San Franciscans don’t need an additional reason to fetter away half the Sunday sipping mimosas and eating eggs, but Mother’s Day this Sunday offers an excuse to indulge in a more elegant brunch.
Restaurants around the city are unveiling special menus aimed to impress moms, grandmothers, aunts, baby mamas and more. Here are five San Francisco brunch restaurants worth considering:
Diners might need a post-meal hike at the nearby Sutro Baths after indulging in meaty entrees like braised short ribs ($22) with horseradish mashed potatoes or smoked pork griddle cakes ($19) with spiced bourbon syrup and Meyer lemon butter. Non-carnivorous mothers can opt for tuna tartare ($14) with apples or a wild mushroom omelet ($14) with goat cheese.
Espetus Churrascaria offers a variety of unique Brazilian with the potential to keep diners full throughout the day with an all-you-can-eat buffet ($54.95) featuring ceviche, paella, and various traditional cuts of beef, lamb, chicken pork, sausage and shrimp, all carved tableside.
Le P’tit Laurent offers brunch specials like pancakes with smoked salmon and dill cream, frisée salad with bacon and poached egg, or escargots from Burgundy.
At this SoMA suave spot, the Mother’s Day prix fixe brunch menu ($35) delivers decadence. Savory dishes include a lobster Benedict with prosciutto ($4 supplemental) and grilled Louisiana gulf prawns with grits. Bing cherry pancakes with pickled ginger and chocolate lean toward the sweeter side of the taste spectrum.
For a markedly more casual Mother’s Day meal, Curry Up Now in the Mission offers reimagined Indian street food with all moms receiviving one complimentary item from the menu as well as a cup of coffee or chai.
