Sunday night deals

I remember the Globe did an article about places that did special deals on Sunday nights to try and get more business/give other kitchen staff a chance to do something different.
One example was Rocca (2 Sous Chefs, 2 Courses and a Sweet, $22 according to their website). Does anyone have any other suggestions?

    Sun. family dinners: KO Prime (Retro Sun $25 all you can eat prime rib), Pigalle: $40 (I think) 3 courses w/ wine, Rendezvous ($38 3 courses), Rialto ($40 3 courses), Rocca (4PM $22 for 2 courses and a sweet), Sage (5:30 $25 w/ cheese plate), Vlora ($35 3 courses)

      That's great. Thank you.
      Any you can recommend? specifically for the deals above, not just overall recommendations as restaurants.

          I'll second that. For what you get in terms of quantity and quality at Rendezvous, it's a great deal.

      Craigie Street Bistrot's "Chef's Whim Menu", a four-course meal for $40 or a six-course for $55, is served after 9:00 on Sundays and Wednesdays:

      An extra Sunday bonus here is being able to park on Cragie Street without a resident sticker.

        Doesn't La Morra have a special deal on Sundays?

            Thank you to everyone for their replies. We ended up following one of Joanie's recommendations and going to Sage for their Sunday Supper menu. It was $28 for three courses. We had to ask for the Sunday supper menu as it wasn't provided. There was initially some confusion as to whether it was only available in the bar area but they were fine with us having it in the dining room. The menu order was pasta course, salad, then dessert. Maybe this is typical or traditional but I would happily have switched the salad and pasta courses. I had the lasagna which was good - not remarkable, but tasty. The salad course was simple greens, but the highlight was the cheese that came with it. A sheep's milk cheese with truffles somehow that I don't remember the name of (it's not on the menu online). We had asked for the mozzarella but the chef apparently didn't think it was up to much so made the change which we appreciated. Desserts were mini cannoli or a selection of cookies including mini macaroons and biscotti. which were pretty good. Overall nothing knocked my socks off, except that cheese, but for $28 I'd recommend it and it beats cooking on a Sunday night. Service was good, especially given the Mothers' Day crowd. Certainly made me want to try other Sunday night menus mentioned here.

                Sage for me is kind of "nothing knocked my socks off" (a fave expression of mine too) in general. Not that I'm a regular, but haven't walked out wowed my few times there. Then again, haven't been wowed in a while (except the meatloaf w/ portobello mushrooms and sour cream mashed at work last week).
