Festive Father’s Day Celebrations Delivered to Dad at Home

If you’ve got good taste, there’s a good chance Dad may be part of the reason why. This Father’s Day, celebrate Dad with a meal that delivers in every way. We’ve selected from some of NoMad’s best-known eateries and put together fail-proof menu options so you can treat him to food that’ll make the day memorable.

Blue Smoke

If Dad likes down-home smoked meats, get some of New York City’s finest barbecue from Danny Meyer’s Blue Smoke. While NoMad eagerly awaits the reopening of its 27th Street location, thankfully you can get still get Blue Smoke’s famous pit barbecue from its Battery Park location.

You can’t go wrong with its Pulled Pork (half pound or pound – rubbed, slow-smoked, and hand-pulled) or a Whole Smoked Brisket (5-6 pounds smoked over Hickory and Oak for 16 hours). And don’t forget a side of Blue Smoke’s creamy Macaroni and Cheese – it’s legendary..

Order pick-up or delivery here. Blue Smoke is planning to fire up the smokers in NoMad soon, so stay tuned to @bluesmokenyc for updates.


A menu of delicious Lebanese cuisine has been created specially for delivery by ilili, including Cold Mezza, Hot Mezza, and Main Plates. For starters, try the Baba Ghannouj, Tabbouleh, and Moussaka with Falafel, Black Iron Shrimp, and Kebab Kerez (lamb and beef meatballs). Entreés of Lamp Chops, Chicken Taauk Duo, or Mixed Grill are sure to satisfy. Extras like Fig Garlic Whip or Mint Yogurt make a tasty meal even better. A selection of Lebanese wine and beer is also available (again, must be over 21).  About now, we all need a bit of excitement in our lives, and this taste experience should make Dad’s special day a standout.

The Smith

If Dad’s into simple foods that taste extraordinary, The Smith is your best bet. You can’t go wrong with the Smith Burger – made to order, with American cheese, apple smoked bacon, pickles, crispy onions, and TSB sauce. Or try the Grilled Chicken Sandwich with burrata, tomato jam, and basil aioli. Both come with fries or greens. But don’t let that keep you from the Brussels sprouts with orange zest and sea salt – they shouldn’t be missed. And best of all, you can order a Negroni, Midtown Manhattan, or a variety of other cocktails, wines, and beers (but only if you’re 21+). Toast to everything he is and has done for you.

Order online here.


Even if Dad thinks Philly cheese steaks must be eaten in Philadelphia, he might think differently after a bite of Shorty’s. Shorty’s ships its bread directly from the City of Brotherly Love, then bakes it fresh on the premises. He’ll taste the real deal with the Original Cheesesteak, Pepper Steak Sandwich, or Cheesesteak Hoagie. Or choose from wide variety of Philly Style sandwiches and salads, wings and fingers, and sides to create a spread he won’t soon forget.

Tarallucci e Vino

Treat Dad to truly authentic Italian cuisine with dishes inspired by greenmarket ingredients. The Spaghetti al Pomodoro (with San Marzano tomatoes, garlic, basil, and Tuscan olive oil) and Lasagna (with veal and beef ragu, béchamel, and parmigiano) are sure to make it a noteworthy day.

Black Barn

Order mouth-watering handcrafted dishes by Black Barn’s Chef John Doherty. Kick things off with appetizers – maybe Crispy Chicken Wings with house made hot sauce and BBQ sauce or Tahini Hummus and Grilled Naan. Then, dive into Grilled Tuna Steak or Ricotta Stuffed Meatballs. Finish the meal right with Apple Cider Doughnuts or Rum Butterscotch Bread Pudding.

Plus, every Black Barn entrée you purchase buys a Heavenly Harvest meal for the elderly homebound through Citymeals on Wheels. So while you’re honoring Dad, you’re helping others, too.
