We’ve heard of worse excuses to binge on food and drink in Shanghai. Here are five festive father’s day feasts to repay pops for all the gray hairs you caused him over the years.
Morton’s: Is your dad a ‘prime rib papa?’ If so, take him to Morton’s cooking class, where they’ll teach you how make mini-cheeseburgers, chocolate cake, and other things that’ll require him to reach for the Lipitor. Wash it all down with cocktails you’ve mixed yourselves. Reservations required so call (0)21-6075-8888.
218RMB for two // 3-4:30pm // Morton’s the Steakhouse // IFC Pudong, 4/F, 8 Shiji Da Dao, near Lujiazui Huan Lu (世纪大道8号, 国金中心IFC商场4楼, 近陆家嘴环路).
Yi Cafe: Yi Cafe gives you an opportunity to make your old man proud by taking him to their Super Daddy Brunch, where you can design him a tie. Pops will also receive a plaque in honor of his kickassness. Eats entail all the Yi Cafe classics in brunch form, and refreshments include bottomless soft drinks, chilled juice, selected beer and house wines. (0)21-2828-6888.
488RMB // 11:30am-3pm // Yi Cafe // Pudong Shangri-La, 2/F, Tower 2, 33 Fucheng Lu, near Lujiazui Huan Lu (富城路33号, 浦东香格里拉大酒店2号楼2楼, 近陆家嘴环路).
Moon’s Steak House: Screw those dime a dozen complimentary appetizer and drink deals. On June 14, order two main courses (one for you and dad), and receive a free half Boston lobster!
5-11pm // Moon’s Steak House // Swissotel Grand, 1 Yuyuan Lu, near Changde Lu
(上海宏安瑞士大酒店, 愚园路1号, 近常德路).
Capo: Nothing more appropriate than taking the ‘capo’ of your family to Capo, where they’re offering a 4-course family sharing menu. Treat big papa to Chef Enzo’s signature steak tartare with Scorzone truffles, salumi, and fresh scallops and tuna from the Crudo Bar. The primi course is hand-crafted Scialatielli with imported clams and an organic egg ravioli, and the main entails a hearty lamb shoulder crusted with pistachio. Top it all off with a sweet dolce misto, and prosecco, which is free flow for the man of the house!
488RMB (except if you’re under 6) // 5:30pm-midnight // Capo // Yifeng Galleria,
5/F, 99 Beijing Dong Lu, near Yuanmingyuan Lu, Entrance lifts via Driveway from
Yuanmingyuan Lu (北京东路99号5楼, 近圆明园路).
