Easter Brunch Anyone?
Frederick Maryland is a Foodie Paradise. There are so many great restaurants to choose from, many non-chain establishments for a variety of tastes. With Easter coming up in a few days, I went in search of a good place for Easter Brunch. Several of these restaurants regularly serve Sunday brunch so some of these are not particularly “Easter Brunch”.
Note: MAKE RESERVATIONS!
Here is what I discovered:
- Dutch’s Daughter Restaurant. High on many lists, including the brunch. Dutch’s is know for their crab cakes and their seafood in general, including Maryland cream of crab soup, crab dip and a crab omelet. Other buffet options are carved prime rib, baked ham, blackened honey glazed salmon, Dutch’s chicken, vegetarian pasta, creamed chipped beef and biscuits, bacon and sausage. Brunch gets lots of stars on every count.
- Volt has a three-course brunch for $35, a five course tasting menu for $55, with an additional beverage pairing for $35. That’s pretty amazing if you’ve ever eaten there for dinner.
- Isabella’s. The Saturday and Sunday brunch has several creative types of “Benedicts” and all of the other brunch eggs too.
- Cafe Nola . Great reviews for their brunch.
- The Wine Kitchen. Our favorite restaurant. Karen: “Say yes to the Maryland Benedict.” Chris: the Pastrami Benedict.
- JoJo’s Restaurant & Tap House has a great brunch. The bar has happy hour prices all day Sunday.
- Brewer’s Alley. They have a Grand Easter Buffet, it’s appropriately named.
- Ayse Meze Lounge. Their Sunday brunch is spun with their unique Greek and Mediterranean flair.
- The Red Horse Restaurant. They have a special Easter menu. Crab Stuffed Flounder, Rack of Lamb. Wow.
- Silver Diner serves a wonderful brunch every day.
- Vintage in New Market. High reviews for their shrimp and grits.
- Maryland National Golf Club. They have a carving station with glazed ham and brined Turkey breast, a buffet with 14 delicious brunchy items, a dessert station, and a salad station, for those who like to assuage their conscience.
- The Braddock Inn. Here’s the menu from their Facebook Page: *Reservations Required* Prime Rib Au Jus / Roasted Leg of Lamb, Smoked Salmon with dill beurre blanc, Fresh glazed Ham / Cocktail Shrimp, Green beans / Asparagus, Wild rice pilaf / Shells and cheese, Scrambled eggs / Home fries, Bacon / Breakfast sausage, Buttermilk biscuits / Sausage gravy, French toast with strawberry sauce
Fresh fruit salad / Garden salad, Assorted sweet breads and desserts. OMG!
- Wilcom’s Inn has a “bottomless brunch” menu that’s extensive, and mimosas, bloody marys, and sangria. (One of my brother’s favorites)
- Monocacy Crossing. Well known for their Sunday Brunch. It’s not particularly an Easter brunch, but a good one, nevertheless.
- The Comus Inn at Sugarloaf Mountain. An old favorite of many. I recommend the Chesapeake Eggs Benedict. yum!
Here’s something fun: A Jazz Brunch at Beans in the Belfry in Brunswick, with “Jazz Connection”. From 11 am to 2 pm. Read about it in the Frederick NewsPost.
So, no one should have to cook on Easter if they don’t want to!
If I missed one of your favorites, let me know, I’ll add it.
Have a Blessed and Happy Easter!
