He taught you how to throw a ball or maybe he gave your first boyfriend the weary eye, and this is the day to show your father how much you appreciate all he’s done for you. What dad doesn’t love a good meal? Make Father’s Day something special by treating him to one of these great meals in Chicago.
If your dad is a “cool dad,” take him to one of the hippest spots in town, Furious Spoon. The rocking ramen spot is offering a special one-day-only bowl of oxtail ramen, featuring miso broth, chashu pork belly, white pepper chicken, poached egg, marinated mushrooms, garlic relish, and oxtail meat. This $20 bowl is only $10 for dads and includes the opportunity to take a family photo to commemorate the day.
Brunch isn’t just for moms. Take your father to Mas for their Latin-inspired mid-day weekend meal. Special ribeye asado tacos with chimichurri, shoestring fries, and queso fresco will be available, as well as the rest of their usual menu. Make reservations by calling the restaurant.
Mercat a la Planxa
Dads may pretend they don’t like selfies, but you should insist on this one. First, take your father to brunch at Mercat a la Planxa and enjoy dishes such as cordero a la planxa and Blackstone benedict with chorizo and truffled hollandaise sauce. Then, take a selfie with your old man, post it with #mercatchicago, and you could win a dinner for two – twice the gift for just one picture! Make your reservation by phoning Mercat.
Unite Urban Grill
Take Dad to enjoy one of Chicago’s best kept secrets: the steaks at Unite Urban Grill. They will be serving huge 22-ounce cowboy steaks all day and sending fathers home with a free bottle of Unite Urban Grill’s signature basting sauce. Call to make reservations.
Go classic at Weber Grill with a steak package your dad can take with him. It includes four 14-ounce ribeye steaks and Weber’s Chicago steak seasoning. The package can also be delivered directly to your father’s home, but we recommend going in to enjoy some of the special Father’s Day dishes, such as grilled pork belly tostadas and dueling ribs. Make reservations on their website.
