Even though Chicagoland Mother's Day Brunch is a crazy competition, it is worth it to get reservations to the Greek Islands in Greektown. I had the old-person reservations (11:15am) at the Greek Islands in Greektown (a block north of Jackson on Halstead). The kids were psyched and my wife was ready. Hardly any traffic to downtown and free valet parking. We got right in and ordered the Saganaki and the Egg Lemon Soup. Deee-licious.
The waiters are extra nice to the Mommies last year there was a Mother's Day gift of a deluxe white mug with the Greek Islands and Turano's bakery emblazoned upon it. Service was good and we desserted with the yogurt and honey (yogurt made on-site). This is wonderful yogurt, but DON'T EXPECT DANNON or YOPLAIT. It is sour and a bit grainy and wonderful. The honey pairs with it beautifully and the provided chopped walnuts give it a bit more texture (though I wasn't as fond of the nuts).
