The buffet is $25 for adults, $12 for kids age 6-12, and free for kids 5 and under. Call 303-765-2695 for reservations.

This Mother’s Day, take a break from shopping or sightseeing downtown and treat Mom to burgers and bubbly at 5280 Burger Bar (Denver Pavilions, 500 16th St. #160). This Mother’s Day, 5280 Burger Bar will offer a special Build Your Own Mimosa Bar.

Not into mimosas? Treat Mom to a Colorado craft beer, specialty cocktail, or boozy milkshake instead, all of which pair well with the handcrafted, all-natural and never-frozen beef and bison burgers with housemade buns, ketchup and American cheese. Moms especially love the Burger Bowl: Angus beef, grilled chicken, turkey or bison over fresh greens with tomato, cheese and a touch of housemade ranch dressing.
Let mom spend Sunday her way and then treat her to dinner at the newly opened Concourse (10195 East 29th Drive, Denver) in the Eastbridge Town Center of the Stapleton neighborhood.

Mom will be impressed with the Roasted Beet Salad with surprising arugula sorbet (yes, sorbet) and the dreamy Lobster Chitarra Pasta with caramelized milk solids, lemon powder, and shiso. You’ll likely want to toast mom so be sure to enjoy a few signature springtime cocktails, especially the Strawberry Fennelade with local Anders’ vodka, strawberries, and fennel seed.

Executive Chef Chris Kobayahi and his team pull out all the stops for brunch, including craveable dishes like their version of the super trendy layered pancake, the Banana Pudding Layered Pancakes that arrives tableside as a towering stack of banana pancakes alternating with banana pudding and nilla wafers; or the Shoo Mercy Sweet Potato Pancakes with buttermilk fried chicken, apple cider bacon, spiced pecans, fried eggs, grilled apple and fresh blueberries. Moms looking for savory goodness can dig into the Debutante Duck Confit, Tupelo’s version of the Croque madame with duck confit, country ham, and prosciutto along with guyère cheese, two fried eggs, and challah bread. It’s not brunch without a cocktail, so wash it down with a Community Cocktail like the Derby Day Mint Julep, served in a galvanized bucket with a stack of straws or the Bloody Beets, a beauty of beet-infused vodka with fresh lemon juice, beet bloody mary mix, celery, and a tart lime salt rim.
