Father's Day NYC: Where to eat with dad

Father's Day is Sunday, June 17.

It's time to make reservations for a red meat-heavy meal, strong drink and festive day with dad. (Whether he's the chef or the busboy in the family, he'll appreciate not having to spend any time in the kitchen.)

Check out our recommendations for the top spots to visit with pop.

If there's any time to celebrate the rounded, softer physique men acquire as they settle into middle age, it's Father Day. Clinton Hall is offering a burger and craft beer combo called the "Dad Bod Burger deal" for the day. A classic All-American burger comes with the brewpub's new Gigawatt IPA, and it all costs only $12. (Multiple locations, clintonhallny.com)

For Father's Day, Amanda Cohen's vegetable-centric restaurant is serving a special $30 brunch that comes with a pastry of your choice, any item off Dirt Candy's breakfast or lunch menus (such as the smoked beet sandwich with dill pesto and horseradish pictured), coffee or tea and a hard drink. Pastry options include red pepper fritters, tomato biscuits with green tomato jam and carrot cake with carrot jelly. If you're ordering a cocktail, consider two different twists on a traditional Bloody Mary: the Jealous Mary is made with green tomato juice, the Bloody Carrie with grilled carrot juice and mezcal.

Chef Burke's new NoMad restaurant and bar launches its brunch menu on Father's Day. Diners can order three courses off a $42 pre-fixe menu or whatever they like a la carte. If you're going the pre-fixe route, we recommend the clam bake (pictured) for your main course, which arrives at your table in a paint can. And if you can get Dad up early enough, he could be one of 25 fathers to score a custom-painted can/makeshift beer cooler designed by artist Andrea Acevedo (a.k.a. Butterflymush).
