Hey! Mother’s Day is just around the corner. It's this Sunday, May 10th. A bunch of flowers and a note simply won’t do; you’ve got to do something special for the Mom whose done it all for your family. Fortunately we’ve got ideas for every type of Mom that will make her smile on “her day.”

If Mom Wants Brunch on Mother's Day in Westchester

You’ve got so many yummy places to choose from, both in Southern and Northern Westchester. Check out Crabtree’s Kittle House in Chappaqua for classic and traditional fare. Or Rose Room in Mount Kisco, also in Northern Westchester for great Italian food.

If Mom wants a delicious meal with possible celebrity watching, you can’t go wrong with 42, The Restaurant at the Ritz Carlton in White Plains, with modern cuisine. If she adores brunch, look to Xaviars on the Hudson in Yonkers for a tempting, luxurious classic brunch with a modern twist. Mom may prefer French food and if so, try Encore Bistro in Larchmont or Red Hat on the River in Irvington.

Remember that Mother’s Day is a popular day to go out to eat so reservations are recommended at just about any place you think Mom would enjoy!

A four-course brunch including wine.

If you haven’t seen either the Broadway show or the movie Mamma Mia, featuring the ABBA songs, then you are in for a treat. The movie has Pierce Brosnan and Meryl Streep, to name just 2 of the well-known actors.

 Wishing Mom a Very Happy Mother’s Day! Enjoy!
