Celebrate Dad at These Local Restaurants


Father’s Day is a time to shower your dad or other guy in your life with love and gratitude. But let’s be real: The best way to their heart is likely through their stomach!

Most fellas would love to skip the gifts and instead celebrate the occasion with a sumptuous meal out with the kids, spouse and other loved ones. Luckily for everyone, there are scores of mouthwatering restaurants right near your Edgewater apartment that will help you make this Father’s Day the best yet. If you want to do the holiday right this year, consider making reservations at one of these restaurants to score some major points with Dad:


Butcher Bar: A half-mile from your Edgewater apartment, Butcher Bar serves up just what it promises: an impressive spread that will delight any carnivore, from boar ribs to burgers and everything in between. If you’re really feeling adventurous and have some leftover dough from your tax refund, spring for the $300 Trough: This dish requires advanced notice for the cooks, as it includes rotisserie chicken, house-made sausages, the chef’s choice cut of meat, an assortment of ribs, bacon and sides. Whew!


Fuji Mountain Japanese: Sweet, salty and even sour converge at this popular Japanese restaurant, a half-mile from your Edgewater apartment. Fuji Mountain has an impressive sushi menu along with other Japanese favorites that will have you coming back for more long after Father’s Day.


Mama’s Vegetarian: If you’re trying to get Dad into vegetarian, introduce him to Mama’s Vegetarian, six blocks from your Edgewater apartment. This casual Kosher spot specializes in Middle Eastern fare, with a heavy emphasis on vegetarian dishes. Even if the guest of honor is a bit wary of going vegetarian, Mama’s Vegetarian offers up a friendly and familiar feel to make him right at home.
