While everyone loves a solid brunch to say thank you to moms, dads, and morning cocktails, this round up skews slightly meatier. From pig roasts to Spanish or German sausages, celebrate dad with these fun menus this weekend.
SATURDAY, JUNE 18
With great timing comes great responsibilty to debut a Middle Eastern brunch on Capitol Hill. Oh yes, be one of the first to eat at Mamnoon’s brunch, which starts this Saturday and Sunday, from 10 to 3. Dads—and everyone—can try housemade Za’atar bagels with smoked black cod or salmon with labneh. There’s also shakshuka, a dish of eggs cooked in a spicy, tomato-pepper sauce with feta and served with warm, barbari bread. Call Mamnoon to reserve your spot.
Meanwhile in West Seattle, a Northwest-style pig roast is going down this Saturday. It will be the first in a summer series of roasts at Fresh Bistro’s new patio. Share a whole, roasted pig with dear old dad, as well as some comforting sides like grilled asparagus, baked apples, and baby potatoes beginning at 6. Call Fresh Bistro for reservations.
Tarsan i Jane
The patio just opened at this Frelard restaurant, which means Valencian-style barbecue and drinks for dad from 5 to 10pm. Here, you’ll find housemade chorizo-esque sausages charred on the open-air grill, plus refreshing beer cocktails served in a carafe. And if you’re looking to celebrate here on Sunday, from 11 to 3, they serve up paella for a Spanish brunch.
SUNDAY, JUNE 19
The four-in-one Capitol Hill restaurant is throwing its quarterly Feast BBQ and, aww, just in time to celebrate your carnivorous, barbecue-loving dad. This family style meal will have a myriad of meats, some of which that are marinated in savory sauces; there will also be cocktails coming from Trove’s bar, as well as a New York Cheesecake parfait for dessert. Tickets are $75 and feasting starts at 6 on Sunday.
At this Pioneer Square spot, prost to dad, German style. Dads can get their own cured and smoked ham with smashed potatoes, sauerkraut, and mustards. And to drink, try a German beer flight or a cocktail of bourbon, lemon, orange marmalade, hefe-weissebier, and orange bitters. Call Altstadt for reservations.
Bell and Whete
Clearly, the more pig roasts, the better. At this Belltown gastropub, there’ll be roasted, fall-apart pork served with Turkish-spiced potatoes and grilled corn for $24. Also on menu: a housemade corned beef sausage grinder with fermented kraut, beer mustard, and fries for $10, plus New York steak with confit morels for $34.
