Mommy Dearest

It’s the second Sunday in May. Does that mean anything to you? Come on, now, think. Still stumped?

It’s Mother’s Day, you dolt. And you totally forgot. Again.

Oh well. It wouldn’t be Mother’s Day without a healthy serving of gut-wrenching guilt. Feel shame, but don’t panic, because we’ve got the perfect thing for you and Mom: Mother’s Day Brunch at Sassi.

She’ll forget all about your shortcomings when Sassi serves beautiful plates filled with asparagus and mushroom salad with truffle and white balsamic dressing; white corn polenta with Parma butter and strawberries; and a pacific halibut with braised artichokes, olives, and capers. Top off that meal with a yogurt and mascarpone cheesecake with pine-nut brittle, and you’ll be her favorite child.

Sun., May 9, 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., 2010
