Easter Sunday falls on April 8 this year, and our neighborhood has some of the best brunch spots in the city. Here’s a few of the best bets. And yes, in this case, I have a bit of a bias toward down-home, American comfort food. Make reservations early.

Rathbun’s Blue Plate Kitchen in Preston Center is an all-around favorite that I’ve probably written about too much. But, it’s hard to pass up their Easter Brunch menu (11 a.m.-3 p.m., $35 per person). It features, pigs in a blanket with smoked pork and whiskey-maple syrup, fried chicken with blue corn waffles and gooey Cinnamon rolls – that’s just to name a few.

Also in Preston Center, Sevy’s Grill is serving up an extensive three-course menu (10:30 a.m.-2 p.m., $31.95 per person), including goat cheese crostini, grilled Atlantic salmon and a whole platter of small desserts for each table.
