It’s almost Mother’s Day, and 2021 is starting to look a lot better than last year for celebrating your mom/mother figure.
Many restaurants and attractions are back open, and offering special deals or dinners/brunches to enjoy. Plus, a lot of people are getting vaccinated, making it safer to spend time together.
I’ve perused all the listings and press emails, and here are CitySurfing Orlando’s picks for celebrating moms on Mother’s Day, May 9, 2021. All prices do not include tax or gratuity (please don’t forget to tip!). Under the restaurant list are some fun events happening to enjoy with mom, too.
This time of year, we’d normally be offering up a huge list of Easter dining and family events for you to enjoy, but 2021 is different with COVID-19 and the quarantine.
Thankfully, with more people getting vaccinated, local restaurants and other businesses are offering more Easter brunches and dinners, as well as fun Easter-themed things to do as a family.
So if you’re celebrating Easter this year, here is our list of dining and events worth checking out. Please be careful – wear your masks and social distance. Restaurants listed have pledged to observe COVID safety protocols.
We start the year off with a lot of Orlando dining news. In this week’s round-up: new openings, new chefs, and some local beverage news. Are you hungry? Let’s dive in…
The Southern-inspired, farm-fresh restaurant PB&G at Four Seasons Resort Orlando now has its own custom bourbon.
In partnership with Four Roses Distillery in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, this particular bourbon has been aged in a charred oak barrel since October 2004, and is made up of 60 percent corn, 35 percent rye, and a 5 percent malted barley base.
If you’re like me, nothing satisfies the hunger like a good brunch, and last weekend, I had the opportunity to try the new Sunday Brunch at Highball & Harvest at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes.
The brunch only runs from noon to 2pm, so we arrived just as they were opening the buffet area. Taking a quick spin around the room, I saw a nice selection of breakfast dishes, salads, cheeses, carved meats, savory dishes, and more.
