Midtown East

Last Updated on September 21, 2019 by

These brunch spots will be sure to be the highlight of your day.

Many restaurants serve a special brunch menu for Mother’s Day beyond your normal scrambled eggs, avocado toast, poached egg or smoked salmon and some even have a prix fixe menu so be sure to contact the restaurant and try to put in a reservation if you can. If not, don’t worry most restaurants will accommodate walk-ins on Mother’s Day.
