Panic! Sunday is Mother’s Day, and you said you’d take her to dinner on her special day! You didn’t make a reservation yet, and everyone’s got to be booked, right? Why oh why does Mother’s Day come earlier every year?
Worry not, dear procrastinators. We’ve found you three terrific places to take her, so you can show her how well she raised you. All of them have tables available around 6pm on Sunday. There’s only so much we can do, though - stop wasting time and call these places now!
•Located on the first floor of the Colonnade, Brasserie Jo looks just like some of our favorite restaurants in Paris, but on a larger scale, to accommodate the countless Francophilic diners of America. Go ahead, have the foie gras, served with braised oxtail and parsnips.
•Is Mom up for a little spice? Take her to one of our favorite Indian restaurants! Kashmir is located on the quieter side of ever-charming Newbury St., in an even more charming room downstairs. Make sure you try the Peshwary naan, which is stuffed with dried fruits, shredded coconut, and potatoes.
•The Mother’s Day brunch at UpStairs on the Square might be booked solid, but why not go there for dinner? Try anything from the menu and be as touched by the whimsy as the decor. We would recommend the ravioli of sweet English peas.
