11 Amazing Easter Brunches in Columbus
Spring may be best defined by Easter, which celebrates life, revitalization, and a return to bounty. On this holiday, there are no shortages of places to pig out after a cold, dreary winter season. Here are some choices for every taste and budget:
Dinner at The Keep, 50 W Broad St., is especially great for special occasions, so it makes sense to at least consider this French brasserie and liquor bar for Easter brunch. Their Easter special includes chef-attended stations and dishes from their regular brunch menu like chicken and waffles, hash, omelets and brioche french toast. Children under 12 eat at a discounted rate.
