Deliver a Memorable Mother’s Day Celebration
Make this Mother’s Day memorable in all the right ways. Order in a special meal from some of NoMad’s finest restaurants and establishments. All you have to do is set the table.
If you can’t be with Mom in person, send her a wonderful brunch or dinner or she doesn’t have to cook. You can even set up a Zoom session and have dinners sent to her household and yours so you can enjoy the meal together. But if you can . . .
Prepping for the Meal
If you want to give Mom a full-service dining experience, advise her in advance what time her “reservation” is and let her know she’ll have the best seat in the house. Set the table ahead of time and have candles ready to light before the meal starts. Also, have the coffee maker or teapot ready to go so an after-meal coffee can be quickly prepared and served.
If Mom enjoys a cocktail, have drinks before the spread arrives. Offer her favorite drink or the “bartender’s special Mother’s Day’s libation” (anything with fizz feels extra-festive). When the food arrives, she can continue to enjoy happy hour while you plate the order.
If you want to go the extra mile, print a ‘menu’ of the selections you’ll be eating. Even burgers and fries will feel more fun and thoughtful when they’re on a printed menu.
Ordering the Meal
BLACKBARN: Get ready for delicious handcrafted artisanal dishes conceived by Chef John Doherty. Appetizers like Truffle Ricotta Gnocchi or Pizza Margherita start the meal off right.

Eataly Flatiron: If you’re feeling more ambitious, Eataly Flatiron’s market has fresh fish, meats, vegetables, pastas, and breads so you can prepare your own Mother’s Day spread.

Remember, Mom isn’t your mother just one day a year, so feel free to order in and treat her beyond May 10. Even if you can’t be there in person to share the meal, knowing it came from you will reinforce that undeniable mother-child connection.
