1. Steak Dinner at T-Bar Steak & Lounge


A classically-chic eatery, T-Bar Steak and Lounge offers outstanding cuisine in a casual yet elegant space. Under the watchful eye of restaurateur Tony Fortuna, previously of the Lenox Room, and Executive Chef Ben Zwicker, T-Bar is a new spin on the classic upscale steak house. T-Bar’s enchanting charm is brought to life by a stylish, dark-wood accented dining room, frosted glass details and orange back lighting.  The sophisticated dining room, adjacent to a smaller bar area and with a soft candlelit glow, leads through to an elevated and more intimate dining area. The menu features a wide range of dishes, ranging from well-cooked renditions of classics, to refined and inventive plates, providing the ultimate dining experience.

Located at 1278 3rd Ave, New York, NY (at 73rd Street)

2. A Lobster Dinner at Swifty’s


Upper East Side restaurant Swifty’s will have its popular three-course Sunday Night Lobster Special this Father’s Day. Known for its classic and superbly-executed American and European cuisine, the dinner special offers patrons a fresh and flavorful lobster feast for the set price of $125 for two, which includes a bottle of red or white wine, a perfect treat for your father. Swifty’s has been a favorite Upper East Side haunt for over 15 years, despite the chic neighborhood’s ever-changing dining scene. A sophisticated yet low-key restaurant, Swifty’s attracts a devoted clientele. Owners Stephen Attoe and Robert Caravaggi, former chef and maître d’ respectively, of legendary Upper East Side boîte Mortimer’s combine classic, straight-forward American and European cuisine with friendly and impeccable service. The ambient dining room, reminiscent of a well-appointed English country house, was created by famed decorators Mario Buatta and Anne Eisenhower.

Located at 1007 Lexington Avenue New York, NY (Btwn 72nd & 73rd Streets)

3. A Round of Golf at Hampton Hills Golf and Country Club


Located in the middle of a 2,000-acre pine and oak tree preserve, the wooded course allows members to escape the rush of the city in favor of peaceful competition against a challenging golf course. The private course at Hampton Hills Country Club was designed and constructed in 1965 by Francis J. Duane, a past president of the American Society of Golf Course Architects who designed courses with famed golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and the legendary Arnold Palmer.   One of the most popular members-only courses on the East End, the par 71 course is spread over 209 acres of rolling hills, with a rating of 73.6 and a slope of 134.  The course boasts incredibly scenic vistas, with some tees overlooking hundreds of acres with not a home or vehicle in sight to interrupt views or distract players. Recently, the golf club held a Single Swing contest, with the grand prize being an Aston Martin DB9 Volante, valued at over $230,000.

Located at County Rd 31, Westhampton Beach, NY

5. Enhance Your Home Barbecue Cookout with Hamptons Salt


All of the health concerns around processed salt cause us to forget just how wonderful naturally raw, infused or smoked salts can be to enhance and subtly change the flavor of our favorite summer dishes.  Peter Pierce of Hamptons Salt Company is on a mission to change our minds and educate our taste buds as to just how good naturally produced salt can be. The Raw salt range consists of a diverse array of naturally produced salts including Hawaiian, Atlantic, Himalayan, French Fleur de Sel to our classic Cooking Salt. Infused salts offer the possibility of enhancing a dish with a subtle flavoring from a range encompassing distinctive Black Truffle, to fiery Ghost Pepper to subtle Lemon and even Espresso for the coffee lover. Smoked salts offer connoisseurs a unique set of aromas – try the exquisite Smoked Mesquite for example.  Not sure where to start?  Why not enjoy or provide a host with a gift box containing a specially curated set of salts for the Bartender, Globe Trotter or even the Grill Master to name a few.
