Happy Mother’s Day
Here are three delicious options for treating your mom like a queen on Mother’s Day, May 9.
Traditional, Yet Exotic
Give the usual Mother’s Day brunch an exciting spin with a meal at SushiSamba, which serves delicacies from Brazil, Peru and Japan., The a la carte brunch menu includes a complimentary mimosa and features churros with Peruvian hot chocolate; a Japanese mushroom torta; lobster mac and cheese with shaved truffle and manchego cheese; duck confit hash with an English muffin and eggs Benedict; and more. All moms get a special, surprise treat as well.

Because it’s so rarely done here in the U.S., having afternoon tea with an assortment of sandwiches and pastries is a true treat, and you’re sure to impress mom with tea on the 23rd floor of the Mandarin Oriental at CityCenter (pictured above). Overlooking the Strip, enjoy a number of tea options, including the Madarin Orange Blend black tea specifically customized for the resort, and the Jasmine Pearl white tea with a sweet aroma. Accompaniments include petite sandwiches made of egg salad chives on brioche and Black Forest ham with horseradish cream. You can also order bento boxes with just chocolate, cupcakes or pastries of the day to sample with your tea.
