Four Picks for Father's Day in Miami
The Restaurant at The Setai is hosting an $85 jazz brunch for dads with noodles and dim sum to order, spicy Thai chicken wings and barbecued ribs, Singaporean fried chicken and other Asian-inspired dishes. Endless Taittinger and Bloody Marys. 2001 Collins Ave.; 305-520-6400.
Essensia at The Palms Hotel is adding lots of meat to its brunch with a fajita bar and an outdoor grill. Best of all it's $39 per person and $19 for kids under 12. Drinks are not included but mojito and bloody mary pitchers go for $12. 3025 Collins Ave.; 305-908-5458.
For the more laid-back, not-into-brunch fathers, Pinecrest Gardens is cooking up burgers, hot dogs, ribs, corn on the cob and more for Dad's Brew and Bar-B-Q from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.. It's nothing fancy, just a day of food and music out in the garden. Cost is $25 adults and $10 children 5-10. To reserve, call 305-669-6990.
And, finally, if your father would rather do the cooking, chef Gonzalo Rivera at La Marea at The Tides will teach fathers how to grill the perfect burger. Starting at 3 p.m., the two-hour class ends with a four-course burger menu and a cigar. As an added bonus, dad gets two hours of alone time away from home. Cost is $65. Seating is limited. Call 305-604-5070 to reserve.
