The New Sunday Dinner: Four Meals To Round Out The Weekend

"Winner, winner chicken dinner" at Scofflaw
A tradition as American as apple pie and TV dinners is the Sunday dinner. Unfortunately, recently, the TV part became more important than the dinner part. New episodes of Shameless take priority over spending time with family or friends over a good meal at the end of the weekend. Shame on you, Chicago. Let’s fix this travesty with some new edible option for Sunday supper.

Lincoln Square's most adorable addition to the dining scene is a cozy restaurant with comforting food prepared by chef Ken Carter. On Sunday he serves a special sharing menu with dishes such as roasted chicken and spaghetti with meatballs. The meal costs $26 per adult and children younger than 10-years-old eat for free (one child per adult). (773-506-9300).

“Winner, winner chicken dinner” are the words on everyone’s lips at in Logan Square on Sunday nights. Chef Mickey Neely selects five luck birds, a full house of poultry, and turns them into a five-course dinner. The dishes change weekly, but the meal always costs $60 for four people. (773-252-9700).

Late last year, we tested the multi-course masterpiece prepared by Chef Takashi Yagihashi. If you have not made it to Bucktown for the Sunday night's Kaiseki dinner, you are doing your stomach a disservice. The 7-course meal costs $73 per person, and the more elaborate 11-course meal costs $100 per person. (773-772-6170).

If you find yourself downtown on a Sunday night without a lot of spare change, then grab this new Southern fried chicken special in River North. The meal comes with two pieces of boneless fried chicken breast and a choice of two sides (mashed potatoes, collard greens, mac ‘n’ cheese, coleslaw or cornbread) for $12. (312-943-9700).
