Sunday night "deal"?

owen_meany May 22, 2008 09:51 AM

The long weekend means that we have a babysitter on Sunday instead of our usual Saturday. Was wondering if folks had suggestions for a Sunday night spot that serves a prix fixe or otherwise "please come into our restaurant on a Sunday night" deal.

For example, I know (and have sampled) the Sunday night special at Rendezvous.

Any others spring to mind?

        You may not want to go out to the 'burbs, but Chiara Bistro off of 128 in Westwood has a Sunday-Thursday 3 for $33.00 ($45.00 with wine pairings) that is great value for very good food. I order from the regular menu, but the onion soup, haddock and creme brulee are family favorites. They have an on-line menu at www.chiara-bistro.com, but I would call ahead if this interests you as they are often full.

          I just read somewhere "stuff @ night" maybe? that sage was doing some sort of family-style prix fixe on sunday nights, for $33. I don't know anything about it, but sounds like it could be interesting. Maybe their website has info?

            I asked a similar question recently and ended up at Sage. See below.

              I just took a look at their Sunday menu and am not all that impressed. Basically you get lasagna and a salad, with either biscotti or a cannoli, for $28. Doesn't seem that all that special of a deal to me. I'd rather pay a few more bucks and have some more variety at Rendezvous.

              This sounds interesting at G@C. Is it an unadvertised special?, as I did not see anything on their website. Is it the entire menu or a special section for Sunday nites.

                It is a special menu for Sundays, but generally well represented by some standards off the regular menu.

              Marco in the North End has a Family Sunday Dinner. I realize you are not going with Children but it might be fun with friends.

                Vincenzo's in Chelmsford has early bird specials that include a cup of minestone, or soup of the day, 10 choices of entrees and dessert for $14.95. The portions are generous. They are served from 4:30-7pm on Sundays.

                  Craigie Street Bistrot has two prix-fixe options for Sunday night. First is the regular prix-fixe option, $38 for 3 courses, which is available most nights except Fri and Sat before 9. Then there is the "chef's whim", available only after 9 pm on Sundays. It's described as follows:
                  On Wednesday and Sunday evenings after 9:00 pm, Chef Tony Maws cooks for your table — either a $39.99 four-course or $55 six-course menu. Tony cooks impromptu dishes that may not be on the regular menu, and is at his most inventive, spontaneous, and generous. It's never the same meal twice and your palates and pocketbooks are the winners! The "Chef's Whim" is available in two versions only — "The Surprise" (which may contain meat and fish) and Vegetarian. We regret that there are no other selections or substitutions.

                  I'm not shilling for them, just providing info. I've never done the Chef's Whim but I'm doing to try it, it sounds great.

                    Be careful, most specials like 'Sunday Deals' do not run on Hoilday week-ends. I'd call first.
