You won’t go wrong with a steak dinner for Father’s Day

As a lover of steaks and burgers, Historic City News editor Michael Gold says he would rather go out for the perfect New York strip and baked potato dinner than just about anything else.  And, on Father’s Day, that’s especially true in St Augustine where we have so many great restaurants to choose from.

A local Flagler journalism student reviewed eight favorite locations for St Augustine Social and her writing in the popular lifestyle magazine caught our eye and the attention of our editor’s ever-hungry stomach.
