I’m still a little in shock that Sunday is Father’s Day. Let that sink in for a minute – Sunday is Father’s Day. This means that we’re half-way through the month of June and almost half way through 2015.
When looking for plans you’ve probably already realized that the Washington Nationals are out of town this weekend, so taking your dad to the ballpark doesn’t make much sense. Instead, the restaurant scene is a completely viable option that could create a way for your to impress him with your selection.
Here are the deals your dads should take advantage of on Father’s Day in DC:
Is your father one of the many individuals who calls himself a beer connoisseur? Even if he doesn’t routinely refer to himself as an expert, City Tap House might be the perfect place on Sunday. Good beer isn’t the only thing available on Father’s Day. Beginning at 11am, the a la carte brunch menu ranges in prices from $5-26 and includes a Honey Goat Pizza and Strawberry Almond French Toast. If you can’t make it to brunch, dinner is just around the corner. At 5pm, it’s time for 3 different styles of pork ribs for $25 per person. As you’re watching your dad chow down on his chipotle glazed ribs, he’ll also be given a complimentary beer to wash it down.
A 16-ounce monogrammed pilsner glass is the ideal gift to accompany the Belgium French fare at Et Voila!. From 5pm-10pm guests can order standout dishes that include a New York Strip and Marinated Beef Napoleon, ranging in prices from $10-$28.50.
If your father enjoys the taste of rum, there’s a brunch in DC that he can’t miss. Mio Restaurant’s Puerto Rican and Latin cuisine will be available on Father’s Day from 11:30am-2:30pm, and as a takeaway dads will get 4-2 ounce bottles of flavored rum. Ranging from $6-$26, highlights on the menu include a BBQ de Cerdo en Ciabatta (pulled pork sandwich with tamarind BBQ sauce and spicy cole slaw) and the Tostada Francesa de Guineo (banana bread French toast with cream cheese mousse and butter rum sauce).
Not making the trip from Maryland to Washington, DC on Father’s Day? No problem. MET Bethesda will be showcasing two-man hungry specials, which include a Surf and Turf Benedict during brunch and a 42 oz Prime Bone-In Ribeye (with two one-and-a-half pound grilled Maine lobster, served with bacon wrapped scalloped potatoes and Brussels sprout slaw) for $49 during lunch and dinner. Met Bestesda will be open from 11:30am-9pm.
Everyone needs a good custard from time to time. Shake Shack will be offering a free custard to all dads on Father’s Day. This promotion will be available at all locations, excluding Nationals Stadium. Flavor options include vanilla, chocolate and mud pie.
STK DC serves brunch from 11:30am-4 and dinner from 6pm-10pm. On Father’s Day, they’ll be opening up their summer menu and pouring a complimentary No. 3 cocktail to dads, along with giving them a signature STK flask.
From 11am-3pm, you can take your dad for “Burgers and Brews” at Del Frisco’s Grille DC, because what dad doesn’t enjoy that combo? If you’re looking to mix things up you can order crispy paramesan and sea salt or sweet potato fries. You might also be the recipient of the golf bag giveaway, which certainly would make your dad’s day complete. The combo will only cost you $17.50.
Have you been over to Tupelo Honey Cafe yet? A recent addition to Arlington, and we’ve already heard many good things. Treat him to a special porterhouse pork chop or the grilled frenched lamb chop before ordering him the decadent banana pudding. Reservations are highly recommended, you’d hate to not get a seat.
Does your dad enjoy fish? If so, take him to Grillfish this Father’s Day for the Fisherman’s Fest. On Saturday and Sunday, a $25 beer and fish sampler platter will be available ($20 for just the platter). If you want to take things another step up, consider the package for two which features oysters, entrees, champagne, and additional items for $49.
The suckling pig brunch is coming to The Pig this Sunday for $25 per person. Among several starter options, the entree consists of some wonderful Stuffed Roasted Pennsylvania Suckling Pig.
