Father’s Day NYC
It’s time to thank the man in your life for all the fatherly advice and guidance. I find most dads are easy to please. For my dad, delicious food and atmosphere seems to do the trick. Treat dad to a fun filled weekend full of libations and gourmet food.
Davio’s (447 Lexington Avenue) Life is too short to pass on mouthwatering pastas at Davio’s this weekend. New to the menu is a five course pasta tasting menu for $55. Dad can indulge in lemon ravioli, hand rolled potato gnocchi, lobster ravioli, tagliatelle bolognese and braised veal agnolotti. The pasta is “off the charts” fresh and flavorful. Join them for happy hour Monday to Friday at the bar from 2:30 – 7:00 p.m. for complimentary hors d’oeuvres, seasonal cocktail specials and half priced wines. If you’re heading to the theater, stop by from 5-7 p.m. for a three course prix-fixe menu for $38. Check their website for additional savings like half priced wine bottles and prime rib nights.
New York Yankee Steakhouse (7 West 51st Street) Want four free tickets to a future Yankee game? Dine at NYY Steak on Sunday and receive a voucher for four free tickets if you spend $200. Not just a kitschy place to be, this steakhouse is the real deal with tender juicy steaks and top notch seafood. The ahi tuna tartare resting on a bed of avocado is one of my favorites. Monday through Friday and all day Sunday park yourself at the bar for discounted drinks and appetizers. Leave room for dessert and enjoy a huge slice of New York style cheesecake.
NYC Father’s Day Cruise (Pier 40, West Street) Hornblower Cruises offers you a chance to treat dad to a two hour cruise for $90 that includes unlimited mimosas and beer. Sunday at 12:30 p.m. enjoy a bountiful brunch buffet, dessert station and live jazz band. Dad even gets to keep his Hornblower Beer Mug to remember the special day. Grab the family while enjoying delicious food and entertainment served up while cruising around Manhattan past all the iconic NYC landmarks. Take in the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governors Island, the Brooklyn Bridge and, of course, the incredible city skyline with Freedom Tower looming large.
