Easter Sunday is almost here!
And now that we've all graduated from Easter baskets and egg hunts (unless your mom still hooks it up, in which case we're totally jealous) it's brunchtime, b*tches.
Whether you're up for some scrumptious eggs or a hopping good mimosa, brunch is the perfect way to celebrate Easter.
So hop on out of your apartment and take this streets this weekend for some holiday celebration.
Here are some of the sweet spots that will help make your spring start off with a splash of color.
1. Little Frog (322 East 86th Street)

Hop up to the Upper East Side for a bistro that's as chic as it is welcoming. This Parisian-inspired eatery features classic French doors, vintage tile and deep tufted “French green” banquets, as well as an authentic and délicieux brunch menu.
For $33 you can get a specialty cocktail and one of their brunch entrees, like their Croque-Madame with baked ham and cheese sandwich gratiné with bechamel and two eggs on top, or the Eater Lamb Trio, served together with lamb jus and English Pea purée. C'est magnifique!
2. Tio Pepe (168 West 4th Street)

Among their Easter brunch plates are selections such as Croquetas de Pollo y Bacalao (chicken and cod croquettes), Cream of Asparagus Soup, Lamb Chops with roasted garlic and Flan al Carmelo. You can also indulge in their selection of charcuterie and cheeses if you're feeling fancy.

Even if you're not a fan of Easter, you can still raise a toast to the start of the spring season rising up in NYC! Grab your GPS and venture over to The Wayfarer, which boasts a wide selection of classic and innovative American fare.
Their seasonal special spring menu includes some refreshing choices like a Maine lobster Benedict with baby kale, a Grilled Lamb BLT with pickled tomatoes and lime yogurt, Challah French Toast topped with fresh apricots and marzipan and even more options you'll have to just discover yourself.
4. La Pulperia (371 West 46th Street)
msritzybitz Lots of love to the Sunday brunch kitchen crew. These boys work tirelessly each week to serve up our 5 Star food at @lapulperianyc Shoutout to @gleam_melaniemills for creating the most beautiful long lasting product that prevents me from being an ashy mess every time I'm performing! #brunch #dragbrunch #teamblended #dragqueen #gleamalicious
You're going to get a lot more than just a robust easter brunch at this Latin-American fusion eatery. In addition to lip-smacking food and a $25 unlimited brunch cocktails option, your drag queen hostess Ritzy Bitz puts on a show like none other, backflipping her way past your table as the dollar bills fly.
This high-energy brunch is a staple of the Hell's Kitchen scene and always features hysterical hijinks to go along with your food, such as their vegetarian Burrata, with spinach jalapeño pesto and garlic aioli, or the Puperia Omelette with caramelized onions, roasted red peppers and chihuahua cheese.
5. Bevy (153 West 57th Street)
lavivienyc One of my fav places to hangout with my girlfriends in my hood is the @parkhyattny . Was so sad that they closed down their restaurant- The Back Room last year. But now it's come back better than ever and renamed as @bevynyc . Had a pre-opening dinner last week and the entire experience was fantastic!!! Totally blew me away!! They offer luxe new American fare with a French touch, and lots of veg-centric dishes along with seasonal meat/seafood main courses, which combines artistry presentation and freshest ingredients crafted into amazing culinary offerings. And their service was top notch. Highly recommend for special occasions and celebratory dinners. . . . . . . . . . . #foodlove #nycrestaurants #realfood #foostagram #luxury #foodporn #eattheworld #nomnom #lovefood #foodblogger #foodlove #foodstylist #realfood #foostagram #foodphotography #foodilysm #eatinggood #eatme #eatingnewyork #forkfeed #lifestyleblogger #vscofood #tryitordiet #bestfoodworld #yougottaeatthis #myfab5 #nycblogger #finedining #bevynyc #lavivienycfinedining
A new American restaurant in the scenic Central Park South neighborhood, Bevy is true to its name with a healthy helping of hearty dishes that are sure to make sure you leave here more stuffed than a candy egg this Sunday.
The newly remodeled and re-envisioned restaurant at the Park Hyatt New York is hosting a classy Easter lunch with spring-inspired dishes that will include Foie Gras terrine with rhubarb jam, Steamed Jumbo Asparagus with almond vinaigrette, and Jamison Farm lamb. You think you fancy, huh?
6. L&W Oyster Co. (254 5th Avenue)
If you're up for some fish on your Easter Sunday, look no further than brunch on 5th Avenue at L&W, which whips up scrumptious seafood dishes to make for a stellar Easter brunch. And if that wasn't enough, hostesses Gilda Wabbit and Gina Tonic entertain and serenade you from noon to 3 p.m.
While these talented queens serve up fresh tilapia on a silver platter, L&W supplies you with innovative options like an Angry Crab Benedict, with spicy crab cake, poached egg and citrusy yuzu hollandaise. And don't you dare leave without trying their French Toast Bites with Nutella. Trust us. You'll regret it.
7. Greenwich Steakhouse (62 Greenwich Avenue)
greenwichsteakhouse Chef Victor Chavez brings to you a dining experience unlike a typical NYC steakhouse. Join us tonight to experience true fine dining.
If an afternoon brunch isn't your thing and you still don't want to be in charge of food this Sunday, feel free to treat yourself and make a reservation at the swanky yet sumptuous Greenwich Steakhouse. From their too-cool blue chairs to the immaculate steak selections, it might as well be Christmas.
The restaurant's $59 price fix menu includes your choice of starters, like Shaved Baby Artichoke Salad or Sweet Pea Ravioli, while main course options include Leg of Lamb with fingerling potatoes and baby carrots, Filet Mignon with Bordelaise sauce and sautéed spinach. Just leave room for dessert!
