Sunday Dinner Deals?

Need help finding a place to have dinner on a Sunday night, preferably a place that has a special deal - eg, prix fix, no corkage fees, etc.

I know of Lucque's Sunday dinner and Dominick's.

Any other recommendations?

  1. The Foundry has prix fixe menus on Sunday night. IIRC, you choose between a 2, 3 or 4 course menu.

      echo- do you know what the price range is?

    2. Pinot Bistro's "Local's Night Sunday" -- 3-course prix fixe for $29 (here is a sample menu, which lists the price at $28, but it's now $29 and still a great deal: Corkage is either free or a couple of bucks. Some folks are down on Pinot Bistro, but I've never had a bad experience there and the food has always been good.

        that's awesome, thanks ozhead

      2. Violet has a prix fixe Sunday dinner with a $10 bottomless glass of wine.

        1. Might not be as nice as you're looking for, but Ciudad has Tapas on the Patio on Sundays

            I really enjoy tapas night at Ciudad - it doesn't hurt that the Piscoritas are good, too.

          2. I've been meaning to try (but haven't yet) Burger Night at Grace on Sundays.
            I don't know if it qualifies as a deal, but it sounds fun!

              Has anyone been? The burger sounds great, but doesn't give much info (price, etc)

                I went a while ago and it was fun. Burger was good (though not amazing). It was pretty crowded, so I'd suggest reservations. Certainly worth a try.

                1. re: asnyder

                  I've been there 3x for burger night but that was a while back...I love it.
                  Range from $18-$24 the truffled-cheese burger was the most expensive but damn well worth it. The only down fall...the ketchup sucks...the 2nd and 3rd times I was tacky enough to sneak a bottle in with me...mmm, the fries are soooo good.

                    Grace Burger night, just went last Sunday 8/12. Had the blue cheese burger (blue cheese was pretty strong so if you don't want to overpower the meat flavor I suggest another cheese), medium rare (perfectly cooked) so delicious! I agree, the ketchup is a bit odd, but you really go for the burgers and not the fries. Price was reasonble too. Service was impeccable. . . so tempted to order off the regular menu, but I had my heart set on the burger. Glad I stuck to my plan.

                      Hi tatertots (again, love your name)
                      Yup, that burger is amazing...I've tried it all ways, with all cheeses and I do agree, no need for cheese, the meat is so good and I really love cheese.

                      On another note...I tried the Sunday Locals Night at Pinot Bistro in the valley and it was a nice expereince. I hadn't been in ages but it was a good meal at a great price and the service was wonderful.
                      My dining companion and I did feel a bit as if we were at a retirement community...counted 5 canes and 3 walkers and no one looked under 50...not like we're spring chickens at 35 but wow, we felt very young.
                      The older crowed were really ordering up the martinis so maybe the next Sunday Dinner we'll try em.

                  So, I finally made it to Burger Night at Grace this past Sunday night. I was surprised that there was a full menu in addition to the burgers, but we stuck with the burger plan. SO got the regular one and I got the blue cheese one. I thought the burgers were very good (although I didn't think that the meat was as good nor the flavors as well-balanced as my favorite burger at Father's Office), but what really stood out were the fries (served with ketchup - which, unlike other here, I didn't really find to be funny - and aioli) and the milkshake (ginger chocolate - amazing!). And of course, the ambience and service at Grace are always so lovely - I just love going there. Note that the burgers are quite huge and so is the serving of fries that comes with them. Next time SO and I are going to share a burger instead of getting our own - but we'll each get our own milkshake! And now for Doughnut Shoppe Night on Wednesday...

                    Hi aching,
                    So glad you enjoyed burger night.
                    Yup, those fries are great, eh?
                    Milkshake? Holy cow! I've never had a milkshake there...uh, oh, must go again.
                    Maybe they finally went "old skool" with the ketchup...what did you think about the bun?.mmmm.
                    The Doughnut Shoppe NIght will be a treat. ENJOY!
