Hash Over: Easter is Coming, a Time of Spritutality, Renewal and Brunch

Another holiday is upon us, City of Aters. It's that time of year when you put on your Sunday best, dye perfectly good eggs, receive a basket full of goodies from an over-sized bunny, and of course, stuff yourself with food until you feel like you're about to explode, among other traditional Easter festivities you might engage in. We can't exactly help out with the egg-hiding part, but let us suggest a few places you might want to visit for Easter brunch on Sunday, April 4.

Tre Amici Prime Steakhouse & Seafood will have a four-course prix fixe menu for either $34 or $46, depending on what size prime rib you choose . From , you can enjoy bacon-wrapped scallops, lobster bisque, prime rib with loaded baked potato, and pumpkin pie cheesecake. Not too shabby.

Executive chef Anthony Bombaci at Nana will also be offering a four-course brunch from For $79 for adults and $24 for children, chef Bombaci will feature Bulgarian yogurt, ahi tuna tartar, baby spinach salad, pan-roasted duck breast, and cheesecake ice cream, among other dishes.

If you want to go for a less expensive and spicier brunch option, check out Blue Mesa Grill for their $16.95 for adults (and that includes Champagne and mimosas) and $6.95 for children special menu. A few items: adobe pie stuffed with chicken, cheese, and roasted peppers, omelet bar, huevos rancheros, and raspberry cajeta pudding.Tasty.

You might want to celebrate Easter Sunday at Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck. Of course, it would be sans Wolfgang, but executive chef Sara Johannes will be there. Chef Johannes will feature a la carte brunch menu with organic chicken dumplings, crispy shrimp and lobster springrolls, American-style Kobe beef burger, and Maine lobster club sandwich, along with other items. They had us at chicken dumplings.
