For Christians, Sunday is Easter. That means (masked) visits with the Easter Bunny, (socially distant) egg hunts, and maybe takeout brunch or dinner? Or maybe it’s in a restaurant if everyone is safe. Either way, food will be involved.
Here are some Easter options you might want to consider from restaurants across town (this is not a comprehensive list):
a’Bouzy: If you’re looking to celebrate at home, for $69, get an ounce of DR Delicacy Premium Sturgeon Caviar with accoutrements and a bottle of Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Reserve NV. Pre-order by calling 713-772-6899. Those looking to dine-in on Sunday can do so from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for brunch, and from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. for dinner.
The Annie Cafe & Bar: The famous restaurant from Berg Hospitality Group and Robert Del Grande will be serving standard brunch and dinner menus on Easter (so you can have tortilla soup, crab tostadas, king crab, and lamb ragu), but there also will be specials. You can also order for pickup.
Bludorn: The revered restaurant is starting Sunday brunch service on Easter with a three-course prix fixe menu ($75 per person, $25 per child age 9 and younger). Dishes include oysters every way; smoked salmon on rosti potato, with crème fraîche and salmon roe; a monte cristo; a dry-aged burger; shrimp and grits; eggs Benedict; and pancakes three ways (banana, candied bacon, pecan). There’ll be plenty of pastries, boozy brunch cocktails, and live music, too. Brunch starts at 11 a.m. Regular brunch service continues starting April 11.
Craft Pita: The Mediterranean restaurant is teaming up with Truth BBQ for an awesome pickup package. Get 1.5 pounds of Truth BBQ smoked lamb shoulder, a quart of Lebanese rice, a half pan of fattoush salad, a pint of hummus, two loaves of pita, a pint of cucumber yogurt, and four maamoul cookies. The package feeds four; order here.
Etoile Cuisine et Bar: The restaurant will offer a three-course meal for brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Easter. Entrées include poached eggs Benedict, roasted leg of lamb, and braised beef short ribs. $54 per adult, $25 per child with a special menu. Tax and gratuity extra. For more, click here.
