Mother’s Day Brunches
Almost all of the restaurants featured in last month’s Easter brunch roundup are holding court this Sunday, so in the interest of avoiding repeats, Nosh points you to six other options for feting the special lady.
Allium on Orcas 10—2
Hop the 10:35 ferry to Orcas Island, where Mom is treated to fresh fruit with vanilla cream and a hint of Grand Marnier and an entree of baked ham with sour cherries, wild mushroom and truffle medley, or halibut with tarragon pesto. $39/adult; reservations recommended.
BOKA Kitchen and Bar 8—2:30
Start with the generous seafood platter then move on to the inventive mains like braised veal cheek hash. Individual items $9-$15/person; call for reservations.
Cafe Flora 9—2
The highlights of this vegetarian repast? Hibiscus scones and orange cinnamon twists, truffled asparagus benedict, spring foraged tartlet, and a huckleberry chevre French toast. $23/adults, $14/children; reservations recommended.
Piatti Ristorante and Bar 10—3
Let Mumsie kick back with a sparkling pomegranate mimosa or a peach nectar bellini while the rest of the family feasts on rock shrimp scramble, eggs pomodoro, or omelet with rosemary ham. Individual items $11.50-12.60/person, $6.50 for kids brunch; reservations recommended.
Volunteer Park Cafe 8—4:30
Locally sourced, farm fresh ingredients perk up this four-course family style meal featuring chilled English pea bisque, olive oil poached halibut, seasonal greens with citrus vinaigrette, herb roasted lamb rack, and strawberry shortcake. $65/adults, $15/child; reservations recommended.
