8 Ways To Celebrate Mother¬ís Day In Fort Lauderdale
Mother’s Day is sneaking up on us, so be sure to make plans ahead of time to celebrate mom on May 13. Whether it’s a fancy brunch buffet or a relaxing spa package, let Mom know how much she means to you. After all, she does have the toughest (and most rewarding) job in the world.
Here are 10 ways to celebrate Mother’s Day in the Fort Lauderdale area:
Spa Day At Pelican Grand Beach Resort
We could all use a spa day. But moms, especially, deserve an hour or two to relax in peace and quiet. The Pelican Grand Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale is offering a “You Are Beautiful” spa package this Mother’s Day. It includes a $250 PURE Spa credit so that Mom can choose her own treatment (facial, massage, manicure, etc.), plus two signature cocktails (so you know she’ll be relaxed). As an added gift, the Pelican Grand will take care of any resort fees.

Lobster Bar Fort Lauderdale
Take mom to the Lobster Bar in Fort Lauderdale this Mother’s Day. On top of the restaurant’s exquisite menu, it’s offering Channé Rosé for $9 a glass and $34 a bottle. You’ll find some of the best seafood in South Florida on Lobster Bar’s menu thanks to world-renowned chef Jeff Pfeiffer. The nautical theme throughout the restaurant will make you feel like you’re dining on a yacht rather than in a restaurant, which could be a pretty cool treat for mom.

Buffet Brunch At NYY Steak
Seminole Casino Coconut Creek is offering special menus throughout four of its restaurants this Mother’s Day. We recommend fine dining restaurant, NYY Steak. It is offering a special brunch from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for $85 per person. Make a reservation and feast on a buffet-style menu featuring a fresh seafood station, a soup and salad station, an omelet station and a dessert station. The chef will also be hosting a carving station so that Mom can enjoy a juicy steak. The best part? It will have a mimosa and bloody mary bar, plus live entertainment.

Exclusive Menu At Sorrisi
If your mom is in the mood for something Italian, take her to Sorrisi. It’s whipping up something special for Mother’s Day from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. The exclusive menu includes a large chopped salad, shrimp and lobster scampi, veal involtini Florentine, pistachio-crusted lamb chops and, for dessert, Frutti de Bosco tart. The hardest decision she’ll be making is whether or not to order two desserts.
