    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!

    Hold Me Well

    Shrewd Productions presents this virtual world premiere of Eva Suter’s sci-fi re-envisioning of Shakespeare's Othello, depicting "a desolate, Central Texas inhabited solely by women after a catastrophic war has eradicated the male population. With the threat of another war and a new romance quickly unfolding before them, five women bound by the tragedy must entrust their lives to one another in order to save themselves and humanity." (Well, damn – count us in on that action, tyvm.) Directed by Rudy Ramirez, starring Ellie McBride, Hayley Armstrong, Elizabeth Mason, Emily Rankin, and Taylor Flanagan. Note: Click here to view the original trailer for the show.
    Through April 30. $8.

    Quack's Bakery: Easter Specials

    All three Quack's locations – Lady Quackenbush’s Cakery in Mueller, Quack’s 43rd Street Bakery, and Captain Quackenbush’s Coffeehouse on Menchaca – are offering a myriad of Easter goodies for a limited time, including: A six-inch carrot cake that's also a "Bunny" cake ($26.50); coconut cake filled with coconut pastry cream ($32.50); DIY Easter egg cookie kits ($15), which are, we daresay, perfect for the kiddos; six-packs of macaron Easter eggs in flavors of Earl Grey, matcha, lemon, Dreamsicle, vanilla funfetti, or raspberry; and more. But, oh! There are also complete Picnic Baskets right now, packed with sandwiches, chips, and pickles, and desserts and drinks, and plates and silverware and a blanket(!); and these totable treasures are $35 (serves two) or $70 (serves four).
