Finally, it’s dad’s special day, a time to tell him or the father figures in your life how much they mean to you by helping the gents take a load off and enjoy some Zen moments and good eats.
So step away from the grill, dad. We got this.
Dubrovnik Restaurant in New Rochelle – featuring Croatian cuisine, including meat roasts, grilled fish and a variety of other flavors – is now open for outdoor dining. It has two terraces, the upper patio and the “Djardin” terrace (Croatian for garden), located directly next to the restaurant’s garden. The Father’s Day menu includes a raw bar option, octopus salad, beet salad with goat cheese, filet of branzino, lamb under the “bell,” filet mignon and more. For reservations, call 914-637-3777.
For anyone looking to dine at home, orders placed by today for pickup or delivery (within an 8-mile radius) will receive 10% off.
Those looking for more than a meal for dad might consider treating their fathers to a night at the new Abbey Inn & Spa in Peekskill, which remains open. For reservations, call 914-736-1200 or visit theabbeyinn.com.
Speaking of spas, the Delamar Hotels, which include the Delamar Greenwich Harbor and the Delamar Southport, are offering spa gift certificates, products from Biologique Recherche and Valmont – two brands that are staples of the Delamar spas – and Delamar Day At-Home gift boxes, all for dad. Each At-Home package contains a Delamar robe, slippers and journal, Tea Forté tea, truffles, a scented candle and Bulgari Vert bath products to get dad in relaxation mode. For curbside pickup of the $139 package, call Delamar Greenwich Harbor at 203-661-9800 or the Delamar Southport at 203-259-2800. For more, visit delamar.com.
Meanwhile, not every holiday is about getting. Most often, we get by giving. Abbott House in Irvington, which supports some 2,800 children in foster care, unaccompanied immigrant minors, developmentally disabled adults and struggling families in the metro area, is halfway to its goal of $5,000. You can help the nonprofit reach that goal by planting a digital flower in its Garden of Hope in memory of your father or father figure. For more, visit abbotthouse.net.
Last but certainly not least, enjoy WAG Wellness guru Giovanni Roselli’s touching tribute to his own father, Vincenzo, an Italian immigrant who has lived the American dream.
Thanks, Gio, for contributing this loving salute to our June-July “Visionary Journeys” issue, available at wagmag.com. And to all the dads and father figures out there, Happy Father’s Day.
