Where to wine and dine your mom

Delight Mom with a meal at Supper.
Delight Mom with a meal at Supper.

If you didn’t pay enough attention to mom’s magic in the kitchen, then the greatest Mother’s Day gift might just be to spare her from your cooking by taking her out for an unforgettable meal — no cleanup required. Even if you think your mom is fussy, we’ve got something for her. In fact, whether you’re making reservations for brunch or dinner, we’ve got something for every mom.

For the ‘comfort foodie’

Supper
If the lady digs comfort food but seeks to taste a more elevated version, put Supper’s brunch menu in front of her. The South Street restaurant knows they don’t need to change a thing, so they’ll be serving up their standard brunch, which includes options like eggs Benedict on garlic knots with tomato jam and pork shoulder hot dogs with a side of fried pickles.

For the cool mom

Sabrina’s
Bring mom to the place where you and your buddies go to nurse hangovers. Of course, brunch in Philly isn’t complete without a long wait on the sidewalk, and Sabrina’s, especially the Bella Vista location, is among the worst offenders. Though if your stomach growls loud enough, they just might pass around a plate of pastries to tide you over. Either way, the restaurant, with its cleverly named and perfectly executed rotating specials, is well worth it. Just make sure you warn mom about the comically large portions.

For the fancy mom

Bistrot La Minette
Give your lovely mother a high-class dining experience at this French Philly staple. Typically this place has more of a romantic feel to it, but on Mother’s Day it’s all about spoiling your mama, who, by the way, totally deserves it. Call her more. On Sunday, let her dine on duck liver pate, braised rabbit and a generous serving of red wine.

For the adventurous mom

BlueCat Restaurant
Head to Latin America without leaving Fairmount. For the mothers craving spicy food, or those who want to excite their palate, BlueCat’s Latin cuisine will do the trick. This BYOB offers a great atmosphere and authentic dishes. Be sure not to skip the oxtail stew.

For the casual mom

Garces Trading Company
You know you can’t go wrong with a Jose Garces joint. Garces Trading Company is great for the mama who wants to try a little of everything. Though the plates are small and designed for sharing, don’t confuse this place for Garces’ much pricier Amada, which serves Spanish tapas. The Trading Co. is more low-key, and equipped with a bakery and wine shop so Mom can get everything she wants.
