Famously tough to buy for, it’s time to change up the classic Father’s Day gift combo of scorched almonds/socks/lotto ticket and treat him to a day he’ll remember. Have a meal out with the man of the hour with some great options around Auckland to treat the big guy to below:
Ribs, Bibs and Beers with Dad at Dr Rudi’s
What would the old fella enjoy more than some ribs, bibs and beers! Pop down to Dr Rudi’s where they’ll be serving up half a rack of ribs, fries, slaw and a pint of their very own Dr’s Brew, brewed on-site and frosty cold for just $55 per person. They’ll even throw in a Dr Rudi’s bib so he can keep his pristine Hawaiian shirt intact. Only available this Sunday, 4 September for lunch and dinner. Bookings essential and available here.
Tackle a Tomahawk with Dad at Saint Alice
Dine with Dad this Father’s Day at the best view in the viaduct, Saint Alice, where for one day only they’re bringing back some classics including the famous 1kg Tomahawk Ribeye. Of course, he’ll need to be well-watered, so on top of the very special a la carte menu they’ll have some crafty local brews and cocktails Dad will be sure to love. Bookings essential here and due to limited stock, pre- order of the Tomahawk Ribeye is required.
Dinner at Lone Star like the good ol’ days
Where better to take dad for dinner on Father’s Day than Lone Star, the classic homegrown restaurant where your own childhood memories were created with him. Get him tucking into the classic Redneck Ribs, Dixie Chicken or maybe he’s more of a Lassoo of Hog type of guy, with oven-roasted pork loin, prune, carrot and seeded mustard stuffing, crackling, topped with fresh apple and ginger sauce, buffalo chips and Lone Star slaw. Find your nearest Lone Star here.
Jervois Steak House
Most Dads know their steak – but there’s steak, and then there’s Jervois Steak House, home to unparalleled, premium cuts of lamb and beef, prepared to perfection. As a connoisseur of carnivore offerings, Dad will savour the quality beef, which is carefully selected from the highest pedigree and defined by breed and feed. Complimented with the freshest produce and a cracking wine list, treat dad to the very best at this iconic Auckland restaurant. www.jervoissteakhouse.co.nz
