Salish Lodge
Turn Mother’s Day into Mother’s Weekend with a night at the lodge and spa. The special lady gets $50 towards the spa treatment of her choice, a bottle of sparking wine, and sugar-dusted truffles. Then indulge in a three-course breakfast with a vegetarian omelet, smoked salmon hash, or the “Railroad Avenue” featuring eggs, pork-apple sausage, ham, and bacon. Visit the Salish Lodge website for reservations and pricing information.

The four-course dinner features Quinault River spring salmon tartar, duck sausage bucatini pasta, 48 hour–braised beef short ribs, and a coconut caramel citrus candy bar. Make a reservation online.
When: 5
Price: $75

An evening of nine courses revolving around foraging finds from the “field, forest, and seashore.” Menu includes Chinook salmon, wild mushroom gateau, licorice fern duck, and more (it’s nine courses, remember?). Arrive 30 minutes early for a garden tour. Reservations required.
When: 4:30
Price: $195

Volunteer Park Cafe
A baby arugula salad with chevre and strawberries precedes an herb-roasted chicken with a tomato, asparagus, and white bean panzanella. Chocolate raspberry tart closes out chef-owner Ericka Burke’s three-course supper—and did we mention Mom gets a complimentary glass of champagne? Reservations required.
When: 6
Price: $30
