    When planning for Father’s Day, it can be tough. For even the most modern dad, their interests usually include their family, food and football. Which is exactly why we choose six great restaurants that will satisfy any papa. Why? Because no matter where you choose, he will leave fed to the fullest.

    And to replace football, we found a couple of spots that will be airing the Miami Heat game. One that is even giving out free beer for just being a fan.

    La Gloutonnerie 81 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach
    Have that dad who is always looking for the hottest new eatery in the 305? Well, La Gloutonnerie, the new South of Fifth French vintage kitchen, is opening its doors to celebrate Father’s Day “family style.” Not only is the food delicious, but the restaurant itself is very Old World traditions meets modern Miami. And for the child not sure what to get dad this Father’s Day, there is no need to worry when dining here. Any pops that come in to La Gloutonnerie will leave with their very own present from the restaurant, a $50 gift certificate valid for their next visit.

    Edge Steak & Bar 1435 Brickell Avenue, Miami
    Does burgers and beer sound like your dad’s ideal afternoon? Lunch at Edge Steak & Bar will make him very, very happy this Sunday then. They are going all out with a special just for pops. Suggest their Dad Burger: a fire grilled 8-oz. Creekstone Farms burger, bacon, ham, aged American cheddar, a fried egg, pickles and a sesame seed bun. If his mouth isn’t watering from that, it is also served with house cut fries, a glass of Cigar City beer, and a cigar. Let us not forget that it includes a very Father’s Day inspired take-home bag filled with a cigar cutter, spice rub, hot sauce and a voucher for their next visit.
