Mother's Bistro & Bar

Editor’s Pick

$$ American/New American, Breakfast


Cookbook author and comfort food matriarch Lisa Schroeder serves all the classics mom used to make—that is, if your mom put smoked salmon and caramelized onions in the mac and cheese. She even shares her motherly love with a “Mother of the Month” menu, with special dishes from cooks who earned their stripes the hard way: raising kids. The raucous Sunday brunch is known for rich Portabella mushroom scramble and fluffy, teddy bear–shaped pancakes—made for the kiddies, but sophisticated enough for adults.
