Rabbit, anyone?

Easter Feastin’

Critic’s picks on where to eat on Easter

By Kathryn Robinson March 22, 2010


So much great food to be had on Easter…so little time.

In my day I have feasted on Essential Bakery Cafe hot cross buns and Macrina Bakery Budapest Coffee Cake and Le Fournil’s extraordinary almond croissants on Easter day.

But something about the wraparound patio at Trellis its Berkshire ham eggs Benie—is calling me this year. Or the crispy-luscious Grand Marnier prawns at Barking Frog , in the heart of Woodinville’s wine country. I’ll be extra happy if their sun-dappled patio is open that day.

Or maybe I’ll skip through Pike Place Market for a table at Cafe Campagne and a plate of oeufs en meurette, or featherweight brioche French toast, with a festive Champagne cocktail.

But I won’t fill up by day, as I already know that Easter evening will be spent supping on one of my favorite dishes at Capitol Hill’s heralded Piedmontese farmhouse, Cascina Spinasse. Which dish?

Why the chicory salad with marinated rabbit, of course. Can’t get much more Easter than that.
