Make Mom’s Day with an Elegant Brunch At the Royal Sonesta Hotel

This Mother’s Day, why not treat the woman who does it all with a gourmet feast in the heart of the historic French Quarter. On May 11th, the landmark Royal Sonesta Hotel presents their signature Mother’s Day Brunch in the elegant Grand Ballroom. With over 15 different food stations and displays, free-flowing Champagne, and live entertainment by legendary Jazz musician Glen David Andrews, this “Royal” brunch is guaranteed to please. 
Ease into brunch by toasting the occasion with a mimosa or a Bloody Mary from our famous Bloody Mary Bar. For starters, enjoy a decadent bowl of Lobster and Crab Bisque with Whipped Brandy Cream. Then, head over to the gourmet Carving Station for such mouth-watering offerings as the Love Rubbed Roasted Whole Duck with Plum Duck Jus and Wild Rice Pilaf. Our expert culinary team has prepared sumptuous entrée selections designed just for Mom. One such signature dish is the Creole Paella with Shrimp, Crawfish, Mussels paired with Saffron Infused Short Grain Rice and Soffrito. 
If breakfast is what she craves, Mom will love the legendary Begue’s Benedict Station, which offers three different variations of Eggs Benedict served just the way she likes it. Traditionalists may opt for the Classic Benedict with Canadian Bacon while the Eggs Sardou with Artichoke Bottoms, Spinach and Herbsaint Cream appeases with a certain je ne sais quoi for lovers of all things French. 
The expansive Seafood Station displays an impressive variety of fresh catches. Dive in with the Spicy Boiled Jumbo Shrimp, Marinated Blue Crab Claws, and Red Snapper Ceviche, just to name a few. Or, allow our Oyster Shucker to serve up succulent Oysters on the half Shell opened right before your eyes so you know they’re fresh. Mom simply must experience the Sushi & Caviar Station with an array of tasty House Made Sushi Rolls that will complete her venture into seafood paradise. 
Everyone’s favorite, the Bananas Foster Station is a New Orleans classic that presents dessert with flair. Load up on all of the fixings, including Sautéed Bananas, Rum Foster Sauce, Petit Waffles, Cherries Jubilee and Ice Cream. For more tempting dessert options, The Grand Patisserie will transport you straight to Paris with such sweet creations as the Lavender Crème Brulee, Chocolate Covered Croquembouche, and another Crescent city staple, New Orleans Style Bread Pudding with Butter Scotch Sauce. 
The little ones will be delighted with mini versions of their favorite foods prepared at the Children’s Express. They’ll love the Chicken Fingers, Mini Hamburgers and Cheeseburgers and the Royal Sonesta’s famous Macaroni and Cheese, all sized just for them. Children can even decorate their own heart shaped sugar cookies for Mom. What fun!
