Five Places In OC to Dine for Mother's Day
Flowers? Check. Glittery card? Check. Reservations for Mother's Day? Good question. Here are a few last minute options for you to ponder. Don't forgot to make reservations!
Ways & Means Oyster House - Orange
Our recent On the Line subjects will be in the kitchen come Sunday for a full day of holiday dining. Brunch will be served between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. For $25, patrons are given options during their three-course prix fixe like a Benediction with braised duck leg. At night, the price amplifies to $45, but now includes items like white chocolate berry cobbler with streusel and housemade vanilla ice cream.
Royal Khyber - Costa Mesa
Serving an all-you-can-eat spread from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., festive $5 cocktails and custom omelettes make for a delicious afternoon. Stock up on lamb, fish and tandoori bread. Royal Khyber is charging $21.95 per adult, $15.95 for children under ten (exclusive of tax and gratuity).
Sapphire - Laguna Beach
Offering my favorite meal, Sapphire's brunch is being served from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. All meals start with a Southern pickled shrimp appetizer. From there, patrons choose from a selection of entrees and desserts. Noteworthy options include a pan-seared branzino in a red wine cioppino broth and a Mexican dark chocolate verrine made of Kahula caramel cremeux. Pricing for three courses starts at $58 (beverage, tax and gratuity not included).
Bistro Bleu - Anaheim
Situated so deep into Anaheim she'll think you're taking her to Zankou Chicken for Mother's Day, Bistro Bleu's comprehensive meal options are meant to accommodate many tastes. With a brunch, dinner and special dinner prix fixe, David Kesler's Cal-French fare is worth the drive. Save room for the chocolate souffle Edwin raves about.
