Kick off Mother’s Day the right way with NYC’s best of brunch. There’s no better way to honor mom than with bubbles and benedict, now is there?
1 The Palm Court at The Plaza
On the later end of the brunch scale, moms and kids alike are in for a treat at Geoffrey Zakarian’s new and improved Palm Court at The Plaza. Tiers upon tiers of finger sandwiches and sweets (and yes, an oh-so-Eloise cotton candy version for the young at heart) will be accompanied by the finest in teas and bubbly in a weekend tea honoring Mother’s Day on both Saturday and Sunday. As if that’s not convincing enough, The Plaza sweetens the deal with a gift certificate from Caudalie Spa valid for one mani on the house for mother dearest. Attaché Insider: gluten free? The Palm Court’s dedicated g-free tea menu is the perfect option for dietary restrictions.

Bottomless brunch, anyone? Bacchanal’s barrel brunch ensures no glass left behind with unlimited mimosas, bloody marys, draft beers, barrel wines and negroni on tap, in addition to an unbeatable spread of Chef Ryan Schmidtberger’s house specialties. From truffled steak tartare and freshly baked cinnamon rolls to a stone ground shrimp & grits with bacon and onion jam, there’s something for every palate -- the industrial-chic décor doesn’t hurt either. The Bowery hotspot’s casual/cool vibe is the perfect place to celebrate mom over short ribs eggs Benedict. Attaché Insider: request lounge seating for the city’s coziest brunch experience.

4 TriBeCa Grand's Mother's Day Jazz Brunch
Ah, freedom of choice. Not only does Grand Brunch feature live jazz and film screenings all day long, but the spread itself is something else. We're talking made-to-order Belgian waffles and omelettes, slab bacon, Doughnut Plant donuts and other fine baked goods, Russ & Daughters lox, baked ham with red chile marinade, a splendid salad selection, and more. Smartly clad staff ensure that no glass goes empty with endless mimosas, bellini, and bloodys for all. Attaché Insider: make a weekend out of it and snag a room at the hotel -- TriBeCa Grand’s mod-meets-glam rooms and killer views make for the perfect staycation.
2 Avenue of the Americas at Church Street
With a house-made pastry roster second to none and the sheer pleasure of Nick Anderer's pasta before sunset, Maialino's brunch is an absolute must. Stunning park views, stellar service, and killer eats (obviously) make for the ultimate weekend dining experience -- we'd expect nothing less from a Danny Meyer hotspot. Mom will love the tonnarelli al cacio e pepe bacon toffee glazed brioche bun for good measure.
