Sunday is Mother's Day, and (especially if you don't do it throughout the year) you'd better find a way to honor the woman that gave you life. Brunch is the traditional meal of the holiday, and there are plenty of those in the Phoenix area if your mom loves waffles, omelettes, and bacon. But there are also other things to consider when planning a celebration, like timing, budget, and location. With that in mind, here's a breakdown of delicious Mother's Day menus that fit every family's needs.
Sunday menu receives special treatment for Mother's Day at Petite Maison. The three-course prix fixe menu includes three choices of appetizer, entrée, and dessert - plus flowing champagne and mimosas. Mom will feel extra special while enjoying dishes like beet-cured salmon gravlax and toasted house brioche with caperberries, crepes suzette with Grand Marnier and fresh mint, angus bistro steak with caramelized shallots and gruyere Yorkshire pudding, and chicken paillard with crispy poached egg and black truffle. Desserts include a warm jumbo beignet with fruit preserves and toasted pound cake with roasted plums. Available from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., brunch is $49 per person. There is also an enfants menu for diners under 10, priced at $19, including vanilla brioche French toast and smoked bacon. Reservations are required; call 480-991-6887 or book online.
