I’ve written posts the last couple of weeks regarding upcoming weekend events, so I thought I’d do the same this week but focus specifically on the various eateries in town that are offering specials for Mother’s Day on Sunday. This is my very first Mother’s Day as a mom, so I’m a bit overly excited, I think. It is also the day that my younger sister graduate from Rollins College, so overall it is going to be a great day for us! My entire family is attending her graduation ceremony, and then we are all having a great lunch to celebrate both her achievement and Mother’s Day at Bosphorous in Winter Park. I am so excited!!
Below I’ve listed just a few of the special food events going on around town for Mother’s Day. If you are interested in any of them, I highly recommend contacting the location ASAP to make reservations!
Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar
The Mother’s Day special at Fleming’s this year sounds delicious! Fleming’s is offering a three-course prix fixe brunch for $34.95 per person, which is a pretty great deal. The entree options all sound tantalizing, from the Filet Mignon Benedict, to the Prime Rib or New Orleans-Style French Toast. Plus, who can resist White Chocolate Bread Pudding or Creme Brulee for dessert?
In addition to brunch, each mother will receive a $25 dining card to use on a future visit to Fleming’s Steakhouse.
Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar has locations in both Dr. Phillips and Winter Park and will be serving brunch on Mother’s Day from 11:30am until 3:00pm. You can make reservations at their website.
The Rosen Centre Hotel
The Rosen Centre Hotel, located on International Drive, is offering what sounds to be an incredible Mother’s Day Brunch Buffet from 11:00am until 5:00pm on Sunday. You can view the full menu listing here, but it includes some amazing dishes such as Braised Short Ribs with Fingerling Potatoes & Pinot Noir Sauce, Nutella Pancakes, and Grilled Mahi with Chardonnay Cream & Fresh Dill. In addition to the entrees and breakfast items offered, there is going to be a sushi station, a tapas station, an antipasto display, a seafood station, and much more! Not only does the food sound incredible, the price of the buffet includes unlimited mimosas and champagne!

Unfortunately, I don’t have the time to list all of the Mother’s Day dining options available this year in the Orlando area (motherhood calls!), so if you are particularly excited about one that you don’t see listed here, please feel free to leave the information in the comments and I’ll be glad to add it to my list!
Happy Mother’s Day!!
