If you’ve somehow forgotten to make reservations for Easter Sunday, you might be out of luck at some of the city’s more popular brunch spots. Brunch is already a crowded time for many restaurants, and the holiday only makes that worse.

Like Mother’s Day, Easter is a time to leave the crowds to the more popular spots and try something new. Not only do these five brunch spots have interesting fare in the works, you can also still likely score a good reservation.

Knife will serve brunch and dinner on Easter Sunday, featuring "surprise" specials from Chef John Tesar. Finish off your meal with Pastry Chef Eric Cobb’s latest dessert, a riff on peaches & cream made with peach mousse, lemon sponge cake, peach sorbet, and compressed peach salsa. An Easter bunny-inspired carrot cocktail will also be on offer.

Wayward Sons

Wayward Sons will host their first-ever brunch service on Easter Sunday, featuring new dishes like avocado toast, biscuits and gravy, and blueberry-ricotta pancakes. The holiday is also an excellent time to debut the restaurant’s Cottontail cocktail, mixed with vodka, carrot-ginger juice, cilantro, and lime. Brunch will be served from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Sunday.

El Bolero

El Bolero

Skip the boring eggs benedict and head to El Bolero for a Mexican-inspired brunch feast this Sunday. Try the restaurant’s popular fried doughnuts, drizzled with strawberry-mezcal glaze and chocolate sauce, or perhaps a quesadilla stuffed with roast pork, eggs, Oaxaca cheese, and jalapeno potatoes.

Capitol Pub

If you don’t have the cash to splurge on a fancy prix fixe, head to Capitol Pub for an equally excellent Easter meal. On Sunday, Capitol Pub will serve roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, roasted potatoes, and braised carrots, a decidedly British take on the holiday feast. Adults can dine for $18, and you’ll want to make reservations for service on Sunday, which kicks off at 11 a.m.

Bird Cafe

Bird Cafe

Should you find yourself in Fort Worth on Easter Sunday, take the fam to Bird Cafe. Chef David McMillan will prepare a fresh a la carte Southern menu, featuring dishes like crab boil pickled shrimp over fried green tomato, hazelnut hoecake, and more goodness for Sunday brunch. Reservations can be made by calling 817-332-2473.
