It’s still a bit more than a month away, but it’s never too soon to make a Mother’s Day reservation. OpenTable has launched our national page for Mother’s Day specials across the U.S. and in Canada and Mexico. There are tons of terrific prix-fixe offerings and special perks, such as the $10 bottomless glass of Champagne at Crab Landing in San Francisco (remember to take a taxi or enlist a designated driver!).
Beyond dining deals and discounts, you’ll also find an array of delicious dishes being prepared exclusively for deserving moms. The Harrison in Manhattan suggests their sublime Sunday sauce (just like Carmela Soprano would make — only better), while The Oak Room at The Plaza is making a decadent lobster eggs benedict. In D.C., Central Michel Richard recommends their take on a lobster burger, and neighboring Cure Bar & Bistro is baking up a special Maryland Blue Crab Pie. Chicago’s Park Grill has created a lemon verbena cheesecake (Before the perfume department at Bloomingdale’s was born, all moms smelled like lemon verbena.). At Salpicón, also in the Windy City, they’ve crafted a dish of prawns in tomatillo sauce, to appeal to mom’s spicier side. Spruce in the Bay Area is offering a super-seasonal, savory-crusted spring lamb. Bistro St. Tropez in Philadelphia is serving banana pan perdu — sure to satisfy mothers who have a sweet tooth. Speaking of sweet, LA’s Citizen Smith is offering a raspberry Pacific swordfish (I love savory dishes with a bit of sweet, don’t you?).
Hungry yet? I know I am, and the dishes listed here are just a smattering of the great meals that await you and your family on Mother’s Day. What is her favorite food to eat on her special day? Let us know what your mom has an appetite for and where you’re planning on taking her, here or over on Facebook.
