A Lovely Alternative For Mother's Day Brunch


If you would prefer a served, sit-down brunch rather than a large buffet brunch, this event at the Peabody Essex Museum might be just the place for you.  Please note that the seatings are filling up very rapidly here, that you do not need to purchase admission to come to the brunch, and that everyone who dines at this event will receive a coupon for a discount in the gift shop at PEM.
