Categories: Holidays

Smile and say Mom!

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

And now for something different. . .

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

Chef Azmin can't pose like this forever, so do him a favor and dine here.

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

Kesler's got all sorts of options

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.
