I know it's late...but Easter Brunch suggestions?

Ok, it's last minute, but I can't seem to find any Easter Brunch information on any individual websites. Anyone know if any places are doing anything special? We're three adults, and we'd prefer a buffet-style brunch, but would settle for a menu brunch if it's a good one. Boston/Cambridge would be best.

    I'm not really a fan of buffets of just about any sort, except perhaps Indian food at lunch. The only buffet brunch I can recommend is the one at the Blue Room, which is amazingly big and varied, not cheap, and includes eggs and omelets cooked to order. I imagine that will be fairly insane next Sunday.

    I might lean toward places that take reservations for brunch, given the inevitable crowds. That's maybe my least favorite meal to stand in line waiting for. If you haven't tried it, take a look at opentable.com, a free online reservation site that is very handy for this kind of thing.

      Oh, yes, of course I'm looking to make a reservation - I wouldn't even think of going out for a holiday meal without one. I will check out opentable, that's a good thought.

      You might want to look into Henrietta's Table at the Charles hotel in Cambridge. They do a Buffet brunch that isnt your typical buffet. Its much more upscale and the food is excellent. I know on a normal sunday its difficult to get a reservation, so i don't know that you will have much luck this close to Easter, but its definitely worth a shot!

        I made reservations there for Easter, based on recommendations from this group, and I think they are probably full - we got a 2:30 on March 21st. But I called them about this time as the website said brunch was over at 3PM. and I was not too happy with a 30 minute feeding frenzy experience. I learned the Easter Brunch ran until 4pm, not 3. and they were really nice. I think they will get cancellations as people double book and you might call and see if they have a wait list.

          I have a 2:30p for a party of 7 which I was going to cancel today. I am happy to transfer it into your name if you can provide one, I will hold off on the cancellation until this evening.

            I might be interested in taking that 2:30 reservation from you as well. Looking to take my wife and kids into Boston, only need a table of 4.

        The Easter buffet menu at Copia looks good.

          Hyatt Regency's doing one.

          Bob's Southern Bistro does a great one with live Jazz.

          Harvest might too and Turner Fisheries.

          Sidney's Grill in Cambridge is too

              Sel De La Terre on the waterfront would be fun, but go to Open Table Boston for a reservation. http://www.seldelaterre.com/

                Sel de la terre is a great suggestion for a "nice" place. If the daughter wants to go somewhere more sceney, I know Beehive is also doing Easter brunch.

                  I did a summary article today. Opentable.com seems to have the best list of options.

                  I recommended La Morra, the Blue Room and L'Espalier for three different experiences.
