Nothing says “Happy Mother’s Day” quite like brunch. It’s certainly become the most popular way to celebrate the day. While the coronavirus pandemic has resulted in a dine-in shutdown throughout the District, it doesn’t mean that Mother’s Day Brunch is canceled. Instead we get to think up new and creative ways to enjoy this celebratory tradition at home. Be it a leisurely brunch in bed, a bubble bath with mimosas, a backyard brunch picnic, a virtual brunch party, or a wholesome family brunch around the dining table, there are a number of DC-area restaurants offering amazing brunch specials to spoil yourself or the mom in your life this weekend.
Here are 5 pickup or delivery options for a last minute Mother’s Day Brunch at home.
A seat in La Vie’s posh dining space overlooking The Wharf would certainly be a fabulous way to celebrate Mother’s Day, but equally impressive is its Mother’s Day menu. The Mediterranean-inspired restaurant is offering a three-course brunch for $35 per person with some pretty delicious selections. Choose from items like lamb meatballs, lemon ricotta pancake, short rib hash, and tiramisu French toast. You’ll definitely want to order the lemon ricotta pancake as it’s one of the best pancake dishes in the area.
Order ahead here for either pickup or delivery on Sunday between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
The Four Seasons Hotel, home to the most exquisite brunch in the DMV area, is serving up a four-course Mother’s Day brunch. The $65 per person brunch menu consists of smoked salmon mousse tartelette, pear and brie arugula salad, roasted half Cornish hen with potato and carrot tournées, and a chocolate tartelette for dessert.
Order ahead here for pick up on Sunday between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Be sure to add some sparkling wine to make it a bubbly affair!
With Jaleo’s Special Mother’s Day Menu, you can treat Mom to one of Chef José Andrés’ delicious paellas. The menu includes three paella options: a vegetable paella, a chicken and mushroom paella, and a chicken, sausage and lobster paella. Add a dozen roses ($38) to your order to make it an extra special affair… because nothing says “I Love You” like good food and flowers!
Go here for information on how to pre-order. The menu is available both Saturday and Sunday for pickup and delivery from their DC, Bethesda, and Crystal City locations.

For Mother’s Day they have a family style brunch menu which includes dishes like salmon croissant, avocado toast, steak and eggs, house-made yogurt with berries, and lemon-glazed pound cake for $50 per person. They also have an impressive selection of to-go cocktails.
