Need Easter Brunch Suggestions
I'm taking my husband to NYC to celebrate his 40th. It also happens to be Easter Weekend. I had made a reservation via opentable for Rubirosa but they called the other day and canceled. They said they will be closed on Easter Sunday. So, back to the drawing board.
Can anyone suggest some place that will for sure be offering Easter brunch?
Open Table has a link for NYC restaurants that will be open for lunch and/or brunch that day.
We're going to Felidia ourselves. They are doing a family style lunch for $95/person. The menu looks wonderful.

Thanks ttoo! I saw the opentable list.
Since I'm Greek orthodox, I don't celebrate Easter that weekend. So I'm not particularly looking for an "Easter" brunch. Really was hoping for an amazing breakfast place that would be open. Obviously being able to make reservations is best, but I'm open to other options too. I've read so much about Clinton St. Baking Co. I called and found out they are open. I'm a bit afraid of how busy they will be but I might make a go of it. We love pancakes!
The majority of places will be open in NYC (not all of them, but most of them) for brunch on Easter.
For Clinton St Baking Company, on a Sunday a few weeks ago, we arrived at 8:20am and were second in line. By 8:30am about a dozen others had joined us. We were seated around 9:10am. By then the wait was already 60 minutes if you were at the end of the line. And it was VERY cold that day.
If the nice weather keeps up, I'd expect a 2.5-3 hour wait at Clinton St if you go during "normal" brunch hours (like 11am, 12p).

I did a quick scan of OpenTable and found many places open and serving brunch that day (I also included some places that will probably be open & that also take reservations)
'inoteca - Gramercy
Balthazar - call to reserve
Colicchio and Sons
Locanda Verde - call to reserve
Morandi - call to reserve
North End Grill
Pastis - call to reserve
Peels - call to reserve
Sarabeth's - Tribeca
The Smith - both locations
Union Square Cafe
Yerba Buena & Yerba Buena Perry
Because it's a birthday, I might go with something nicer like Maialino, Union Square Cafe, Marc Forgione, North End Grill, or Locanda Verde. Maybe Minetta Tavern, Balthazar, for that busy bistro vibe.
