Mother's Day in LA

Mother's day dinner

Started over 150 years ago, Mother's Day is a celebration of appreciation that dates further back than many of us can even remember. From changing diapers to cheerleading at sports games, to never missing a birthday (even when she's got an international business meeting!), mothers are some of the most dedicated people we know. For all her patience, kindness, and love, moms deserve a little loving. Isn't it time you did something for her?

Cafe Sevilla

Time to spice it up! Café Sevilla offers something a little more Latin for Mother's Day. Featuring live Flamenco guitarists from 11:00am to 2:00pm, Café Sevilla will be offering all you can drink champagne brunch from 10 am to 2:30pm. Adults eat for $34.95 and children ages 6 to 12 eat for just $14.95. And if that's not enough spice for your Mother's special day, Cafe Sevilla will also be hosting Flamenco Dinner Shows. The first performance at 12:00pm comes with a salad, entrée and dessert $39.50, and the second performance at 6:30pm is served with a three course meal that starts with a House Salad Sevillana, a combination of citrus vinaigrette, goat cheese, tomato and cucumber. The second course kicks things up with options like Surf & Turf Duet in which filet medallions are marinated with Rioja red wine sauce and Sautéed Shrimp Flambé with hazelnut brandy, and a third course with an Andalusian Apple Tart dessert with baked apples over flaky almond crust, with fresh berries, and a sangria reduction. Café Sevilla even has a reasonably priced wine list with full-bodied Spanish reds like Tempranillo and Torre Oria. To see their menu, click HERE. 

The Palm Restaurant

From April 1 to May 31, both locations will be featuring this new three course Italian dinner with your choice of Bone-In Rib Veal Chop Parmigiana or Nova Scotia Lobster Ravioli.
