Two For Mum: Mother’s Day Brunch & Spa Combos

Read next

It may seem like the biggest Mother’s Day cliché (next to corner deli flowers) but we’ve yet to meet an NYC mom who would be bummed about being treated to brunch on May 14th. But, in a city that’s teeming with brunch spots, it may feel impossible to pick just the right one. Not to worry. We did the taste-testing for you and, behold, our list of more than a dozen places the mom in your life will absolutely love. Bonus: We’ve paired each with a nearby spa: The ultimate Mother’s Day double feature!

For a Euro Brunch: Maman

Invite mom to Maman’s Tribeca or Greenpoint locations and watch as she delights in the elegant French garden feel. After all, Maman, which means "mom" in French, is a happy space known for its tartines, croques and brioche perdu, fresh flowers and welcoming atmosphere. No reservations are taken but brunch is being served all Mother’s Day weekend long from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. so there’s plenty of time to revel in a new menu addition—the Maman Breakfast sandwich, which features bourbon bacon jam, fresh avocado, fried egg and oven-roasted tomatoes. Want to start celebrating Mother’s Day early? Invite that cutie in your life for a Kid’s Workshop Saturday, May 13 (4-5 p.m., Maman Tribeca) during which you can make flower pot desserts filled with chocolate pudding, delicious toppings and decorated on top with handmade flowers your kids can make. Included in the workshop: Light bites for kids and adults, a mini-flower pot per child to decorate, fill and supplies to make the handmade flowers (ages 3+; $50). <strong>Chill: </strong>In Tribeca, head to the<a target="_blank" href="http://www.thegreenwichhotel.com/shibui-spa/"&gt; Shibui Spa in the Greenwich Hotel </a>for the Drunken Lotus (60 or 90 min $220/$300), the spa's signature massage with customized strokes and hot, sake-soaked towels to release tired muscles, and jojoba, cucumber and essential oils nourish skin. 211West Broadway 646-882-8682 80 Kent St. Greenpoint 347-689-9195 Online: <a target="_blank" href="http://www.mamannyc.com">mamannyc.com</a&gt; <em>photo: Victoria Morris/Maman </em>fuck
