"Easter is a wonderful holiday for all the family to celebrate at the hotel. Breakfasts with the Easter Bunny are a new tradition while our longstanding Sunday Brunch is made even more special by celebrating Easter. We enjoy helping families build fond memories through these dining events," says Patrick Smalley, Managing Director, The Garden City Hotel.
On Saturday, April 7 in two seatings, at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., a fun-filled family morning starts with meeting the Easter bunny and friends including face painting artists. The kid-centric buffet breakfast in a pastel-illuminated decor features hearty hot and cold selections, Easter cookies and signature cupcakes.

The cost is $30 per person, plus tax and gratuity, and free for children two-years-old and younger. Reservations are required by calling (516) 877-9385.
