Tasty Guide to Long Island Mother’s Day Brunch 2017

Yes, moms should be appreciated every day of the year, but Mother’s Day is the chance to show her a little more than normal. Besides jewelry and a watch, spend some quality time with the woman who did your laundry and taught you how to balance a checkbook by treating her to a meal she’ll never forget. Our Long Island Mother’s Day Brunch 2017 guide will help you find the perfect spot.

High wooden ceilings and trees in the dining room give this restaurant a sophisticated atmosphere. The chef is creating special dishes using the restaurant’s rustic cooking techniques, like brick-oven roasting. The menu will feature brick oven brioche French toast, smoked salmon flatbreads and vegetable frittatas. Go

Grey Horse Tavern, Bayport

For a more laid-back mom, Grey Horse Tavern offers a 19th century countryside feel. All of its produce comes from local farms, making its dishes the freshest of the fresh. The buffet will include a cheese board, vegetables, raw bar and house cured gravlax. There will also be hot buffet options such as the fluffy scrambled farm eggs or the cavatelli with spring peas, spinach and tomatoes. Go

Thyme Restaurant, Roslyn

Take in views of Roslyn Pond in a Manhattan-chic setting at Thyme Restaurant. Diners can toast to mom (and spring!) with seasonal cocktails like Thyme Sangria or a Blood Orange Margarita and then feast on the delicious spinach, ricotta and tomato quiche or the crispy jumbo-lump crab cake burger. Go

Copperhill, Williston Park

This renovated farmhouse with a porch and taproom will make mom feel like she’s escaped to a countryside in Nassau. But the noted friendly service will make her feel right at home. Select from pancakes, shrimp tacos or the classic bacon, egg and cheese. Go
