    A Trace of Easter

    This elegant eatery in the W Hotel Downtown is offering an Easter brunch prix fixe meal starting at 10am on Sunday, featuring a compelling variety of small bites, and entree choices of either Niman Ranch Griddled Country Ham (with poached eggs, fried green tomatoes, pimento cheese hollandaise, and roasted potatoes) or Cold-Smoked Beef Filet (with smashed Yukon potatoes, sautéed spinach, and beef-thyme jus). And dessert? Oh, yes. And cocktails? C'mon, this is in the W – you know there's excellent cocktails at Trace.

    Easter Brunch at Swoop Garden

    Especially now that 2 Dine 4's Stephen Shallcross has made good on his promise to sell plants at the venue, we can scarcely imagine a better Easter brunching spot than this verdant Eastside gem where the food's as good as the Texas sky is big and they know how to do a mimosa up right. You want a feast that starts with field greens with crispy proscuitto and burrata and caramelized figs, then moves on to a crabcake benedict or roasted lamb chops, and finishes via a warm peach crisp topped with vanilla ice cream? Of course you do: Your mama didn't raise a fool, right? But we reckon you'd best make those reservations early, friend

    Farmhouse Delivery: Easter Feasts

    We recently featured Farmhouse in these pages, because of their quality and innovation and all around community-uplifting goodness – and, in no small part, because we crave delicious meals that we can conveniently complete at home. So including them in this round-up of Easter feasts (especially since they offer the likes of Pork Medallions with Creamy Mushroom Sauce, Ravioli Primavera, Classic Chicken Pot Pie, Roasted Lemon Dill Salmon, and more) is a choice as obvious as a bunny is fluffy.

    Foxy's Proper Pub: Easter Brunch

    Downtown’s newest Irish pub is kicking off weekly brunch service this Easter Sunday from 11am-3pm with a menu featuring twists on sweet and savory favorites. They'll cook you up a Proper Irish Breakfast, of course, but also beet-brined Deviled Eggs and Citrus-Cured Salmon, among other treats. Still, the ultimate treasure, the biggest breakfast boss of all, might be their Irish Toast: a tempura-battered bread pudding with whiskey custard, crunchy crumbles, coffee whipped cream, and caramel drizzle. Come away, O human child!

    Food Access Resources from SFC

    We have to admit it's getter better, but we've still got a ways to go in dealing with this pandemic. The Sustainable Food Center has put together a thorough compilation of food access resources for Central Texans, ranging from farmers' markets to CSAs to delivery options and everything in between, so you can ensure that healthy food stays on your table. And if you're able to contribute they're accepting online donations, which support farmers and low-income families facing food insecurity. Get all the details on their website.
