Shower Mom with Flowers... and Brunch at Ristorante Asellina
Along with Valentine's Day, Mother's Day is one of the biggest days for florists everywhere — just do the math. So nix the hassle and create an arrangement yourself at New York City's Ristorante Asellina, where brunch and a bouquet come together.
Ristorante Asellina, located in the Gansevoort Park Avenue Hotel, invites diners to treat Mom to an extravagant menu filled with dishes like sage and orange pappardelle, veal ravioli, and shrimp frittata, all served with champagne.
Before the meal, get creative and build a bouquet of fresh flowers from the flower cart, and indulge in a signature cocktail called the Rosolio — it's made up of Bacardi Razz, prosecco, rose water, 7UP, and muddled rose petals.
With all the bases covered by Asellina, all you need to do is pick up a card — and don't forget the hug and kiss!
