Where to Dine for Mother's Day Across the Country

We owe our moms a lot, so of course they deserve a holiday all to themselves! Show your mother how much you appreciate her this Mother's Day with a meal at one of these delicious restaurants on Sunday, May 11.

Boston

Nothing says “appreciation” like a trip to Clio to indulge in what pastry chef Monica Glass has created for Mother's Day weekend. Mother’s Day is especially close to chef Glass’ heart, and to honor her mother, while allowing others to celebrate theirs, she has prepared special elegant desserts. Options include: a passion fruit mousse with hibiscus, coconut ash, linden blossom, and sour cream; and Chocolat à la Menthe, which features frozen mint tea and chocolate. You can enjoy these treats after a lovely dinner, as snacks at the bar, or just by themselves. Thirty percent of proceeds will go toward The Women’s Lunch Place — a nonprofit supporting local women and children struggling with poverty.

Chef Josh Lewin honors moms around town like no other with his Mother’s Day brunch at Beacon Hill Bistro. For $39 a person, you can indulge in options like roasted asparagus salad, Faroe Island salmon, and brioche French toast. Finish the meal off with a tasty treat from their dessert cart and you will all be ready to seize the day — or spend the rest of it perusing the antique and boutique stores along Charles Street or strolling through the Commons. Brunch will be served from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

As per usual, Beat Hotel has something up their sleeve for both brunch and dinner for Mother's Day and it involves more than just food and drink. In addition to their wonderful menus, live jazz tunes will fill this Harvard Square spot from 10 a.m to 3:30 p.m. this Mother's Day. À la carte brunch will also be offered and include some great dishes like wild flower honey and lemon pancakes. Specially crafted cocktails will be featured in addition to Beat's roster of 24 American wines. It’s a win-win-win for you, mom, and your tummies!

So maybe you can’t go to Paris for Mother's Day, but the next best thing is a full-blown brunch overlooking the Boston Public Gardens at Bistro du Midi. Chef Robert Sisca offers a selection of starters such as a classic Caesar with anchovies, tuna tartare, and smoked white asparagus soup. Main dishes include poached egg with cured salmon and American caviar, heirloom beet gnocchi, pan-roasted hake, or a grilled Colorado rack of lamb. Dessert features options like espresso ice cream and lemon pistachio tart. Enjoy all this and an exquisite view for $50 a person.

Chef Chris Coombs plans to shake things up at Boston Chops for the mom’s in town with a three-course prix fixe menu. Start with a few items perfect for sharing, including a basket of freshly baked croissants, sticky buns and scones, or fresh fruit plate.

Paso Robles, CA: Brunch at Eberle Winery (May 9)

How are you planning to celebrate?

crpaulk I agree, rarely is any city West of the Mississippi mentioned or has a blogger to add a voice to the mix on Epicurious, maybe San Francisco. Nice, but not good enough for a quick glance and then a rolled lip and a turned and spurned away attitude towards the bounty of the West.

I LOVE Seattle too! We&aposve had some great meals and wonderful times there!

My mother takes a cruise for her Mother&aposs Day and that is her treat for herself. She goes with several of her lifelong friends and they all live life big for two weeks. We do other things for her. We live far away from her, but for the last ten or so years, we have paid a landscaping company to do her spring plantings for her. She loves that because it is always so beautiful, but also because her knees are bad and her arthritis gets the best of her when she&aposs cramped on the ground for too long.

My family is great on Mother&aposs Day. We have a few of our kids away at college these days, so we&aposre not always together anymore, and Mother&aposs Day doesn&apost warrant time away from school for them.

However, my favorite Mother&aposs Days have been with all my family home, making breakfast and giving me cards and flowers. I feel like a queen with the laughter and enjoyment, and sometimes the few sparks of fights the kids have had over the years are now legend in our home and we laugh about them.

My husband especially honors me each Mother&aposs Day. He goes all out big. Being a diabetic, being pregnant five times was a little difficult on me physically and somehow, I not only survived, but thrived. So, on the day that means so much to the two of us.. making and having our family.. the honoring of carrying and caring for our children, he is humbled, and as wild and strong and all-man as he is.. I am humbled and honored by his tender love and his gifts.

Many times, the best parts of life are involved with food. And, sometimes, they are involved with just a lot of love and happiness!

