Mon Ami Gabi will be opening specially for brunch, only on Mother's Day. Starting at 10:30, they will be serving a traditional french-inspired brunch menu, including Quiche Lorraine ($9.95), Eggs Florentine ($12.95) and tempting Vanilla French Toast ($10.95). If you love Mon Ami Gabi's regular menu, it'll be available as well during brunch. 2300 N. Lincoln Park West.
Wanna try something less traditional? How about Mother's Day brunch at Chicago Q? Not only will they be serving up some pretty great barbeque specials, mom's will take home a package of home-made peanut brittle as a parting gift. Bloody Mary Bar, Mimosa flights, Fried Chicken and Waffles, Kobe Beef Brisket Hash and Mascarpone Stuffed French Toast; we're convinced. Brunch starts at 11. 1160 N. Dearborn St.
Our favorite brunch option of the bunch? Sepia. The $39 prix fixe meal includes starters, served family style, your choice of entree and a whole selection of sweets. Options include smoked trout salad with butter lettuce, pickled red onion and an everything bagel, a grilled flat iron steak with duck fat fried potatoes, watercress and ramp green salsa verde and white chocolate-raspberry layer cake for dessert. Make reservations for this one, they're filling up fast. 123 N. Jefferson St.
In the mood for something less fancy? Try Sunday Supper at Nana. Every week, they serve up a special multi-course meal on Sunday afternoons, and this Mother's Day, they have dropped the price. $20 a person gets you a family-style meal of deviled eggs with maple-glazed bacon, Gunthorp Farms fried chicken with buttermilk biscuits and jalapeno slaw and a choice of desserts. Beat that deal on Mother's day. 3267 South Halsted Street.
Avoid the brunch crowds and take in a movie. At Showplace Icon, Mom's will pay the child's price for movies all day Sunday, if they are accompanied by a child 12 years old or younger. 150 W. Roosevelt Road.
