Mothers are truly among the best of us. Their generous love, selfless nurturing and unwavering support throughout every stage in our lives make them worthy of praise every day. While we should be grateful and good to mom all the time, Mother’s Day is a special day to go above and beyond for the woman who raised you. Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and if you haven’t gotten a plan together just yet, don’t fret. You have options and it’s not too late. Why not kick off the ‘mom’- entous occasion with a lovely brunch at a local eatery? It’s the perfect way to start your Mother’s Day celebration. Here are a few fine establishments that would love to host you and mom this Mother’s Day.
Plant Riverside District
Treat your mom to a lavish buffet featuring an assortment of Michelin Star chef-prepared delicacies in Plant Riverside District’s striking Salzburg Ballroom. In addition to a wide variety of toothsome culinary offerings — including hand-carved Smoked Brisket, Rumchata French Toast, sushi, pastries and more — attendees will receive a glass of champagne and a long-stemmed rose for mom. But that’s not all. Acclaimed musical trio STRINGFYRE from Orlando will perform live music throughout the brunch. Reservations are available on OpenTable.com.
St. Neo’s Brasserie
The opulent Drayton Hotel’s on-site restaurant, St. Neo’s Brasserie has curated a special Mother’s Day multi-course menu. Start on a sweet note with some warm, fluffy beignets and follow it up with your choice of appetizer — options include a classic Caesar Salad, Lowcountry fave Shrimp & Grits or a Braised Duroc Pork Belly. For the main entree, choose between a Frittata, Surf and Turf or Sole a la Meuniere. Round out the dining experience with a Key Lime Tart or a decadent Double Layer Chocolate Cake. It’s sure to be a meal that mom won’t soon forget.
Fleeting, Thompson Savannah’s upscale eatery, is offering a mouthwatering Mother’s Day menu featuring flavorful, farm-fresh, local ingredients. Menu highlights include Stevedore Biscuits, Blueberry French Toast, Summer Squash Frittata, Anson Mills Hominy Grits and Orange and Cardamom Creme Brulee for dessert. For an extra special Mother’s Day, let the celebration carry over into Monday — because one day simply isn’t enough to honor mom. On May 15, enjoy a night out with mom for the Equinox Orchestra x Thompson Hotel: Ode to Mothers Extravaganza. Cocktail hour starts at 6 p.m. with the Fabulous Equinox Orchestra taking the stage at 7 p.m. And stick around for the after party at Bar Julian.
Savannah Riverboat Cruises
Do something a little different this year and take mom on a spectacular cruise of the Savannah River. Savannah Riverboat is offering two Mother’s Day cruises this year, one for brunch and one for dinner. Both cruises include a delicious buffet and live entertainment with options to upgrade your package for the special occasion. The brunch cruise departs at 1 p.m. with the dinner cruise sailing at 7 p.m. What a great way to show mom how much you appreciate her!
