Lots of special boxes and meals available but people have to order ahead
'In the "before times," Mother's Day at restaurants and other food operations was one of the business's top revenue drivers — more than sending flowers or dropping by with a box of chocolates.
Canadian families — nearly 40 percent of them — took mom out for brunch, lunch or dinner on the weekend.
This year, with a stay-at-home order in place that even includes closed restaurant patios, Mother's Day will look quite a bit different.
While it is not possible to include all the special events for mom at area restaurants, here are a few suggestions as the Mother's Day weekend approaches. Be warned: Quantities may be limited and time sensitive for pre-ordering, so please check early with individual venues.
Charcuterie boards have been popular pandemic platters for tight social bubbles. White Rabbit is riffing on that with a chilled seafood board. Chef Andrew Beckford is curing the salmon in-house.
"We're getting seafood from our friends at T & J Seafoods and we will be adding a bottle of Prosecco as an option," Beckford said.
