Second Annual Best Restaurants for Mother’s Day in the Southwest Suburbs 2017
Last year we were a part of choosing the Best Restaurants for Mother’s Day in the Southwest Suburbs, and the response was a great. Of course, we had to do it again. Mother’s Day is very special to us, because we understand the importance of celebrating the mothers in our life. No matter what we buy or make our mothers for Mother’s Day, just remember it’s the thought that counts.
We love celebrating local businesses. Seeing these local restaurants doing well and being enjoyed by people in our community makes us want to go out of our way to give them the extra recognition that they deserve. Remember to always celebrate the businesses in your community, because they are the heart of the town you live in.
Sunday, May 14th is Mother’s Day. If you haven’t made reservations, here is a list of the Best Restaurants in the Southwest Suburbs.

Brunch at Home
At times, we are unable to take out our mothers or our wives (kid’s mother). Put your chef hat on and go to work. Let’s create delicious brunch for that special lady.
First begin by covering the table with a white table linen, don’t panic, more than likely it’s in the linen closet. Take out your finest china and silverware. Get a vase and add fresh flowers (your local grocery store has a great selection). Choose a variety of flowers instead of roses for your table. Next, begin making brunch.
Your Brunch should include: a fruit salad, toast with a few special items, and a mimosa.
Here are the recipes:
In a small bowl, place strawberries, berries, grapes, kiwis, and raspberries. Drizzly a little bit of honey and place it in the fridge for 15 minutes.
Toast with Brie, Salami, Arugula, Avocado & Poached Egg
1 slice bread of choice, toasted
1 oz brie cheese
3 slices crespone salami
1/2 avocado, sliced
Salt and pepper
Heat water in saucepan with 1 tsp salt & 2 tsp white vinegar. Bring to a simmer. Crack egg into a small bowl. Using a long wooden spoon, stir the water in one direction to create a whirlpool. Carefully drop the egg into the center of the whirlpool and let cook for 5 mins.
Toast bread and top with slightly warmed brie, arugula, salami, avocado, poached egg & salt and pepper to taste.
Strawberry Pineapple Mimosa
In a flute, fill the glass with ¾ of Champagne (must be served chill)
A splash of orange juice
A splash of pineapple juice
Add two slices of strawberries
I hope you have a successful Mother’s Day.
Happy Mother’s Day 2017
