Restaurants that wouldn’t think about serving brunch the rest of the year make an exception for Easter. News about most of these brunches first appeared in our dining newsletter Pitch Forks, which goes out on Monday night. No guarantee that they haven’t sold out since then but we do try and check.

Grand Street Cafe serves a grand Easter brunch buffet with highlights including a seafood bar, a meat carver, a build-your-own omelet station and vanilla rum butter pancakes — for $22.95 per adult and $9.95 for kids 10 and under. But you have to call 816-561-8000 for seating times.

The Kansas City Marriott Downtown puts on a family-friendly Easter brunch on Sunday from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. with special appearances by a large rabbit and someone called LuLu the Clown. Offerings include a traditional breakfast buffet along with a variety of meat entrees and a carving station for sirloin and lamb. With two adult purchases of the Easter brunch, a family receives a $50 certificate for a one-night stay at any Marriott. Brunch is $30 per adult, $13 for children ages 6 to 12 and free for children age 5 and under. Make reservations at 816-421-6800, extension 4640.

Cafe Provence in Prairie Village has an a la carte Easter brunch from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. including eggs Benedict with crab ($14) and braised lamb stew with mashed potatoes ($17). For reservations call 913-384-5998.
