You could buy your mom a card and some flowers. Or you could treat your mom to a memorable meal at one of many Pittsburgh restaurants. The Pittsburgh City Paper compiled a list of places where you can take the person you call "mom."

The PA Market
108 19th St., Strip District. thepamarket.com
This Strip District eatery will be open for Mother’s Day brunch, boasting a delicious Rose Sangria and Kentucky Lavender Mule with bourbon, lemon juice, honey lavender syrup, ginger beer, and lavender bitters. You can also gift mom one of the market's classes, like the Italian Wine Series, Tequila Cocktail Class, or the Tacos & Tequila tasting.

The Commoner
622 Wiliam Penn Place, Downtown. thecommonerpgh.com
Executive Chef Dave Racicot’s Spring brunch menu will impress any mom. Dig into French toast with seasonal jam, vanilla whipped cream, avocado toast, or a pork belly sandwich with caramelized pork belly, fried egg, pickled onion, and honey dijon. For a drink, try an Aperol spritz or a Bloody Larry.

Like with Easter, Tabbara Chocolates has a host of sweet delicacies for you to choose from. Some festive flavors for your Mother’s Day celebration include Elderflower and saffron ganache, raspberry-rose jelly with a white chocolate ganache, banana caramel with a crunchy layer of hazelnuts and peanuts, and a strawberry ganache with lemon and mint jelly, among other options.
