Sunday evening feasts and Monday evening dinner deals in Toronto

On Sunday evening, we were craving lasagne or roast beef and came up with Porzia as our only good idea. However, we wanted to eat at 5 pm, and Porzia only opens at 6 so we postponed that plan.

Where else serves a memorable, delicious, special menu on Sundays (e.g. roast dinner, or a prix fixe, or a family meal), and/or discounts on amazing food on Mondays?

(We ended up at Barque but regretted the $30 per person family meal. So, please, Hounds, don't suggest places with mediocre or below-average food in its category.)

  1. Nota Bene has $2 oysters or $16 for 6+Hoegaarden on Monday and Tuesday evenings.

    1. The Beechtree Cafe on Kingston Rd has a roast beef dinner every Sunday, along with the rest of their menu. Great little place - good food & service.

      1. The Miller Tavern, at Yonge St. and York Mills Rd., offers a prime rib dinner from 4 p.m. on Sundays (and Saturdays as well). In three sizes, starting at $25 for 10 ounces. Includes mashed potatoes, veggies and Yorkshire pudding. Whether it qualifies as "delicious", "memorable", "amazing" or even a good deal, as the OP requested, I knoweth not, because I've never sampled it. But the Miller, which I drop in to occasionally - it's just a five-minute drive from my lodgings - usually does reasonably well with basic dishes like prime rib, steaks and such. Not so much "amazing", more like "satisfying" - if you stay with the tried and true menu items. Spacious, comfortable upstairs dining room overlooks a park. Good service. Attached free parking lot. Reasonably priced wine list (for uptown Yonge St.), with $1 corkage on Mondays.

        1. The Queen and Beaver and Oxley both have a Sunday evening roast menu - you can pre-order for a group of 5+ or they have more limited options a la carte such as roast beef/yorkshire pudding. Sundays only. I have found quality is good. Not really a special price though.

          Big Crow has had the Hibernation special all winter for $24.99 Sunday thru Wed (I think). Very big portions for the price and IMHO it beats Barque quite handily. Not sure how long it goes.

          Zucca has a good prix fixe that is available Sundays and Mondays. I have always found it to be a good value.

          1. re: Cat123

            The new Brooklyn Tavern at Queen and Leslie does a Sunday roast beef dinner. Not sure the cost but it's on my list to try.

            1. re: Cat123

              I found the Hibernation to be VERY good value on my visit - and worth every penny. Even the sides/starters. Could've eaten those alone.

            2. Canteen has a Sunday Roast Dinner but I am not sure of the details. Just seen the poster when heading to Lightbox

              1. Weslodge is now doing "The Cutting Board" available on Sundays and Mondays from 5PM onwards. It features a selection of meats and is $29. Apparently it can feed 2.

                " Available on Sunday and Monday from 5pm onwards only, diners can share a platter piled high with superior meats meticulously prepared with Weslodge’s signature high level of technique using only the finest quality ingredients. Carefully sourced beef, pork, lamb, and poultry are aged, marinated or slow-cooked to delicious perfection, elevating the usual meat platter to an elegant indulgence."

                1. re: th3hungrycat

                  Note that it's $29pp and a minimum of 2 must order. There was some confusion on that (the presser wasn't very clear).

                  1. re: jlunar

                    I would pay maybe $35 for that but no way is it worth $60...

                2. Union (http://union72.ca) has a prix fixe menu on Sunday evenings. I think it is $35pp but it is not on their site. Delicious every time.

                  I think Marben does a pig roast once a month on Sundays. I've never tried it but I hear good things.

                  1. I think Bristol Yard does a Sunday roast - perhaps only in the winter? Haven't been, but I'd like to.

                    1. I know I know, but o&b at yonge and front has a roast special on Sundays from 4pm. Roast beef, yorkie, mash, veg. 22$. Plus half price bottles of cabs and sauv blancs all day Sunday.

                      1. Enoteca Ascari offers half-price bottles of wine on Sundays (maybe Mondays, too? Not sure about Mondays, though)

                        Table17 has no corkage on Sundays (again not sure about Mondays but might be Mondays too)

                        Sidecar has a great prix fixe for $27 Sun - Wed. I'll go there for a "badass mojito" any day of the week ;-)

                        Skin + Bones has a prix fixe for $35 Sun - Thurs

                        1. I've looked for Sunday roast dinners a while back and found them at:
                          1) The Roy
                          2) Murphy's Law
                          3) Ceili Cottage
                          and then just gave up. I'm not suggesting them.

                            I love the food at Starfish and have found it decent at Ceili Cottage. Is their roast subpar?

                          2. Farmhouse Tavern often does F*&k Mondays. On Sunday evenings. Different deals every hour from 5 pm on (buck a shuck, beer specials, half-priced food).

                              Ah yes, farmhouse. I've always wanted to go there, particularly on a Sunday night.
                              Will have to check out zucca too. It's just up the street from me, but I've only been once.

                            2. Sadly, Porzia RAN OUT of lasagne last Sunday so we had to order from the normal a la carte menu.
                              However, they are starting a "DOPO" snack menu after 3 pm during summer Sundays.

                              1. The County General has a Sunday special that changes weekly. I think it is family style unless they have changed it recently. They also have wild turkey Mondays where for $20 you can get "WildTurkey maple baked beans, tomato jam, black pudding, white sausage, ham, pork belly, mushrooms, hash browns and a BBQ bourbon Caesar to help shake off the weekend." This runs til 4pm so perhaps a bit too early for dinner.
