Mother’s Day Countdown is on. If you haven’t made plans for mom or you are the DIY type, we’ve got some luxe options to celebrate the day in style.
At Brentwood’s Baltaire, Exec Chef Travis Strickland‘s sophisticated but approachable Mother’s Day Brunch ($85/adult;$45/child) from 10 am to 3 pm will feature pastries (banana bread, croissants, muffins) Eggs Benedict on housemade English muffins, French Toast with mixed berry compote, and Baltaire’s signature Lobster Mac ‘N’ Cheese because yum…
Guests will also get to indulge in an extravagant iced shellfish station featuring oysters, shrimp, scallop ceviche, and king crab, as well as a carving station with USDA Prime Rib, glazed Nueske spiral ham, and leg of lamb.
If brunch isn’t brunch without a bloody, check out the roaming Bloody Mary carts. A full brunch cocktail menu is available — including the Lavender Gin Fizz and Mezcal Sour.
And then there’s dessert — housemade cookies, an assortment of pies and tarts, including Key Lime, Lemon Meringue, Strawberry Rhubarb, Apple Crumble, and Salted Caramel Tarts.
Don’t forget reservations — you can make them here.
If you really owe Mom, book a room at Mr. C. Beverly Hills. The Mom’s Overnight Package, available now through Mother’s Day, May 14, starts at $445/night. Wow the woman who did your laundry and packed your lunch with rose petals on the bed upon arrival and a $100 spa credit toward Mr. C Spa & Beauty’s freshly curated Spring Bouquet for Mom Package or à la carte treatments (listed below).
The Spring Bouquet for Mom Full Package with Pedicure, Massage, & Body Scrub is $275 per person and includes:

If Mom should get hungry, The Restaurant at Mr. C is offering a special brunch on the yacht-inspired pool deck from 11 am to 3 pm. You don’t have to travel to Venice for classic Cipriani dishes like Beef Carpaccio (invented by none other than Giuseppe Cipriani at Harry’s Bar in Venice during the 1940s) or Baked White Taglioni, as well as a raw bar. Relax over bottomless Bellinis while the bambini paint potting vases for Mom at the Little C arts and crafts station.

Happy Mother’s Day!
