Koi SoHo's culinary offerings are expanding today, Friday May 10 at Trump SoHo - just in time to treat your momma this weekend. Bar D’Eau, the outdoor pool deck and lounge, will be open to the public from 11 a.m. - 10 p.m. and, for the first time, will feature new food and drink offerings from the restaurant, like a summer-friendly Spiked Lemonade to sip by the pool as you people watch the beautiful guests.
Get your late-night pizza fix at One Twenty-Two, the newest Italian hotspot to hit the East Village, opening Saturday, May 11. At the press preview, I enjoyed creative crostinis, hearty meatballs and thin crust pizzas in their almost-hidden outdoor courtyard. If you love slices from South Brooklyn Pizza, this will be right up your alley, as One Twenty-Two is connected by the same kitchen (and oven)!
Still need plans to treat mom this weekend? Make reservations for Mother’s Day Brunch at ilili with some lovely perks for moms only and a special Apricot Almond Cake created by Chef Philippe Massoud that honors how his mom encouraged him to bake. Moms will receive a complimentary St-Germain Champagne cocktail and an herb plant to take home. The a la carte brunch menu will be served, plus specials like Hommus and Ramps and Soft Shell Crab with harissa carrot purée and avocado semolina crust.

Enjoy this beautiful spring weekend and Happy Mother’s Day to all of the grandmothers, aunts and moms out there! xo
