Toronto restaurants and bars offering Mother’s Day brunch, lunch and dinner for takeout and delivery
This Mother’s Day, after more than a year of fine-tuning their pick-up and delivery services, Toronto’s restaurants have put together a number of set menus for brunches, lunches and dinners that will make your mom—or, frankly, anyone who’s keen for a delicious, spring meal—feel appreciated. Here, a whole bunch of local restaurants offering magnificent Mom’s Day menus.
The downtown mainstay is offering an eight-course menu that includes chili chicken, Hakka tofu stew, tandoori shrimp fried rice, and dim-sum staples like har gow and siu mai. It’s all accompanied by a floral arrangement, six Asian-inspired macarons, cocktails and three jarred sauces to use later. Proceeds from the meal will go towards the Chinese Collective Arts Association to fund free events and performances throughout the city. 126 Elizabeth St., 416-977-0933, yuehtungrestaurant.com
Phancy’s is going the afternoon-tea route for Mother’s Day, serving up a mid-morning menu of macarons from Mrs. Cold, pinwheels from Geste Croissanterie, finger sandwiches (choices include egg or tuna salad, cucumber and radish, smoked salmon, and spinach and feta), tea with sugar and maple cubes, and—for those who want something a bit stronger than loose leaf—canned rosé from Nova Scotia’s Benjamin Bridge.

Gare De L’Est
Not only is Gare De L’Est offering up smoked salmon, quiche and baby gem romaine salad along with a bottle of prosecco as part of their Mother’s Day menu—they’re also adding a face and eye mask from Victoria Radford to the package, to give mom a little extra pampering. A kids’ add-on of rigatoni and meatballs is also available. 1190 Dundas St. E., 416-792-1626, gdlbrasserie.com
