Dining Destinations for Dear Old Dad

You treated Mom to a meal out on her special day. (You did, didn’t you?) Now it’s time to do the same for Dad on his. (Just so you don’t blow it, Father’s Day is Sunday, June 21.) Here’s a list of local restaurants that will help you celebrate. . .

At Tanzy (301 Plaza Real, 561/922-6699) next to Boca’s high-tech iPic Theater they’re offering Dad a beer ‘n’ burger deal. For $19 he can chow down on the restaurant’s Boca Burger, 10 ounces of Angus beef, wood-grilled and topped with applewood-smoked bacon, smoked gouda, tomato and arugula on toasted rosemary focaccia. Also included is a flight of four beers, just in case Dad can’t make up his mind.

Another beer sampler is on the Father’s Day menu at Hudson at Waterway East(900 E. Atlantic Ave., 561/303-1343). The view-rich Delray eatery will be pouring a flight of four different brewskis for $5, plus an array of half-priced drink specials from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Dad can also check out the new menu from recently arrived chef (and Hell’s Kitchen winner) Paul Niedermann.

A recent arrival in Palm Beach Gardens is The Cooper (4610 PGA Blvd., 561/622-0032), an artfully rustic farm-to-table restaurant. Bring Dad in for a meal on Father’s Day and he’ll get a $25 food voucher to use on a return visit. That way if he didn’t get to try The Cooper’s zatar-rubbed Faroe Island salmon, 16 oz. Delmonico steak or East Coast seafood cioppino the first go-round, he’ll get the chance on the rebound.

If Dad’s a serious Brew Dude, take him to one of the coolest joints in South Florida. That would be Sybarite Pig (20642 State Road 7, 561/883-3200), Daniel Naumko’s edgy little spot in the wilds of West Boca. From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. he’ll be dishing up a $27 prix fixe meal of Southern fried chicken with Hellswine gravy, biscuits, smoked collard greens, blackberry cobbler and some special craft beers.

On the other hand, if Dad’s a more dress-up kinda guy, there’s always Cafe Boulud (301 Australian Ave., 561/655-6060) at the Brazilian Court Hotel in Palm Beach. Chef Rick Mace is offering a three-course brunch for $36 per person from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. On the “Exploration of Florida BBQ” menu are locally raised grilled meats with house-made papaya barbecue sauce. There’s also an array of a la carte specials, and the restaurant will be serving its regular menu for dinner.
