Mother's Day in Astoria

Mami and Me - Mother's Day '07

Mother's Day is this Sunday so I thought I'd provide you with helpful hints on where to take Mama. The great thing about an Astorian Mother's Day is that you can choose between a high-end prix-fix or a casual brunch or dinner. The choice is yours!

Below are some of Astoria's great eats for Mother's Day.

: This new Greek eatery is social and fun but also has an upscale feel, which Mom will like. Their seafood is out of this world and so fresh! Although they are not having a specific Mother's Day special, I encourage you to try their regular menu.

34-19 30th Avenue, Astoria, NY 11103. 718.721.3530
N/W Train to 30th Avenue

Brick Cafe: A charming bistro style eatery with great outdoor seating and yummy Mediterranean dishes. They're offering a brunch/dinner combo menu on Mother's Day but prices will remain as usual.

30-95 33rd Street, Astoria, NY 11102. 718.267.2735
N/W Train to Broadway or 30th Avenue

Cavo: This elegant Greek haven is celebrating Mother's Day with a bang! Cavo is known to be expensive but you get great quality food. Their Mother's Day special includes a 4-course $49 prix-fix special. An added bonus? All moms get a $20 Cavo gift card.

Mojave: This modern Southwestern joint and sibling of NYC's Agave will serve their regular menu items on Mother's Day. You will not feel like you are in Queens here--the space is absolutely gorgeous, which will impress Mom.

22-36 31st Street, Astoria, NY 11105. 718.545.4100
N/W Train to Ditmars Blvd (last stop)

Ovelia: A contemporary Greek eatery and the heartbeat of Astoria's 30th Avenue, Ovelia offers amazing eats and a fun indoor and outdoor atmosphere. For Mother's Day, they'll serve their regular brunch menu and for dinner they'll have a Rack of Lamb special as well as their regular dinner menu items.

Stove: An endearing and peaceful Irish restaurant with a quaint outdoor garden, friendly staff and delicious comfort food. They're offering a $35 prix-fix menu for Mother's Day, which consists of an appetizer, entree, dessert, tea and coffee. I have the menu on-hand so please email me at critic@foodistanyc.com if you'd like to see it.

Trattoria L'Incontro: This is definitely the Astorian splurge but worth every penny. You'll get the freshest pasta in town, great wine and an a homey atmosphere to boot! They offer a $60 prix-fix menu, including an appetizer, entree and dessert. Space is VERY limited so if you're interested call now.
