Whether you celebrate the holiday or not, Easter Sunday provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy a delicious brunch at one of your favorite restaurants – and in the city of Scottsdale, you’ve got plenty of options. Here are a few of the best places around town to find special menus created exclusively for Easter Sunday.
- El Chorro. El Chorro is famous for its fantastic Sunday brunch, but on Easter Sunday this year, they’re shaking things up. How about some new tastes for the new season? Start off with a hearty Yukon potato salad and end with decadent lavender chocolate-dipped strawberries. Prices are $49 for adults, $16 for kids 12 and under. Children under three eat for free, and brunch is offered from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- Heard Museum. Can you imagine a more unique place for an Easter brunch than a Native American museum? Enjoy a scrumptious meal, lively music and spirited performances at Phoenix’s famous Heard Museum. Brunch is offered from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Adults gain entry for $30 ($25 with museum membership), and kids 12 and under get in for $15. When you visit Scottsdale this year, many great attractions will be competing for your attention, but if you’re into Southwest history and American Indian culture, the Heard is truly something to be seen.
- Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar. On Easter Sunday, Fleming’s opens early at 11:30 a.m., and brunch ends at 3 p.m. Adults can enjoy a fantastic meal for $34.95, and kids 12 and under can eat for $16.95. Brunch consists of three delicious courses (and they all look great). You’ll have your choice of an appetizer, entrée and dessert. There are two locations in the city of Scottsdale.
- Carefree Resort & Conference Center. Hosted by the Lariat Restaurant and Lounge, this Easter brunch will be one you never forget, and that’s because carved leg of lamb and Dr. Pepper-basted ham are clearly a step up from traditional Easter fare. The cost is $45 for adults and $20 for kids 10 and under. Brunch will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- Montelucia Resort & Spa. Executive Chef Michael Cairns of Montelucia Resort & Spa has a wonderful brunch menu prepared for Easter Sunday. Bone-in ham with jalapeño honey? That sounds more magical than a bipedal bunny. Brunch is available from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Prado. The cost is $79 for adults and $25 for kids 10 and under.
