Thousands of people take Dad out to eat on Father’s Day, but deciding where to go can definitely be challenging. There are plenty of different types of great eateries in and around the city, but finding one that is perfect for the guy in your life is key. Below you will surely find something that is the perfect combination of food, drink, and atmosphere. All you need to do is make your reservations!
1375 Washington St.
Boston, MA 02118
Most dads love meat, so why not take Dad out for a real treat? Boston Chops has an excellent selection of steaks, including juicy bone-in rib eyes and filet mignon, but it also has a double cut pork chop, 10 ounce bone-in tenderloin and braised short ribs that are sure to tickle any dad’s taste buds. The restaurant is urban and features very high ceilings, and the atmosphere is great. There is also a great wine selection as well as some really innovative cocktails, like the Ignition – made with tequila, jalapeño syrup, Aperol and Burlesque Bitters, dads who like spice and tequila will love this drink.
The Langham, Boston
250 Franklin St.
Boston, MA 02110
If you really want to wow Dad and do something a little bit out of the norm, you should definitely try Café Fleuri, located in The Langham hotel. The restaurant offers contemporary New England cuisine, and is the perfect spot for breakfast, brunch or lunch. The price range is from about $30 to $50 per person, but the reviews speak for themselves. If your dad is a chocolate lover, you might want to head to Café Fleuri on Saturday instead of Sunday, when there is a chocolate bar that many say is simply out of this world!
63 Salem St.
Boston, MA 02113
For a dad who loves seafood, Neptune Oyster is the place to go. The restaurant features a wide selection of fresh fish, including clams, tuna and mussels. Naturally, the eatery is known for its raw bar, which serves up everything from main lobster and blue crab to razor clams and crab claws, but people rave about all of Neptune Oyster’s selections, and any entree is sure to please. Father’s Day falls on a Sunday, when the special here is fish tacos. Keep in mind that the kitchen closes at 9:30 p.m., so an earlier reservation will likely be necessary.
No. 9 Park
9 Park St.
Boston, MA 02108
For the dad with an eclectic palate, you should definitely grab a reservation at No. 9 Park. The eatery features a Prix-Fixe menu that includes items like Duet of Rohan Duck and Colorado Lamb (you are permitted to choose an appetizer, an entree, and a dessert for $76, or you can choose items and pay À la carte). There are some excellent items on the menu, and the restaurant does take reservations via Open Table, so you can reserve the perfect table for dad in minutes.
Top Of The Hub
800 Boylston St.
Boston, MA 02199
Impress Dad with breathtaking views of the city from high atop one of the tallest skyscrapers in the city. Not only are the views of the city from Top of the Hub to die for, but the food is amazing as well. The menu isn’t incredibly versatile, but the cuisine is award-winning and the atmosphere unforgettable. Try to get here before the sunset, enjoy a drink at the bar, and then sit for your meal. The views are just as incredible at night as they are during the day, but both are pretty special.
