Mother’s Day at Y2C2: Though she won’t admit it, your mom doesn’t really want another mother-son/daughter photo framed with popsicle sticks and beach glass for Mother’s Day. What she’d really enjoy is some juicy goose liver with marbled beef, stir-fried scallops, tiger grouper, and other delicious fare at Y2C2 on May 11.

Mother’s Day at House of Roosevelt: What’s that you say, American expats? Goose liver at Y2C2 doesn’t remind you enough of home? Never fear, because on May 12, House of Roosevelt puts on a four-course dinner featuring an appetizer trio followed by Boston clam chowder, beef or halibut for the main course, and New York-style cheesecake for dessert.
