Where to Eat:

We are so excited to have outdoor dining back! What are dad’s favorites? Luscious ribs at Odeen’s BBQ or Hoo Doo Brown Barbeque, French cuisine at Luc’s Cafe or Sucre Sale, beer flights in the outdoor “Biergarten” at Nod Hill Brewery, superb Italian at Gallo Ristorante, or a laid back meal at The Hideaway… there are so many incredible spots in Ridgefield to enjoy a meal together.

Check out the list of all the great options for a memorable meal with dad!

What to Gift:

Many of the shops in Ridgefield have reopened or have shopping by appointment available. If you are looking for a great gift for dad, consider a watch from Addessi Jewelers – make a splash with a Vintage Rolex Tudor Black that makes for an incredible gift. 

Dad will love a new XO SAND shirt or Ace & Everett dress socks from Hutton’s Fine Menswear, a new novel from Books on the Common, or new gear from Ridgefield Running Co. And if you want to surprise dad with some well-deserved self care, consider a gift certificate to Adam Broderick Salon or The Dapper Den Barbershop for a new haircut or treatment.

Last but not least, get dad a special treat! Order a personalized dessert from Elizabella’s Bake Shop or end the night with chocolate or ice cream from Deborah Ann’s Sweet Shoppe. And pick up a special bottle of wine or dad’s favorite scotch accompanied by a flavorful platter from 109 Cheese & Wine. No matter the gift, we know it will bring a smile to dad’s face.
