Easter brunch, dinner specials offered at metro Detroit restaurants


Easter is only a few days away.

While there is still time to plan and cook a meal, many restaurants in Metro Detroit offer special Easter menus when cooking is not an option.

Easter is usually a busy time for restaurants with brunch and buffets. While you may not find many buffets due to the coronavirus health crisis, many restaurants offer special Easter menus to eat and run.

Last year the coronavirus had a big impact on Easter as indoor dining was stopped. While the pandemic is still having an impact on the landscape of the Easter meal, the dining rooms of the restaurants are now allowed to be used at 50%.

Fewer seats will likely make reservations sparse or increase waiting times. Check with restaurants in advance for availability.

Here is a selection of the selections that are on offer at several of Metro Detroit’s restaurants.


Royal oak

This downtown Royal Oak spot in the former Mr. B gastropub offers farm-to-table fare. The highlights of the Easter brunch menu include beef cheek or lump crab and shrimp eggs Benedict, quiche and omelets. There is also a saddle of lamb Ghengis Khan, served with a spicy lemon hoisin sauce, crushed root vegetables or a dish of Alchemi’s homemade apple wood bacon. The sweet options include banana foster french toast and fresh apple and cheese strudel, served with Chantilly cream and fresh berries, as well as a chocolate soufflé for desserts.
