Nothing like waiting till the last minute!!! I'm looking for a good place for brunch for Mother's Day. I'm more interested in your typical, but fancy brunch fare. Thanks for your help!

    Our nonprofit is hosting an Irish Sunday Brunch on Mother's Day with Irish Music legend, James Keane with a very nice brunch with a touch of Irish fare. It's a lovely new venue called Waterford House. Check it out at www.celticcenter.org

      Fonda San Miguel serves an extremely impressive and wonderful brunch. It is amazing. Definitely go there!

        I'm sorry, I have to disagree with this. FSM's brunch is $40/person ($20/child, and that's including 6 year olds) for food that all tastes the same. There has to be a better brunch in town.

        A follow-up---I thought Mother's Day at Fonda San Miguel was great. I did a quick browse of the board and I see it's been mentioned a lot so I don't need to go into detail. But I will say (for next year's moms!) they have walk-in seating around 12:30-12:45 for people who don't make reservations. You sit either in the bar room or on the exterior of the courtyard sort of place near the entrance.
        It was a very pretty restaurant. I don't eat meat so I wish it cost only $30 instead of $42--but the meat looked sumptuous, quite the main event. However, I had about 15 cold appetizer/salads and 7-8 mexican dishes to choose from, plus a table full of dessert.
        Chocolate mousse and these berry custard tarts were the best? I thinks so :)

        Definitely a nice treat!
