The Latest


Give Dad the Gift of Food

Restaurants are rolling out the proverbial red carpet with steak and burger specials galore this Father’s Day for dine-in or carry-out.

Whether you celebrate the most important men in your life all weekend or make a huge hurrah on Sunday, June 21, there is something indulgent to be found in Southwest Florida for every culinary interest and budget.

 

WHO DOESN’T LOVE FREE STUFF?

The innovative Hyde N Chic is a must-stop in Naples for gourmands, and chef Andy Hyde is the definition of a warm and welcoming host. What’s more, he’s offering a complimentary glass of bubbles for fathers during both Sunday brunch and dinner service.

At Barbatella, a lovely al fresco option with its beautiful shaded patio on Third Street South, all dads will receive a zeppoli on the house with the purchase of an entree.

 

GOOD THINGS DO COME IN SMALL PACKAGES

Prefer to give a gift—or email one if your loved ones are still following strict social distancing? If you log onto Shula’s Steak House, you can buy gift cards and for every $50 spent, you get a $10 voucher.

 

SPECIALS FOR A SPECIAL SOMEONE

Harvest & Wisdom, which added extensive outdoor seating when it reopened in May, has a weekend-long (June 17-20) Burger & Beer Father’s Day offering for $20 for both lunch and dinner. The Bonita Springs temple of garden-to-table cuisine is offering a choice of patties: a grass-fed, brisket-short rib blend along with a house-made vegan option. 

Another All-American meal for $20 can be found at The Local in Naples: chef Jeff Mitchell is serving up a tangy cowboy-rubbed beef brisket with baked beans, potato salad and chips (FYI, the restaurant also recently began selling $50 four-course dinners for two).

 

DINE-IN (AT HOME) FOR THE WIN

With locations throughout Southwest Florida, The Fresh Market has perfected the click and order model for pre-cooked holiday meals. This time around, you have to hit submit by June 18 for the four-person, $50 feast (choice of salmon or NY strip, alongside veggie kabobs, baked potatoes, broccoli slaw and chocolate cake), with pickup anytime between June 19 and 21.

For something more exotic, Dorona is preparing a five-meat “Carnivoro” platter with dry-aged beef, wagyu beef, venison, lamb and elk (sides included) that you can order up to Saturday (they’re closed Sunday) for one, two or four people.

Last, but not least, The Wine Store can deliver bottles of wine to your doorstep on orders of $75 and more, and if you use the code 15OFF, you’ll get a 15 percent discount on their incredible selection of vintages from independent vineyards.
