Here’s a list of special Easter brunches and dinners around Houston. Whether it’s you and a few friends or a gaggle of extended family members, there’s a place to fit everyone’s budget and holiday preferences. And remember to check back with us. We will be adding more restaurants to the list in the weeks to come.
1800 Post Oak Boulevard
La Table is a multi-concept dining destination with an upscale French restaurant, Chateau, and a casual bistro, Marche. Both restaurants are offering Easter dining specials, April 21.
Chateau will offer its signature Grand Brunch family-style for the table. There will be a raw bar, a carving station with beef tenderloin, leg of lamb and seared Atlantic salmon, plus a pastry display of Easter treats like fresh fruit tarts, chocolate mousse and petit fours. There will also be a chocolate fountain with marshmallow Easter Peeps for dipping and swirling.

Marche will have a more laid back approach to the holiday with an a la carte and regular brunch menu. Its Punch Brunch features a weekly punchbowl cocktail, dish specials and live music on the patio.

Restaurateur Sam Governale welcomes guests to enjoy Easter Sunday at his European-style restaurant with an Easter brunch, 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and dinner service beginning at 5 p.m.
The adult brunch will include a choice of a passion fruit mimosa or a glass of punch. The children’s brunch will have gelato topped with Cadbury eggs for dessert.
Guests can start off with a pastry basket of homemade blueberry scones, mini E cinnamon rolls, and croissants with lemon curd and strawberry compote. There will also be spring inspired dishes like English peas soup, prosciutto-wrapped asparagus and spring beet salad. Delicious options like Lobster Benedict with a classic Bearnaise on grilled rosemary foccacia with crispy pancetta or braised lamb rigatoni reward your Lenten good behavior. And if you’re still behaving, there are lighter offerings like egg white frittata or wood-grilled Bay of Fundy Salmon. Did we mention Lobster Benedict?

CRU Food and Wine Bar
9595 Six Pines
Both The Woodlands and Kirby locations of CRU will host Easter brunch, Napa-style. Brunch beauties will get a sneak peek at some of the items on the new brunch menu. Diners will have a choice of three courses for $35, which seems like a pretty sweet deal for a holiday. Starters like avocado toast, rock shrimp Louie salad and mini Belgian waffles lead into entree options such as CRU steak and eggs, herb roasted lamb loin and CRU crab cake Benedict. End your meal with Meyer lemon and mascarpone curd, molten lava cake or creme brulee with fresh berries. That’s way better than jellybeans.
Children under 12 (1/2 off . We assume that means $17.50)
