Easter Eats


In a quandary about where to dine on Easter Sunday (on March 27 this year)? A few local restaurants will be open and offering special Easter fare. Here are some that contacted me with their offerings.

Tuscany (2832 E. 6200 South, 801-277-9919, TuscanySLC.com) will host an Easter Brunch from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Easter Sunday. The buffet-style brunch will include an omelet bar, waffle station, eggs Benedict, honey-glazed ham, Prime rib, a seafood bar, salads and house-made pastries. The cost is $49 for adults; $25 for kids 12 and under.

Fleming's (20 S. 400 West, 801-355-3704, FlemingsSteakHouse.com) Easter Brunch is $39 per guest and includes a wide selection of starters, entrées, sides and desserts. Among them are potato-leek soup, porcini-crusted Prime rib, Brentone omelet, baked brioche French toast, Callebaut white chocolate pudding and much more, including specialty cocktails.

At Texas de Brazil (50 S. Main, 385-232-8070, TexasdeBrazil.com) they're "carving" a new Easter tradition by celebrating the holiday with their regular dinner menu, nonalcoholic beverages, and dessert for the reduced price of $39.99. The dinner includes the full-on churrascaria experience of continually rotating meats carved at your table, a 50-60 item salad buffet, and for Easter only, specialty breakfast items, egg dishes, bacon and assorted pastries.

Grand America (555 S. Main, 801-258-6708, GrandAmerica.com) is offering an Easter Bunny Afternoon Tea ($28) with an Easter bunny appearance, along with their Grand Easter Brunch in the Garden Café ($55/adults; $27.50 for kids ages 5-12; children 4 and under free). Brunch will include live music and brunch favorites from chef Fernando Soberanis and his talented team. In addition to traditional Easter fare, there will also be a seafood/sushi station, carving station with Prime rib, lamb and roasted ham, barbecue station, antipasto station, crêpe station, juice bar, dessert station, kid's station and much more, including cocktails, wine and beer available starting at 11:30 a.m.

Quote of the week: "I was eating in a Chinese restaurant downtown. There was a dish called Mother and Child Reunion. It's chicken and eggs. And I said, 'I gotta use that one.'"
