5 Mother's Day brunches in Chicago



Price: Normally $70 adults, $25 kids 8 and under. Price for Mother's Day $125 adults, $35 kids under 8.

Mother will love it: Upscale, luxurious food just like Trump would eat: dine on fancy cheeses, prime rib with horseradish, made-to-order omelets, sushi and fresh-squeezed orange juice.

Atmosphere: Similar to a five-star European restaurant. Very sleek, modern and calming.

Kid-friendly assessment: Within five minutes of our arrival, everyone knew our 2-year-old's name, and they presented her with a coloring book, crayons and a stuffed Trump Kids dog. There was a kids' buffet table offering mini-burgers, mini-pizzas and chicken fingers.

We were disappointed: The pancakes and waffles were sitting under a warming lamp, so they didn't taste fresh.

Value: Brunch comes with a mimosa or sparkling wine. Feast on the prosciutto and other meats and cheeses to get your money's worth.

Mother's Day highlights: Ham and prime rib carving, Ahi tuna salad nicoise. Every mom will also receive a complimentary make-up application by Chanel Beaute and will walk away with a flower bouquet.
