A Foodie Father’s Day

You know what they say: the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach!

If you’re still trying to find that perfect gift to get your dad for Father’s Day this year (coming up on which is June 21!), have no fear. We’ve got you covered—check out our list of gift ideas from local Nashville restaurants that any foodie dad is guaranteed to love.

Caffe Nonna

In remembrance of his late daughter, Chef Dan launched Nonna’s Gourmet Foods to raise money for childhood illnesses. When you purchase their authentic marinara, spicy arrabiata sauce, homemade crackers, pastas, jellies and more, 100 percent of proceeds go to organizations dedicated to fighting childhood illnesses.


Is your dad a coffee connoisseur? Stop by Fido and peruse the wide variety of local Bongo Java coffees, mugs and more that they sell in store (and also available at Fenwick’s 300). Don’t forget to grab a muffin or pastry to go with it on your way out the door!

GRAY’S on Main

Known for their variety of creative cocktails, GRAY’S on Main sells bottles of their homemade tonic! It is made with Peruvian cinchona bark, and flavored with lemongrass, fresh lime, lemon, and Bergamot oil—which gives it an earl grey flavor. While it pairs well with gin or vodka, GRAY’S suggests mixing it with an un-aged brandy. Bonus: your dad can bring his bottle into the restaurant for refills at a reduced price!

Jimmy Kelly’s Steakhouse

Every foodie dad knows that wine is the perfect match for a delicious steak! Jimmy Kelly’s sells a Grapevine Wine Decanter to remove any sediment or impurities from wine to ensure that you get the purest flavor.
