It’s been a wild year, but somehow it’s almost back to being Mother’s Day again. This year might not be as chaotic and uncertain at last year’s holiday, but with the rising rates of COVID-19 shutting down indoor dining yet again, it also... isn’t that different. Regardless, restaurants and bars across town have, once again, rallied to present some options for both takeout and outdoor dining to celebrate mom. Here are nine places to find such specials. As usual, this map is organized geographically, not by any ranking.

A number of Portland restaurants have resumed onsite service. The level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns. For updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the Oregon Health Authority’s COVID update page. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
