Happy Easter in advance! U-T San Diego highlights delicious-sounding brunches available on Easter Sunday below:
“Gourmet brunch spreads take over the city on Easter Sunday, alongside the rampant Easter egg hunts.
This year, Easter is observed on March 31. We celebrate by dining with our loved ones and toasting to a spring season in full bloom as chefs lighten up their menus and find any excuse to top a dish with fruit. While the kids anticipate their encounter with the Easter Bunny and count their jellybeans, the adults pour another bottomless mimosa and make a beeline for the buffet. Make your reservations at these top spots for Easter brunch in San Diego.
