Hello all-

  1. Since I've just been asked for ideas for Easter brunch for 20 in NNJ, I figured I'd give this a bump... My immediate thought is usually to go to the better hotels for occasions like this, but I've also suggested that maybe Bistro 55 is offering their brunch (it's not on their site). This group is really watching their budget, so any great bargains would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Well, if (1) you are willing to travel to the western part of central NJ, and (2) price is not an issue, then you might consider the Grand Colonial, which is near Clinton. Note that you will be charged 15% for service. At one time they were charging 20% but I guess they received a lot of complaints.

      1. Thanks...I'll pass this idea along. Fwiw, I've found out that most of the people going live in Morris Cty, some as far west as Mt. Olive. Last I heard, they're looking at Perona Farms, which is $43pp, so this is in the right price range.

          I've made reservations at Rat's at the Grounds for Sculpture. $69/pp for a buffet lunch..not their regular brunch, and it gets you out onto the grounds as well. Maybe the weather will be warm enough to actually take advantage!

        2. You could take a look at Rod's in Madison...they have always had an excellent brunch.

          1. Check out this link for NJ brunch spots:


            If you are looking for something casual try Cafe Winberie Ridgewood. It can get pretty busy but its a nice spread...not huge like some of these, but yummy.

            And something unique might be blue moon in englewood and wyckoff. Not your typical buffet fare.........
