Laura R emailed this week:
I'm looking for suggestions for Mother's Day breakfast/brunch places in the area. I'm guessing the reservations fill up quick. Got any? Thanks!
Our short answer: yep, a lot of places are probably already booked or close to it. And places that don't take reservations will probably have long lines.
But, hey, it's worth a shot. The new New World Bistro Bar on Delaware is starting brunch service up this Sunday (!) -- we called this afternoon and they still have a few reservation slots available (694-0520). We also checked with the Gideon Putnam in Saratoga -- they have "a handful of tables" left later in the afternoon (584-3000).
Here's a compilation of all the Mother's Day specials over at Table Hopping.
If you have any suggestions for Laura, we'd love to hear them. We're also hoping you might have alternative ideas -- maybe a great place to have a picnic, take a walk, or do something else that 1) your mom would love and 2) doesn't involve a reservation.

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
