Let mamas everywhere be praised and exalted on Sunday, May 9, known as Mother's Day in these here parts. Since mom was so good to you all year 'round, why not give her the gift of a work-free brunch, lunch, or dinner at one of these local restaurants?
We'll update the list until the big day. If any restaurants would like to be included, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Steak 954: Chef Jason Smith and crew will pay tribute to Mom with a decadent brunch available from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m., with newfangled goods like Oscar Benedict with lump crab meat and asparagus and Nutella and banana crepes. The tribute continues for dinner, where 954 will serve local yellowfin tuna with oyster mushrooms and apple gastrique, pan-roasted shrimp with edamame (get it, Mommie) succotash, and a chocolate-lavender martini concocted just for those special ladies out there.
