Wondering what is on the menu for Mother's Day Brunch? Well, if you are headed to the English Grill at the Brown Hotel, below is an idea of what you can expect at this famous spot on Mother's Day. 

Call ahead to confirm, but there usually is soup, four or five salads to choose from, a seafood table—think classic shrimp cocktail, oysters on the half shell and salmon—an assortment of cured meats and local cheeses, a couple of quiche options, a meat or fish option, and, of course, desserts.

Not only is it a delicious meal, but you can treat your mother a Mother's Day meal and enjoy some time in downtown Louisville. Stroll Main Street's historic buildings, or, if you are feeling up for entertainment, tour Evan William's Bourbon Experience and/or see if there is a play at Actors Theatre of Louisville.
