Easter eats

I never really celebrate Easter, but I can get down with hunting for plastic eggs full of chocolate and a really decadent, fancy brunch. For the latter, hit up the Firehouse (1112 Second Street) or, if you really feel like going crazy, the Hyatt Regency (1209 L Street) on Sunday, March 27. At the Firehouse, find a $45.95 four-course menu, featuring pastries, charcuterie, two desserts and a selection of main courses, including shrimp Benedict and pork belly and sweet potato hash. Bring the kids, who get a fruit parfait, s’mores and standard breakfast, French toast or breakfast burrito for $19.95. The Hyatt, meanwhile, is offering a $64.95—or $32.95 for kids—all-you-can-eat buffet. Think oysters, crab legs, smoked fish, deviled eggs, lamb shoulder, prime rib, biscuits, waffles, made-to-order omelets, desserts and so, so much more. It’s a little absurd, honestly. And if you’re assembling a gourmet basket for yourself, visit Ginger Elizabeth (1801 L Street) through Saturday for various egg- and bunny-shaped confections.
