Looking for Easter Dining options

grangie angie Feb 27, 2010 11:40 AM

My husband & I will be in Austin(Leander,actually)for long Easter week-end.
We live in Seattle.
Any recommendations for Easter Dinner dining?or late Brunch?
Kid friendly....2 grandkids...6 & 7 yrs,well behaved.
Something that would be perhaps focused on 'local' Texas type ciusine?if there is
such a thing?

Living in the Pacific Northwerst with the abundance of fantastic seafood available,
we are not too interested in eating the same in Texas.
We are meat eaters too,and perhaps something like Texas BBQ,brisket,etc....
would be nice.We Absolutely can NOT get good BBQ in Seattle!

We are not restricting ourselves to meat,per se,but maybe something a little more
'indiginous' to Texas would be interesting?
Any suggestions?

Thanks to "all y'all" Chowhounds

    Have been reading about all those delish BBQ places...
    does anyone know if they do something special for Easter?

      I'm thinking Lamberts might be a good fit for you for Easter Brunch. I'm not sure if they are doing something special for Easter; or if they're serving their regular brunch buffet ($26 for adults, $12 for children). You should give them a call I've never been myself but have heard many people say they love it.

      something particularly austin/southwest/old school is green pastures:
      they have peacocks! i bet the kids would love that.
      and the adults should try some of the old-fashioned milk punch.

      lambert's has a lot of haters re: dinner, but their brunch is a great value, considering the options and the usual dinner prices.
      i highly recommend it, but the surroundings won't be as interesting as green pastures.
