As usual, Faubourg is stepping up their game for Mom’s special day. They will of course be open for their regular in-person brunch but they will also be offering an at-home spread package to serve 4-6 people. No mom should be cooking on their own holiday so Faubourg is making it easy to indulge with a menu that includes Faubourg’s Mezze, grilled chicken and asparagus salad, yellowfin tuna Nicoise, steak au poivre, and an assortment of fresh pastries baked fresh in-house by Jayce Boudry. Make mom feel even more special by adding cocktails to your order including spicy pineapple margaritas and white cosmos. Make a reservation on their website and view their Mother’s Day menu here.

Fresco Da Franco {15 Church Street}
