Easter brunch: Five of the most decadent feasts in New York City

Easter brunch is longstanding tradition in many families, and for those who like to enjoy a truly decadent spread, there's nothing like letting someone else do the cooking. The following New York hotel restaurants offer some of the best Easter brunches in the city -- for a price. But hey, it's special occasion.

Cafe Boulud

The Surrey Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Brunch is an extravagant affair at Cafe Boulud every Sunday, with two prixe fixe menus (two courses for $39; three courses for $49) that include dishes like ricotta cheese blintzes and Maine peekytoe crab benedict.

Fancy and French, Michelin-star chef Alain Ducasse's restaurant, Adour, opened at the St. Regis in 2008 and has received critical acclaim for both its food, earning a rare three stars from the New York Times, and its decor, which was nominated for a James Beard award for "Outstanding Restaurant Design."

Four Seasons New York

The Garden

Categories: Business, Luxury

The Garden, a new American breakfast and lunch restaurant opened at the Four Seasons in November 2009, is serving a three-course Easter brunch that is as over-the-top as the $125 per person price tag would suggest.
