Mother’s Day is coming up on a Thursday, and you want to make your mom feel appreciated. While showering her with gifts is a great option, it would be even better if you spent quality time with her as well. So if you haven’t got anything planned this Mother’s Day, here is a list of places you can take your mother to for dinner. You’re welcome!
- Crimson’s Bar & Grill
Crimson’s, in a lot of ways, is an ideal restaurants for grownups. It’s upscale without being uptight, the service is fantastic and there are different food options to fit everyone’s tastes. They serve sharable appetizers, soups, a bunch of pastas, grills and an assortment of desserts. Your parents will also appreciate the view, the space and the fact that you can hear each other and have a decent conversation – without being stuffy.
Located in the heart of Korba, Sachi is an impressive reckoning of what a trendy neighborhood restaurant should look like. Expectations are high at Sachi and that goes both ways. You are expected to come when they’ll have you—you might be waitlisted for four nights, only to win a 10pm Wednesday spot. You’re expected to wear the right clothes, pay a non-negotiable service charge and pretend you aren’t eating in a food court of a shopping mall. The restaurant, in return, is expected to deliver one hell of a tasting menu. And it does. We suggest you try and book now!
One of Marriott’s signature restaurants, JW’s Steakhouse is a well-known staple amongst the elites of Cairo. It’s perfect for family get-togethers and hence, Mother’s Day! Treat your mom to JW’s Steakhouse’s masterfully done steaks with all the trimmings with their outstanding service and awesome ceilings and décor. It’s definitely a top contender in its genre!
If your mom generally never leaves Heliopolis, feel free to check out Pepenero restaurant. This cozy place is an Italian restaurant located in one of Korba’s long-standing buildings with a unique design and style aesthetic that serves a variety of delicious Italian pizzas and pasta dishes. Since Mother’s Day is coming up during the weekend, you can have the chance to try their delicious salad bar.
5-U Bistro & Bar
What we love about U Bistro is that how versatile it is; you can enjoy a night out with your friends sipping cocktails through the night and you can enjoy a fine-dining experience as a family for Mother’s Day. Appetizers include beef carpaccio, beef tartare with crispy couscous, while mains consist of a veal milanese, grilled salmon and pan seared sea bass with grilled prawns and seafood rice. This restaurant-meets-bar venue is definitely a great option for dinner!
When in doubt, go to Mori! We couldn’t not include Mori Sushi on the list because it may not be fancy as many of the options on our list, but it is one of the most popular – if not the best – sushi places all around Egypt. Treat your mom to sushi and she’ll love you for it – more than she already does!
An oldie, but a goodie! While we’re all for cheap Asian eats most of the time, we do appreciate devouring L’asiatique’s Asian fine-dining food from time to time. Unlike most Asian cuisines in Egypt, this one features a striking selection of specialty dishes from China, Japan, Thailand and India! Definitely worth it!
Thai fine-dining with a view! When people as us where to go and have great Thai food, we always recommend Birdcage in Semiramis InterContinental hotel. It’s between uptown and downtown, the service is always good and it’s severely underrated! It’s perfect for date night or for a family get-together celebrating Mother’s Day!
9-Bella Four Seasons
When you think of Four Seasons Nile Plaza, you automatically think of weddings in the Plaza ballroom. However, there are three different fine-dining restaurants located there that are extremely underrated. The food at Bella, this Italian cuisine, is as fresh as the decor, including unusually mains like carpaccio di filetto di manzo, risotto alla pescatora, and insalata di salmone.
We couldn’t end our list without including a Lebanese restaurant and in that case, we would have to pick Ayadina! This restaurant might be a tad pricey compared to other Lebanese restaurants, but don’t let the price put you off, as each dish is extremely fresh and perfectly seasoned. There is a dazzling array of choices with highlights such Chicken Fattah, Mixed Grill, Sojouk Arrayes and their Kebbeh Labanieh. This is definitely a safe option for celebrating Mother’s Day dinner!
