Mother’s Day brunch seems to have become a tradition for many families. (Personally, I think a cruise for Mother’s Day would be a more appropriate tradition. Who’s with me?) I’m pretty sure I saw all the moms raise their hands. While I work on overhauling our Mother’s Day celebration guidelines, we’ve got some great restaurant suggestions for brunch on Mom’s special day.
