On Father’s Day, all dads can indulge in BRAZA’s fun brunch and dinner buffets ($298/person for brunch or $398/person for dinner) at half price. Free-flow (+$228) can be added, to include classic old-fashioned cocktails, house red and white wines, spirits and beers. But it’s the unlimited cuts of meat that are the stars of the show at this Brazilian steakhouse, from the eatery’s signature picanha and flank steaks, to suckling pig, to marinated lamb leg.
Chablis wine gifts around town
Running throughout the month of June, the Rejoice Summer Spirits with Chablis in Hong Kong campaign celebrates France’s Chablis wine region, with 27 wine shops and 17 online stores offering Chablis wines from 30 domains in northern Burgundy. We’re sure dads who are also wine connoisseurs would appreciate a gift of a bottle (or two) of Chablis on Father’s Day – whether it be light, floral and citrusy Louis Moreau Petit Chablis 2019 ($119) from Continental Wines or full, rich and round Alain Geoffroy Chablis Beauroy Premier Cru 2018 ($320) from Xtra Wine. Chablis wines make for ideal accompaniments to summertime gatherings, junk trips included!

BBQ brunch + hip flask
Laid-back American-style BBQ eatery Smoke & Barrel is pulling out all the stops for the men of the hour with its Father’s Day brunch ($448/person) on 20 June. In addition to a gut-busting three-course menu with a choice of starter, main and dessert (we’d go for the Texas meatballs in jalapeño tomato sauce, smoked meats platter and triple-chocolate cake with poached cherries and bourbon), all dads will be gifted with a S&B hip flask filled with a maple old-fashioned cocktail alongside homemade chocolate chip cookies to enjoy later on. We recommend the newly launched barrel free-flow ($358/person) to accompany this feast. This free-flow option is served in a mini barrel filled with a deceptively potent mix of bourbon, orange and honey moonshine and also includes unlimited margaritas, micheladas, espresso martinis and more hair-of-the-dog tipples.
