Mother’s Day Downtown: Where to Treat Mom in Lower Manhattan
Moms deserve our love and appreciation every day, but Mother’s Day is the Hallmark-mandated moment to pull out all the stops, and we don’t just mean returning their calls on time. This year, celebrate Mom in the best way possible — with an elegant Sunday brunch in Lower Manhattan. And considering all the delectable options downtown, a tasty meal out here is a gift for her and you.
Here’s a handful of top-notch places to choose from.
