A Mother’s Day Must: Brunch at High-End Hotels

This year, skip the stress of crafting the perfect breakfast in bed at home and let the chefs at these top-notch hotels take care of the menu instead. Turn it into a mini-staycation and stay the night for a romantic getaway, or simply enjoy a lavish spread the whole afternoon. Here, a few of our favorite bi-coastal options.

Viceroy Santa Monica, Los Angeles

Before heading off to spend a day with your toes in the sand, do like Californians do and dine al fresco at CAST at the Viceroy ($65 adults, $25 children 10 and under). There, peruse a variety of carving stations, as well as more SoCal-influenced fare like open-faced tartines, salads, and roasted seasonal vegetables. Be sure to save room for some eats chef Tony DiSalvo will create from his Santa Monica Farmers Market haul, including a spiced roasted carrot and avocado salad, or roasted beets and burrata with pistachios, cress, and arugula.
