MONTAGE BEVERLY HILLS PRESENTS THE PERFECT GIFT IDEAS TO CELEBRATE MOM THIS MOTHER’S DAY

 

Beverly Hills: In honor of all the wonderful things moms do, Montage Beverly Hills invites families to do something wonderful for Mom this Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 9th.

This year, you can try these special gift ideas:

A beautiful brunch: Treat Mom to an elegant brunch buffet in the Marquesa ballroom adorned with grand chandeliers, a soaring ceiling, opera balconies and twinkling wall sconces all which lend a sense of grandeur to any occasion. Celebrate Mom to the sounds of a jazz trio that will accompany the hotel’s new “Krug Mother’s Day Champagne Brunch”. Toast Mom with a flute of Krug Champagne and dine to your heart’s content at the 10-station holiday buffet. To commemorate the day, pose for photos with Mom compliments of Montage Beverly Hills. The buffet also includes a special gift for your special Mom.

Brunch from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.; $95 adults, $25 children. Call 310-860-7800 for reservations.

A lovely lunch: At Parq restaurant, delight in the garden views and the spring blossoms of the Beverly Canon Gardens. Your family can enjoy a special four-course prix fixe lunch that includes a glass of Krug Grand Cuvée Champagne upon seating.

Appetizer choices include a Corn Agnolotti accented with fava beans and pea tendrils, or Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup, touched with a bit of basil and creamy burrata.

The second course features the freshest spring greens in two salads, one adventurous (cantaloupe, ricotta salata and lemon vinaigrette) and one familiar, the classic Caesar. Entrée choices include a hearty Braised Veal Cheek accompanied by risotto alla carbonara or a delicate, Roasted Halibut with grilled peaches and pistachios.

After lunch, guests may adjourn to Parq’s European-inspired display kitchen where Executive Pastry Chef Richard Ruskell will create his legendary dessert buffet.

Enhance your mother-daughter spa day with Spa Montage’s new manicures and pedicures from Spa Ritual, vegan and paraben-free products dedicated to the environment. With over 80 shades, choose to energize, balance, or relax with organic ingredients like moisturizing Italian Mandarin Oil, Indonesian Ginger, or French Lavender.
