At the Sofitel in Center City, there is Chez Colette. They are offering a family style 13-course brunch with a glass of champagne included for each person. Not that you will still be hungry, but there is a make-your-own Bloody Mary bar with so many ingredients, it is almost like another meal.
Brunch is in full bloom at Lola's Garden in Ardmore for their very first Mother's Day. The food is as beautiful as the décor here and you can wash it all down with a handcrafted cocktail, like their frothy Espresso Martini.
At Amada in Old City, they are bringing it Spanish style on their brunch menu with the help of, well, me! I showed them the best way to make a mimosa, and by that I mean just pouring champagne into a glass without orange juice. They have some savory dishes to choose from like the flatbread topped with chorizo, egg, béchamel, and mushrooms, and the sweetest fig French toast that they let me decorate myself.
DePaul's Table in Ardmore is offering three brunch courses and dinner specials too. It is all about exceptional service here, and we have to be honest, there is nothing quite like a perfectly cooked steak and eggs.
New Liberty Distillery in South Kensington is offering three spring themed cocktail classes in their outdoor garden space. Mom can experiment with gin and get a lesson in mixology, and she gets to drink her work when she is all finished.
I'm always impressed with Positano Coast in Old City and I almost have no words for their special dinner menu... I said almost. The lobster ravioli was rich but light at the same time, filled with chunks of lobster and topped with sweet shrimp. And that zucchini crab cake, please just order it. It might be my favorite dish in the entire city of Philadelphia, and that speaks volumes.
