Mamma mia, there are a lot of options for May 13! Here are just seven suggestions of where to make a reservation (very important) and treat the woman who got you through life’s bumps and bruises.
Get in a little bonding time before Mother’s Day at Nove Italiano, where executive chef Geno Bernardo leads a five-course Mother’s Day menu cooking class including veal sweetbreads and lobster ravioli. Or go solo and learn some new tricks to make an at-home feast for the family matriarch. In the Palms, noon, May 12, $85 per person, Palms.com.
If your mère has exquisite taste, make reservations at Comme Ça. Chef David Myers and executive chef Brian Howard have concocted a special three-course prix-fixe menu for Mom on Sunday.

Spice up the day by bringing Mama to Tacos & Tequila for a three-course Dia De Las Madres brunch featuring albondigas soup, chorizo-potato relleno, chicken sabana and more.
