The door to DFW restaurants has cracked open just in time for Mother’s Day. It’s been a long few weeks of quarantine, and now that some restaurants are reopening for socially distanced dining, they are finding creative ways to host Mother’s Day.
For some, their mothers are out of town, too far away to visit. In other cases, their mothers may be residing in some kind of longterm care center, where they haven’t been able to visit in weeks. The lucky ones are those who will be able to be with their mothers this Sunday, many for the first time in a long time.
Many restaurants are still relying on takeout only, and others are open at 25 percent capacity. All of them require some early planning in order to take advantage of their specials.
To that end, we’ve included restaurants that are offering takeout specials for Mother’s Day, as well as ones that are open at 25 percent capacity. Here are a few of the best to-go meals and special deals for Mother’s Day, May 10.
This Spanish tapas place is open at 25 percent capacity. On Mother’s Day weekend, they are offering a brunch package at home for 4-6 people, served with patatas bravas and mixed green salad. A meal comes with pan-seared chicken, Serrano ham, red pepper stew, and paella, as well as blueberry ricotta pancakes or waffles with Nutella. For $20, you can pick up mimosas for 6-8. Wine is also 50 percent off.
