Here are a few Father's Day Specials that didn't make it into this week's Noshing Around. Father's Day is Sunday, June 21; reservations are highly recommended.
Barrio Grill (135 S. Sixth Ave.; 629-0191) will have a mesquite-grilled 18-ounce porterhouse topped with Tecate Cholula Vidalia onion rings and a baked potato stuffed with garlic, spinach, cheddar and sour cream ($30), or king crab legs in a citrus bouillon, served with basil infused butter ($32).
Chad's Steakhouse (3001 N. Swan Road; 881-1802) will have a New York strip, three Guaymas shrimp, beans, cheesy bread and ice cream ($19.95).
The Cup Cafe at Hotel Congress (311 E. Congress St.; 622-8848) will have steak and eggs ($12.50) or a cannibal omelet ($10.50) for breakfast; a pastrami burger ($10.50) and prosciutto grinder with Willcox tomatoes ($7.50) for lunch; and a grilled filet and stuffed onion ($24), pan seared trout ($17) or bourbon raspberry barbecue chicken ($18) for dinner.
At Maynards Market and Kitchen (400 N. Toole Ave.; 545-0577) it's a 12-ounce dry-aged Angus beef ribeye wrapped in bacon and a twice-baked potato, salad and a 22-ounce beer for $36. (Those dining with dad get $2 off their meal if dad orders this special.)
Jonathan's Cork (6320 E. Tanque Verde Road; 296-1631) has surf and turf ($35) and veal Oscar ($29).
Hifalutin Rapid Fire Western Grill (6780 N. Oracle Road; 297-0518) has a 12-ounce New York strip with fixings ($21.95).
Bluefin Seafood Bistro (7053 N. Oracle Road; 531-8500) has a Maine lobster, 6-ounce tenderloin and fixings ($35.)
And if you REALLY wants to treat dad to some killer barbecue this weekend, head over to Juneteenth Festival on Saturday, June 20, at Kennedy Park (3700 S. Mission Road). Boss Hogg—the barbecue outfit that's manned the grills at the festival for 39 years—will again work their magic this year, and they do not disappoint.
