Serafina in Eastlake does Easter brunch Italian style.

Serafina 10am–3pm
Share antipasti—bitter greens with pancetta, butter lettuce salad, a Tuscan spring dish of fava bean puree and pecorino cheese— then it’s on to the entrees: grilled New York strip or fennel sausage with crispy potatoes, braised organic pork with shredded potatoes and sautéed nettles, a traditional Easter tart, salmon scrambled eggs, or Serafina’s signature dish, a cheesy baked eggplant. Individual items $5–$21/person; call for reservations.

Sazerac 9am–2pm
A buffet fit for meat lovers tempts with applewood bacon, pit smoked ham, andouille sausage, grilled free range chicken, and tri tip steak.

Tulio 8am–2pm
To complement their regular morning menu, Tulio offers Italian-inspired specials: creamy polenta with rosemary potatoes, toasted walnuts, and roasted pears, a torta of savory egg custard, pancetta, and cheeses, house-made lamb sausage, and crab tortelli.
