Your Guide to Mother’s Day in New York City
Every Mother has their ideal day in mind when it comes to how they’d most enjoy celebrating their day. With some of the city’s most celebrated spa’s, restaurants, and venues offering packages and deals for an amazing price, there are plenty of ways to show the special lady in your life how much she is appreciated. Whether it’s a luxurious day full of pampering and attention, or a brunch surrounded by those who matter most, here are our suggestions to make this Mother’s Day as special as possible.
Try something different than brunch on dry land and cruise around New York City’s beautiful harbor in a lavish yacht as you take in the sights of the Manhattan skyline all around you with a special Mother’s Day Brunch Cruise. Enjoy a deluxe brunch and mimosas inside the heated, glass encased observatory deck while enjoying 360 degree views of the city. The sail around the island lasts approximately 3 hours and spans the entire city from the Upper West Side to the beautiful seaport area and the Statue of Liberty. The tour departs from Pier 62 on the West Side, and more info can be found here.
If your mother is in need of stress relief, there is nothing like a day at the majestic and grand Guerlain Spa inside the historic Waldorf Astoria. “Forget Her Not” is the ultimate indulgent spa package where mom’s and mom’s-to-be will be treated to a signature 50-minute Guerlain massage or facial, but, as any gift giver knows, it’s all in the delivery and this present is hand delivered to Mom as a beautifully packaged gift with a dozen long-stemmed roses from Parisian floral boutique Ode à la Rose and a box of gourmet chocolates.
Isabella’s is an Upper West Side institution that never disappoints. This Mother’s Day won’t be any different, as they’re offering a special Brunch and Dinner Menu to choose from. Mediterranean and American fare are fused in the most exciting way here, and their outdoor patio offers the best of al fresco dining Uptown Manhattan has to offer. The soft-shell crab Benedict on the brunch menu will complement the enjoyable ambiance.
The Odeon in TriBeCa is a celeb hotspot so make sure to square away your reservations asap. The classic downtown chic establishment is critically acclaimed, formerly owned by celebrity chef Keith McNally, and epitomizes the TriBeCa neighborhood. Their lemon ricotta and poppy seed pancakes are an all time favorite, as is their legendary French toast.
SD26 in Murray Hill overlooks idyllic Madison Square Park and was named one of Esquire Magazine’s Best New Restaurants of the Year when it first opened. Their Mother’s Day prix fixe offering comprises the best their menu has to offer, homemade pastas and the best of a true Italian Sunday meal like veal and lamb. We recommend the homemade fettuccine, coriander scented baby lamb ragu with fava beans and fresh mint.
We wish you a Happy Mother’s Day wherever you end up celebrating!
