Menus to WOW Mama
By Kate Parham
What better way to show Mom your love than with a special meal? Here are some Buckhead eateries celebrating matriarchs in style:
Look for the Mother’s Day blackboard brunch specials at Cook Hall, where you’ll also find mom-approved mocktail kits fit for the occasion—think soda, house-made shrubs and tasty mixers.
3377 Peachtree Road N.E. Atlanta 30326
Sushi lovers will find a complimentary Mother’s Day treat at Genki Noodles and Sushi: all moms receive a gratis “I ‘Heart’ Sushi” roll (shrimp tempura and cream cheese topped with tuna, avocado, wasabi cream and garlic chili sauce) with an entrée purchase, rightfully served in a heart shape.

Head to Ocean Prime for a special brunch menu (starting at 11 a.m.) from Chef Mitch Brumels— don’t miss the short
rib hash and king crab Benedict.

Though normally closed on Sunday, Paul’s will open its doors for a special Mother’s Day brunch buffet (from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.), where you’ll find a wide array of occasion-worthy options, like a carving station, sushi counter and dessert buffet.
10 King’s Circle,
Garnish & Gather, Atlanta’s artisanal recipe kit service (think fresh ingredients from local farms, gourmet recipes and chic packaging), is offering a special Mother’s Day brunch kit created by Chef Jaye Moore. Eggs Florentine with orange Mornay sauce anchors the meal, while a mixed green salad tossed in a nutty shallot dressing, cheese-infused biscuits and a strawberry-rhubarb tart perfectly complement the delicious strawberry blini. Did we mention all this is just $100 for four people? There are three Buckhead pickup locations: Buckhead Patagonia, Brookhaven’s Cook’s Warehouse and Buckhead’s Sherlock’s Wine Merchant.
