Patch Picks: Newton Spots for Easter Brunch

While Easter is still ten days away, brunch reservations tend to fill up fast. So here are five Newton locales where a leisurely midday meal can be enjoyed. Go after church, before egg hunting or just whenever the family wakes up.

– With a shrimp bar, meat carving stations, custom-made omelets, assorted salads and side dishes and a full dessert bar, this extensive buffet is an elegant place to bring the family. The buffet is decorated with ice carvings, and the Charles River is ice-free so come enjoy the food and the view.

 - The Biltmore offers brunch every Saturday and Sunday (and Monday holidays), so Easter will be no exception. Dig into the “Brunch Bites” appetizers, enjoy a tasty adult beverage or just indulge in a Breakfast Pizza (whole wheat flatbread with tomatoes, basil, garlic, fresh mozzarella, pancetta, caramelized onions and two sunny-side up eggs).

– Easter brunch features include “Green Eggs” and Ham (a take on eggs benedict with an herb hollandaise) and  “Monte Christo” French toast (a sweet-and-savory version featuring brioche, smoked ham and maple-pecan butter). Regular brunch menu items such as egg dishes, salads, sandwiches and brunch cocktails will also be available.

- Italian and American brunch specialties are served every week at Appetito. Highlights include the Aragosta Frittata (eggs with New England lobster meat, maple smoked bacon, scallions, Bel Paese cheese, arugula) and the Pane Tostato Banana e Freagolae (challah french toast with rum bananas, strawberries, cream cheese, maple syrup).

After you have dyed “les oeufs,” head over to Aquitaine for a real French brunch.  The Easter menu will include weekly brunch items such as Omelette Alsacienne (omelet with mushrooms, leeks and goat cheese) and Pressed Duck Confit and Gruyere Sandwiches. Specials include Lobster Cakes Benedict and Buttermilk Belgian Waffles.

The names of these restaurants are missing. If someone could put them in, it would make this article exponentially more helpful.
