easter makes brunch great for Sunday spring afternoon. Here are a few restaurants that offer a special menu for a special day guaranteed to keep you Out and About

Armani Ristorante 717 Fifth Avenue offers aspecial four-course Easter menu ($105) nods at Italian tradition. Deviled eggs evoke rebirth, lamb symbolizes sacrifice, and bread marks the end of Lent. If you’re feeling really festive, you can hit the Easter parade on Fifth Avenue before brunch — or take advantage of the vantage point and watch it from the restaurant.

Pinch Chinese 177 Prince St., New York. Easter brunch gets the Chinese comfort food treatment at Pinch Chinese. Go for the bacon egg and cheese dumplings, Peking duck Benedict, or skirt steak and Sichuan spicy eggs. A $20 add-on gets you 60 minutes of unlimited punch, spritzes, and mimosas.

Brooklyn Cider House (1100 Flushing Ave, Brooklyn), serves brunch from 11am until 3pm, they’ll serve novel brunch cocktails like Ciderosa (fresh OJ and their Bone Dry cider), and ribeye steak and eggs, and a holiday special: braised lamb shoulder with wild rice and spring vegetables. And good news for those with furry friends at home — dogs are welcome to join the festivities on the deck.

Bocaito, 8115 Northern Blvd, Jackson Heights, New York. The Latin fusion cafe’s regular menu (Dominican and Colombian breakfast, brunch paella, piña colada chicken and waffles) will be available, and every entree comes with two cocktails.

The Stone House At Clove Lakes, 1150 Clove Rd, Staten Island, NY. Set back on a little island between the lake and the woods, this literal stone house in Clove Lakes Park makes you feel like you’re in a cozy castle, protected from the outside world by a moat. The large dining room is suitable for bigger groups. Choose between the $35 seated brunch (freshly baked croissants, your choice of entree, sides of bacon, sausage, and home fries, plus cookies and brownies for dessert), or the $42 grand brunch buffet (ham, turkey, eggs, pasta, salads, sides, and a chocolate fountain) this Easter.

The Black Whale 279 City Island Ave, Bronx, NY: The offbeat nautical decor conjures up Cape Cod in the Bronx at this “cute” City Island vet where the inexpensive New American menu includes some notably decadent desserts; fans find the terrific Sunday brunch and lovely back patio equally memorable.
