Easter Brunch in Miami
Easter is Sunday, April 20, and whether you attend sunrise services, go on a hunt for colored eggs, visit the Easter Bunny, or sleep in, one thing is for certain: You'll need some fuel afterward.

Luckily, many of Miami's best restaurants serve Easter brunch. We're talking elaborate spreads filled with all manner of goodies -- from raw oysters and bloody marys to spring lamb and warm pastries.
Here's a list of offerings. Most prices don't reflect tax and gratuity, and reservations are strongly suggested.
Atrio Restaurant and Wine Room
Atrio will serve brunch with a view from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. An extensive buffet includes a seafood bar, a carving station, and an array of desserts. Cost is $85 for adults and $24 for kids 5 to 12.
Coral Gables' grand dame puts out quite a spread for brunch. This lavish buffet includes caviar, smoked salmon, shellfish, carved meats, fresh omelets, pastas, sushi, and more. Don't forget the wall of desserts. Brunch is served from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (last seating is at 2 p.m.) and costs $95 for adults and $42.50 for kids 5 to 12.
Bongos Cuban Café
Celebrate Cuban-style at Bongos with a brunch that includes a breakfast station, a traditional Cuban station, and a Cuban delights station.
