For Fathers
For lunch and dinner during Father's Day weekend, Navy Beach in Montauk has a $150 per person family-style two-course prix fixe surf and turf special for parties of at least four tomorrow through Sunday. The entree is a bone-in ribeye with a chimichurri sauce, crispy smashed potatoes, and roasted garlic butter, and a choice of lobster tagliatelle in a cream sauce or, for an additional $10, a lobster bake that includes a whole lobster, clams, shrimp, mussels, corn, red potatoes, and Old Bay seasoning. Reservations are required. 

At Wolffer
The Wolffer Estate Vineyard Wine Stand in Sagaponack will kick off the weekly Sunset Fridays series of music events at 5 p.m. tomorrow with a performance by the Lynn Blue Band. Wines, ciders, and food items will be available for purchase.

Guests are encouraged to take a blanket and sit on the lawn, and will be required to wear masks until seated. The winery has teamed up with Van Leeuwen Ice Cream to create a vegan raspberry rose sorbet. It is on sale at the wine stand for $12 per pint through July 1. Wolffer also recently released a 2018 Landius pinot noir for $45 per bottle. 

Strawberry Fest
The Wainscott Sewing Society will hold a strawberry festival from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday at the Wainscott Chapel. Strawberry shortcake is $10 for adults, and $5 for children. Proceeds will benefit the chapel. 

One of the 50 Best
Loaves and Fishes in Sagaponack was named one of the 50 greatest food stores in the world by the Financial Times in the publication's recent "How to Spend It" issue. The gourmet takeout shop, owned by Sybille van Kempen, was the only business on Long Island on the list, which included several New York City stores such as Barney Greengrass, the Second Avenue Deli, and Russ and Daughters. 

Now Delivering
The owners of the Brooklyn Italian restaurants Lilia and Misi are offering weekly East End delivery of meal kits, pastas, sauces, meatballs, cheeses, wines, desserts, and pantry items. Orders can be picked up at the East Hampton train station on Thursdays between noon and 12:30. The meal kits for four include ricotta and spinach cannelloni with a simple sauce for $58, and spaghetti with pine nut pesto for $55. An order of six four-ounce pork sausage and beef meatballs costs $63, and a porchetta for four to six is $85. A full menu is available at mpnewyork.nyc.
