The last two years have been a rollercoaster for many people due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Only in the recent months have people experienced some sense of normalcy and now that prefer go out to eat at restaurants, even restaurants are putting their best foot forward to make it a memorable experience. These times have also taught us to care most for our families and relationships. Our parents deserve the best especially after all the years of hard work they have put in to help us grow into better people. While Mother’s Day was celebrated a little over a month ago, this weekend is for dads as we celebrate Father’s Day on June 19.
Restaurants in the city have put together some delicious special menus that are available all day and for brunch. While some of them are innovative, there are others every father will like along with a variety of beers, cocktails and mocktails on offer.
Here is a glimpse of the scrumptious meals that restaurants have planned for fathers this year:
