Pick 5: Better than Easter Brunch

Chocolate South's handcrafted chocolate assortment

Chocolate South's handcrafted chocolate assortment

Alright folks, Easter weekend is upon us. We wanted to break the mold of Easter brunch and offer you some fun food events that are different from your traditional seated meal.

So why don’t you….

Call over the tableside crepe cart…

At BLT Steak Atlanta. You’ll get an insider’s look on this French tradition of crèpe preparation. Watch as the batter bubbles into a sheet-thin browned blanket, which is folded into an edible blanket filled with fresh berries, Nutella and sweet cream.

Fill the Easter basket with…

Chocolate South’s locally-made handcrafted chocolates. Upon biting into a chocolate egg, Kona coffee and Gran Marnier infused cream gushes out and embraces your sweet tooth. White chocolate mini bunnies are laced with lemon oil and the chocolates filled with peach tea infused cream make you forget peach tea was served any other way.

Sip your way through an egg hunt….

Without leaving the bar. You don’t even need a basket at Artmore Hotel because for each cocktail purchased, you’ll choose an egg filled with offers like free complimentary hotel stays or food and beverage freebies. Popping with bubbles and citrus, the “Starry Lights” cocktail sparkles blue with curacao, champagne, Citron vodka and fresh lemons.

Venture outside the perimeter…

And into Tuscany at Taverna Fiorentina. Don’t let the shopping center outside fool you. The Tuscan-born chef is serving up traditional Italian dishes like steamed mussels, lamb chops and Italian wine varietals. Plus, $5 bellinis or mimosas all day.

Walk or bike to a chef demo….

At Atlanta Streets Alive. For Spring’s event, the West End will be closed to traffic and open to pedestrians. Local Caribbean restaurant Healthful Essence teaches you how to make raw and vegan specialties like curried vegetables and un-jerk chicken. They’ll be on Ralph D. Abernathy Boulevard between Lee Street and Dunn Street.
