Let's begin with a restaurant that always gets rave reviews, Match in the SONO section of Norwalk. They've prepared a special Mother's Day menu that's inventive and will tickle your tastebuds. For starters, try their Carpetbaggers, fresh Blue Point oysters, breaded and fried, then returned to the shell with black truffle crema, and truffled steak tartare. Reservations at 203-852-1088.

Let's head over to the Roger Sherman Inn in New Caanan. I've worked a wedding at this gorgeous historical inn. The restaurant has been rated "Excellent" by the New York Times. How does Eggs Benedict or Creme Brulee French Toast sound? I recommend their Pumpkin "Gnudi" Ravioli with pistachio brown butter, grana pidano with amaretti crumble. Reservations at 203-966-4541.

Over the last 19 years, the Red Barn Restaurant in Westport has been honored for its exquisite American/Continental cuisine and the beautiful displays of seasonal flowers. The the Red Barn is rolling out a special Mother's Day menu featuring Australian Sea Bass, Rack of Lamb, and their Seafood Medley. Reservations at 203-222-9549.  Over to Stamford to the Kona GrillWith 30 locations around the USA, the Kona is famous for its award winning sushi and amazingly fresh ingredients. Their menu is a bit more mainstream than the other three restaurant selections.  For starters I recommend their Beef Bulgoggi Tacos with marinated beef inside a thick flaky shell with asian slaw and sweet hoisin sauce. In honor of Mother's Day, if you purchase a gift card for $50 or more, you'll receive a $10 gift card free.
