It’s official! The days are getting longer, daffodils are blooming and Via Lago Trattoria is planning our ever-popular Easter brunch…it must be spring! On Sunday March 31, the restaurant will be full of families eager to celebrate the holiday at our annual brunch. We love to see the parade of families: the grandparents, aunts, uncles, parents and kids at overflowing tables in their Sunday best.
To celebrate Easter, we feature a carving station with peppered filet and brown sugar glazed ham, an omelet and waffle station (think: waffles piled high with whipped cream and strawberries…the kids love that this counts as breakfast!). Next is the salad station complete with four choices, as you can’t eat your chocolate treats without a little green first: cucumber salad, a mixed green, a Caesar and cannellini bean salad.
A pasta station includes three of our most popular pastas and parmesan mushroom risotto. Be sure not to miss the Sicilian pizza that can be found next to the pasta station. Pollo Limone and seasonal vegetables are also featured and popular choices. Fresh, chilled shrimp with cocktail sauce rounds out the savory choices.
And don’t forget about the sweets! The dolce table is simply not to be missed. Many family photos are taken in front of this “I think I’m in heaven!” area. This year we will have our mini cannolis, éclairs, Italian cookies, fruit tarts, mini cupcakes, meringues, opera cakes and strawberry napoleons, and the Easter bunny always leaves jellybeans and chocolate treats.
Lastly, we will have the Sunday morning favorite beverages. What goes better with brunch than champagne, Bloody Marys and mimosas? We also have several original “spring fling” martinis that we feature to celebrate the season.
As always, the restaurant will be decorated in the lovely colors of spring, complete with our Easter bunny ear napkins that greet you at each place setting. To make your reservation, give us a call at (619) 216-8660.
On behalf of our entire staff at Via Lago Trattoria,
we wish your family a Happy Easter and Happy Spring!
