Struggling trying to figure out the perfect gift for the man who has it all on this Father’s Day? Perhaps the easiest way to approach this would be by applying the old saying: “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” The fact that dining and drinking options in South Florida are endless, there are many ways to say “I love you, dad.” Here are the top five spots to honor South Florida fathers on June 21.

The Biltmore Hotel
1200 Anastasia Ave.
Coral Gables, FL 33134
(855) 311-6903

Home to arguably the best gourmet brunch in South Florida, listing The Biltmore Hotel as one of the top spots to celebrate Father’s Day 2015 is certainly a no-brainer. Dad deserves the best and that’s exactly what he will get at one of the oldest, most prestigious hotels in the Sunshine State. For $85 a person – $42.50 for children between the ages of five to 11 – dad can enjoy bottomless mimosas and/or Bellinis, along with a scrumptious buffet that includes caviar, smoked salmon, shellfish, carved meats, omelets, pastas, sushi and more. Be sure and reserve in advance on the following website, and complete the Father’s Day 2015 experience by booking a tee time at The Biltmore’s 18-hole (par 71) championship golf course just a few steps away.

Rusty Pelican
3201 Rickenbacker Causeway
Key Biscayne, FL 33149

The weekend brunch at Rusty Pelican has been voted among the “Best Spots to Brunch in Miami” and the “Best Sunday Brunch” by a number of publications. Not only are the brunch menu options some of the best in South Florida, but the view and the ambiance also make it worthy of being among the top five spots to celebrate Father’s Day in 2015. Be sure and check out the “brunchy type of things,” which include crab cake Benedict, Maine lobster benedict, and other succulent brunch options.

Randazzo’s Little Italy on Miracle Mile is the ideal spot for dads with huge appetite for Italian food on this Father’s Day 2015. Former professional boxer, Marc Randazzo has mastered his grandmother’s recipes and has turned this restaurant into one of the most unique dinning experiences on The Mile. Be sure and try the fried calamari paired with dad’s favorite wine or cocktail to kick things off, followed by some of the chef’s specialties. Those in the mood for spaghetti and meatballs are in for a treat, as Randazzo’s version of this classic dish is legendary in South Florida. Also, be sure and try the veal, which is without a doubt one of the best entrees on the menu.

Palmetto Golf Course

Planning to celebrate Father’s Day 2015 by taking dad to play 18 holes of golf? If so, Palmetto Golf Course is the perfect option for golfers of all skill levels on this special occasion. Why not spend the day at the luxurious Trump National Doral – or any of the other great golfing options in South Florida? Only four words are needed to put this issue to rest: Sports Grill chicken wings. Because the 19t Hole at Palmetto Golf Course is the only golf course in South Florida that offers these award-winning chicken wings, it automatically makes it as one of top destinations. Can anyone think of a better way to celebrate Father’s Day than a round of golf followed by some scrumptious “special grilled” chicken wings and ice-cold beer?
