Easter Sunday is, if we’re being honest, a lot of work. Wake up early. Get all dressed up in your fancy (re: uncomfortable) duds. Head to the sunrise service. After all that, do you really want to deal with cooking?
Of course not! Even if weren’t going to church, Sundays are made for brunching. So let’s find you and the family somewhere to go for a fantastic meal in Oklahoma City that you don’t have to cook or clean up after.
Here are a few spots we’re always eager to visit:
Perform the miracle of turning wine into fun at The Pritchard in OKC’s Plaza District. In addition to an absolutely tremendous wine selection, The Pritchard offers a brunch menu par excellence, created by executive chef Shelby Sieg. Get some savory breakfast kolaches for the table and then settle in for a platter of fresh biscuits and homemade gravy, Johnny cakes or steak, eggs and crispy fingerling potatoes.
Part of the historic Colcord Hotel, Flint is a weekly brunch destination for those who love great eggs benedicts, red beans and rice and creole shrimp and grits. On Easter, Flint welcomes Touch of Sax for a live, family friendly saxophone performance. It’s brunch and a show in one of Oklahoma City’s most picturesque restaurants.
Reservations aren’t necessary for this unconventional brunch experience! The Bleu Garten is OKC’s premiere food truck park. Grab the whole family and enjoy a laid-back Easter meal with food from barbecue truck The Meating Place, Middle Eastern fare from Turkish Delight and incredibly rich edible cookie dough from Cookie Dough To Go. And if it isn’t brunch without a cocktail, Bleu Garten has you covered.
Brush up on Oklahoma history and art with a visit to the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum’s Easter buffet. Tickets are $35 for adults, $17.50 for kids ages 5-10 and free for kids 4 and under and include tax, gratuity and admission to the museum. Catered by The Petroleum Club, the meal will have carving stations, fresh veggies and an extensive dessert buffet (in case the Easter bunny didn’t bring enough chocolate). Best of all, you can walk off all that delicious food while strolling through one of the city’s cultural crown jewels. Reservations are required.
You will absolutely want reservations for Ingrid’s Kitchen’s Easter Sunday buffet, which is one of the hottest tickets in town. Adults are $22.95, kids 7-12 are $11.95 and those 6 and under are $6.95 for the sprawling buffet of quiche, eggs benedict with shaved ham, fresh waffles, cheesy hashbrown casserole and so much more. Carving stations will keep glazed hams and roast beef slices coming, alongside oven-fried chicken and an absolute ton of Ingrid’s famous desserts.
