Love & Salt Manhattan Beach

Love & Salt is a Manhattan Beach staple that encourages a sense of community and family. The Italian menu has everything from pasta to wood-fired pizzas, and you can expect to see some Mother’s Day-inspired dishes during the holiday. They have a large patio out front that is great for watching the sunset, but their contemporary interior and open-kitchen design make for a great scene while sipping on a glass of red wine.

If you can’t take your mom on a tropical trip to Mexico, take her to Esperanza instead! From the craft margaritas to the sleek, monochromatic interior, Esperanza is a transportive restaurant that is sure to leave your mama speechless. Their menu is huge, but some of our favorite dishes include their various crudos, short-rib taquitos and crispy tacos. Since it’s only a few blocks from the beach, you might even catch a nice sea breeze while sipping on your mezcal margarita.

If your mom likes to keep things simple but delicious, take her to Little Sister at The Point in El Segundo. Little Sister serves Southeast Asian cuisine that features a European twist that is innovative and constantly evolving. The restaurant itself has a casual yet cool vibe with industrial accents and murals across the walls. Though the menu changes frequently, the fresh shrimp and pork spring rolls are must-trys.
