Easter Sunday is fast approaching. And you know what that means, right? Brunch. We’ve done the dirty work for you and scouted the best places to brunch in Beijing this holiday.
Easter rings in spring. But you know what else it rings in? Brunch season. That’s right - warmer weather means more lazy Sunday afternoons spent wining and dining. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves - remember, the grandaddy of all brunches is Easter brunch, and nowhere’s doing a better spread of it this year than Chapter. The library-turned-dining room is offering egg painting for kids alongside a lavish buffet. On the table? Bourbon-glazed ham, roast lamb leg, baked salmon and, of course, hot cross buns.
The Georg is launching its new brunch menu just in time for Easter weekend. Expect a mix of shared spreads, including a basket full of freshly baked breads, pastries and dips and a platter with charcuterie, smoked cheese, rougié duck pate and gruyere terrine. After that indulge in three courses starting with a salmon, asparagus and cheese omelet, a wagyu beef main, and dessert.
