Father’s Day is just around the corner, falling on June 16 this year. Here are some of our picks to satisfy even the most finicky dad.

What dad wouldn’t enjoy a trip to Peter Luger Steak House in Williamsburg. Here you can share a Porterhouse steak for two, three or four at this Landmark Brooklyn location. There’s also Luger’s Sizzling Bacon served by the slice.

If that's not enough, David Burke Tavern and Park Ave Tavern by David Burke are cooking up a 40-ounce French-boned Tomahawk with the bone engraved with words “Happy Father’s Day ’24.” It's available for dining in or part of a kit.

At Chef Michael Lomonaco’s Porter House, Roast Prime Rib Au Jus is the meat of choice while dad can enjoy picturesque views of Central Park.

For swanky dads, a trip to the Pineapple Club is in order for brunch or dinner. One drink, Fight Milk, is a blend of dark rum, pineapple and lime juices that is finished with Campari, and takes two days to prepare.

Dad is deserving of some 24 carat gold. At Coqodaq, from the folks behind Cote, the ultimate chicken nugget comes wrapped in 18 Karat gold leaf with ocean trout roe ($16/pc) or 24 Karat with Golden Daurenki caviar ($28/pc)

Demonico's has been celebrating dads since 1837. Treat dad to brunch with Oyster Shooters in a Bloody Mary shot, Eggs Benedict (back for one day only) and the iconic Delmonico Burger with bacon and cheese fondue.

Give dad a little boost with some “Tiger’s Milk” at Mission Ceviche known to energize your sex life. There are four varieties offered. It’s located on the Upper East Side with a new Union Square location on the way.

Take dad on an Instragrammable trip to Sushidelic offering an immersive Japanese Kawaii experience where cocktails, sushi and other dishes are delivered at the bar via conveyor belt.

Newly opened NOFLEX NYC is a new immersive lounge that dad might love with a 72-foo LED wall with custom digital artwork and sharable pan-Asian plates.

Everdene at the Virgin Hotel in Nomad is marking Father’s Day with a Cigar & Whiskey experience featuring Jefferson's Bourbon.

Head Upstate New York for a Father’s Day Tea Dance with RuPaul Drag Queens at The Tasting Room at Catskill Provisions Distillery. Tickets are $30 and include a free beverage.

Give dad a break from the barbecue at The Standard Biergarten, which is offering the perfect al fresco dining option. Specials include BBQ Lamb Ribs, Smashed Burgers and a $15 Beer + Shot combo.

Give dad a round of golf at one of Tiger Woods’ simulators at T-Squared Social which he operates with Justin Timberlake near Bryant Park. Luxury “Box Seats” are also available by reservation.

Cathedrale has just added a 48 oz Mishima Reserve Wagyu Tomahawk to its Father's Day Feast (serves up to 4), a generous cut of awe-inspiring beef that is a Ribeye with the full bone still attached that dad is sure to love.

Happy Father’s Day!!
