Easter is a day to be celebrated with family and friends, not slaving away in the kitchen! Check out these great valley restaurants that are offering easy and delicious eats so you can spend time with your loved ones this Easter.

The Arizona Biltmore, one of the classiest and finest resorts in Phoenix, always celebrates Easter with particular flair. What about dining at the lovely Wright's for Easter Brunch? They have the food you'd expect and want from Wright's - omelette, frittata, carving boards, iced seafood - and more. It sounds like the place to be on Easter! Easter Brunch at Wright's is $95 for adults and $40 for children under 12. They also have an egg hunt for the kiddos - this is only for children staying or dining at the resort on Easter, so plan accordingly. The egg hunt starts at 9:30am.


Different Pointe of View, at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort, is hosting an elegant Easter Brunch Buffet that is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters in your clan. Bask in the beautiful scenery and enjoy some family time. Adults are $59.95 and children 10 and under are $29.95. Call 602-866-6350 to reserve your spot - do it soon! You can also reserve online. Brunch runs from 10am-5pm on Easter Sunday.  Before brunch, enjoy meeting the Easter Bunny for photos from 9am-1030am, then the resort's Easter Egg Hunt, along with lots of fun games throughout the afternoon!

Sanctuary on Camelback (one of my faves) has an Easter Brunch with items from award-winning chef Beau MacMillan available on the menu. You can also opt for the Easter Buffet, with delicious options like fresh fruit & berries, artisan breads, cheeses and charcuterie, fabulous seafood, a variety of salads, and a chef’s buffet of Easter desserts. The buffet is available on Easter Sunday from 11am-2pm. Prices are $65, and you can add sparkling wine for an additional $10. (And why not celebrate?) The children's buffet is $18 for 5-12 year olds, and free for little ones 4 and under.

Rico's American Grill, at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resport, is also having an Easter Buffet. Fresh herbs and veggies from the garden will surely be on the menu, along with all of your Easter favorites - made-to-order omelets, pancakes and French toast, a “little Italy” pasta station, salad bar and carving station.  The Buffet runs from 11am-5pm. Adults are $49, Seniors are $45, and children 10 and under are $29.   Before the buffet, enjoy searching for eggs at Coyote Camp and then visit the full petting zoo from 10am-1pm!  (Staying at the resort?  Have the Easter Bunny deliver baskets of treats to your suite!) 

Have a great Easter - and make your reservations ASAP if you haven't already!
