Mother’s Day 2013 – Concierge Picks for Best Dining!
But you knew that already. And you’re pulling out all the stops to show Mom a good time. One way you can let her know she’s the best – and worth the best – is to take her out for a wonderful brunch or dinner at a sumptuous Sedona eatery.
Plenty of places with distinctive menus will be mom-ready. She can enjoy Belgian waffles, prime rib, champagne or a variety of unique menu items on her special day. With a little planning and a reservation, your celebration of mom-ness will be a big hit.
Most area restaurants will be pleased to offer your mother a flower when she makes her entrance. She might hear live music, see an amazing ice sculpture or have a tasty dessert she doesn’t normally allow herself. Whatever she wants. It’s her day.
The Barking Frog, just over a half mile from the hotel, will be serving Mother’s Day brunch, a three course affair with several choices for each course, including dessert, all for $19.95. A mile from the hotel, Dahl and Diluca, home of classic Italian fare served in an Old World atmosphere, is planning special menu items for dinner, and flowers of course.
At Golden Goose, dinner choices, beginning at 3:00 pm, will include specials on salmon with Cajun shrimp sauce, lamb shank, chicken cordon bleu, sea bass and a seafood trio of lobster tail, scallops and shrimp. The Goose is less than a mile from Sedona Real.
Che Ah Chi, situated in a box canyon at the Enchantment Resort, is preparing “Sunday brunch with a twist,” according to their kitchen staff. Think ice sculpture, champagne, and surprises; $69 for adults, $32.50 for children. Che Ah Chi is in the Dry Creek Basin, five miles from the hotel.
Shugrue’s Hillside Grill, boasting magnificent red rock views, will supplement their traditional surf and turf lunch and dinner menus with three specials at each meal, plus flowers. If you visit Mesa Grill, expect some “festive” additions to the regular lunch and dinner offerings. The views there take in almost every major rock formation in the surrounding landscape.
L’Auberge de Sedona will serve Mother’s Day brunch indoors, as well as outdoors on the patio, where some tables are within sight and sound of the creek. They will offer seasonal treats with your mother in mind, and champagne as usual. $85 for adults, $30 for children.
Reservations anywhere are a good idea. Once you’ve made Mother’s Day plans, reset the dial for Father’s Day on June 16th. From steak to swordfish, Sedona restaurants will do dad proud.
For both Mom and Dad, be sure to keep the party going after brunch or dinner. Several local tour companies will offer holiday discounts. Check with Red Rock Jeep for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day specials. Bon appetit.
