With Father's Day this weekend, waste no time making a reservation for the family at these five spots in NYC.
Treat Dad to an all-American brunch (with mimosas, obviously) at David Burke Tavern, where the celebrity chef transformed two floors of an Upper East Side townhouse into a contemporary eatery. This spot’s elegant yet relaxed vibe is the perfect place to brunch Sunday morning. Specials for the day include steak and eggs, lobster steak and a shrimp avocado “guactail” with quinoa, shaved fennel, radish and citrus. 135 E. 62nd St., Manhattan, 212-988-9021; davidburketavern.com
