Make lunch special with authentic Indian cuisine in EG

Patrons of Rasa often leave having discovered a new favorite food by ordering from the Chef's Set Price Lunch Menu on weekdays, so it’s no surprise they pull out all the stops for occasions like Mother’s Day. Says owner Sanjiv Dhar, “our vision is rooted in creating an inviting and tranquil dining environment where every guest feels cherished.” Along with a focus on exceptional service, dishes emphasize fresh, healthy ingredients, which extends to their cocktail and mocktail program, “where we use house-infused ingredients to craft beverages that are both refreshing and unique.” 

Mother’s Day specials will be available throughout the weekend, with details and reservations going live closer to the date. “Last year, our guests were delighted by an exquisite grilled cauliflower appetizer, alongside a savory salmon special, a spring Vegetable Kofta, and a special dessert and cocktail,” shares Dhar. “This year, our chefs are back at the drawing board concocting new culinary delights to honor this special occasion.” East Greenwich,

Cozy breakfast with the family in Westerly

If it’s classic diner-style breakfast that mom’s craving, look no further than The Pantry. Now under the ownership of Justin and Kristen Morgan, a pair passionate about creating an inviting and delicious experience, “The Pantry is a place where good people come to eat good food and have good times,” says Justin of the breakfast-all-day community mainstay. “It’s a perfect place for families, and we want everyone to feel welcome, both locals and tourists alike!”

“Our house-made Corned Beef Hash is a top seller, along with our custom omelets, burgers, and other breakfast classics,” he says. There’s also the Spicy Italian or Sweet Potato hashes, which all come with two eggs, homefries, and toast. For sweeter fare, don’t miss out on Stuffed French Toast, filled with your choice of fresh berries, mascarpone, Nutella, and other decadent options. Mother’s Day choices are still in the works, but Justin assures, “We will absolutely be cooking up something special!” Westerly,

Mimosas and Mom’s Benedict with a view in Wickford

Nothing says “treat yourself” quite like brunch and mimosas with a water view – and it’s the motherly figures in your life you’ll be treating come May 12 with a visit to Wickford on the Water. “It’s a relaxed vacation type of atmosphere here,” says owner John Brito. “We are known for great food, fun drinks, and service” – and on Mother’s Day, brunch takes the spotlight. Brito also owns JB on the Water in Jamestown, and both will be serving specials for the occasion.

Whether it’s caffeine or cocktails that fuel your morning of luxury, Brito explains that along with fresh fruit-puree mimosas, moms can choose from Nuts and Berries Iced Coffee or a Loaded Bloody Mary. For the main course, “Moms” Benedict is an open-face grilled English muffin topped with two poached eggs, pesto hollandaise, bruschetta tomatoes, and arugula with balsamic glaze drizzle. There will also be a Lobster Frittata and Monte Cristo Bake. Reservations are always encouraged, so book online early.
