Where to Celebrate Mother's Day 2017 in Portland

by Alexander Frane on May 12, 2017 in Roundups
 
Mother's Day is almost here, a day when restaurants all across town are packed with families looking to demonstrate their love of their mother the old fashioned way: by buying her egg benedicts and mimosas. Restaurants can get crowded, especially the popular brunch spots, so here are eight locations that you can still get to for Mother’s Day 2017. Be sure to make a reservation first! Let us know where you’ll be taking mom at our Facebook or Twitter.
 
Portland’s modern farm-to-table steakhouse, Urban Farmer will be offering a gourmet brunch buffet to celebrate on Sunday, from 9 AM to 3 PM. Starters include citrus-smoked salmon, roasted beet salad, shellfish bisque, assorted cheeses and housemade charcuterie. Entrées consist of Belgian waffles, panini, an omelet station, children’s options, and more. To end the meal, mom can indulge in desserts such as blueberry violette crème brulee, cherry vanilla macarons, and raspberry chocolate mousse. Brunch will be available for $59 for adults and $22 for children 10 and under. Reservations are strongly recommended and can be made by calling. (525 SW Morrison St.; 503-222-4900)
 
Vitaly Paley’s newest restaurant, Headwaters, is celebrating Mother’s Day for the first time this year with two options—à la carte dining in the Headwaters dining room, and a grand buffet upstairs in the Heathman Hotel. Headwater’s brunch includes a dungeness crab omelet, croque madame, french toast Stuffed with meyer lemon ricotta, and Khachapuri, a Georgian cheese flatbread with a soft egg. A selection of Headwaters favorites will be highlighted at the buffet, including a variety of items from the sea bar, a selection of artisan cheeses, a charcuterie plate, carving stations, an omelet station, and a savory buffet including eggs benedict, french toast, and fresh steelhead salmon, as well as a dessert bar filled with treats. Seatings for buffet brunch are available from 10:30 AM to 2:45 PM for $58 per adult and $38 for children 12 and under. Brunch buffet seatings are only available by calling the restaurant. Dining room reservations can be made online or by calling the restaurant at 503-790-7752. (1001 SW Broadway 503-790-7752)
 
Urdaneta will be offering its first-ever prix-fixe tapas-style brunch not to be missed. Chef Javier Canteras is taking reservations for two hour seatings between 10 AM and 1 PM, which includes your choice of one Pintxo, Primero, Segundo and Postre dish for $45 per person. Fresh mimosas, kalimotxos, sangria, and Bloody Marias will also be available. Reservations can be made here. The restaurant will be closed for dinner. (3033 NE Alberta St.; 503-288-1990)
 
Chef Sarah Schafer's casually elegant American cuisine can be shared with mom for brunch and dinner on Mother's Day. In addition to their signature Fried Chicken and Biscuits, the seasonal brunch menu will also include a delicious Strawberry Rhubarb Mom-osa. Irving Street Kitchen will also be donating 5% of Mother's Day brunch sales to No Kid Hungry to help end childhood hunger. Reservations can be made here. (701 NW 13th Ave.; 503-343-9440)
 
If you’re looking for a truly Portland Mother’s Day experience, why not try a local brewery? For Mother's Day weekend, the family-friendly Burnside Brewing Company will include a special house-made Lox (wild caught Alaskan sockeye) eggs benedict with heirloom tomato Panzanella salad in addition to the regular lunch and dinner menu. Burnside's special strawberry rhubarb pandowdy with fresh mascarpone whipped cream will also be a sweet post meal, especially with one of their lovely microbrews. (701 E. Burnside St.; 503-946-8151)
 
At Punch Bowl Social , all moms will be treated to a complimentary mimosa upon arrival on Mother’s Day. Plus, Mom’s brunch is completely free if she bowls a strike on her first attempt. The brunch buffet will be available from 10 AM to 3 PM and  will feature a house-cured ham carving station, build-your-own omelet bar, biscuits and gravy, monkey bread French toast, shiitake and smoked gouda frittata, watermelon feta tomato salad, pastries, fruit and kale salads as well as a tempting dessert station. After the feast, serenade Mom in a private karaoke room or team up to play games like giant bonzini foosball, wall-size Scrabble, bocce, ping-pong, retro arcades and pinball games, corn hole or darts. The buffet is $25 for adults, $12 for kids age 6-12, and free for kids 5 and under. Call for reservations.  (340 SW Morrison St, 3rd Floor; 503-334-0360)
 
This Mothers’s Day at Q Restaurant and Bar, Chef Annie Cuggino will be serving brunch favorites including eggs benedict, veggie benedicts for herbivore mamas, lemon ricotta pancakes, chilaquiles, cinnamon & sugar churros, and much more. As a thank you for all the wonderful things mothers do, Q will be pouring a complimentary glass of bubbles for all moms attending Mother’s Day brunch. To make your reservation, visit the Q website or call the restaurant. (828 SW 2nd Ave..; 503-850-8915)
 
Bring Mom into La Moule to try its new brunch menu this Mother’s Day. Celebrate with oysters, liege waffles, crab & avocado toast, and fresh-baked pastries. Bottles of sparkling and rose wines will be featured with special pricing, and Mom can enjoy a glass of bubbles (or mimosa) on the house. La Moule always accepts walk ins, and its brunch program isn’t as well known as others yet. Even still, reservations are always a good bet. They can be made phone or at info@lamoulepdx.com (2500 SE Clinton St.; 971-339-2822)
