Join us to celebrate the men in your life.  

 

Dry Aged NY Strip
THE CAPITAL GRILLE

For the man who knows his steaks, a reservation at the comfortably clubby The Capital Grille is recommended. The dry aged, 14-ounce New York strip, hand-cut by the chef, is highly flavorful and carefully cooked to order. The impressive wine-cellar offers a connoisseur’s selection of red wines by the glass or bottle to complement the best in beef.

Paella de Mariscos
VACA

In addition to creative tapas and wood-grilled prime steaks, chef Amar Santana’s crowd-pleasing paellas are meant to be shared. Santana’s travels to Spain inspired four diversely delicious paellas made with imported bomba rice. His classic Valenciana has seafood, chicken and chorizo; paella de vegetales has roasted vegetables and the paella de carne stars pork belly, chorizo, duck confit and beef cheeks. A top seller is the paella de mariscos with clams, mussels, octopus and giant prawns, drizzled with garlic aioli.

Duck & French Toast
TERRACE BY MIX MIX

Chef Ross Pangilinan’s weekend brunch, enjoyed on the lush covered terrace, has a loyal following. One of the most requested dishes is the crispy and savory duck leg confit, served with thick-cut brioche French toast, rich from cinnamon-vanilla custard and crowned with blackberries and warm maple syrup.

A five-star starter is the iced shellfish platter from Water Grill.  Dads will dig into the abundant assortment of super-fresh shellfish that includes seasonal just-shucked oysters, littleneck clams, Peruvian bay scallops, black mussels, wild jumbo brown shrimp and half a North American lobster. Served with fresh horseradish, mignonette, cocktail sauce, habanero-lime relish and plenty of fresh lemon.

Executive Sushi Lunch
HAMAMORI RESTAURANT & SUSHI BAR

If Dad is a sushi fan, take him on a lunch date to this contemporary designed, light-filled spot. The three-course Executive Sushi lunch starts with the Hamamori house salad with fresh ginger dressing, miso soup and then eight pieces of Haman-San’s signature Sushi Gems—pristine, exquisitely cut fish each with a unique topping such as yuzu and truffle.
