It’s dad’s choice at the Fairmont Royal York

Calling all fathers… The Fairmont Royal York hotel is teaching Dad a lesson this Father’s Day – a lesson in beer, whiskey and food pairing that is. Dads who like to dine may choose from the EPIC Father’s Day Brewmaster’s Dinner, featuring a pre-fix menu with a selection of beers from the local Mill Street Brewery, or an afternoon of whiskey tasting paired to canapés in the York Station Bar, on June 17. EPIC Restaurant chef, Tim Palmer, will prepare parmesan crusted jumbo sea scallops; bacon wrapped Canadian prime beef tenderloin, and close dinner with traditional sticky toffee pudding for Dad’s Mill St. Brewmaster’s Dinner. Costing $79 (exclusive of tax and grats) p.p., the dinner will be from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the hotel’s signature EPIC restaurant on June 17. Mill St. Brewery’s brewmaster, Joel Manning, will educate dads on the history of beer, covering the nuances of flavour, aroma and style, and Dads depart with their own Mill St. taster six pack, as the swag of the evening. Call EPIC at 416-860-6469 to make a reservation or e-mail . When afternoon Father’s Day celebrations are in order, the smallest bar in Toronto, York Station Bar, is the ideal location for a Father’s day nip. Only 20 spots are available for this rare pouring of four single malt whiskies. Costing $39 p.p. (includes taxes, exclusive of grats), the tasting begins at 2:30 p.m. through to 4:30 p.m. June 17. Call 416-860-5097 to reserve. Before or after enjoying Father’s Day, guests may take advantage of The Fairmont Royal York’s a la carte Father’s Stay Rate of $159 on June 16 or 17 (subject to availability in 2012 and exclusive of taxes).
