It’s coming. That wonderful (hopefully warm) spring day ideal for reconnecting with family, friends and all the season’s best tastes: sweet strawberries, tender asparagus, and savory spring lamb, for starters.
For many families, Easter brunch is an annual tradition that lets everyone graze on their favorites—while giving the family chef a break. So, Stepping Stone fans, here are some suggestions for Easter brunch to keep everyone out of the kitchen, eating well and staying close to our South Denver area homes. Don’t forget to make your reservations—restaurants are, well, hopping this time of year.
Two tasty destinations are right in Parker. Trapper’s Chophouse is hosting an Easter brunch that features a prime rib and honey ham carving station, plus other options like Eggs Benedict, smoked salmon, bagels and fresh green salads. It’s on the top floor of the Holiday Inn, so you’ll have mountain and city views to savor too.
Elev. 5900, right on Mainstreet, offers a Sunday lunch/brunch menu with lots of options for the whole family. While the chef was trained at Le Cordon Bleu, he’s also a dad, so his kids’ menu targets youngsters with faves like mac and cheese and spaghetti, while parents feast on their own pastas, risottos, pulled pork, and Easter specialties like prime rib.
Lots of other choices are within a mere 15-minute drive.
Here are three to check out. YaYa’s Eurobistro ramps up its amazing regular Sunday buffet for Easter. Enjoy bottomless mimosas along with crab legs, prime rib, pastas, veggie sides, stuffed French toast, and other breakfast favorites. For a truly one-of-a-kind atmosphere, try The Perfect Landing next to Centennial Airport. Fans of flight will be mesmerized by the small aircraft taking off and landing while everyone digs into breakfast and lunch favorites such as Virginia Beach crab cakes and eggs, biscuits and gravy, blackened salmon, and burgers, along with some special Easter additions to the menu.
Finally, La Sandia at Park Meadows is another option known for its fresh, elevated interpretations of Mexican specialties. Brunch includes huevos rancheros, steak and eggs, Mexican chocolate waffles, and more Easter-inspired selections. All choices can be nicely partnered with Bloody Marias and tropical fruit margaritas.
