Gratitude and Grub: Three Scrumptious Brunch Spots for Mother’s Day
Every second Sunday of May, families from across the United States (and dozens more countries around the world) celebrate the matriarchs in their lives. Mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and other incredible women get their due for decades of love and work within their families. It’s a great day to sit down and appreciate those who mean so much to so many.
Kick off your Mother’s Day celebrations with some of Boston’s premier brunch locations. They offer the dining, decor, and distinction that the women in your life deserve.
If you’re looking for something quintessential New England, look no further than Café Fleuri. Its owner, Executive Chef Mark Sapienza, has created a restaurant that takes inspiration—in ingredients, recipes, and design—from the best of the area. Food items and dishes come from local sources and the menu is rotated on a weekly basis to reflect New England’s changing seasonal tastes. Stand-out morning dishes include the House Smoked Maple Cured Salmon and Grilled Corned Beef Hash.
On Mother’s Day, Café Fleuri promises its annual buffet brunch that features live entertainment and activities for the kids. It lasts from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Liquid Art House
The Liquid Art House (often abbreviated to “L.A.H.”) angles itself as an experience. Patrons will find that it fuses culinary, artistic, and social needs as part of its mission. Dining takes places in a showroom/gallery setting that aims to dazzle both a patrons’ visual and flavor palate.
On the website, founder Rita Laukien explains that she “wanted to create a warm, approachable environment that appeals to everyone from collector to artist,” while noting that “art speaks to our soul.” Favored dishes at the restaurant include the Australian lamb loin, tuna tartare, and the Lithuanian cheese dumplings.
On Mother’s Day, the L.A.H. will be offering an all-you-can-eat buffet. Your entire family can endlessly feast on what satisfies the soul and stomach.
Bistro du Midi
Located on Boylston Street next to the Boston Public Garden, the Bistro du Midi offers a scenic and celebratory site for all—including families looking to brunch on Mother’s Day.
The Bistro du Midi is known city-wide for its decadent and delicious brunch menu. The dishes most poised to leave patrons raving include the goat cheese gnocchi, the croque monsieur, the citrus cured Faroe Island salmon benedict, and the yellowfin tuna tartare. Mothers deserve only the best, so why not reward them with high-end cuisine?
The Mother’s Day brunch promises offers of all the previously-named dishes (and more) through a three course meal that includes a first course, main course, and dessert course (something absent from most brunch offerings). Make sure the women in your family end their day’s first meal on something sweet, like the wild blueberry cheesecake or the Meyer lemon pound cake.
