Miami Beach’s Best for Mother’s Day

From free steak to free massages, here's the best stuff to do for Mom this Sunday.

Mothers, like snowflakes and single malt scotches, are all different.  So if you were to ask us, “Hey, Miami Beach 411, where in Miami Beach should I take my mom for Mother’s Day?” our answer would entirely depend on what she likes. Buffets? Beer? Bloody Marys? Poolside massages? All of the above? With so many options to choose from, we’ve given you our top picks for the best Mother’s Day brunches, dinners, and over-the-top packages in Miami Beach.


Best Mother’s Day Deal - Beer 360 - the brand new Brazilian steakhouse/craft beer emporium in Sunny Isles -  lets mom eat brick furnace-cooked top sirloin, filet mignon, massive beef ribs or any other entrée on their menu ABSOLUTELY FREE. Provided she’s in a party of . But, really, if mom is eating alone on Mother’s Day, paying for dinner is probably the least of her problems. Bring a party of two and mom will receive a FREE entrée and a rose

Best Brunch Buffet that Won’t Cost You a Car Payment - Vida, the Fontainebleau’s not-bank-braking dining option, will offer a delectable Mother’s Day Brunch including sushi and raw bar, rotisserie selections, salad station, charcuterie and an interactive dessert station. Served from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the buffet style menu is priced at $65 per person.

Best Mother’s Day Dim Sum - Is at an Italian restaurant. No joke. Macchialina it taking their Italian take on the Chinese staple with a cart full of Tuscan Chicken Wings, Sicilian Prawns, Arancini, Ricotta Raviolini, Fried Calamari & Zucchini, Steamed Mussels, Short Rib Cannelloni and more from 12-4 p.m., plus bottomless bloody Marys & mimosas for $20


Best Mother’s Day Brunch with a View - The Mondrian South Beach’s poolside restaurant lets you and mom look across the bay at downtown while carb-loading on their special bakery board, featuring Banana Muffins, Jalapeno Cheddar Corn Bread and Cinnamon Pecan Buns. Or go heavier with cinnamon roll pancakes, salmon eggs benedict, a mini lobster & crab roll and steak and eggs. Then finish with a mom-inspired dessert station and realize it’ll be a couple weeks before you’re able to take your shirt off at that pool again.

Best Mother’s Day Massage - Because the best things in life are free, we award this one to Terrazza at the Shore Club where, before sitting down to Terrazza’s usual massive Italian buffet and special-for-Mother’s_Day raw bar with Alaskan king crab, oysters, shrimp cocktail and more, mom’s will get free massages in the garden. Oh, and unlimited mimosas and bellinis too.


Best Mother’s Day Bloody Mary - Maybe Mom went a little too hard on Mother’s Day Eve and needs a little hair of the dog. Or just prefers to drink her brunch. Either way, there’s no better place to go than Florida Cookery at the James Royal Palm for their $23 Breakfast Bloody Mary. The “breakfast in a glass” includes Ketel One vodka, house-made bloody mary mix, cocktail shrimp and candied bacon garnished with celery, cherry tomato/olive skewer and pickle spear.

Best Mother’s Day For The Mom Who Bailed You Out of Jail - You’re going to need to go all out. Lucky for you Acqualina’s giving mom an oceanfront luxury suite, four 50 minute Body or Facial Treatments at ESPA, lunch for two, free Internet access and a special welcome amenity. It’s $695, but that’s still probably less than she had to pay the bondsman.

Best Mother’s Day Dinner - Not only is Dolce at the Gale hotel offing up the Beach’s best Italian food in a well-worth-it $35 prix fixe menu with stuff like Dolce Meatballs with polenta, parmigiano; pastas, including Orccehiette Bolognese - braised beef, veal & pork ragu, and branzino with butternut squash and Sicilian pesto, but you can get the family-style feast for just $50 per person with UNLIMITED WINE.

Best Brunch you Can Only Get on Mother’s Day - Miami Beach legend The Forge opens for brunch one time a year. And it happens to be this Sunday where brand new Michelin-starred Executive Chef Christopher Lee has a prix fixe menu with beef carpaccio BLTs, surf & turf Benedict, Black Smith push-up pops and a handful of other selections that you won’t find the other 364 days a year.
