Whether your celebration of Easter is ecclesiastical or egg-lesiastical, chances are you'll be brunching on Sunday, April 20. To help you find a better buffet experience, Boise Weekly has compiled this (by no means complete) list of where you break that long Lenten fast, or just enjoy a little midmorning decadence.
BanBury Golf Course Restaurant is doing brunch the old-fashioned way from 9 a.m.-2 p.m., with buffet-style and full-service omelet and waffle stations. Biscuits and gravy go side-by-side with Asian options like orange chicken and fried rice. Some of the choicest items on the menu are meats, including prime rib, cherry lamb and bacon. Prices are $28.50 for adults, $14.25 for kids ages 6-12, and free for children ages 6 and under. Call 208-939-4600 for reservations.
As of press time, there were still a few reservations left at Berryhill & Co. downtown, where from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Chef John Berryhill is offering hearty options like hash browns, sausage patties and smoked ham, alongside upscale options like parmesan brie bass, chive biscuits and gravy, and the vegetarian chef scramble. Add to that a slew of desserts and the bloody mary bar, and you have a recipe for an unforgettable Easter brunch. Price is $29 per person. Call 208-387-3553 for reservations.

If you're looking for something a little lighter, try the trout 'n' eggs--Idaho ruby red trout, scrambled eggs, fried potatoes--or the veggie omelette. Brunches also include biscuits, a fruit cocktail and, to top it all off in grand chocolatey fashion, Grand Marnier chocolate mousse. Price is $30. Call 208-383-4300 for reservations.
The Riverside Hotel's Grand Easter Brunch is set for 9 a.m.-1 p.m. in the hotel ballroom, where you can dine on carved prime rib, baron of pork, omelets and crepes, eggs benedict and bottomless mimosas--all to the elegant sounds of harpists Stephanie Leavell and Jacqueline Marcus.
