A word of advice for Mother's Day - which, by the way, is quickly approaching - DO NOT let your Mom or the Mother of your children cook on this day! There are many fantastic options around Phoenix for fabulous dining with Mom on Mother's Day - and here are my favorites.
Sassi - This beautiful North Scottsdale Italian restaurant will be hosting a Mother's Day Brunch from 10am-1pm with so many different delicious options it will make your head spin and your stomach rumble! In addition to fabulous food, there will be live entertainment on the patio and a Bloody Mary bar - hey, even Mom needs a cocktail now and then! Adults are $50 and children 12 and under are $12. You can reserve online (definitely recommend reservations) or you can call to reserve 480-502-9095. Sassi is located at 10455 E. Pinnacle Peak Parkway in Scottsdale.
Calistro California Bistro - This Scottsdale restaurant, with two Scottsdale locations, is going a step further this Mother's Day - if you take Mom here, she'll gets a complimentary meal! Every entree on the menu is Mom's choice if you dine here on Mother's Day - but there is a 'one mom per table' limit and you do need to have reservations. You can call either location (18221 N. Pima Rd in DC Crossing is 480-502-0325, and 6107 N. Scottsdale Rd is 480-656-5244.
