Easter Reccomendations

The family will be in town. Five adults and two children. We have a reservation at Henrietta's Table. However I am looking for options we might not have considered. Definitely want somewhere in Boston of Cambridge. Price is not really a concern.

  1. Have never done this ourselves but the Odyssey Cruise brunch on Easter is very popular.

    1. Henrietta's is great you should still go there

      1. I would check out the brunch at the Four Seasons. I have always enjoyed it. Afterwards, you can stroll through the Public Garden. I am in the minority who has never thought H's Table merits the raves it gets.

          I am also considering Henrieta's Does anyone know what they charge for Easter. I would have a bunch of kids under 8 do you know what they charge for kids. I just want to give the family a heads up to what to expect. Thanks for the help. Also, is it similar to the Sunday Brunch?

        2. I actually had brunch there yesterday and it was beyond superb! The Four Seasons brunch is the greatest brunch I have ever or will eat at! The food is incredible and so is the service.

            Henrietta's is $55 per person (I did not ask what it was going to cost for the kids. I think Henrietta's is very good (not great), however we have been there a lot and wouldn't mind trying something different.

            We considered the Odyssey, but will some of the family members didn't seem too excited about this. I was OK with the decision as I am a bit wary of the food.

            I thought of Aujourd'hui as well, but was wary of taking two 5 year olds there. Any thoughts on this? The seafood table really can't be beat there.

            The Ritz did a nice Easter brunch in the past which was kid friendly, however I have no idea what the transition to the Taj means.

            Still holding out hope for an unforseen option, but we have the Henrietta's reservation in case.

              The Bristol may be more casual and thus a more relaxed atmosphere for the children.


              Scroll down for the typical brunch menu.

                I had just tried to book Henrietta's for 2 on Easter and could only get a 2:30 rez which I took.

          2. More casual, but certainly kid-friendly, would be the Blue Room in Cambridge/Kendall Sq. for their April 8th "elaborate Easter brunch". $30 adults, $15 children:

              How much does the Brunch cost per adult.The Seafood Table sounds amazing. Has to be close to $100 per person. Am I close?

                I've always enjoyed the brunch at the Langham(was the Meridien) for many years. How does it compare to the one at the Four Seasons?
