Mother's Day is right around the corner. It's a time to celebrate everything our moms do for us, how hard they work, and show them how much we care about them.
...Are we the only ones who maybe sort of forgot about it until this week? You can't blame us too much. We're busy! We have things going on! We had Netflix to watch!
Okay, okay. There are no excuses.
Our moms are awesome, and they do so much for us every single day, so it's time we show her a little gratitude.
And what better way to do that than with a delicious brunch in the city? We know its a little last minute to be making plans, but we've managed to track down some amazing spots that are still taking reservations.
Read on to find out what they are.
1. Jane (100 West Houston Street)
Mom definitely won't be disappointed with this lovely little spot in the West Village. They offer a ton of delicious breakfast items, the most well-loved being their many variations on Eggs Benedict.
It's a perfect place for enjoying a quiet, cozy morning with your family, and perhaps a walk around the Village afterwards.
2. The Astor Room (3511 35th Avenue - Queens)
If your mom knows how to have a good time, consider The Astor Room for Mother's Day brunch. The bottomless mimosas and live music are sure to help her unwind and relax after a long week.
Make a reservation on their gorgeous outdoor patio, and it'll be like you're taking your mom on a mini vacation!
3. Dovetail (103 West 77th Street)
We all want to feel a little fancy and enjoy decadent desserts from time to time, right? We're almost certain that our moms wouldn't mind that.
In addition to an amazing brunch menu and super helpful wait staff, Dovetail offers some of the most incredible desserts you'll find in the city, including a coconut cream opera cake with mango buttercream and an out of this world chocolate souffle.
Uh, yeah, we think mom would be okay with that.
4. Arco Cafe (886 Amsterdam Avenue)
Arco is the perfect place for a simple, low-key Italian brunch on the Upper West Side. They've got an entire separate Benedict menu, so despite the chill vibe of this place, you know they're not messing around when it comes to the food.
Which is very important to us.
5. Robert (2 Columbus Circle)
We're all on a fixed budget, but Mom deserves a little pampering (especially on Mother's Day), right?
Robert offers a pre-fixed Mother's Day menu for $105 a pop.
Which isn't too bad once you consider all the money our moms have spent on us over the years, from buying us stupid sh*t we begged for for our birthdays to covering our air fare home for the holidays.
And plus, for that view of Columbus Circle, it's DEFINITELY worth it.
6. Miranda Restaurant (80 Berry Street - Brooklyn)
Italian/Latin fusion might sound a bit off-putting, but trust us, Miranda does it right. It's a perfect place to enjoy a great cocktail and some uniquely scrumptious food with mom on her special day.
Plus, they bake their own breads and make their own hot sauce, so how can you go wrong?
