Treat dad to a special meal this Father’s Day!
Salt & Iron, Bar Dojo, San Kai, and THE MAR•KET | fishmonger
Edmonds restauranteur/executive chef Shubert Ho’s four foodie fiefdoms (Salt & Iron, Bar Dojo, San Kai, and THE MAR•KET | fishmonger & eatery, celebrating its two-year anniversary this weekend) present lots of options to choose from: gift cards — digital or in-store, as well as menu specials for those opting to dine in, or out.
Father’s Day Weekend coincides “with the street closure in downtown Edmonds for pedestrian traffic and sidewalk dining,” Ho says. Mayor Mike Nelson recently announced Edmonds’ first street closures, a pilot program, on Main Street, between 3rd and 6th Ave., to take place June 20, 10 a.m.-9 p.m., and June 21, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.
Nelson encourages restaurants and stores to take advantage of the official start of summer, and take their business outside, which dovetails nicely with COVID’s social distancing.

For me, Father’s Day is a day in which I get to enjoy the fruits of fatherhood, where my kids bring me treats and show me the love I’ve given them, which consequently was given to me by my father, and my father’s father, etc.,” Ho says. “It’s also a day in which I remember those ‘Father Figures’ in my life that have led me to where I am today.
Bar Dojo serves up the “Ocean’s Bounty” for Father’s Day, with three mouth-watering dishes: a crawfish seafood boil, a dozen oysters from Taylor Shellfish, and smoked, Thai peanut-rubbed pork chop. Preorders kick off June 15.
“For me, Father’s Day is a really special day, just like Mother’s Day!” Bar Dojo Chef Luis Brambila says. “I grew up with the love of both of them, and they are both special to me. Now that I’m a dad of three beautiful daughters, I feel so loved by them every single day. So, it makes my paternal bonds feel really special.”
