Mothers Day in Brooklyn?

Mother in law is a traditional person but an adventurous eater. Would be just as comfortable with formal, old school white linen place as in a funky, trendy and hip . Want to book this now.

Bonus points for Cobble/ Carroll/ Red Hook/ Slope/ Ft Greene.

    Convivium Osteria--very nice food in a unique atmosphere. Ask to be seated downstairs--either in the wine cellar or the enclosed patio.

      Sounds like you don't have many constraints (which is a good thing). What sort of food does she (or YOU) like or not like? Consider Palo Santo, particularly if you can sit outside in the back garden - I've never been disappointed there. The roof at Alma has a great view and a meal to match. (I have an affinity for the outside.) On the more traditional end, Queen is a possibility. Anyplace that's popular here will probably fit what you've written above.

      I don't know if any of the above places are doing anything special for mother's day.

        applewood, maybe? i really like their converted-to-a-restaurant aesthetic and have found the food to be really tasty (never been for brunch but the menu sure looks good)
