words by Lucy Bulling • Travel
LOOKING FOR A LAST MINUTE LUNCH IDEA? TRY ONE OF THESE NEW YORK CITY SPOTS.
For the Dad who loves french
For the fine-dining Dads, Le Coucou is a modern nod to fine European gastronomy. A French nook in the heart of the Big Apple that proves the essence of fine French dining can be found right here. The decor alone is sure to get Dads feeling the love and appreciation.
For the Dads with a sweet-tooth. Take Dad to a high-tea filled with macarons and pastries so beautiful they will have him singing your praises for being clever enough to know exactly what he wanted this Father’s Day (even if it was a last minute idea!).
for the dad who loves japanese
Address: West Village
There are few spots in New York as spacious and quiet as EN. Their interior is vast with super high ceilings. It’s like a traditional Japanese ryokan merged with a New York warehouse. The perfect place to take Dad when he deserves a little zen.
for the dad who loves italian
Address: West Village, SoHo, Madison Avenue
Sant Ambroeus is a little slice of Italy. Perfect for the classic fathers who want good food, good company, and good atmosphere. Delight Dad with lunch in one of their booths, or even a cocktail at the bar.
Address: Greenwich Village
This neighbourhood spot is perfect for a casual breakfast or leisurely lunch. The rustic decor makes you feel like you have taken a trip to the coast or country. Dad may be so comfortable here, he may even forget for a moment he is in the heart of Greenwich.
for the dad who wants to be outside
Address: Flatiron & Downtown
Eataly has all the callings of a fun day out with the family. There is something for everyone here, and the rooftop terrace is a sanctuary away from the bustle of the city. Dad will definitely feel like he’s on holiday.
Address: Pier 25, Hudson River Park
For the seafaring fathers - or the fathers who always wished they were - take them to water with Grand Banks. Jump aboard a 1940s wooden ship, shuck some oysters, and sip plenty of cocktails. All while the sun sets over the New York City Skyline. What more could a father ask for?
Address: Central Park
There are few places as quintessentially New York as The Boathouse at Central Park. The scene of many infamous movie and television moment, Dad is sure to feel like a star when sitting on the dining deck here, looking out at the beautiful lake, glistening with the summer sunshine.
