Now that it is finally warm enough to be outside, go ahead and treat Mom to a meal at one of Boston's picturesque outdoor cafes. The cream of the crop is Oleana's patio with a fountain, herb garden and fig tree. They offer some of the best food in Boston, which will make for a great Mother's Day.
On Mother's Day, Tryst will be featuring a special two-course, prix fixe brunch menu. The special menu features lemon ricotta pancakes, breakfast pizza with eggs, house-made sausage, herbed goat cheese and caramelized onions, along with Tryst's signature steak and eggs. The best part: brunch is only $20 per person.
The Rattlesnake's beloved patio is being outfitted in the coming weeks with its own rooftop kitchen. You can treat mom to chef Brian Poe's whimsical and inventive menu with dishes such as Hudson Valley duck tacos and mac and cheese with shaved Taza chocolate.
If you're looking to say Happy Mother's Day with both some flora and gourmet goodies, Pemberton is your one-stop shop. Out front is the garden area, with plants and anything your mom might need for tending to her garden. Then walk past the garden area to find an array of gourmet and prepared foods.
For the foodie mommy, there's no better place than Formaggio for gourmet treats. The cheese selection alone is daunting, with hundreds of varieties, and you can also choose cured meats, chocolates, preserves, pastries, honey, dairy, dried fruit and nuts, flowers... the list goes on and on.
