Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 9, and if there’s anything we know for certain, it’s that mom definitely does not want to cook on her special day (or probably the entire weekend). Score major points by planning a special brunch, lunch, or dinner for mom at the Hyde Park restaurants listed below. If you learn of any other local options, please message us to add to this list. Happy Mother’s Day!
