Spring may not have officially sprung quite yet, but Easter is early this year – next Sunday, March 27. It’s time to think about your post-egg hunt meal. After all, we can’t exist on chocolate bunnies alone.

Restaurants all over the Baltimore area are hosting Easter brunches featuring entertainment, kid-friendly meals and all sorts of springtime treats. Here’s a look at your Easter Sunday options:

Aldo’s: The Little Italy favorite will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Easter Sunday and will host a Jazz Brunch featuring a live jazz duo. The restaurant’s full standard menu will be available, as well as brunch items, brunch cocktails and a three-course prix fixe Italian Easter dinner menu. 

B&O American Brasserie: Easter brunch at B&O includes an early bird buffet (8 a.m. to 10 a.m.) and an “all aboard” brunch running from 10 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. The early bird option has plenty to love – bananas foster French toast! – though if you arrive later in the day, you’ll also have your choice of excellent lunch dishes, like fried chicken, smoked salmon and roasted sirloin.

 Cinghiale: The Foreman Wolf Italian spot in Harbor East will serve Easter dinner from 4 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Easter Sunday. The full a la carte menu will be available, alongside a prix fixe menu featuring dishes like white asparagus and poached egg with white truffle and vincigrassi, a traditional lasagna including rose veal, porcini mushrooms and chicken livers.

Cinnamon Tree: Located in the Hunt Valley Wyndham Grand, Cinnamon Tree is making Easter brunch fun for both parents and kids with a champagne brunch for adults and a special “knee-high buffet” designed just for kids. The Easter Bunny will also be on hand, visiting with kids and handing out chocolate eggs.

Cunningham’s: Cunningham’s in Towson will be open for Easter brunch and dinner, with a two-course brunch menu available – the lobster-ginger soup sounds spectacular – and a three-course dinner.

Fleet Street Kitchen: Easter dinner will be available at Fleet Street Kitchen, including both an a la carte menu and a three-course prix fixe option featuring dishes like lamb ragu and ember-roasted carrots.

The Helmand: The famous Afghan restaurant will serve a special Easter dinner menu, focused on lamb dishes. Reservations are filling up, so don’t wait to make one.

La Cuchara: The Basque restaurant will be open from 11 a.m to 8 p.m. on Easter, with the regular menu available, plus a few special dishes, such as torrijas (Spanish French toast) with warm honey and apples, house-cured salmon and a 24-hour braised lamb shoulder with spring peas, morels and fresh mint.
