Gilchrist Restaurant

Atlantic City, Galloway & Margate
 
 

Mom will love this hometown breakfast and lunch joint for two reason: Pancakes and Blueberry Pancakes!  The fluffy flapjacks are thin but as big and round as the plate.  Light enough to make mom believe they're better than any pancake she could ever make in her own kitchen!

Hands down the best Italian cuisine this side of the Atlantic Ocean.  That's what keeps the locals (and even some celebs) coming back over and over.  Try the gnochhi, homemade chianti, and banana cheesecake!

Continental

Atlantic City & Philadelphia
 
 

A super vibey, sexy atmosphere will put mom back in touch with her cool side!  Share tapas, and sip on champagne cocktails in the lowest, most flattering lighting in all the land.  Mom will be totally relaxed after her visit.  Oh, don't forget to suggest the lobster wasabi mashed potatoes!

Not a lot of scratch to really splurge on mom?  Go simple and low key by introducing her to the best coal oven pizza in Jersey.  You can smell the dough baking from the time you approach the intersection of  Tilton Road and Route 9!  Pizza options are endless offering every topping you could imagine!  But the margarita Sicilian is unparalleled.

This restaurant and lounge also boasts a bakery!  They serve an incredible brunch on Mother's Day complete with mimosas!  It's swanky and lively for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just cocktails!  Try the baked scallops, they're crunchy and meaty.

If you want to stay off the island on Mother's Day, the offshore cafe's menu is chock full of variety, Ventura's offers lots for mom to choose from!  The cozy atmosphere will keep her feeling relaxed even for a quick bite.  Take the whole family to celebrate with a pizza pie big enough for a feast!  Also, I love the coconut shrimp appetizer and the salmon and spinach tortellini salad!

White truffle and bleu cheese ribbon potato chips and wild mushroom risotto cooked to perfection.  Need I say more?  You might even get lucky and leave with a Wolfgang sighting!  He tends to pop up on special occasion!
