Where to have Mother's Day brunch
Go all-out this Mother's Day at The Langham's flowers and brunch extravaganza, where guests can arrange their own bouquets and enjoy a customizable three-course menu, plus buffet stations of pastries, seafood and carved meats for grazing. A live acoustic duo provides music to set the mood, and kids can check out a card-coloring station to make something creative for Mom. $225 per person, $50 per child. Reservations available via Tock.
Feeling a little stumped in the gift department this year? Let the folks at Etta take care of things. Reserve a spot at the restaurant's River North or Bucktown locations for a three-course, family-style meal that boasts delicious brunch options (think blueberry coffee cake, soft scrambled eggs with fava beans and challah French toast) along with complimentary roses and rosé for your mom. $65 per person, $25 per child. Reservations available via SevenRooms.
If you've got picky kids coming to brunch, we bet they'll be satisfied by The Bristol's selection of hotcakes, sausage, buttered noodles and scrambled eggs for the little ones. Even more importantly, adults will dig special a la carte Mother's Day dishes with luxe touches, like deviled eggs and caviar or fromage omelet with watercress and truffle. Prices vary. Reservations available via OpenTable.
Prefer to stick closer to home? Pick up a Mother's Day offering of three jerk grilled lamb chops from Soul & Smoke, which are served with a side of sweet-and-tangy pineapple salsa. The lamb chops alone are enough to feed a small family, but we won't fault you if you tack on a half-pound of the restaurant's succulent brisket or some cornbread muffins. $30.50. Order via Tock for pick-up May 7–8.
Treat Mom to breakfast in bed with Beatrix's brunch to-go package, which includes scrambled eggs, melon and berries, brown sugar berries, maple chicken sausage and lobster and crab enchiladas with soft scrambled eggs and salsa verde. Round off your meal with an order of take-and-bake cinnamon rolls for a sweet treat. $43 per person. Order via Tock by May 7 for pick-up May 8.
Pick and choose from Prime & Provisions' buffet-style brunch, where you'll find options like eggs benedict, cinnamon French toast and made-to-order Belgian waffles, among other treats. If you want to go above and beyond, add on a $75 flower bouquet to complement breakfast options. Prices vary. Reservations available via OpenTable.
