It comes as no surprise that this month should be all about Dads! And they deserve some much-needed attention. Whether you’re looking for the perfect pair of golf socks at Dennis Shea Shoes, a new Vineyard Vines polo at McCaulou’s Department Store or even a gift card to their favorite Lincoln Center restaurant — what Dad really wants is a Steak. A steak at home. We chatted with 4 different and important Dads around the Center, who gave us some fresh cut ideas on how to cook their perfect steak.
Bud & Matt Millsaps | Owner’s
Bud’s Seafood Grille
Favorite thing to do on Father’s Day: Both Bud & Matt spend Father’s Day together with their families. Matt likes to do close to nothing, relaxing and hanging out with his three-and-a-half-year-old son, Troy. Bud likes to BBQ and play with his grandchildren while they run through the yard.
Favorite steak: Bud’s Beef, of course! Throw it on the BBQ at medium-high heat for the best results. You can purchase raw Bud’s Beef from Bud’s Seafood Grille any time!
Nick diArenzo | Chef
Market Tavern and Prime Table
Favorite thing to do on Father’s Day: Work! Not really, but being in the restaurant business means most holidays are spent in the kitchen. If he could pick his dream Father’s Day, it would be sitting on the beach in Thailand with his family or watching Nathan, his oldest, play soccer.
Favorite steak: Ribeye. A Big One. Nick’s favorite way to prep a ribeye is to season it with sea salt and let sit at room temp for 45 minutes to an hour. He suggests to cook steaks on natural fuel, such as wood or charcoal, or use a cast iron skillet, cook for 3-4 minutes on each side then let them rest, add a little more Maldon sea salt (found at Market Tavern or Podesto’s), glaze a little local olive oil and enjoy!
Bernie Morgenstern | Owner
Podesto’s Market and Deli
Favorite thing to do on Father’s Day: Be with the family! There’s nothing that makes Bernie happier than spending quality time with his family. He looks forward to the day every year.
Favorite steak: A Tomahawk Steak. It’s a thick cut, ribeye steak with the bone. The best way to prepare it is to season it with Blue Star Seasoning, roast it in the oven or even throw it on the BBQ!
Michael Midgley’s | Owner
Midgley’s Public House
Favorite thing to do on Father’s Day: Mike says “Absolutely nothing!” That sounds like a perfect day.
Favorite steak: A Tomahawk Steak! Season it with salt & pepper, grill it on each side for 10 minutes and finish it off in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes and voila!
