Brooklyn Museum Mother's Day Brunch and Tour

Edify brains and bellies at this extensive brunch and tour. The spacious, glass-ceilinged Rubin Pavilion is the site of an 11:00 a.m. brunch featuring local ingredients and tasty libations.

A guided tour commences at 12:30 p.m., offering your choice of several exhibits, such as "Motherhood Through The Ages," "Mummy Dearest" and "Power and Beauty in Ancient Egypt." Each tour illuminates aspects of the global experience of motherhood using world art contained in the museum's peerless collection.

Mother's Day Brunch at Meadowsweet

Opened in 2014 by a wife-husband couple, Meadowsweet stands in the shadow of the Williamsburg Bridge, treating locals and tourists to contemporary American with a decided Mediterranean twist.

Having recently snagged a Michelin star, this local establishment is gaining as much popularity for its distinct, top-quality ingredients and mindful preparations as for its global cocktail, wine and beer selection spanning Austrian lagers to Japanese Ale. Did we mention the food is death/life on a plate?

The special Mother's Day prix fixe brunch menu has the whiff of haute cuisine and down-home goodness, with offerings like poached eggs over duck confit hash, buttermilk waffles, and pappardelle with winter truffle. Starters at the table include house-made olive oil rolls and whipped butter. Enough said.

Meadowsweet offers its seasonal a la carte menu for Mother's Day dinner, just in case mom is craving Scottish salmon with bomba rice or prime New York strip.

Hornblower Mother's Day Brunch Cruise

Why settle for Brooklyn when you can have all of New York? Hornblower Cruises and Events offers a two-hour champagne Mother's Day brunch cruise that features a lavish brunch buffet, dessert, and coffee and tea, not to mention totally gorgeous views of the Big Apple's legendary skyline.

The cruise passes Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, Governor's Island and the Brooklyn Bridge. Ever seen it from below? Now's as good a time as any. A jazz band and live deejay keep the oldies but goodies flowing, in case you and the family want to dance off brunch. The cruise sails rain or shine and departs from Pier 40.
