Motherhood is the most precious gift in the world for both mothers and children. Though we don’t acknowledge our mothers enough, the universe dedicates an entire day to them on Mother’s Day. But, yes, we know that isn’t enough to appreciate their sacrifices and contributions to the family and society.
This year, the international theme for Mother’s Day is “Acknowledging the idea of motherhood.” The idea of motherhood embraces selflessness, confidence, love, and the heart of a mother. Carmel Limos New York City salutes all the brave and hardworking mothers who give it all daily to survive in the city of dreams.
At Carmel Limos, many mothers work with us and make a difference each day. On Mother’s Day, New York City will host many events, shows, and venues to celebrate the heroes of the real world. We’ve curated a list for you in this blog. But before diving in, let’s understand the History of Mother’s Day.
How it Started
International Mother’s Day celebrations go back to Anna Jarvis, the lady who commemorated the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day to fulfill her mother’s wish of celebrating mothers. After her mother’s demise, Anna held a memorial in West Virginia at St. Andrew’s Methodist Church.
Jarvis’s touching gesture caught the attention of people around her, who slowly adopted the custom of honoring mothers. As a result, Mother’s Day was gradually recognized as a global celebration that saw the participation of many students, youngsters, and even older people.
The idea was to acknowledge the love and contributions of mothers to their children and families. The sacred bond between mothers and children is the highlight of celebrating this day.

Dining in the Dark
This unique dining experience at the Leuca Restaurant is not just for those dating but for mommy-kiddo duos too. If the venue isn’t surprising enough, the blindfolded theme sure is. Right from selecting the food from the menu to finishing with mouthwatering dessert, the diners are blindfolded.
The idea is to let the flavors and the experience seep into all the senses without seeing anything. ‘Mystery’ is the name of the game where the tasting journey guides you through the taste of the cuisine. You can choose meat, seafood, or vegan offerings for starters, mains, and desserts. A typical menu looks like the following:
Starter: A rich fusion of flavors immersed into meaty treats that will catch your senses by surprise.
Main: An ideal combination of earthy and meaty ingredients to make mains like Antipasti, Lumache, and Bavette Steak Vesuvius.
Dessert: An eclectic mix of pure Sicilian flavors to culminate in delights like Sicilian Pistachio Cake, Strawberry-Rhubarb Cheesecake and Lambrusco Sorbet, Gelato Del Giorno, and Affogato.
Starter: Smokey and strong flavors are served with a creamy touch in dishes like Black Tonnarelli (Ruby Shrimp and Local Calamari).
Main: A hearty meal that’s an Italian masterpiece to wow your senses that may include Grilled Octopus (‘Nduja, Salsa Giallo) or Bucatini Calabrese (Calabrian Chili, Manila Clams, and Oreganata).
Dessert: A creamy sweet delight topped with a perfect hint of fruitiness like the Gelato E Sorbetto Del Giorno.
Starter: A veggie-only dish that is wholesome and delicious, like Casarecce Alla Norma (Sicilian Eggplant Sugo) or Grilled Asparagus (Smoky Trapanese, Guanciale, and Egg Mimosa).
Main: Tongue-tickling mains like Warm Stuffed Marinated Olives or Sheep’s Milk Ricotta with hot honey & garlic and grilled bread.
Dessert: Fresh ingredients with a zesty combination of fruits or hearty ice cream like Strawberry-Rhubarb Cheesecake with Lambrusco Sorbet, or try the Sicilian Pistachio Cake.
The dining experience lasts 90 minutes from 6 pm to 9.30 pm, where award-winning chefs specially curate the secret menu, including South Italian flavors.
