12 Easter Feasts To Enjoy In Bergen
Candy is great and all, but nothing beats a hearty family meal on a holiday. Here are 12 restaurants with special Easter menus.
We love chocolate bunnies and marshmallow chicks as much as the next person, but when it comes to celebrating Easter with the family, feasting on a full brunch or dinner is what we look forward to most. And that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to prepare the feast. From traditional omelets and French toast in the morning to prime rib and pork loin for supper, there are plenty of ways to satisfy our cravings—and have someone else do the work.
Here in Bergen, there is no shortage of restaurants offering special menus on Easter, April 17. Tables are filling up fast, so remember to book your reservation soon. Below is a sampling of eateries with Easter specials:
Biagio’s, Paramus. Come hungry for the brunch buffet, which includes omelet and carving stations, or save your appetite for dinner specials like roast leg of lamb or colossal stuffed shrimp.
*299 Paramus Rd., Paramus, 201.652.0201
The Brick House, Wyckoff. The all-you-can-eat lunch buffet has pasta and carving stations as well as a Tuscan table with Italian dishes and a dessert spread for those with a sweet tooth. The Easter a la carte menu has items like surf and turf and swordfish topped with bruschetta.
*179 Godwin Ave., Wyckoff, 201.848.1211
The Capital Grille, Paramus. How does lobster frittata with butter poached lobster tails, truffle hollandaise and white cheddar hash browns sound? Enjoy this dish and more during the restaurant’s special Easter brunch.

*1 E. Franklin Tpke., Ho-Ho-Kus, 201.445.4115
Il Villaggio, Carlstadt. Among the Easter offerings at this upscale Italian restaurant is a must-try grilled filet mignon over porcini mushroom sauce, but you can’t go wrong with the seafood and pasta selections either.

Madeleine’s Petit Paris, Northvale. How about a little French fare for your holiday? Stop by for Easter brunch, featuring dishes like foie gras and beef bourguigon, or arrive after 3 p.m. for a late lunch or dinner. Pork medallions Normand and grilled salmon both sound delish as entrée options, and we’re eyeing French apple tart for dessert.
