Whether your weekend is filled with hot cross buns, bunnies, and Easter Eggs, or Matzo Ball soup, brisket, and macarons, prepare now for a delicious celebration. From the perfect Easter brunch spot and Easter Egg fillings, to freshly baked desserts, nothing brings family and friends closer like a meal together. 

EASTER

This Easter Sunday (April 1st) follow your morning church service with brunch as classic and chic as your Easter attire. Choose from Union Square's staple offerings like Union Fare, Bowery Road, Union Square Cafe, Gotham Bar and Grill, and Barbounia — or try something new with brunch from around the world! 

One of the best parts of Easter is the infamous egg hunt. Make sure your colorful vessels are worth the search with sweets from Dylan's Candy Bar, Kellogg's NYC, and Whole Foods. Choose from colorful gummies, chocolates, and rice krispie goodies to keep the day sugar-buzzed.

For goodies that won't quite fit in an easter egg, head to the neighborhood bakeries. For a limited time, Maison Kayser is selling chocolate bunnies, chickens, and eggs in addition to their decadent and scrumptious pastries. Daily Provisions is known for their freshly baked breads, and doughnut goodness all year round. For one-bite delights, Baked by Melissa features a seasonal flavor trio of Dark Chocolate, Marshmallow and Chocolate Creme Egg cupcakes! Or, every Spring, Gotham Bar and Grill introduces a Spring Collection Bonbons Box featuring five different flavors (Thai Curry Banana, Passion Fruit Caramel, Apricot-Cashew, Mango Matcha, and S'mores)—pick them up in-store or order online. 

For the perfect pop of color, pick up a beautiful floral arrangement from Whole Foods or Union Square Greenmarket to invite Spring into any home.
