Make Mother’s Day Brunch, Dinner Reservations In Metro Detroit


METRO DETROIT – Everything mom did in the last year of the coronavirus pandemic should result in a special celebration for Mother’s Day 2021 on Sunday May 9th. To start the day off right, how about you take Mom to her favorite Metro Detroit brunch spot?

Many restaurants and eateries still limit the number of seats. It is therefore particularly important to reserve early this year. And if you’re still undecided about going to a restaurant, roadside pickup or delivery is an option in many places.

Some hometown restaurants here in Metro Detroit that are always good bets to indulge mom are:

  • The Hudson Cafe, 1241 Woodward Ave., Detroit
  • Edsel & Eleanor Ford House, 1100 Lake Shore Rd, Grosse Pointe Shores
  • MI.MOSA, 23360 Farmington Rd., Farmington
  • Selden Standard, 3921 2nd Ave., Detroit
  • Three Cats, 116 W 14 Mile Rd., Clawson

But call again in advance to get reservations. Some of your local favorites may be closed on Mother’s Day so the mothers who work there can have a day off with their families.

Many restaurants offer set menus, cocktails, decadent desserts, and five-star service.

Here are five more suggestions to get you started:

The Bonefish Grill in Novi offers its family-style Mahi & Shrimp meal for five, which includes a selection of salads and family side dishes made from mashed potatoes and vegetables, bread with pesto and a dessert duo of cheesecake and biscuits.

The Capital Grille in Troy offers a take-away service that includes a three-course seared beef tenderloin with a choice of butter-poached North Atlantic lobster tails or scampi-style jumbo prawns with green beans, mashed potatoes, and a baked flourless Chocolate espresso cakes and lemon tea biscuits are served.

The Cracker Barrel in Belleville offers free Mother’s Day delivery for a pancake breakfast (includes bacon or sausage and a choice of hash browns or fried apples) or a Sunday homestyle chicken (includes two boneless breasts, two side dishes, and buttermilk biscuits).
