Breathtaking view: Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa
Unlike moms, dads have it bad. Year after year, they keep getting the same gift over and over again on what is supposed to be their special day. There are only so many ugly ties a man can take. This year, it's time to realize that mom isn't the only parent who enjoys being pampered.
Men are no longer the grunting, brooding, flannel-clad apes of yesteryear. Today's dads come in all shapes and sizes, even the metrosexual variety, and as such, won't get much use out of that ugly tie, a drill bit set, or a cheap shaving kit. Metrosexual dads enjoy spa treatments and brunch, just like any other civilized person.
In honor of our forgotten fathers, we have put together the top three places to take papa this Father's Day where sweat, snot, and spit are not welcome -- unless you're in the steam room.
Dad can go play a round while you continue tossing back mimosas. It's win-win.
3. Galuppi's Restaurant & Piano Bar (Pompano)
The old school elegance of Galuppi's gives dad the chance to pretend he's Don Draper and you are all his minions, eager to serve him hand and foot if just for the chance that he'll bestow a smirk on you. Of course this isn't true, but on Father's Day, you pretend it is.
Galuppi's offers two delicious opportunities to cater to dad's taste for elegance and medium-rare ribeye steaks. One is brunch ($29.95), which runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and offers a carving station featuring prime rib and honey ham, crab claws, oysters, shrimp, an omelet station, a belgian waffle station, and other assorted breakfast meats, pastries, breads, and desserts. Galuppi's prime rib is particularly noteworthy.
Or, the whole fam can arrange for a private room and partake of the special Father's Day dinner menu. In addition to traditional menu items, special Father's Day dishes have been added, including coffee-rubbed New York strip and Chilean sea bass. Dinner service begins at 4:30 p.m.
"We have spectacular views and it's a great atmosphere for dads to enjoy," says manager, Jennifer.
