Over the next few days, we'll be providing you folks with a few options for taking your lovely mothers out somewhere this weekend for Mother's Day. After all, they're the ones who allowed you to come into existence, fed, nurtured, and raised you — the least you could do is buy 'em a meal.
First on the list, Fox Restaurant ventures North Italian Farmhouse (2995 E. Skyline Drive) and Wildflower (7037 N. Oracle Rd.) are both running special Mother's Day brunches.
North plans to offer their spin on a baked french toast, as well as the "Nonna," which includes two fried eggs, red sauce, house-made sausage and torn bread, which executive chef Carlos Calderon calls "a comfort food favorite" — and I have it on fairly decent authority that it's a favorite dish of Calderon.
Wildflower's Mother's Day menu includes an Alaskan Halibut dish with asparagus risotto and a red onion salad; Quiche Florentine; and a Fried Egg Sandwich, with bacon, havarti cheese, avocado and tomato.
Are there any Mother's Day brunches or specials you think we should highlight? Send us a note!
