‘Happy Father’s Day – omelette you crack Dad yolks all day.’
A father is someone who carries pictures in his wallet, where his money used to be. He is his son’s first hero and his daughter’s first love…he is also the worst joke teller in the world!
As we prepare to celebrate Father’s Day this Sunday, September 5 here are some suggestions on where and how to celebrate, with the special men in your life:
Order a special Dad’s Day meal from Attica.
Melbourne may be enduring lockdown 6.0, but that doesn’t mean you can’t treat Dad with a meal and bottle of wine from Attica in Ripponlea. Ben Shewry has put together two offerings, which can be ordered for pick-up or delivery – there are breakfast, lunch and dinner options, including a special Dads only fruit and nut chocolate bar.
Housemade lasagne from Machiavelli Restaurant.
Have a three-course Father’s Day feast delivered to your door from Machiavelli Restaurant in the heart of Sydney’s CBD. Pre-order and receive a free bottle of Italian red or white wine and delivery, along with starters of antipasto cured meat, rock oysters and main choices of housemade lasagne, linguine pescatore and slow-cooked beef cheeks; finishing with tiramisu for dessert.
Celebrate Dad’s special day with an epic BBQ extravaganza feast from Wolfe & Molone in Bentleigh. Pre-order now and receive slow-cooked beef brisket, hot wings and blue cheese sauce, smashed potato salad, grilled corn, Southern slaw, mac and truffled cheese, chocolate caramel tart and either two beers or ciders. Pimp your pack with a fully loaded chicken chorizo dog on a milk bun!
Treat Dad to lunch at Frogmore Creek Restaurant & Cellar Door.
Surrounded by a sea of vines overlooking the spectacular Coal River Valley, find yourself immersed in Tasmania’s wine country at Frogmore Creek Restaurant & Cellar Door on Richmond Road in Cambridge. Stop in this weekend for lunch on Saturday or Sunday and Dad will receive a complimentary glass of Frogmore Creek Single Block Series Cabernet Franc to celebrate.
Customisable cocktail kits on offer from Bar Clara.
Bar Clara on Little Bourke Street in Melbourne has collaborated with The Gospel Whisky to offer a customisable cocktail kit, which allows Dad to wood age his own Old Fashioned cocktail. Each kit contains the booze, garnishes, tools and video instructions to make two cocktails tailored to individual tastes – order now and Dad can celebrate in style.
Celebrate Dad in style at Balboa Restaurant.
A truly memorable dining experience awaits Dad at Balboa Italian restaurant, perched along Gold Coast Highway in Palm Beach. Modern luxe meets industrial charm at this venue, where hanging chandeliers, overflowing greenery, high ceilings and exposed metal beams set the scene for a Father’s Day lunch or dinner celebration with the whole family, from the a la carte menu.
