(CBS4) – Making sure Mother’s Day is perfect can be tricky during the best of times but this year in Denver, it means really thinking outside the traditional brunch. Earlier this week CBS4 talked with Chef Frank Bonnano about taking extra steps to make Mom feel special and how his restaurants are doing just that.
“If we can take those extra steps to make it a little bit special for you at your home, that’s what we’re really shooting for,” he said.
With that in minds, restaurants around town are offering brunch specials for delivery or pickup. Here is a smattering of offerings, starting with Bonnano’s Milk Market in LoDo.
Bonnano’s Milk Market

Treat your mom with indulgent breakfast or brunch in bed by building your own menu with favorites like bacon wrapped shrimp and grits, smoke salmon avocado toast and pineapple upside down French toast. You can even add brunch drinks and a bouquet from Perfect Petal.
Denver Beer Market
Maybe the way to pamper Mom is with a luxurious Denver curated at-home spa kit and a six pack of Denver Beer Co’s Tart Delight (or the beer of her choice). That spa kit also includes a coupon for a facial down the road.
Celebrate Mom for brunch or dinner. Brunch is a chance to test your creativity, putting together avocado toast with salad and salad. Dinner includes spring pesto Cavatappi with salmon and spring veggies. Both includes a spring bouquet.
