For New Yorkers looking to treat mom to a truly memorable Mother’s Day celebration this Sunday, take her to brunch at The Water Club where she and the whole family can enjoy fresh seafood and classic American fare against a scenic backdrop of beautiful, unobstructed East River views. Known as one of the most beloved dining and waterfront destinations, The Water Club is the ideal place to spoil the most beloved woman in your life, and the timing couldn’t be more perfect as earlier this month the restaurant reopened its seasonal rooftop bar, The Crow’s Nest.
