What does mom really want for Mother's Day? Why, to spend the day with her dear daughter, of course. Make it fun and fulfilling for both of you by spending the day working up an appetite shopping, followed by a delicious, nearby meal at one of these excellent San Francisco restaurants. We got with Allie Pape, the editor at our illustrious sister site Eater SF, to come up with eight shopping and restaurant pairings that will make you look super organized and in the know in mom's eyes. Sigh—we can't help that we still live for her approval.
