Here’s to You, Dad
Father's Day is all about dad. But let's get real — it's usually about dad cooking for himself for self-preservation. So what's the urban solution? The Shops at Columbus Circle has all the ingrediants for a perfect Father's Day.
The way to any man’s heart is through food and what guy doesn’t love a good steak? Treat dad to a decadent dinner at the Porter House Bar and Grill, which is a modern update on a classic 19th century chophouse. Chef Michael Lomonaco creates memorable dishes like Colorado lamb T-bones finished with rosemary and extra virgin olive oil or — of course — a porterhouse from the finest prime dry aged beef. For a real indulgence, don’t miss the Wagyu beef, famous for its rich flavor and tenderness. If your father’s more of a laid-back lunch guy, opt for the Park View 3-Course Lunch, with options like a petit filet mignon with Yukon mashed potatoes and a cabernet sauce. Dad definitely deserves an indulgent helping of molten chocolate cake for dessert.
No meal is complete without a drink to cap it off. Head next door to Chef Lomonaco’s Center Bar, where you can enjoy stunning views overlooking the city and the treetops of Central Park. Choose a wine from the curated 80-bottle list or toast dad by asking master bartender James Moreland to whip up a signature cocktail like the Maxim, made with Ketel One vodka and wasabi-caviar stuffed olives.
If you’re looking to get more hands-on and make a meal to enjoy together, Williams-Sonoma offers a Fourth of July Favorites class on Father’s Day itself. You can learn to cook dishes like juicy ribs. And, if you still need to get dad the perfect gift, pick up the Philips Viva Airfryer, so he can whip up everything from wings to fries without the hassle — or the calories — of oil.
For a relaxing end to the perfect day, stop in at Equinox for a rejuvenating massage. The Spa at Equinox is offering in honor of Father’s Day for Sports and Equissage massages. So you can join dad on the big day or give him a gift card to use at his convenience.
There’s no better way to show your dad how much you appreciate him this day — and every day.
