You can bring mom to Bergamot in Cambridge to celebrate Mother’s Day with a three-course prix fix brunch. With appetizers like olive oil poached salmon; grilled corn bread with crispy ham, spring onion, and cream cheese; or short stack buttermilk pancakes; entrées like the Fisherman’s brunch of pollock fish cakes, linguiça, fried egg, and hollandaise; soufflé omelet with smoked haddock; or breakfast pizza. Dessert offerings include PBJ donuts, a cheese plate, or mint chocolate trifle. This menu is $44 per guest and does not include beverages.
If your mother is in the mood for something a little more active and different – or perhaps simply more competitive – make a reservation at Brass Union. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., chef Jonathan Kopacz’s brunch menu will be served with a variety of breakfast sandwiches like their egg sandwich with two fried eggs and whipped goat cheese, along with other brunch items like their Greek yogurt with lavender honey and house-made granola.
Chef Todd Winer offers a wonderful take on Mother’s Day brunch over in Fort Point at Pastoral. For $42, guests enjoy a three-course meal and a cocktail from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. with mom. With Calabrian spumantai, cinnamon and walnut rotalo, lemon ricotta donut served with berries, shaved asparagus salad with buffalo mozzarella, and a wood fired gondola sandwich, there is something sweet or savory for everyone.
Celebrate your mother in the seaport with some of the most beautiful views of the harbor, as Rosa Mexicano offers a festive option for Mother’s Day this year. El Dia de Las Madres is celebrated with huevos Rosa (sunny side up eggs with crispy tortilla and refried beans), cinnamon-chile dusted French toast with mascarpone filling, and Mexico City chilaquiles. Enjoy these treats with any of their delightful cocktails and this Mother’s Day could very well become your favorite celebration yet.
