In better days, we’ve always been able to make a special menu to honor mothers on their day. The situation being what it is, we still wanted to make a few special dishes, but figured they should be dishes that you could acquire on Saturday and be ready to make mom feel as special as she is come Sunday. With that in mind, you can order Mother’s Day food at any point this week for pickup or delivery either Saturday or Sunday. We offer this in hopes that we can get enough of the ingredients by knowing approximately how many of each dish we’re serving, but with supply chains being affected left and right, we thought the sooner we knew what you wanted, the better. Thanks for your patience and understanding. These dishes will be ready for pickup or delivery on Saturday the 9th as well, so you can heat them up on Mother’s Day without ever having to leave the house. Our cutoff for ordering from our fishmonger is 3:30 pm on Friday the 8th, so any order you place after that risks our being sold out when you call.
