Eats beat: Easter breakfast hunt dawns at H3 Ranch in Stockyards

Posted 9:06am on Saturday, Mar. 30, 2013

If Easter starts at sunrise, so can Sunday brunch.

The H3 Ranch steakhouse in Fort Worth opens every weekend at 9 a.m. to serve hickory-grilled steaks, breakfasts and specials.

H3 Ranch's weekend morning menu features a sirloin with eggs ($13.95) but also includes huevos rancheros, eggs-and-enchiladas, pancakes and biscuits with gravy.

It's the best steakhouse breakfast in town, and it's a weekly event, not a holiday-only special.

H3 Ranch is at 105 E. Exchange Ave., on the corner of North Main Street, 817-624-1246, h3ranch.com.

H3 is a corporate cousin to Lucile's Stateside Bistro, a familiar west side brunch stop for "Dutch baby" German pancakes or breakfast pizzas.

Lucile's is more crowded than H3. Get there when it opens at 9 a.m. any Saturday or Sunday; 4700 Camp Bowie Blvd., 817-738-4761, lucilesstatesidebistro.com.

Del Frisco's Double Eagle is open Easter morning after all.

The downtown steakhouse has adjusted its holiday hours to open at 11 a.m. If you don't get a table this weekend, try Mother's Day.

The restaurant's most elaborate Easter menu ever will include steak and eggs, shrimp and grits, banana-mascarpone French toast or prime rib. A three-course brunch is $39.

(Also, Sunday is the day when Del Frisco's offers a $49.50 "Power Couple" steak-and-crabcake dinner combo.)

Check on progress of the new wraparound, New Orleans-style iron balcony overlooking Main Street.

It's at 812 Main St., 817-877-3999, delfriscos.com.

Nearby, Capital Grille has joined the Easter brunch competition.

The downtown Fort Worth prime steakhouse will offer a $49 menu featuring a choice of breakfast items such as lobster eggs Benedict or grill items such as a filet, a bone-in sirloin, swordfish or salmon.

There's also a chilled seafood bar. Dessert choices include chocolate espresso cake. A child's brunch is $15.

Capital Grille is the local newcomer on the downtown "beef block." It's a Florida-based steakhouse chain and corporate cousin to Eddie V's Prime Seafood; 800 Main St., 817-348-9200, thecapitalgrille.com.

Between Capital Grille and Del's, peek at Little Red Wasp Kitchen & Bar, the new bar-and-grill coming soon at 808 Main St. It's the latest from Dain Adam Jones of Grace across the street.
