As Easter Sunday approaches, the Sugar Hour grows happily nearer. When the sun comes up, I'm gonna spend 12 straight hours eating malted milk eggs and peanut butter Reester bunnies and other sugary wonders shaped like spring flora and fauna.
For a more sophisticated dining experience, Provence in the Village is having a regular slap-up for brunch on Sunday, an made-to-order affair of special goodies: grillades and grits, crustless quiche with artichoke hearts, scrambled eggs with Noble Farms goat cheese, French toast stuffed with fruit, nuts and Neufchatel, plus starters f charcuterie plate, cheese plate and an epic pastry basket. (Insider tip: the Green Hills Provence is the only restaurant in the Hill Center open for Easter. They'll be serving the regular menu, and also free cookies for the kiddos.)
F. Scott's is putting on a special Sunday brunch, too. Crab and crawfish omelet, smoked duck confit hash (how good does THAT sound?), truffled Parmesan pommes frites, apple cheddar pancakes. Get a reservation at 269-5861.
Similar decadence at Chappy's on Church Street -- not the brunch menu, but the dinner menu all day, if you're in need of cherry duck, stuffed trout, or veal topped with shrimp and crab. And then a nap.
Germantown Cafe, Margot, Jackson's, Le Peep -- or grandmother's house: where will your sunny-side-up post-Passover-Easter eggs be this weekend?
