In this week’s batch of brunch bites, Lettuce Entertain You restaurants honor Martin Luther King Jr. day by extending brunch service to the Monday holiday.


Typically, lemon pancakes and quinoa cakes with poached eggs are more of a weekend ritual at Beatrix, but thanks to Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, January 19, you can start the week off on a nourishing note. Available from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., Beatrix brunch features all the weekend favorites along with fresh juices, coffee, and butter-infused “Bulletproof” coffee.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day (officially Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.) is an American federal holiday marking the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. It is observed on the third Monday of January each year, which is around the time of King’s birthday, January 15. The floating holiday is similar to holidays set under the Uniform Monday Holiday Act.

King was the chief spokesman for nonviolent activism in the civil rights movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law. The campaign for a federal holiday in King’s honor began soon after his assassination in 1968. President Ronald Reagan signed the holiday into law in 1983, and it was first observed three years later. At first, some states resisted observing the holiday as such, giving it alternative names or combining it with other holidays. It was officially observed in all 50 states for the first time in 2000.
