Produced by The Infatuation with
After months of not being able to see your family, you might not want to spend Mother’s Day sitting at a crowded restaurant. Or maybe you can’t get together, but you still want to send something delicious, like pumpkin sage risotto, or a bunch of soup dumplings. Either way, we have 10 great spots offering pickup and delivery to give the mothery person in your life the meal they deserve.
Kismet, a Mediterranean restaurant in Los Feliz, serves kind-of-healthy food that tastes great. We love their flakey bread, Persian crispy rice, and anything that comes with a vegetable, which is basically their whole menu. If you know your mom is looking for some bigger dishes to feed multiple people, go with either the rabbit for two or the mezze meal that comes with over seven small plates ranging from lamb meatballs to labneh.
Whether you’re ordering breakfast, lunch, or dinner, a Mother’s Day that involves several plates of soup dumplings is one we fully endorse. And this legendary dim sum chain is offering delivery and takeout from all their SoCal locations (Arcadia, Century City, Glendale, Torrance, and Costa Mesa). That means no matter where you live, you’re probably not too far from these piping hot dumplings.
Sahm is the third LA location of the growing Night + Market empire, and the first one to bring its tremendous Thai cuisine to the Westside. This casual spot has all the best dishes from the other locations (the top standouts being the fried chicken sandwich and panang curry with hanger steak), plus big group meal packages that can feed two to four people.
The classic neighborhood Italian spot in Los Feliz is great for Mother’s Day because they offer an array of options ranging from meals for two and four people, picnic kits, and plenty of to-go cocktails as well. For the group meals, you’re able to customize the whole thing so Mom will get exactly what she wants. Dishes range from grilled artichoke to spaghetti and meatballs to tiramisu.
Ostrich Farm is an Eastside standby and the kind of place that feels fancy, but most entrees cost under $20. The entire menu is filled with dishes we’d always be happy to eat, including flatbreads, sandwiches, and entrees ranging from pumpkin sage risotto to ribeye. That said, if you aren’t in the mood to order a la carte this Mother’s Day, go for any of their family meals that feed four people. Options include a $52 bacon-wrapped meatloaf, spicy pork sausage lasagna for $50, and fried chicken for $52.
LA’s outpost of this famous Brooklyn pizza spot is an ideal way to celebrate your mom who successfully put up with your FaceTime antics for an entire year. This Culver City spot serves tremendous wood-fired pizzas - the iconic “Bee Sting” with soppressata, basil, chile, and honey is excellent, as is the “Cheesus Christ” that’s loaded with mozzarella, taleggio, parm, black pepper, and cream.
Majordomo has a menu filled with Korean dishes like kimchi fried rice, pork shoulder ssam, and bing that comes with everything from spicy lamb to butter and honey. While it’s a great option for this Mother’s Day, we also love it for when we want to get at least three orders of bing and aren’t interested in sharing with any other family members.
If you can barely get your mom to agree to eat anything besides some sort of carb with cheese, order from Antico. The Italian restaurant in Ktown switched things up during the pandemic, doing away with their full menu and now exclusively serving only focaccia pizza, ice cream, and side salads. Their $74 meal for four package comes with a bottle of wine, Caesar salad, pepperoni pizza, and ice cream of your choice.
Bone Kettle stands out from the rest of the upscale restaurants in Downtown Pasadena with one of the most interesting menus in the neighborhood. The dishes range from nasi goreng to oxtail dumplings to pork belly sisig, and we also recommend getting Mom involved with their excellent to-go cocktails as well.
Wood Spoon in Downtown LA has some of the best Brazilian food in town. That means seafood stew in a coconut sauce, almondegas with creamy polenta, and our favorite chicken pot pie in the entire world. It’s pure comfort food, and that’s exactly what your mom deserves this year.
This upscale Southeast Asian spot checks all the boxes for a big family meal on Mother’s Day - they’ve got spicy soups, large plates of roasted meats, and some tremendous curries. Start with the spicy wontons stuffed with cod, shrimp, and country ham, then get the curried beef rendang, and finish it off with some laksa - a Peranakan coconut seafood stew that your mom will probably request for every special occasion moving forward.
If your mom is a serious wine person, she probably already knows about Wally’s. If she keeps mentioning that she wants to be a serious wine person, you should definitely order from Wally’s for Mother’s Day. This Beverly Hills spot is kind of a scene - but since you’re ordering on Caviar, you don’t need to worry about a wealthy patron judging you for not ordering the Grand Cru. Be sure to get the burger, charcuterie, and the carbonara pizzetta.
Guelaguetza is a Oaxacan restaurant in Koreatown, and a great place to order from when you want to say “Thank you, Mom” with a quart of mole negro. If that doesn’t remind her why she put up with you all these years, throw in a tlayuda, and some molotes de papa con chorizo. The fried dough stuffed with potatoes and chorizo is the perfect vessel for all that rich mole.
Eataly, the restaurant/grocery store/wine shop in the Westfield Century City, is open for all your Italian food- and drink-related needs this Mother’s Day. They’ve got a bunch of prepped antipasti, pastas, and pizzas, along with DIY pasta kits and Italian wines. The bucatini all’amatriciana is our favorite thing to order here, but the massive menu has very few weak spots.
