    Regardless of your thoughts on the divinity and potential resurrection of Jesus Christ, there's one aspect of Easter about which people of all denominations can agree: it's a great day for brunch. The association of Jesus rising and a special brunch makes sense though; if I were resurrected, I'd want eggs Benedict and a Bloody Mary for my first meal. Here are some of the best bunches in Louisville where you still can get a table. Have a suggestion? Leave it in the comments.Proof702 W. Main Street Chef Michael Paley has a special Easter menu featuring the $9 Bee's Knees cocktail (Bombay gin, lemon juice and local honey) and sour cream waffle beignets with rhubarb preserves ($11). For reservations, call (502) 217-6360.Lynn's Paradise Cafe984 Barret Ave. Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of Lynn's Paradise Cafe, but it seems everyone else I know is. While there is no special Easter menu, reservations are still available for before 11 a.m. and after 1 p.m. Call (502) 583-3447.Toast on Market736 East Market Street Never mind Easter Sunday, Toast on Market's fantastic breakfast menu merits a stop every day (except Mondays when it is closed). My favorite: the bacon and egg sandwich with gorgonzola and frisee tossed in Dijon vinaigrette on a toasted ciabatta roll ($8.25). It does not take reservations, but it does accept call-ahead seating. Call (502) 569-4099.Seviche1538 Bardstown Road In addition to its regular appetizer menu, Seviche is serving a Latino bunch with entrees like lomito (grilled steak with fried eggs and chimichurri -- possibly the greatest sandwich ever), ham and Manchego grilled cheese, and maple pecan French toast. Call (502) 473-8560 for reservations. Wild Eggs3985 Dutchmans Lane 1311 Herr Lane When I told a friend that I considered breakfast the most important meal of the day -- so much so that I sometimes eat it twice -- he immediately suggested I try Wild Eggs. Wild Eggs doesn't take reservations and isn't having a special Easter menu, but as the hostess said, "Everything is special on our menu." Touché, madam, touché. (Photo: Flickr/Annie Mole)
