The seafood, oyster and wine experts at Humboldt Farm, Fish & Wine (1700 Humboldt Street) are rolling out an Easter Prix Fixe menu all day, so brunchers can stop in early and enjoy the quiet before the crowds or stop in later and catch some rays on the sunny, tree-lined patio. Choose from mainstays such as Executive Chef DJ Nagle’s Classic Clam Chowder, Humboldt’s Crispy Broccoli, or the Calamari with pickled pepper-tomato sauce, tempura lemon, shishito and aioli. Feeling traditional? Tuck into Chef’s take on Easter favorites Pan Roasted Airline Chicken, Scottish Salmon with chive garlic fingerlings, spinach and buerre blanc, or the always-impressive Carved Prime Rib with sour cream horseradish mash and spring vegetables. Brunch Fresh Sheet specials will be available, and we recommend guests wash it all down with a classic Mimosa or the fresh and spring-like Bellini with housemade peach puree for a quintessential Denver brunch.

Celebrate Easter Sunday with family and friends atwww.delfriscos.com (8100 E. Orchard Road, Denver ). Executive chef, Mario Hernandez has created a delicious Easter Brunch menu which includes the Filet Egg Benedict, Lobster Benedict and Prime Rib. Enjoy the morning as you sip on a Cranberry Fiz Champagne Cocktail or the Ketel One Bloody Mary. The restaurant’s regular menu will also be served and will open at 11 a.m. Limited seating is available for this event and reservations are required, 303-796–0100.
Easter is around the corner, so we suggest following the bunny trail to Olive & Finch Cherry Creek (3390 E. 1st Ave. ) open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Easter Sunday for a casually elegant brunch or dinner. Instead of colored eggs, you’ll find plenty of the cage-free variety —scrambled, over-easy, you name it—in the all-day breakfast and lunch dishes on the menu. Try it on the spicy side with the D.F. Hash, two cage-free eggs with pulled pork, green chilies, chimichurri, Swiss, potatoes and onions, or go traditional with the Henhouse Scramble, two cage-free scrambled eggs, Black Forest ham, sautéed mushrooms, red onions, parsley and cheddar cheese. If your Easter plans include dinner, stop in to the new Olive & Finch for an easy yet sophisticated meal including hearty entrée plates (think tender pork, steak, and salmon dishes) or a shareable flatbread. Of course, if it’s “rabbit food” you’re after, pair a fresh pressed juice with your meal, like the Rise & Shine—a blend of apples, kale, grapes, celery, ginger, lemon, orange and spinach sure to put some spring in your step. Pro tip: don’t miss the pretty pink Paloma (we hear it’s the Easter Bunny’s favorite).
Bring friends and family to Punch Bowl Social (65 Broadway) in the buzzing Baker neighborhood on Sunday, April 16 to enjoy a nontraditional Easter meal along with group-friendly activities beyond the egg hunt. From 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., the southern–inspired menu selections will include Crispy Chicken Biscuit with bread and butter pickles, spicy honey and crisp potatoes and Quinoa Hoe Cake Benedict with Tender Belly bacon, British breakfast tomato, and poached eggs. Or, go vegetarian with the Mushroom Biscuits ‘N’ Gravy including buttermilk biscuits, white mushroom gravy, avocado, and eggs any style. After the feast, check out the private karaoke rooms for some spring singing or gather your group for bowling, skee ball, ping-pong, retro arcade games, pinball, shuffle board, corn hole, and darts. Hop to it! Call 303-765-2695 for reservations.
Skip the expected glazed ham or rosemary-garlic roasted lamb this year: instead, go beyond the merely traditional to try out a savory, tender rabbit dish for Easter this year at longtime LoDo favorite Vesta (1822 Blake St. ). Executive Chef Nicholas Kayser is pushing boundaries this year with a cavatelli special with all-natural, tender, delicate braised rabbit with English peas, pea tendrils, roasted carrots, and a deeply complex Parmesan fennel broth. It’s a simple, savory dish with elegantly complex flavors and textures for Easter. Pro Tip: wash your rabbit down with Vesta’s spring-inspired Rosemary Mezcal Paloma – the “poor man’s margarita” balances a smoky counterpoint to the tender rabbit and pasta with los nahuales joven mezcal, grapefruit soda, agave nectar a dash of house-made grapefruit bitters for balance and a sprig of rosemary for garnish.
We know you like to brunch, and at Del Frisco’s Grille (100 St. Paul St. ) they’re extending brunch hours to a civilized 4pm on Easter just to accommodate Denver’s brunching crowd. Grab the steak knife to dig into the Grille’s traditional offering for the day, a 16 oz. slow-roasted, hand carved Prime Rib special. For the grownups, Easter means Peeps and cocktails, right? At the Grille they think so, letting grown ups have their Easter fun too with the special cocktail for the day, the Peepin’ Cold Brew, an eye opener with vanilla vodka, fresh cold brew foffee and monin salted caramel, served over ice and crowned with a mound of whipped cream and – of course – an Easter Peep perched on top. The upscale casual eatery will also be serving their regular brunch menu of classic comfort food designed and built for sharing, indulging and enjoying, including the Red Velvet Belgian Waffles, southern throwback Chicken-Fried Steak & Eggs the must-have Crab Cake Benedict.
Make it an “Egg-ceptional Easter” at Postino WineCafé (2715 17th St. ) with the unique Postino brunch – the compact and craveable regular menu is enhanced for brunch, and on Easter guests can indulge in scratch offerings from the kitchen highlighting farm-fresh eggs perfect for Easter such as the B.E.L.T., a hearty breakfast panini on soft ciabatta with applewood smoked bacon, scrambled eggs, dijonnaise, lettuce and tomato. Egg lovers with an appetite will love the Farm Scramble with roasted Yukon Gold potatoes roasted and scrambled with fresh eggs, herbs, onions, gruyere and white cheddar alongside a tart mixed greens and tomato salad, and if you’re looking for a simpler rustic take on eggs try the Country Toast with Italian ham, fresh dijonnaise and gruyere topped with sunny side up eggs. Drink a toast with a selection from the eclectic and approachable wine list where any glass of wine is always $5 until 5 p.m., and the fresh housemade mimosas are also $5.
