Mother's Day Restaurants

Here comes another Mother's Day. 2005 seems to be flying by, doesn't it? Of course, many of us are thinking what Boston restaurants might be good places to go for Mother's Day. Here are a couple of thoughts: First, since many restaurants increase their prices greatly for Mother's Day, make sure you ask whether they will have a special menu that day. And this question is important not just for money reasons; many places have a very limited menu on Mother's Day. Second, some places will just be too crowded, and even if you have a reservation, they may be too crazed too have an enjoyable meal.

Having said all this, let me mention a few slightly lesser-known restaurants in the Boston area that would be great places to go for Mother's Day. For Italian food, check out Cafe Marliave in Boston or Luciano's in Wrentham. For steak and seafood, you can't go wrong with Frank's Steak House in Cambridge or, if you want to take a longer, scenic ride, Noah's in Stonington, CT. For buffets, look into The Old Mill in Westminster or China Blossom in North Andover. And for more upscale food, you might want to look into Cafe Apollonia in Roslindale. All of these restaurants are excellent, and you have at least a fighting chance of getting a table for Mother's Day.
