Made of blackberry and vanilla mouse, blackberry soaked sponge cake, jasmine whipped ganache, white chocolate, and silver leaf, this beauty is almost too stunning to eat. For a sweet treat, Chef Thierry offers a twist on traditional Afternoon Tea with tea-tinctured macarons in the colours of spring, featuring Jasmine (pale pink), Earl Grey (aubergine), Matcha (seafoam), Chai (sienna), and Hibiscus (fuschia). Mother’s Day cakes and macarons are available Friday, May 6th through Sunday, May 8th only and advanced orders are recommended.

On South Granville, West Restaurant Executive Chef Quang Dang invites guests to linger longer over dinner with a special menu that highlights the best of BC’s fresh, seasonal fare such as his roasted Cape Scott halibut a la plancha with ragout of spring vegetables and minted pea puree. Restaurant and Wine Director Owen Knowlton will recommend the perfect wine pairing for a match made in heaven.  West also offers Mother’s Day Brunch but be sure to book well in advance for this always-popular celebration.

At CinCin Ristorante, Executive Chef Andrew Richardson is featuring wood fired seasonal favourites from his Grillworks Infierno and recommends his roasted halibut with salt-baked beets, and beet greens and artichokes with warm shallot vinaigrette. Enjoy the season to the fullest while dining on CinCin’s newly renovated, heated terrace above Robson Street.

Recently voted Vancouver’s “Best Seafood” for the ninth consecutive year, Blue Water Cafe offers the freshest fare from our ocean’s harvest. Enjoy Executuve Chef Frank Pabst’s show-stopper signature seafood tower or the legendary sablefish with miso sake glaze. For a special treat, start with Bar Manager Colin’s delicate and floral ‘Rosita’s Garden’ cocktail.

Make the most of Mother’s Day weekend by whisking Mom to Whistler. Executive Chef James Walt, a pioneer of farm-to-table fare, will deliver innovative dishes overflowing with unforgettable flavours at Araxi Restaurant and Oyster Bar. Next door, newly-opened Bar Oso sets the stage for an evening of Spanish-influenced small plates and house-made charcuterie – perfect for sharing, both food and conversation.