My mother prefers home-cooking to any type of restaurant experience, and she&aposs quite stubborn about it. So . thank you for posting this blog, because it made me put my thinking cap on earlier than usual .

Mind you, now that I think about it, the menu will probably centre on lobsters. We usually have a nice salad, but don&apost go in for the melted butter and dangerous add-ons. We&aposre lucky to live on the east coast of Canada, where the lobster season is still in effect in May.

Mom lives somewhere else but my siblings will treat her like the Queen she is!

Hi! I do try to give every area of the country a fair shake. Washington state had listings in three events roundups in a row at the end of Feb., beginning of March, for example, so I&aposm certainly not ignoring you! I always invite people to post what&aposs happening where they live too, as you have done here, which is a great way to spread word of events.

Joanna it may rain 360 days a year, in Seattle, but I don&apost think we&aposre in the Siberia of culinary events either. (You rarely mention us!) Did we insult you? Local events this weekend include:
The veg fest- http://www.vegofwa.org/vegfest/
And the Anacortes Wine Festival
http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/mbase/cgi-bin/DisplayPage.pl?document_id=2011091657

Great place to take Mom in Seattle?

Dad of 4-Year-Old Slain in Dallas Apologizes for Leaving Kids

via Trevor GernonThe father of the 4-year-old boy kidnapped from his bed and dumped dead on a Dallas street says he will never forgive himself for leaving his son and his twin brother with a friend while he skipped town under a cloud of legal problems.Trevor Gernon released a recorded statement on his sister’s YouTube account both apologizing for not taking care of his son Cash and asking the public not to be too hard on him.Gernon said that when he moved to Dallas, he moved in with an old friend, Monica Sherrod, and when he moved back to Houston “after an unsuccessful job hunt amongst other things,” he decided they would be better off with her.“I felt it was in the boys’ best interest to not disrupt their routine,” he said of Cash and his brother, Carter, who was not harmed and is now with his mother.“They were comfortable, they were around other kids, and from what it appeared, Monica was a trustworthy person. This choice I made with best of intentions has resulted in a most horrific outcome.”On May 15, an intruder was caught on a baby monitor camera sneaking into Cash and Carter’s bedroom at Sherrod’s home and lifting the still-sleeping boy from his bed.Two hours later, a passer-by found the child’s body tossed on the street. Police said he had been stabbed.Darriynn Brown, 18, who has some nebulous ties to Sherrod’s family, was charged with kidnapping and burglary, but police are waiting for the results of forensic tests to make a decision on murder charges. Investigators have not released a motive, and Brown’s mother has said she believes her son is being framed.Sherrod told reporters that Gernon left town after being ordered by a court into rehab. CrimeOnline obtained court records showing several outstanding charges against Gernon in Harris County.Gernon referenced his legal issues, saying in the recording, “I have to fear for my freedom, as it is the goal of some to see me go to jail rather than grieve the loss of my little boy.” He did not disclose his location or legal status.Crying at times, he did take responsibility for failing to protect the twins.“I have paid the most ultimate and painful price for my poor judgment and I have to live with this devastation every single day,” he said.“I will never forgive myself. If I could, I would go back and do everything different. This is a nightmare that doesn’t go away once I open my eyes in the morning. We just don’t understand how this could happen to such a bright and cheerful kid.”Addressing the boys’ mother, Melinda Seagroves, he added, “I am so sorry that I failed to keep him safe. That is my job as his dad and I was not able to do that and I’m sorry.”As The Daily Beast reported, Gernon has racked up a string of arrests over the years, serving 68 days in county lockup for a 2018 assault on his father during an argument over a credit-card bill.The Strange New Turn in the Case of 4-Year-Old Cash GernonFollowing his indictment on felony drug possession charges last November, he failed to appear for a March 29, 2021, hearing and thus forfeited a $10,000 bond payment. There is now an open warrant out for his arrest.Johnny Flanagan, whose son gave Gernon a job at his shop until they had a falling-out, told The Daily Beast: “He’s one of these guys that kind of goes whichever way the wind blows, you know, and he’ll do good for several months and then do bad for several months and you know, just up and disappear.”In the recording, Gernon pleaded for mercy in the court of public opinion.“I’m barely getting through a day that doesn’t take me to a dark place,” he said. “I hope you all could understand how fragile we all are and how quickly things can turn upside down…“I would hope that we can all cooperate and band together to make sure Cash gets the justice he deserves.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
