The Oak Room (at the Plaza Hotel: 212-758-7777)
We think $85 is a solid amount to spend on Mom this Mother's Day. Nay, it's a downright bargain.
Especially if it involves champagne, the swanky Plaza hotel, and unrestricted access to a fantastic raw bar.
But that's not all. Moms should bring a serious appetite to this brunch deal...since the lunch includes a choice of entree, carving station, a trolley serving small bites likes pastrami sliders and smoked salmon with bellini caviar, and a dessert bar---should you still be (suspiciously) hungry.
You don't even need to waste time buying something special for Mom, since all mothers will take away a gift bag filled with certificates and special deals from Plaza retailers.
