Sticking with yesterday’s Easter theme, I am inclined to write about arguably my favorite part of Easter, and no it’s not losing the Easter Egg hunt to my cousins. No, my favorite part of Easter is the absolutely fantastic brunch that has become a modern day tradition. Yes lather up those Eggs Benedicts with Hollandaise sauce because Jon has an appetite that needs filled. Whether it is the aforementioned Eggs Benny, the prime rib at the buffet, or those tiny little “not quite crab cakes, but they pretty much are” that make me go “nom nom nom,” I simply can’t get enough of this Spring Thanksgiving mid-morning feast. With that said, unless you have a traditional go to, or belong to one of the numerous country clubs around Columbus, you might be wondering, “Where in the world should I go for my mid-morning bingefest?” Well fear not, Columbus Underground has you covered, and we’re going to rank our favorite ideas on their list.
