The best way to treat Mom for Mother’s Day is to take the pressure off. No demands, no obligations, and no decision making, other than, “Where would you like to have brunch, Mom?” Taking your favorite matriarch to brunch is an ideal way to start a day of pampering. Good food, no clean up and there’s usually a mimosa involved. It’s a win for everyone.

Embers Steak House, 2721 Virginia Circle, 350.3303,

Mother’s Day Brunch at Embers will showcase a smaller menu packed with discounts, perfectly designed to make Mom happy in every way.

Dinner-wise, Embers is running a slew of deals: $3 off prime rib, $3 off salmon, $2 off crispy shrimp appetizer, $2 off pork wings, and $2 towering chocolate cake and carrot cake.

On the brunch menu is chorizo hash, southwestern skillet, huevos rancheros, breakfast tacos, and chilaquiles, which are fried tortilla chips tossed in guajillo sauce and queso fresco, topped with avocado and two eggs. Wash it all down with a mimosa, bloody mary, or La Fiesta’s own Beer-Mosa or Rico Suave.
