This weekend marks some big holidays. Today is both Good Friday and the first Seder. And, of course, Easter Sunday is this weekend. Whether you're Jewish, Christian, or simply into celebrating spring, we wish you a wonderful holiday.
Weekend starts now!
Dinner at the Best New Restaurant
This past Wednesday, Dolce Italian won Tom Colicchio's Bravo series Best New Restaurant by beating 15 other establishments, including four other Miami-area spots, for a $100,000 grand prize and the title of Best New Restaurant. In celebration, Dolce is offering a special five-course dinner inspired by dishes featured on the show. For $65 (not including gratuity and tax), you can feast on pizza prima amore, crisp zucchini flowers, insalata terremare, ricotta cavatelli, and crème al limoncello.
Easter to Go From Via Verdi
Easter is approaching, and you have relatives coming over from Weston for brunch. Skip cooking a fancy holiday feast and call Via Verdi to reserve an Easter to-go meal. For $45 per person, you'll receive appetizers, deviled eggs, lasagna with artichoke, baked leg of lamb stuffed with porcini mushrooms, baked new potatoes, sautéed artichokes, a smoked salmon frittata roll with mascarpone cheese, and a traditional chocolate salame for dessert. There's a minimum of two people to place an order, and you must order by Saturday, April 4. To reserve, call Fabrizio at 786-615-2870 or email email@example.com. Now you've got all the time in the world to hang with the Easter Bunny.
There's no tradition finer than getting decked out in pastel finery and enjoying a fancy-schmancy Easter brunch with the entire family. From giant spreads with seafood towers to a high tea that would make the Queen of England green with envy, the best brunches for your holiday enjoyment are listed here.
Easter Egg Hunt at Corsair
OK, so the White House has an Easter egg hunt with the president of the United States. Here in Miami, we counter that with a search for colorful eggs by Scott Conant. The celebrity chef's Corsair will host Easter Brunch from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., complete with an omelet station, a dessert station, and a variety of pastas and signatures. In addition, there will be a host of family-friendly activities, such as cookie- and bag-decorating beginning at 10 a.m. and a special Easter egg hunt on the Chef Garden Lawn with the Easter Bunny at 11 a.m. Corsair brunch costs $45 for adults and $22 for kids ages 5 to 12; children under 4 eat free. For reservations, call 786-279-6800.
