Millions of Americans eat out on Easter every year. Most of them will attend right after church, most likely to brunch.
Although the meal’s exact origins are a bit muddled, most believe the concept of brunch occurred thanks to Catholics who would fast before mass. Because the holiday is thematically built around eggs, it only makes sense that the period between breakfast and lunch (brunch, get it?) would become a staple for the Easter holiday. Fortunately for Flats On D, we’ve got plenty of locations nearby where you can enjoy the meal this spring season.
Okay, this dining spot actually goes all out for Easter. Based in Cambridge, Catalyst Restaurant will host a buffet featuring holiday themed breakfast items and desserts. Chef-owner William Kovel will also offer plenty of activities, including two egg hunts on the green outside the restaurant. Those dressed in their Sunday best will be able to take pictures with the Easter Bunny.
Because there are four temperamental seasons around Flats On D, Catalyst switches up the menu based on the freshest local ingredients.
