We’ve celebrated the wonderful Mothers in our lives, and now it’s the gentlemen’s turn! We don’t have a specific Father’s Day family tradition in our home, but the team and I put together a list of our favorite restaurants to celebrate dad from years past--the biggest hits, of course! Our dads are all very different people, so we’ve got fathers of all types covered in our round up of our favorite spots to celebrate!

Jenny:
Smoque
My dad is a huge barbecue fan, so Smoque is our Father’s Day go-to. We love the brisket and pulled pork, plus they offer catering and delivery, which we sometimes do so we can eat in our backyard. A casual, yet delicious option for sure!

Michelle:
Bub City, Al’s Beef
Give my dad all the meat! Whether it’s barbecue or Italian Beef, we celebrate my dad with lots of meat. Bub City is a great sit-down, super casual option and Al’s Beef is fun to grab take out and set up a picnic by the beach.

Millie:
Half Shell
If the dad in your life loves seafood as much as my John, then Half Shell is the place to go! We love to get a dozen oysters and relax in the outdoor patio. After dinner, we wander to Lincoln Park for a beautiful walk along the path.

Mike:
Athenian Room,  Butcher and Burger
My dad is equally satisfied with the Greek Chicken from Athenian room or a burger from Butcher and Burger because both options are equally delicious. Make a night out of it and head to the bar adjoining Athenian Room (Glascott’s) for an after-dinner nightcap!
