Dads, grandpas, uncles, in-laws, and father figures of all kinds: The one thing they are have in common is that we love them.
With so many Westchester restaurants reopening with outdoor seating and take-out options, we wanted to help you plan your Father’s Day celebrations with just a small selection of some of the sweet and savory routes you can take to dad’s heart.
900 Fort Hill Rd, Peekskill
The Abbey Inn’s dedicated gourmet restaurant is welcoming guests for outdoor seating by reservation, as well as a special build-your-own Father’s Day Grilling Package. For $170, families get 2 whole cleaned and ready to grill Branzino and 4 eight-ounce burger patties with brioche buns, lettuce, tomato, and pickles.
You can then choose between 2 sixteen-ounce NY strip steaks or rib eyes, 1 sixteen-ounce center cut tenderloin, or 4 braised short ribs; 3 sides like slaw, corn bread, and German potato salad; 2 sauces; and 2 desserts. House-baked pies and bottles of wine are available as $40 add-ons, as well as a truly epic suckling pig Porchetta package for $400. Call to order by June 16 for pickup between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on June 20.
610 Hartsdale Rd, White Plains
Benjamin’s is always a good call for brunch, offering a $27.95 prix fixe option as well as plenty of a la carte selections for takeout only. Brunch is available from noon until 3:30 p.m., but if dad prefers something a little later in the day the full dinner menu is still available as well, including the “steak for two” if dad wants to try tackling that himself….
39 Chestnut Street, Dobbs Ferry
Build your own Father’s Day feast at The Cookery with a meal made fit for dad! With options like tomahawk steak, honey butter cornbread, and their infamous “stickabutta” pie, The Cookery is providing all their classics in-restaurant and ready to go for takeout. Call or fill out the form on their website to preorder takeout by 6 p.m. Friday. Call to make a reservation.
11 Kittle Rd, Chappaqua
One of the county’s favorite low-key event spaces, Crabtree’s Kittle House has just recently reopened for outdoor dining on its lush grounds, with both brunch and dinner menus available. Rather take yours to go? Both brunch and dinner also have carry-out versions!
Multiple Westchester locations
Westchester’s favorite family grocery chain is giving dad four grilling packages for Father’s Day, ranging from $16.99 all the way up to $99.99. Options include Walter’s Hot Dogs with buns and their trademark mustard, kebabs three ways with naan and Mediterranean pasta salad, gourmet brisket burgers with bacon jam, and a full southern-style BBQ package featuring burgers, spareribs, mac & cheese, tossed salad, corn bread, peaches, and ice cream. (Oh, and there are plenty of add-on sides, beer, and desserts!)
721 Main St, New Rochelle
Treat dad to a fabulous Father’s Day at New Rochelle’s Dubrovnik. The a la carte menu, available for outdoor dining on the main and “djardin” terraces, features a raw bar, oysters, the house’s famous octopus salad, cuttlefish risotto, roasted Cornish hen, lamb “under the bell,” and as always filet mignon, among plenty others. Feel like dining at home? Orders placed by Friday, June 19 for either pickup or delivery (within the restaurant’s 8 mile radius) will receive a 10% discount. Call for reservations.
1120N Main St, Port Chester
Spoil dad like you mean it with Eugene’s Father’s Day Gift Boxes! Pre-order a brunch, lunch, or dinner box that will feed 4-6 people, or, if you’re feeling like grilling, they have a Grillers Box that includes everything the family needs to have some great hotdogs and kielbasa with all the sides and fixings. Submit orders by call or email firstname.lastname@example.org as well as through their website by June 18. Prices vary.
In addition to its already delicious take-out menu, Eugene’s is pulling a Chef David DiBari classic and accepting orders for your very own Front Yard Pig Roast. $650 gets you a whole suckling pig, choice of salad, two sides, a carb, and a dessert, plus setup and carving fro an at-home experience. Personal “flasks” and gallon-sized jugs of cocktails — as well as beer — are all available for an extra fee. Call or email to order.
Tarrytown House Estate
49 E Sunnyside Ln, Tarrytown
Chef Dale Talde’s signature modern take on traditional Cantonese is back, and not just for takeout anymore! Beginning Saturday, June 20 you can once again grab a reservation in the scenic patio gardens for sit-down service. The entire seasonal menu is balanced and delicious, but the house special crab fried rice is probably what dad’s got his heart set on, so remember to place one order for the table (and another just for him).
127 West Main St, Tarrytown
The wood-fired pizza and calzones at RiverMarket would be enough to put them on our list for dad, but now that the farm-to-table eatery’s patio is reopened and we can enjoy the team’s full menu with a few of Emilio Ugarte’s Wine and Food Fest-winning cocktails, it’s a shoe-in.
578 Anderson Hill Rd, Purchase
Anything on the menu is sure to please dad, from Chef Fanelli’s inside-out meatballs to the artichoke salad. That said, we feel the Kobe beef ravioli (with caramelized onion, black truffle, and fontina over brown butter sauce) from the dinner menu and brunch’s eggs Benny over Maryland crab cakes (with candied bacon and Hollandaise) merit special note. Also sure to make dad’s eyebrows peak is the “Fat Bastard” burger with bacon, cheese, sautéed mushrooms, caramelized onions, and a Moretti-battered onion ring served with Tuscan fries.
71 Water Grant St, Yonkers
Always a great meal, X2O’s take-out menu currently boasts dad-approved dished like braised short ribs, jumbo shrimp, king salmon, and chilled gazpacho. Sushi, sides, sweets, and selections from the bar’s elegantly crafted wine and spirits menu are also available. Take-out orders also receive a 10% discount!
