This Mother’s Day, mom deserves an extra-special celebration. She wears lots of hats — parent, employee, caregiver, teacher — but for the past few weeks, she’s been wearing them at the same time, all day, every day. While we may not be able to take our loved ones to brunch or dinner, we can still celebrate the women in our lives — mother or grandmother, mentor or friend. We’ve rounded up some tasty offerings for you to show how much you appreciate her. Most restaurants have a full selection of adult beverages, and be sure to check out their ongoing to-go/delivery menus. Get online, order a meal and remember to tip generously.
Belle Meade’s go-to dining spot has a tantalizing brunch package for four, but if your Mother’s Day menu simply needs a boost, consider ordering items — mixed nuts, sides salads and bread pudding — to complete your at-home menu. Orders accepted Thursday until 8 p.m. for pickup Saturday from 3-8 p.m. Visit 360bistro.com to order.

The coffee shop recently reopened with takeout at both locations and has some special options for treating mom.
