Want to step out of the box this Easter? Nix the ham and have some roasted free range Jidori chicken, steak and eggs, or seared basil salmon. Reject chocolate bunnies and order a Bananas Foster chocolate chip scone or a fruit mousse tostada. It’s brunch and a glass of champagne at Santa Anita Park’s Turf Terrace. Full menu here. $60 per person. For reservations, contact Pam Walden at 626.574.6402.
Now, if the idea of bottomless Veuve Cilcquot is more to your liking, then try this brunch option, which includes the premier dining area with “the ideal” view of the races, valet service, Happy Hour premium cocktails, and a number of dishes including Turf Terrace’s smoked salmon platter, steak and eggs, and caramel pecan bread pudding. $100 per person. Noon-2:30 p.m. Tickets available at SantaAnita.com.
Fifteen thousand eggs filled with Easter candy will be ready to be found on Sunday, April 20th. The family-fun zone will also offer pony rides, face painting, carnival games, and bounce houses. General admission, $5; family 4-pack, $40; each hunt, $2. Peruse tickets here.
