This Mother's Day, Treat Your Mom to a Delightful Meal in Prince George's County
Often times, it seems like Mother’s Day sneaks up on us each year. A day or so before the holiday, we’ll find ourselves rushing to purchase cards or gifts that we hope honor that special lady in all our lives.
Well, here’s your reminder! While Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 13) is three weeks away, making plans or setting reservations at a local restaurant now will ensure that you won’t have to run around for that perfect gift. And in the spirit of not waiting last minute, here are a few delicious ideas that will deliver a memorable experience for your mothers, wives, sisters, and grandmothers:
Brunch with mimosas–what mother wouldn’t adore that? The Red Sky Steak and Fish House, 14707 Baltimore Blvd in Laurel, will serve brunch on Mother’s Day from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. for $23.95 per person (for an extra $3, patrons will receive mimosas). The Red Sky serves a variety of fish and seafood, such as shrimp and mussels, as well as steak, chicken, and pasta dishes-all of which could make it onto the brunch menu.
The Old Towne Inn, 14745 Main Street in Upper Marlboro, is also holding a Mother’s Day buffet. The restaurant is still finalizing the buffet menu, but patrons are sure to find an item or two from its everyday menu, which features crab cakes and meatloaf. The buffet price is set for $27 per person.
If that special lady in your life loves live entertainment, then Proud Mary Restaurant, 13600 Kings Charles Ter in Fort Washington, is the place to be for Mother’s Day. The restaurant delivers Southern and Cajun flavors, and is located near the marina, which provides a picturesque atmosphere for celebrating mom. Reservations are required.
Moms craving Italian for Mother’s Day will be pleased with the buffet served at Topolino’s Restaurant, 6320 Old Branch Avenue in Camp Springs. Brunch is served every Sunday from 10:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. for the reasonable price of $15.99 per person. The brunch buffet at Topolino’s offers a wide variety of Italian-style foods, such as pasta, salads, and lamb. But don’t worry—there is no dry pasta on this buffet. Every item is fresh and replenished regularly to keep up with the pace of hungry guests. Those who arrive earlier for breakfast can take advantage of the restaurant’s all-you-can-eat omelet special.
Busboys and Poets, 5331 Baltimore Avenue in Hyattsville, is also an interesting choice for mom on her special day. The restaurant is primarily a place for the community to gather and share ideas, hosting performances, open-mic nights and other activities meant to raise social connections and awareness. For brunch, moms will find traditional fare like eggs, French toast, fruit, muffins and the like. However, Busboys and Poets offers some outside-the-box brunch choices, such as the buckwheat pancakes and Moroccan bean soup. Brunch as Busboys and Poets is served between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on holidays, Saturdays and Sundays (even Mother’s Day). Sons and daughters can look forward to treating their mothers for around $20 or less.
