Mother's Day

5 May 2016

Ah, Mother’s Day: The day when we celebrate the ladies who made us who we are, taught us valuable life lessons and were always there with a band aid and a kiss for our boo-boos when TLC was required.

 

So why are you considering dragging her out to wait in a brunch line on her special day? I guess if she was prepared to wait nine months for you, it’s okay for you to make her wait 45 minutes for some eggs. At least you should take her someplace worth the wait, someplace spectacular. Good thing we’ve got you covered like gravy on biscuits.

Zeb Stevenson’s brunch brings all the moms to his yard. Since landing at Watershed at the beginning of 2015, Zeb has gently pushed the envelope of approachable fine dining in Buckhead. This Mother’s Day he’s serving up a special brunch menu that includes sourdough beignets, pressed cornbread and banana French toast and the aptly named Very Good Chocolate Cake. It’s very good, we’ve tried it. A few times.

So head on down to Peachtree and 25th for a brunch you’ll be talking about next Mother’s Day.

Cypress Street Pint and Plate wants to help you make your Mother’s Day unforgettable this year by hosting a special brunch boasting Executive Chef Duane Styka’s newest offerings including an IPA cured salmon Benedict; the Cypress Frittata; Cypress Flapjacks; and more. The best part, though, is if you bring mom and buy your own entree, mom’s entree is half-off.

For more information, please visit www.cypressbar.com or call 404-815-9243.

Justin Keith at Food 101 in Sandy Springs is putting together a Mother’s Day brunch that will make your belly and pocket book happy. Get your day started right with some chicken skins (we know that’s the only reason you buy fried chicken anyway), and then follow it up with crab cake benedict, cinnamon French toast or a lobster cobb salad (pictured).

This Italian eatery located in the middle of the West Paces/Roswell Road/E. Andrews triangle has just started serving brunch. But you wouldn’t know it. They’re already finding their own space among Atlanta’s crowded weekend brunch elite, with offerings you can’t refuse like: tequila or vodka bloody marys, breakfast breads, scones and zeppoli, and outstanding entrees like fettucine carbonara, duck benedict and short-rib sloppy joes that are leading a renaissance of high-end brunch options.

Bring your mama to enjoy these classic Mediterranean flavors on Portofino’s stunning patio, and experience al fresco dining the way it’s supposed to be: surrounded by family.

 

But even if your mom is far away, remember to pick up the phone and let her know you’re thinking of her.
