- We're not promising this kind of weather.
In case the giant bins of M&M's and jellybeans in the grocery store and the overabundance of fish dishes on local restaurant menus weren't a giveaway, Easter is just around the corner. That means that many of us will do two things April 12 that we probably won't do for another 12 months, go to church and eat something called "brunch."
While often paired with the religious holiday, brunch is thankfully a secular affair. Even better it's usually served with a heaping of bacon and a side of booze (well, champagne at least).
According to an informal survey we did this past week, you won't find many traditional fixed-price or fixed-menu brunches around town this Easter, although both McMenamins and Seasons are offering the full experience. But we confirmed that many of your favorite breakfast spots will be offering some specialty menu items and taking reservations (to some degree) on Easter Sunday. Here's a rundown of some of the highlights.
