Boston's Best Easter Brunches

Easter falls on Sunday, March 27th this year. Brunch is a wonderful way to connect with family and celebrate the Easter holiday and the arrival of spring. Many restaurants offer a buffet style brunch, while others are ordered from a special prix fixe menu. Easter brunch traditionally includes a special egg dish, but there are many other breakfast items to choose from as well. There are cozy restaurants with comfort food selections, as well as restaurants with scenic views and a more formal atmosphere and menu.
