I had a truly memorable Mother’s Day this year! My husband and son took me to the New York Botanical Gardens (NYBG) for the annual Mother’s Day Garden Party. If you’re looking for a unique, peaceful and inspiring way to spend time with your mother, try this event next year for Mother’s Day!
I absolutely love NYBG! The gardens are spacious, the grounds are beautifully maintained and there are many varieties of plants and flowers. There is a children’s garden with plenty of activities to keep the kiddos occupied while you take in the views.
International culture can be found anywhere. Even at the NY Botanical Gardens! Enter in Kimchi Taco. Kimchi Taco serves up traditional Mexican dishes with a Korean BBQ slant and boy is it good.
My favorite and, in my opinion, the most unique dish on the menu, was the Spicy Korean Rice Gnocchi. The dish had the perfect chewy texture expected of gnocchi with a crunchy outer shell.
There were several other food trucks: Gorilla Cheese NYC, Coolhaus, for gourmet ice cream sandwiches, and a pizza truck. In addition to the food and flowers, there was live music, activity rentals to enjoy with the kids (kites, croquet, and hoola-hoops) and live theatrical performancs. Lastly, if you used Mastercard to pay for your ticket, you receive a ticket for free entrance back to the gardens during the month of May. The New York Botanical Gardens definitely knows how to treat the mothers! Can’t wait to return!
