Macho Father's Day Brunches: Five Best Places to Take Dad

Last month was Mother's Day and it was all about flowers, champagne, and lovely brunches filled with tea and crumpets and complimentary roses.

This Sunday it's dad's turn and, while he could probably skip the crumpets, that doesn't mean you should give the old man the shaft by getting him another necktie and calling it a day. case you haven't noticed, by the way -- no one in Miami even wears a necktie.

You know what dad wants? He wants to spend the afternoon with you...and a hunk of meat...and a few bourbons.

Here are the top five most macho brunches in Miami. We're talking steak, booze, and cigars. All worthy of the man who raised you -- complimentary roses not included. Note: Most prices exclude tax and tip and reservations are suggested.

5. It's all about the steak at The Forge's special "daddy loves steak" brunch, where the old man will feast on a three-course prix-fixe menu that includes a choice of black bean and lobster soup or Caesar salad for starters, followed by grilled boneless prime rib with sautéed portobello mushrooms and onions for the main course. For dessert, there's souffle (because kings eat souffle). Brunch is $75 per person, plus, dad will walk out with a $25 gift card for a later date.

4.Terrazza at Shore Club is promising the "manliest Father's Day brunch in Miami", with a buffet that includes charcuterie with plenty of Italian salami and prosciutto; a salad bar; assorted pizzas; soy marinated steak; homemade ravioli; an omelet station; and decadent desserts. Dad can indulge in a signature Father's Day cocktail (basically a whiskey-soaked minty iced tea) or have as many bloody marys, mimosas, and bellinis as he wants (because it's his day). $38 per person (includes one Father's Day signature cocktail) or $58 per dad with unlimited mimosas, bloody marys and/or bellinis).
