We were good kids and made it to 9:30 a.m. Easter mass. Although I think E just wanted a chance to bust out his seersucker pants, and I didn’t get anything out of the service besides an aisle seat at the St. John Vianney spring fashion show. The little girl in front of us did “the worm” and stuck her feet in her older brother’s mouth the entire hour. Can anyone seriously pay attention during Easter mass with all the kids in their adorable outfits squirming like crazy because A. they already hunted for eggs and have had way too much sugar, or B. they’re excited about hunting for eggs. I was excited about brunch.
The Rainbow Lodge was an excellent choice for Easter brunch! It wasn’t too crowded, and we never felt rushed. And although it was a set menu, the food was executed so well. That is rare. They even had a bunny passing out Easter eggs and posing for pictures!
Bread, biscuits and jam…
Crab Cakes with Crispy Bacon, Green Onion & Creole Mustard Butter and Slow Smoked Duck and Andouille Sausage Gumbo with Wild Rice Pilaf
Entrée (we ordered the same thing):
Wild Game Mixed Grill and 2 Eggs ~ Venison Medallion, Duck Sausage and Texas Quail with Lodge Potatoes
Dessert (same thing again):
Chocolate Cream Cheese Torte, Chocolate Cookie and Brownie Crumbles, Espresso Anglaise
The Rainbow Lodge just might be my new favorite restaurant. We were both so full after, we could barely move. Thank goodness our only plans for the rest of the day include watching the Masters! How was your Easter?
