Your guide to Easter brunch in Los Angeles
Menu: Belcampo’s ramping up its brunch offerings with a special Easter Sunday menu, which means braised lamb Benedict; corned beef hash; a springy pea-and-goat-cheese omelet; and ham and eggs are headed your way, in addition to the regular menu of eggs, burgers, pancakes, salads and sandwiches. Don’t feel like cooking that night? Order ahead to snag Belcampo’s Easter and Passover “spring celebrations” meals, which include brisket, lamb or ham and a number of sides.
Menu: Of course you’ll find succulent meats at this steakhouse’s three-course prix-fixe brunch, but you can also expect some exciting surprises and seafood. Start with an appetizer like bacon and eggs (pork belly and quail eggs) or smoked salmon tartine, then choose your main from a mouthwatering list that includes lobster Benedict, a hefty burger, and some Elvis-inspired French toast with foie gras before finishing with sticky buns for the table and some doughtnuts or coffee cake. Add-ons abound, so if you feel like splurging on a seafood tower, filet mignon, rack of lamb or that $15 Bloody Mary Cart, Bourbon Steak has you covered.
