Sunday Funday

End the weekend on a high note with specially priced Sunday dinner offerings. 

We’ve all felt it from time to time—that sinking feeling as Sunday evening approaches, when you realize the weekend hours are waning and it’s back to the grindstone in the morning.

We can’t take the sting out of that Monday morning alarm buzzing, but we do have a few suggestions for taking your mind off it and avoiding those “Sunday Night Blues.” You may have to call it a night a little earlier, but there’s no reason to leave all the fun to Friday and Saturday, thanks to the dining specials at some of our favorite places.

Take, for example, Story: When we first saw award-winning chef Carl Thorne-Thomsen was offering a $10 Sunday entrée at his swanky Prairie Village restaurant, we assumed it was a typo. But it’s all true, folks. Check the Story Facebook page each Sunday for details of that night’s offering, such as pork tenderloin with spinach and roasted potatoes or hanger steak with roasted potatoes, spinach, kale and parsnip purée.

Craving something a little more exotic? RA Sushi in Park Place offers dinner for two for $25. Start off with an order of edamame and then choose four menu items to share from a selection that includes several signature rolls and other dishes such as the pork gyoza and our fave: pineapple cheese wontons (seen below).

 

From Japan to Italy, via Urban Table’s Family Style Italian Dinner—carb up for $18 per person ($9 for kids) with the Corinth Square restaurant’s rotating Sunday special.  Celina Tio’s Brookside restaurant, Julian, offers Restaurant Week pricing year-round: Each week the chef offers a new menu based on whim and market availability. Choose from three courses for $33 or go all out with four for $38. Check Facebook for updates. —Lara Hale
