With the Easter weekend upon us, and other than a bank holiday weekend and sickly amounts of chocolate, the Sunday dinner is definitely one of the best things about it.
From traditional lamb roasts to a pizza brunch banquet, we’ve rounded up a list of six eggsellent places to eat this Easter.
Simpson’s in the Strand
This is the perfect British classic option at the iconic Simpson’s in the Strand. Indulge in their most traditional dish of Daphne’s Welsh Lamb with potato gratin, English fine beans and mint gravy. The lamb is carved at the table by Master Carver, Manzil Diniz and you’ll be able to enjoy it in the elegant and sophisticated surroundings.
An Italian Easter brunch from Good Friday (30th March) through to Monday 2nd April will be served up at Fiume. Their special spring Easter menu will be Homemade pasta with Grana Padano Riserva, peas, broad beans and spring truffle, followed by roasted and braised lamb with mash potato and seasonal vegetables and finished with Colomba Pasquale, a traditional Italian Easter cake. It’s perfect if you’re bringing kids as they eat for free from 27thMarch until 2nd April with the Bambini menu.
The delightful member’s club, The Devonshire Club, opens its doors this Easter for non-members too. Sunday 1 April will be the launch of their new Weekend Brunch menu and will include a very special Easter dish: Luke Valley lamb served with a selection of new season vegetables, rosemary tomato gravy and mint sauce. Try it with a delicious Hot Cross Bun Espresso Martini, and enjoy the breath-taking chocolate display with an indulgent gift bag.
The Goring Hotel
The Dining Room at The Goring Hotel will be hosting a delightful lunch menu on Easter Sunday for you to truly dine in style. Start with the Violet artichoke salad, confit egg yolk, Katherine goat’s cheese, smoked mayonnaise and the restaurant’s signature Eggs Drumkilbo. For the main course, you’ll be able to enjoy the Marsh lamb, smoked aubergine, yoghurt, lamb sweetbreads, spiced pine nut and carrot and Scottish halibut, sautéed shellfish, fennel potatoes…and the list goes on.
The authentic and chic Islington trattoria, Radici, has just launched a new brunch pizza menu that will be available to enjoy this Easter weekend. The master butcher Sal Dorado will be giving live butchery and carving demonstrations on the Easter weekend where you can enjoy a more traditional feast of lamb and seasonal vegetables.
Shoryu Go in Soho will be offering a carefully curated 3-course seasonal menu from 26 March to 8 April. Choose the well-known char siu Shoryu Bun followed by the Ganso Tonkotsu with fried shallot and Gudetama egg. Finish the meal (if you can) with the Matcha Cheesecake for a truly alternative Easter meal.
