Mother's Day and SD dining

How was everyone's Mother's Day dining experience? Instead of brunch (tired of carrying around plates, kids eating a couple shrimp for $30, and then feeling totally stuffed), we opted for lunch at Tapenade. It was lovely. A lot of people there too. It was nice to be served and not hurried along for a leisurely lunch. The kids menu was simply Caesar salad, organic chicken, pomme frites and a lovely strawberry sorbet dessert for $19. The chicken was awesome and cooked perfectly and was actually their favorite. We also had the adult menu (there were 5 choices) with wild mushroom ravioli in a port reduction sauce (delicious but got a little heavy after 3), steak with a tasty pepper sauce. Other choices were: salmon, duck confit and shrimp with lobster risotto. Tried the chocolate marquise and the strawberry dessert and both were wonderful. Service was superb, as usual. It has changed my mind about ever doing brunch buffets for Mother's Day again.
