Pamper Your Pops: Top Three Places To Take Metrosexual Dads For Father's Day
Christina Mendenhall How relaxing is this?
2. De La Tierra at Sundy House (Delray)
Situated in the Sundy House hotel, the restaurant offers a relaxing and gorgeous ambience sure to please dad. You can eat indoors, but if the weather is agreeable, we suggest dining al fresco in the foliage-plenty garden area.
On Father's Day, expect some dad-esque additions to the popular Sunday brunch offerings ($68), specifically unlimited house beers. Don't worry females, Sundy House also offers unlimited champagne, mimosas, and bellinis.
Brunch is available from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and reservations are required. Expect breakfast favorites such as eggs benedict, waffles, and bacon, plus shrimp, oysters, smoked salmon, and salad and carving stations.
Added bonus: Barbecue station.

1. 3800 Ocean (West Palm Beach/Singer Island)
The dining room at the Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa features two additional treats for dad. Enjoy the Father's Day brunch ($48) on the waterfront, with one of the most spectacular views in the city. Dine on oysters, shrimp cocktails, eggs benedict, ceviche, tuna tartare, made to order omelets, bacon, sausage, home fries, a craving station featuring prime rib and roasted turkey breast, a dessert station, and more. We were recently invited for brunch, and have to say that the tuna tartare is one of the best in the tricounty area. Make sure to keep dad socially lubricated with unlimited bloody marys, mimosas, and bellinis ($14).

After brunch, take Dad to the Si Spa for some of its signature "gentlemen's therapies" such as the gentlemen's signature facial, the rough Si resurfacing treatment, or the therapeutic deep Si massage, and stay to enjoy the heated relaxation rooms, heated marble beds, steam rooms, and whirlpool, complimentary with any treatment.

Dad will be full of good cheer after eating and drinking to his heart's content and having his muscles kneaded by an expert masseuse. After this kind of Father's Day, you can get away with "gifting" him atrocious neckties for a few more years, before you have to splurge again.
