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

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:


fruit salad

Fruit Salad

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.


Mother's Day Toast

Toast with Brie, Salami, Arugula, Avocado & Poached Egg


1 slice bread of choice, toasted

1 oz brie cheese

handful arugula

3 slices crespone salami

1/2 avocado, sliced

1 egg

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.


Mother's Day Mimosa

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

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day only comes once a year. We should show them we love them and appreciate them every day, but on this day we should do a little more. In last week’s blog post about Mother’s Day we told you that the gift of doing things around the house should be the number one gift idea. For those of you who have kids, and work all the time, it’s hard to manage our time. If you only have a few hours to give to your Mother, take her somewhere for brunch and make sure you have absolutely gorgeous fresh flowers ready to hand to her. Below is a list of restaurants that make our Best of List.
