Bianca at Delano
Italians believe that a table filled with good friends and family is the key to longevity. Inspired by that, we've chosen three Italian eateries for the perfect, family-friendly Mother's Day brunch. Buon appetito!
Bianca at Delano South Beach
Bianca will launch its new ongoing Sunday brunch on Mother's Day, offering traditional Italian dishes and an assortment of midday favorites. The afternoon feast will feature sushi, courtesy of Delano's Umi Sushi & Sake Bar, Bloody Mary oyster shooters, cured meats, and handmade pastas. Diners can also fill their plates with cuts of rosemary prime rib, Belgium waffles, and classic pastries. The $55 per person cost includes one complimentary Bellini or Bella cocktail and a reduced valet parking fee.
