Grill 23 & Bar
161 Berkeley St.
Boston, MA 02116
(617) 542-2255

Grill 23 & Bar is the sort of classic, traditional "Father's Day" destination; one that provides the quintessential "steak dinner" quotient for those dads and grandads craving some old school fare. Grill 23 & Bar is a bit more upscale than an average "meat and potatoes" joint, however it has a menu serving up 100-day-aged rib eyes, kobe beef and filet mignon alongside a decadent selection of desserts and drinks. Looking for some primordial male bonding this Father's Day? This is most definitely the place.

Oftentimes, musicians don't fall too far from the family tree, with many inheriting their musical skills from their parents. Cafe Fleuri is the perfect place for these fathers and sons, as this Financial District spot presents what it calls a "Jazz Brunch" on Father's Day, delighting musical families across the city as smooth jazz notes float above Cafe Fleuri's antique, high class atmosphere. Don't be put off by Cafe Fleuri's hotel bar status; this one's a hidden gem.
