Five Philadelphia Dining Deals for Father’s Day

Dad will love the burger and bourbon special at Village Whiskey
If the dad in your life is like so many others we know, he has a soft spot for hearty meat and strong brown liquor. For Father’s Day (Sunday, June 17), five Philly restaurants are offering deals that make it easy to give pops what he craves and enjoy yourself at the same time.

Bistro St. Tropez
At this bistro overlooking the Schuylkill, chef Patrice Rames is giving all dads an entire steak for free. The 14-oz. Black Angus rib-eye is fire-grilled and served under a bordelaise sauce with sautéed green beans, mushrooms and whipped potatoes. The deal is available during Saturday dinner (5:30-10:30 PM) or Sunday brunch (11 AM-3 PM) and is good as long as there are two or more in your party (215-569-9269).

Gypsy Saloon
The special $35 prix fixe steakhouse menu at this eclectic and colorful tavern lets everyone choose from a variety of options including a blue-cheese wedge salad, a 14-oz. prime rib and a twice-baked potato. The à la carte menu will also be available (4-9 PM; 610-828-8494).

Dad will feel special dining beneath the grand, lofted ceilings of this Old City steakhouse, where you’ll find a 12-oz. prime rib dinner on offer for $19.95. The meat is accompanied by a giant, one-lb. baked potato and root vegetables, and after dinner, the man of the house will be presented with a complimentary glass of bourbon and a cigar (4-10 PM; 215-964-6262).

Sam Jacobson is firing up the grill at his Lansdowne BYO, offering a $55 three-course meal with a trio of options. After antipasto of charcuterie, cheese, roasted veggies and mixed greens, choose from a fire-licked veal chop, aged NY strip or whole lobster with corn on the cob, served with family-style truffled mashed potatoes and braised greens. Finish out the decadence with fried banana beignets for dessert (1-9 PM; 484-461-2867).

Village Whiskey
Iron Chef Jose Garces is himself a father of two, and to celebrate is offering a dad’s day deal at both the Rittenhouse and Atlantic City locations of Village Whiskey. A cool $20 brings pop the vaunted house burger along with a pour of the signature Jose Garces Four Roses Single Barrel Bourbon. Add-ons (a fried egg or foie gras atop the patty, perhaps?) are available, as is the rest of the à la carte menu (Philadelphia: 215-665-1088; Atlantic City: 855-348-0500).
