Easter weekend is upon us, and in typical New York fashion, brunch is a top activity for this Sunday. There’s never a shortage of places to brunch at in NYC, but this weekend has some extra options. From the sophisticated to the kid-friendly, and from the tip of Manhattan to the waters of the Hudson, there is plenty for New Yorkers to do for the holiday.
Leave the egg coloring and bunny-shaped candies at home, and enjoy one of these delicious brunches with friends and family:
Conrad New York
A brunch that both the children and parents will love, Easter Sunday at Conrad New York’s ATRIO Wine Bar & Restaurant will feature a doughnut-making workshop for the kids, and live jazz for the adults. Brunch is available from noon until 3:30pm, with a set price of $35 per child (up to 12 years old) and $75 for adults.
