Seattle Easter Brunch- Help Needed
- natalie.warner Mar 11, 2008 02:01 PM
What are your recomendations? Does anyone have a great suggestion for a brunch/breakfast/lunch spot to try or know of any restaurants that are offering a menu for the occasion? What is your go-to brunch location? I would like to try something in the Seattle area- we are a party of three. Thanks!
IF YOU DON'T MIND SPENDING IN THE HIGH DOLLAR RANGE-FOR BUFFET BRUNCH-DEFINITELY LOOK INTO THE RESTAURANT AT THE EDGEWATER HOTEL, 6/7.
CLASSY SPACE, EXCELLENT FOOD, AND THE BEST VIEW IN TOWN. RIGHT ON THE WATER. I'LL BET THEY ARE GOING TO MAKE IT EVEN MORE SPECIAL FOR EASTER. DO A SEARCH ON THIS BOARD TO LEARN MORE. IT'S THE BEST BRUNCH IN SEATTLE.
You're very late for Easter Brunch reservations - I made mine Feb 1st!
Personally, I prefer buffets on Easter since restaurants are always slammed anyway we don't have to wait for individual orders in a packed house.
We went to Saltys last year for the buffet and it was great but kind of a madhouse (we'll go again this year, though). The year before that we went to Ivars Salmon House on Lake Union, which was good, but not great.
At this point, if you can find a reservation, it will probably be in the late afternoon.
Yeah, I'd probably skip Ivar's. Between Tilth and 35th Street, I'd do 35th Street. Every meal I've had there has been good to great.
I went to Tilth for my b-day brunch last year and it was probably the worse brunch I'd ever had. From reading other people's experiences, I *might* give it another go, but it's very low on my list (hence it's been over a year without a return visit). A few highlights - the place was only about 1/4 full, but it took FOREVER to get anything. The diners finally revolted and went and grabbed the water pitcher and we all poured our own water. I ordered a bloody mary which was undrinkable. The woman giggled as she served it that they had *run out of salt* - they sure had...it was absolutely horrible. The food itself was okay (once it finally got there), but not worth the price. In all, that brunch took over 2.5 hours. My boyfriend swears he'll never go back - it kind of put a damper on my b-day.
Going out for Easter brunch is sort of like going to dinner on Valentine's Day. Restaurants won't be at their best--kitchen will be slammed, servers will be overworked, tables will be crowded. and there will likely be kids who aren't accustomed to eating in restaurants and may not have their "company" manners on. Both Tilth and 35th St are deservedly fab but I wouldn't risk a first trip or special meal at Easter brunch.
