Who doesn’t love their mom (hands down in the back; this clearly ISN’T for you)!!! With Mother’s Day around the corner – that’s Sunday May 14th, fact fans – we thought it best to look into what upcoming Mother’s Day events are taking place around Downtown LA so you’re not left scrambling for something to do at the last minute.

First up, you might wanna check out Nerano. The Beverly Hills restaurant is offering a beautiful array of Italian dishes on Mother’s Day. Executive Chef Michele Lisi will be serving up specialty appetizers like their Vellutata di Pomodoro, a chilled heirloom tomato and basil soup with bread tuile, as well as a house-made Pappardelle all’Astice with Maine lobster, English peas, and cherry tomatoes. For main courses, the restaurant will be serving a sea bream filet with asparagus, cherry tomatoes, fava beans and potato ragu, a USDA prime filet mignon with roasted fingerling potatoes, grilled white asparagus and chanterelle mushrooms. All guests over 21 will receive a complimentary blood orange mimosa.

Is Mom an anglophile? Then check out The Pikey on Sunset. On tap is a spring-focused menu for Mother’s Day Brunch and Dinner. Daytime specials include homemade coffee and cream doughnuts, a rhubarb and blood orange pavlova, ricotta and prosciutto tarts, a tasty ramp and morel mushroom omelet with fontina cheese as well as a lobster and spinach benedict on a cheddar biscuit. Not enough? In addition, Chef Johnson’s signature brunch menu will include a brioche French toast with seasonal fruit, house-cured Steelhead salmon with scrambled eggs, a full English breakfast with fried eggs, sausage, bacon, beans, roasted tomatoes and mushroom with grilled toast and much more. Like Nerano’s, for Mother’s Day, all guests will receive a complimentary Bloody Mary or Mimosa with brunch, and all day bottomless bloody mary or mimosas are available for $15.

Or maybe Mom prefers Mexican food. Well how about you hit up Broken Spanish at 1050 S. Flower St? In honor of mom this year, Broken Spanish will open its doors for a special brunch! Located in the heart of downtown L.A., Chef Ray Garcia will serve up brunch from 11am to 2:30pm with highlights like tres leches French toast, chicharron con huevos and other modern Mexican brunch specialties.

Wherever you decide to take Mom, have a great time and tell her we wish her a very happy Mother’s Day!!
