This Easter brunch doesn’t require an RSVP

Last year Whole Foods Market launched its first all-you-can-eat Easter Jazz Brunch Buffet.

Today, April 16, will mark its second Easter brunch event.

Unlike most Easter dining offers in town, RSVPs are not required (although they are encouraged). So if you are still in the market for options, this is probably a really good one.

Events are something that our local Whole Foods store has put on regularly since opening on June 3, 2015. They are a great value if you can find the right one that appeals to you.

For example, the next beer dinner will take place on April 18 from 6-8 p.m. This month will highlight Cleveland-based Great Lakes Brewery with a festive, five-course meal paired with five Great Lakes beers. Cost is just $30. If you are interested, email with names and number of people attending.

“We want to be more than just a grocery store. We strive to be a place where the community feels welcome, where people can come together around good food and great company,” said Lauren Romansky, Marketing Team Leader, Whole Foods Market. “Our talented chef’s feature new recipes on all the bars every day. Like all food we sell in the store our meal offerings are free from any artificial colors, flavors, preservative and sweeteners. Our deli meats are nitrate and nitrite free, and our meat and seafood standards are some of the highest in the industry. You can always count on the quality of our ingredients.”

If you are not interested in attending a specific event, every day is a new day of eating at whole foods with menus that change daily throughout the store including wood-fired pizza oven options, sandwiches and burgers, the hot bar, platter bar, soup bar and organic salad bar.
