Easter Sunday brunch in Madison

Where are you eating and what do you think? What's opening, closing, succeeding, failing?

It's not Christmas where just Asian restaurants were open.
Everyone is open.
Drink, this is my blood.
Eat, this is my body.
Yuk.

Do you mean vegetarian/vegan or just in general?

The Avenue, either way.

The Ave's serving breakfastuntil 1p, and Easter dinner is served at noon (instead of the usual 11a on Sundays). If you show up there between noon and 1p, then you have your choice between both. I know the Easter specials will be the standard Sunday night fare.

You should call a day ahead or so to make a reservation. If not, after 10a, I would expect a walk-in wait of at least a half-hour. That should last through out the day and probably taper off at 4p or so.

Easter's my first day off after a 21-day-straight working streak. I intend on spending at least two hours at the Avenue with at least some cocktails or better, of course after church.

Geez - there has to be some place more interesting than the Avenue, isn't there?

The Concourse? Nau-Ti-Gal? It really depends on your mood. Are you looking for a huge easter buffet to gorge your self on in the name of Jesus, or are you looking for something ala carte so you can respectfully eat in the name of Jesus?

This exact question was my first posting on TDPF three years ago. (tearing up) We ended up at the Great Dane in Fitchburg. Family-pleasing variety, some pretty good items, no complaints.

When my family does Easter brunch in Madison we go to the Edgewater. Last year, lingering over coffee, we contemplated staying until we were ready for a second meal. (We didn't - people were waiting and we were stuffed.) I think it's about $40 per person without tip, and that only includes one mimosa.
