Our dads have supported us, shaped our lives and made us the people we are today. From what we value to what makes us laugh, we take a piece of them everywhere we go. This Father’s Day, spend some quality time with the pop who taught you how to ride a bike and catch a fish by treating him to a delicious meal he won’t forget.
The Lake House, Bay Shore
Change up the scenery this holiday weekend and dine with dad on a deck overlooking the Great South Bay. Pops will love pulling up in his boat to enjoy some tasty custom-made burgers, tender lobster rolls and fried oysters. There is plenty of room by the fire pit to grab a nice brewski and unwind from that hectic week at work. Not to mention, it is the quintessential setting to catch the sun kiss the shore goodnight as explosions of color slowly fade into the distance. Go.
Jewel Restaurant, Melville
With a warm curbside appeal, Jewel sparkles under the moonlight. Tom Schaudel’s upscale Melville restaurant is serving up two distinctive dinner specials from June 17 to June 19. A complimentary glass of premium scotch whiskey accompanies marinated skirt steak, grilled veal chops, roasted duck or miso Chilean sea bass (just to name a few). The colorful hanging light pendants and white leather chairs add a contemporary vibe that makes for an entertaining social dining experience. Go.
Garden City Hotel, Garden City
Get your morning off to the right start with smoked salmon, steak and eggs, bacon infused vodka and bottomless mimosas in a sleek, chic space at the heart of Garden City. Cloud 9 exotics will be on the premise for vehicle viewings, sporting Aston Martin’s McClarens and Porsche’s. Go.
Pentimento, Stony Brook
Dig into some authentic Italian food in the historic town of Stony Brook. You can wine and dine under the stars with a constant cycle of courses that immediately arrive sizzling from the oven. The fried calamari and fried zucchini chips are appetizers you certainly don’t want to pass up, served in a delectable marinara sauce. The restaurant is sure to accommodate for any allergies that restrict certain ingredients, and also offers veggie noodles and gluten free pasta options. Go.
