Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 17 — have you made plans yet? You could, for example, go to Mida (782 Tremont St., South End, Boston), where the usual Spaghetti Sunday will be in effect ($20/person), with special swag bags available for dads. While you’re there, wish chef and owner Douglass Williams congratulations as it’s also the night that his episode of Iron Chef America airs.
Prefer your spaghetti with a side of Sinatra? Sinatra Sundays at Capo (443 W. Broadway, South Boston) are a good pick for Father’s Day or any Sunday — eat pasta and watch the show down in the Supper Club. Or go the Sinatra brunch route instead, hitting up Lucky’s Lounge (355 Congress St., Fort Point, Boston) between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Or perhaps head to Asta (47 Massachusetts Ave., Back Bay, Boston) to see what happens when Asta collaborates with Tim Maslow’s forthcoming Whaling in Oklahoma (4 p.m. to 9 p.m., reservations recommended).
Or check out Sumiao Hunan Kitchen (270 Third St., Kendall Square, Cambridge), which is merging its Father’s Day celebration with the Dragon Boat Festival and serving $2 sticky rice dumplings and free ribs (with purchase of a menu item).
Specific events and deals aside, here’s a collection of maps, guides, and food crawls to inspire some celebratory dining you can share with your dad.
