Five alternative ways to celebrate Easter 2018 in London
Are you hunting for something a little more unconventional to tempt your tastebuds this Easter weekend? Look no further than our basket of bank holiday delights. Whether you are looking to feed the family, indulge in some tipsy treats or simply satisfy your inner-hipster, there’s something here for everyone.
Feast on a festive pizza
If you want to give those lambs a break, why not head down to pizzeria Zia Lucia, where you can swap your Sunday roast for the seasonal Uovo di Pasqua pizza, made using their signature 48-hour fermented dough. Vegetarian options are available, along with a variety of bases – all of which are fired up in a traditional wood-burning oven.
Wave off lent with a boozy beverage
Love hot cross buns? Then you might want to try Aqua Shard’s boozy take on the traditional Easter snack. Their extravagant limited-edition cocktail is laced with cognac, dark chocolate liqueur and a blend of seasonal spices, and – as if we thought it couldn’t get any better – topped off with chocolate eggs nestling in spun sugar.
Hop along to afternoon tea
Sanderson Hotel are joining in the Easter fun with a special springtime edition of their famous Mad Hatters afternoon tea. Alongside the usual enticing selection, the Easter bunny will be personally visiting every table in the form of a sumptuous chocolate cake. Perfect for children – or any sweet tooth.
Welcome the spring with a song
What better way to mark Easter than having lunch while a gospel choir is singing next to you. Quaglino’s are hosting one of London’s best choirs over Sunday dinner to accommodate those who want to connect with the holiday’s more spiritual roots. Simply sit back, eat to your heart’s content and bask in the joyful chorus.
Crack into a bottomless brunch
Everyone has heard of a bloody mary, but have you heard of a Bloody Scotsman? If you are brave enough to try it out, Scottish culinary sensation Mac and Wild are offering unlimited servings all weekend. Or if you prefer, you can enjoy their seasonal dessert special, the Deep Fried Crème Egg Sundae, an ode to its classic Mars Bar cousin.
