Where to Order Mother’s Day Brunch in Detroit and Southeast Michigan
Mother’s Day is Sunday May 9th, which means there isn’t much time left to reserve a table or pre-order a take-away meal.
Amid this pandemic, not every mom is ready to eat indoors, and some restaurants are disrupting service. Other local establishments offer socially distant, decadent eateries or sell kits and feasts to enjoy at home.
With restaurant capacity limited to 50 percent or 100 people, many seats have been booked or canceled this year, but a few professionals are on hand to celebrate mom this spring. Here are some with availability as of going to press.
