For I remember it is Easter morn, And life and love and peace are all new born. ~ Alice Freeman Palmer
With all of its joy and emphasis on sharing food, Easter is a very special holiday. Just twenty minutes from downtown Boise there is a unique and delectable scene that is well worth the drive. I’m headed to the “old brick Masonic Temple” for Easter Brunch.
The Brick29 restaurant is located in Nampa, Idaho on 11th Avenue. Those who have dined there know how enjoyable its wonderful food and ambiance can be.
I discovered Brick29 on Christmas when a family invited me for a lovely dinner. Lots of cars drive past this “temple” building, but few people realize that there was a hidden feast inside. Many great reviews of the restaurant are part of the local chatter about where to eat. Some people call it “the best buffet ever.” Others have referred to their meals “the most amazing food” and “comfort food reinvented.” So that day, my expectations were very high and I felt eager for this dining experience. I was not disappointed. Ever since that amazing meal, Brick29 has been my favorite place to eat.
Holiday dining should be as pain free and enjoyable as possible. So with the bunny’s egg day approaching, I started doing some research on Easter brunches. The Boise Weekly shows the Easter Brunch details for Brick29. Chef Dustan Bristol’s cuisine is something I look forward to sharing with my people I love.
The Brick29 buffet will be serving a “seafood bar, farm-fresh Eggs Benedict and local Lamb Confit Hash,” according to the Boise Weekly. Further, being a local business supporter, I was delighted to learn that the restaurant uses ingredients from local food suppliers. Maybe I should tell my family to bring chickens eggs from a neighbor’s farm for Easter. I’ll even decorate them. With reasonable pricing starting at $19.99 for adults and $10.99 for kids, this spot is a “must try, must eat.” You might want to call in advance before it fills up: 208-468-0029.
Brick29 has an atmosphere of warmth, family and togetherness. The set up of the restaurant is very inviting and open. Even if you had no plans for Easter, or have to find a solo place to go, Brick29 will make you feel at home. My suggestion is to start by trying the buffet on Easter, then go back for “Wine and Dine” on Monday, another unique event this restaurant holds.
A Spanish proverb says that the belly rules the mind. Brick29 will have you leave your dining experience with a grin, feeling eager to return. Enjoy your meal and have a happy Easter!
