STL - Holiday Brunch recs

As this is the first year our "older" generation won't be with us, the family is looking to actually ENJOY a holiday and bypass the grind of doing dishes.

Looking for any ideas for both Easter and Mother's Day brunches. I understand both days will be crazy busy no matter where we go, but hoping for at least something decent. Must be handicapped friendly as well since we have a wheelchair in the bunch.

We went to Bevo's for Mother's Day a few years ago and it was terrible - crowds like I've never seen and food was just not up to snuff.

Other suggestions were Pere Marquette and tjhe Capri at the Renaissance Grand, which Joe P. reviewed on his blog recently.

Thanks for any ideas.

  1. Cafe Madeline has a lovely brunch. I've also been to Duff's, The Danielle (hotel in Clayton) and the Chase. All were very nice, comfortable atmosphere and good food.

      I don't think the Daniele is serving anymore.

    2. The Coronado has fantastic Easter and Mother's Day brunch. Not inexpensive, but it is wonderful.

        I'll second Nadoz at the Coronado. Not been there for a special day brunch, but the regular Sunday brunch is great!

      2. Opps! Forgot about Nadoz. Had a very very lovely Mother's Day brunch there a few years back.!!!

          Awesome! Thanks all - not familiar with any of these (but Duff's) so did not consider - sounds like we'll have a great meal after all

            Five (in the Grove neighborhood--a gem of a restaurant) is also doing an Easter brunch and, since my waitress was passing out a card advertising the brunch at dinner service on Saturday, they must still have space available.
