Mom Always Knows Best!

Still unsure of where to take mom for her big day? Here are some more suggestions of our favorite restaurants and places to celebrate your mama!

Send mom to Sunday Supper at JCT. Kitchen & Bar for a savory Mother's Day celebration! Chef Ford Fry has whipped up a special menu priced at $36 per person, full of their famous Southern farmstead fare. Moms can start their meal with a selection of warm biscuits, house made jams, deviled eggs and Benton's country ham, followed by a local "farm stand" salad. Some of the menu's meat items include slow-cooked rabbit, pan-roasted halibut and cider braised short rib "pot roast," while scrumptious side items include Carolina golden rice, fried artichokes and squash casserole. For a sweet treat, moms can take their pick of the two dessert options: coconut rum cake or local strawberries and cream. JCT. Kitchen & Bar is located at 1198 Howell Mill Road in Suite 18; 404-355-2252.

Uncle Julio's Casa Grande spices up mom's week, May 4 - May 10, with Plato de Madre (20.95)--mesquite grilled carne asada (beef fajita steak) smothered with sautéed seasoned vegetables, melted Monterrey Jack cheese and three mesquite grilled shrimp diablo (butterflied jumbo shrimp) plus guacamole, pico de gallo, Mexican rice and frijoles a la charra. Knowing that moms crave chocolate, Uncle Julio's will have plenty of chocolate empanadas and chocolate flan on Mother's Day. 1860 Peachtree Road; 404-350-6767.

Woodfire Grill thrills the mom who loves to dine on the season's freshest and locally grown foods whenever she can. In addition to enjoying a memorable meal selected from the regular menu or the special prix fixe Mother's Day menu, mom will take home a complimentary box of homemade truffles. We can't say whether or not she'll share them! Serving Mother's Day dinner from 5 to 9 p.m. 1782 Cheshire Bridge Road; 404-347-9055.
