Mother’s Day Weekend Food Specials


Mother’s Day is coming up on Sunday, and here at Fork in the Road, we’ve rounded up some restaurant deals and street fairs across the city to ease the planning process.

Free stuff

1) Toloache 50
A complimentary mimosa is offered for all mothers at brunch. A $30 prix fixe brunch is offered, including unlimited mimosas, a choice of main course such as chilaquiles, and pan dulce de leche.

2) Yerba Buena Perry and Yerba Buena Avenue A
Mothers who come after 5 p.m. receive a $20 gift card. Some menu items: ensalada de langosta ($18) with lobster, avocado, passion fruit aji Amarillo vinaigrette, and tacos de cangrejo ($15) with crispy soft-shelled crab.

3) Kutsher’s Tribeca
From Zach Kutsher himself: “At dinner service, all moms will receive a complimentary glass of prosecco and some onion rolls to stuff in their purse for later. The side of guilt is free.”
