Show Mom Love
Every Mother’s Day, it’s the same:
Us: “Mom, what do you really want for Mother’s Day? Let’s do something special!”
Mom: “Oh, I just want to hang out with my kids. That’s the best gift of all.”
Mom, we get it. We’re an unusually perfect child. We inherited your shiny hair and amazing social skills. And while we love hanging out with you too, this year, we want to do something to show you how awesome and truly fabulous you are.
When it comes to moms, simple is usually better, and a well-planned surprise always works best. That’s why we’ve made a tradition of sneaking away to a sweet brunch at a new location each Mother’s Day weekend. Where will we dine this year? Here are our top suggestions:
108 N. State St., 312-346-7777
Yes, cupcakes count as brunch, and Magnolia Bakery is offering sweet treats made especially for mom. Grab your favorite flavor from behind the counter, or pre-order a dozen with a custom Mother’s Day message.
225 N. Wabash Ave., 312-960-8500
The über-chic Hotel Monaco will host a Mother’s Day Grand Buffet in the Paris Ballroom. We’re going for the tableside bloody mary and mimosa carts. Call 312-236-9300 to make a reservation.
The Peninsula Hotel
108 E. Superior St., 312-337-2888
Looking for a luxury experience? Head over to The Peninsula. Brunch will include an Amuse Station inspired by farmers market finds, soft-shell crabs from The Lobby, a New England Style clam bake, Crab Cakes from Pierrot Gourmet, and more.
52 W. Illinois St., 312-222-1888
From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., you and your very hip mom can order up brunch favorites at the Rancics’ super popular downtown spot. Check out the fabulous salads including the Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Creamy Avocado or the Rustic Tuscan Kale and Heirloom Spinach.
