The best gift you can give Mom this year is the option to dine in or get takeout. Let’s face it, moms need choices. For those that are making last-minute decisions, we put together this guide to sort things out. We included some of our favorite brunch spots that you can reserve via the DoorDash app and the spots that will make ordering in extra special.

BRUNCH WITH MOM 

OSTERIA MORINI


Neighborhood: Miami Beach
Address: 1750 Alton Rd
Cuisine: Italian
Book your table HERE

Sit by the canal for a three-course pre-fixe brunch menu at this Italian spot from New York City called Osteria Morini. Splurge on her gift because this $54 menu even includes a rosé toast. If mom lets you order for her, go for the polenta with mushroom ragu, pane rustico with challah French toast, and nocciola with hazelnut mousse for dessert.

LEKU


Neighborhood: Allapattah
Address: 1100 NW 23rd St
Cuisine: Basque
Book your table HERE

You may have been to their Magic Garden, but have you tried the chef’s tasting menu? Show mom, that she is worth it with 11 courses. It is unforgettable and probably more food than she will ever deem to cook in one day. There will be multiple protein options, and you will try nearly every appetizer on the menu. It is a Basque dream perched alongside the Rubell Museum.

LA MAR BY GASTON ACURIO


Neighborhood: Brickell
Address: 500 Brickell Key Dr
Cuisine: Peruvian
Book your table HERE

Special guest Martha Palacios from Gaston Acurio Restaurant Group will be in the house. And what better way to celebrate mom than with this epic chef. Pick a seat anytime between 1-7 PM and enjoy hot and cold stations, arroz con pollo made on the spot, and Peruvian comfort dishes. Their dessert station will be nothing short of spectacular. Make sure to leave room. Price is $145 per person and includes alcoholic beverages. Score!

NOVIKOV


Neighborhood: Downtown
Address: 300 S Biscayne Blvd
Cuisine: Asian
Book your table HERE

She’s not a regular mom, she’s a cool mom. Take her celebrity selfies at this Chinese and Japanese concept where she can indulge in dim sum and wok dishes. If she wants a “salad,” have her order the Novikov duck salad topped with crispy Peking duck. Maybe she wants to pick her own catch of the day. If that’s the case, daily selections are made available to her liking.

COTE


Neighborhood: Design District
Address: 3900 NE 2nd Ave
Cuisine: Korean
Book your table HERE

The Korean steakhouse in the Design District has a feast ready for mom. Indulge her with prime and wagyu beef, plump oysters, pickled seasonal vegetables, and salads. Their special menu is $125 per person and is available for lunch or dinner. If there was ever a time to show off amongst your siblings it is with this Steak Omakase™ experience.

ORDER IN WITH MOM 

If she would rather turn on Netflix and keep her jammies on, there are some goodies for her too. By the way, what is she watching?

OSAKA NIKKEI


Neighborhood: Brickell
Cuisine: Nikkei
Order for deliver or pickup HERE

The Brickell neighborhood has some tasty sushi takeout ready for mom. Bring home their Japanese techniques and Peruvian-inspired flavors in ceviche, tiraditos, makimono, nigiris, and izakaya. It’s the Nikkei experience mom never thought she’d get from the comfort of home.

SAPORE DI MARE


Neighborhood: Coconut Grove
Cuisine: Italian
Order for delivery or pickup HERE

You are already relaxed so why not enjoy the comforting flavors of Capri and the Amalfi Coast. This rustic Italian spot offers tossed pasta made fresh daily. Mom might like the gluten-free options, but either way, place an order for the spaghetti pasta with clams.

BOMBAY DARBAR


Neighborhood: Coconut Grove
Cuisine: Indian
Order for deliver or pickup HERE

Another Coconut Grove staple is making it possible to bring pure Indian comfort to your home. Mom would enjoy the paneer pakoras, chicken tikka masala, and samosa chaat. These memorable flavors are how you remind her that you are the favorite.

B BISTRO + BAKERY


Neighborhood: Brickell
Cuisine: American
Order for delivery or pickup HERE

More than just a pretty face, these scrumptious dishes are pretty on the palette too. Besides, they are available in Brickell or Coconut Grove. These travel well—croissant loaf French toast or truffle bun. Of course, you will want to bring home the sweets. Baked goods that go well with a Netflix marathon include Nutella croissant, pain au chocolat, and an assortment of macaroons.

PLANTA QUEEN


Neighborhood: Coconut Grove
Cuisine: Vegan
Order for deliver or pickup HERE

Don’t tell mom there’s another queen in town. This one makes it easy to order takeout or delivery via DoorDash. Start with 16 oz. cocktails and mosey on down to their wok and noodles options. She might not figure out their menu is plant-based cuisine. Other great options are the bao sliders, crispy rice, and avocado lime tartare.
