Easter Eats bring fabulous holiday menus

Friday, March 22, 2013

Easter is fast approaching- with the holiday comes the perfect excuse for a fabulous meal shared with family, friends and loved ones. A few prestigious Manhattan restaurants will be offering pre-fixe menus of delectable dishes over the course of the weekend.

One of these is the ever-buzz-worthy The Lambs Club, located at 132 West 44th Street in Midtown. The five-star restaurant will offer dinners both on Easter Sunday and Good Friday, as well as a Sunday brunch.

Executive Chef Eric Haugen along with Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian play mastermind in creating these perfect holiday menus.

Options on Good Friday gear toward seafood, with dishes like Tartare of King Salmon and Roasted Diver Scallop beginning the meal. There are three courses, each with two delicious options. Good luck choosing between the Lemon Meringue Tart with Vanilla Poached Blueberries and Honey & Rosemary Ice Cream versus the Dark Chocolate Souffle with Sour Cherries and Straciatella Ice Cream, all perfectly plated. The dinner prices $65.

And for Easter Sunday, Peep-lovers rejoice! As Pastry Chef Bjorn Bottcher creates homemade marshmallows complimentary for all guests, in keeping with the spring holiday spirit. Live jazz will accompany the Easter brunch from 11 AM – 3PM. Dinner later is again three courses, with multiple options like choosing between Braised Lamb, Duck Rillette, Dover Sole or Loup de Mer as the main course. Easter dinner prices $55 and runs from 4PM – 9 PM.

Another favorite: Bistro La Promenade hosts an Easter dinner in Chelsea at 461 W. 23rd Street. Stepping into the bistro, the decore unravels into a sexy, cozy atmosphere crafted by Crème Design, from Brooklyn. Differing from the Lambs’ dinner, however, their menu serves as a la carte. 

The choices range from breakfast bites like Almond Crusted French Toast to Blueberry Pancakes with Lemon Curd to a wild mushroom-packed Quiche — oh my — to also include a fare of sandwiches, omeletes, poached eggs, chicken, dessert and, of course, an Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb ($35). Executive Chef Alain Allegretti prepares the dishes and shares his truth that even the simplest of foods can surprise eaters. His handling of Southern French cuisine is magnifique!

Easter eats will definitely not disappoint this holiday at both The Lambs Club and Bistro La Promenade.
