Now that College students have vacated the premises for the summer break, head to Harvard Square for Father’s Day. Famous for their eclectic international New England cuisine and live music, treat Dad to Beat Brasserie’s incredible Bluegrass Brunch. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Appalachian tunes will fill the restaurant while executive chef Ignacio Lopez serves some of his favorite brunch dishes alongside handcrafted cocktails, beers and American craft wines. Dishes will include pineapple inside down coffeecake, steak frites and eggs, turkey with poached eggs, and short rib eggs benedict. Children can also feel like they are included in the special day with their Flower Children Crunch menu – kiddie grilled cheese and chocolate chip pancakes can only sweeten this deal.
Bistro du Midi
As Bostonians have come to expect now, chef Robert Sisca and his team at Bistro du Midi know just what dads like. Make a reservation here and treat him like a king with a Tomahawk for two special – a mouth-watering 32-ounce prime steak, 40 day wet-aged with sauce au poivre. It’s perfect for two people, or just a hungry father!
Foundry on Elm
For the hipster dad out there, Somerville’s Davis Square is a sure bet. Don’t even worry about ordering at Foundry on Elm as they prepare to serve a “beefed up” buffet for Father’s Day this year. Executive chef Shayne Nunes has a stellar line up of dishes to dive into including dueling carving stations of slow roasted prime rib and mustard roasted ham. Baked French toast, strawberry cream cheese crepes, artisan bacon, and assorted meats and cheeses are among other dishes to enjoy. For those who are not as aggressive with their appetites, a la carte brunch items may also be ordered. Brunch will be served from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and a slow roasted prime rib dinner will be in the spotlight starting at 5 p.m. until supplies last. Brunch is $25 a head and dinner is $20.
Pantry at the Verve
Executive chef Alastair Mclean understands the stresses of being a busy father. That’s why he has decided to treat Fathers who visit his restaurant on Father’s Day with a 10-ounce strip sirloin steak special…for free! Tasty sides like creamy homemade mashed potatoes, crispy fries, and sautéed broccolini are also part of this exceptionally generous offer. Reservations highly recommended.
