Treat mother dearest to a gourmet brunch or dinner at a favorite restaurant or bring the celebration home with takeout specials.

Mother’s Day is right around the corner in the Hudson Valley. How are you commemorating the occasion? Will you surprise her with a shipment of her favorite local wine? Or maybe send her a card via snail mail? (Don’t forget the gift: Have you picked up the perfect present from a local maker?)

For the mom who appreciates the rich restaurant scene in the Hudson Valley, there’s no better gift than a delectable meal out (or a takeout meal in) from one of her favorite eateries. However you choose to dine, these are the eateries to look out for.

Apropos Restaurant & Bar

12-7 p.m., $70/person

Apropos hits Mother’s Day out of the park with a spread that ranges from refreshing salads and ricotta toast with hazelnuts to roasted sea bass with local heirloom carrots. For dessert, the dreamy moscato panna cotta is the only way to go. Make your reservation as soon as possible, for this local hotspot books up fast.

Brunch, $42.95

This year, Blu Pointe hosts an extra-special Mother’s Day meal with a view. To top things off, the restaurant is offering a buffet-style brunch, during which guests can pick from a variety of offerings.

The Atlantic salmon is a favorite, and comes with citrus beurre blanc, herb farro, and a side of baby spinach.

Caffe Regatta

All day, a la carte

The Pelham eatery offers standard brunch fare with decidedly oceanic twists. (Eggs Benedict with Maine lobster, anyone?)

City Winery


Who could say no to the decadent offerings on the brunch and dinner menus? Factor in City Winery’s award-winning selection of vino, and you’re looking at an unbeatable Mother’s Day dining experience. Start your day off with the stuffed brioche French toast, or tie a bow on your evening with the date walnut mint pesto.

Nicole’s Restaurant

Brunch, $40/person

Look to Nicole’s for dreamy Mother’s Day fare this year. The brunch consists of three courses, with bites ranging from biscuits and gravy to prime rib and eggs to mini cannoli and tiramisu. Every mom should indulge in at least one of the masterfully crafted cocktails. Paloma mimosas, berry sangria, and espresso martinis will get the party started this year.
