For the Desperate: Last-Minute Father's Day Tables

Where to take Dad on Sunday.

If the plan isn't for grilling or a game, restaurants are always a solid back-up plan for where to take Dad for Father's Day. Didn't get around to planning something special? Here are some standout, brand new or particularly dad-friendly restaurants on Table8 or OpenTable (Resy's another alternative for those with the app) that still have tables for 4 on Sunday for dinner.

Eater's highlighting some particular favorites, but if none appeal, do some additional searching — Father's Day isn't as ridiculous of a day to dine out as, say, Valentine's Day or Mother's Day, so there appear to be more options this year. But act quickly; these slots won't stay around forever.
