For the mum who loves Italian cuisine

Get your head up in the clouds in this decade-old contemporary Italian restaurant where a reasonably-priced three-course Mother’s Day lunch ($78) awaits. Savour the fresh starters of a tomato medley and buffalo mozzarella or a rich foie gras terrine with a side of stellar views. Next, pick your choice of protein from lamb, beef, or halibut for a hearty main to satiate. And while you wait, the crown jewel of the cannellone will arrive studded with sweet red prawns, green peas and Tuscan seafood stew. With its recent facelift, there’s no better time to bring Mama to Altro Zafferano than right now. Available from May 8 to 13.

  • Raffles Place

For the mum who loves Californian cuisine

Take mum on an elegant Californian country retreat and luxuriate in a sumptuous lunch at the charming Rosemead. This approachable prix-fix course ($68) starts off with six exquisite bites that feature the freshest seasonal ingredients. Think fresh off-the-plane Hama Hama oysters from Washington, smoked Norwegian salmon, spring asparagus and more. Fill up with hearty mains and choose from choice cut meats such as the Duroc Pork Chop, Ora King Salmon or the O’Connor Angus Ribeye. Desserts are kept classic with the decadent showings of American pecan pie and chocolate cake. Whether you’re deep in conversation or gazing at the action in the open-hearth kitchen, it is best paired with a drink in hand. Sip on a pretty pink gin-based Sakura Spritz or a non-alcoholic tropical Sparkling Mango. Available from May 14 only.
