The special Mother’s Day menu at this Dobbs Ferry restaurant—which has great views of the river—includes three courses and starts at 11am. The prix fixe menu runs $68 for adults and $30 for kids. Reservations are a must.
Harvest on Hudson offers a trio of ways to celebrate mom and some pretty stunning cocktails.
Harvest on Hudson – Hastings on Hudson
With a pretty outdoor garden, Harvest on Hudson is a great pick for Mother’s Day brunch, which runs from 11am-3pm. You’ll get a choice of appetizer (like shrimp cocktail, avocado bruschetta), main (like chicken and waffles, braised short ribs), and a trio of desserts. It’s $72 for adults, $30 for kids, and you have to make reservations. It's also offering a dinner option, as well as a “brunch box” if you prefer to take it out.
Sam’s of Gedney Way – White Plains
This one is a take-home option, but we wanted to include it in case you want a no-cook holiday without having to go out. Options vary but include one entrée, three sides, biscuits and dessert, ranging from $25-$40 per person. Additional choices, like a tapas board, are also available. Orders have to be placed by Thursday, May 6, and must be picked up on Mother’s Day.
L’inizio – Ardsley
Mother’s Day brunch runs from 11am-4pm, with options including apps like Italian donuts, mains like pancakes, French toast, eggs, and pasta, and a dedicated kids’ menu. Prices are a la carte, and you can get a main and then opt for “bottomless” mimosas, bloody marys, or sangria for $25. Reservations can be made online.
