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, April 21, 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”: classic, chorizo, sojouk, and cured salmon, and all of the other brunchy eggs too.
- Cafe Nola . Nola’s breakfast menu is one of the best, imo. They have great reviews for their brunch. Lox Benedict, Italian Benedict, and Vegan Scramble are unique to Nola.
- The Wine Kitchen. Our favorite restaurant. Karen: I love the Maryland Benedict. Chris: the Steak and Eggs.
- JoJo’s Restaurant & Tap House has a great brunch. The bar has happy hour prices all day Sunday. The Benedicts: Classic, Crab, and Southwest Steak. (Can you tell I have a thing for Benedict?)
- Brewer’s Alley. They have a Grand Easter Buffet, it’s appropriately named. The have Herb Crusted Leg of Lamb, Prime Rib and Spiral Ham, and a Cold Table and Hot Table. It’s a lot of food.
- Ayse Meze Lounge. Their Sunday brunch is spun with their unique Greek and Mediterranean flair. Bloody Mary’s are $3. 👀
- The Red Horse Restaurant. They have a special Easter menu from 11:30 to 8:00 pm. Shrimp Scampi, Rack of Lamb.
- Silver Diner serves a wonderful brunch every day. Amazing Omelettes. Fresh and local.
- Vintage in New Market. Sunday Brunch from 10 am to 3 pm. High reviews for their shrimp and grits. (We went for Valentine’s Day Dinner and it was fantastic!)
- Maryland National Golf Club. Besides the regular Sunday Brunch, Easter Brunch is huge. 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. You do need to reserve your seats early.
- 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!
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!
