Maybe it’s the last two years of a global pandemic, but showing our gratitude for the ones that we love is more important than ever. Now, there is nothing wrong with a traditional “You’re the BEST” card or #1 DAD mug, but if you’re looking to take your fathers day game to the next level look no further than our meticulously curated list of stellar experiences around Toronto.
Haute Cuisine Lover
The restaurant, aptly named after celebrity chef Akira Back, is a Toronto hot spot famous for fusion of Japanese and Korean cuisine. The Michelin star chef’s menu and cocktail list are sure to have even the most refined palettes salivating. Think Wagyu Beef Tacos, or the much sought-after Tuna Pizza. The bill may be on the more expensive side, but the ethereal ambiance and flavourful menu make it unquestionably worth the trip.
Does your dad love a great happy hour? If your dad loves a great caesar, get ready to introduce him to the ULTIMATE caesar experience. Hailing originally from Vancouver, the Score on King aims to blow regular caesars out of the water with its mile high caesars. Its signature, The Checkmate Caesar, is stacked tall featuring an entire roasted and fried cornish hen, cheeseburger, hot wings, hot dog, onion rings, mac’n’cheese pulled pork, delicious dessert and a pickle to top it all off.
Treat dad to the Immersive Frida Kahlo Exhibit. Be completely surrounded by her colorful and vibrant works brought to life by stunning projections, music, movement and light. Upon entry you will find a snack stand and mini bar serving beer, wine and bubbly. Enjoy a beverage or snack as you enter into Frida’s breathtaking world.
West Coast Vibes Daddio
Who doesn’t love a Buck-a-Shuck? Every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday at Clandestino Wine Bar you can treat dad (and save some cash) at one dollar Oysters. And if you want to splash out and add a little bubbly to the mix, bottles are only $50!
If dad loves his home coffee ritual, set up a coffee subscription and have freshly roasted, seasonal coffee beans delivered to him on a regular interval. This is a great way to continually try new regions and roast profiles and never have to worry about running out to grab a bag of coffee. Many of the best roasters have subscription programs and ship their beans across the country. Currently we are enjoying the latest from 49th Parallel in Vancouver, who helped pioneer the Canadian speciality coffee scene.
