Festive pasta-filled dinners are the best way to cure Sunday night blues, and Ronsky’s chef-owner Ron Suhanosky agrees; he’s about to start serving weekly family-style feasts that center around pasta. And he’s not the only one: Several other restaurants around the Boston area have similar options available. Here’s the rundown on Ronsky’s new Sunday dinner service, plus a couple of other destinations around town.
Sunday Sauce at Ronsky’s
Suhanosky, a James Beard Award-winning chef, recently turned his pop-up Italian cafe, Ronsky’s, into a permanent fixture at The Street in Chestnut Hill. Last month, he added wine bar service on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday nights, and soon, he’ll add a special Sunday dinner to the mix as well.
Sunday Sauce will feature a three-course dinner served family-style, starting at 5 p.m. every week. The menu will include Suhanosky’s house-made pasta, along with a salad and dessert. Tickets for Sunday Sauce cost $35 each and are available online. The first dinner kicks off on November 5. Sneak a peek at sample menu options below, but note that Suhanosky will offer one dish from each category for each dinner.
Red Sauce Sunday at the Salty Pig
Meanwhile, over in Back Bay at The Salty Pig, Sunday dinner takes a similar Italian bend with Red Sauce Sunday. The a la carte menu is available from 5 to 10 p.m. each week, with a selection of starters, three kinds of pasta, meat entrees, and pizzas, along with the restaurant’s customizable cheese and charcuterie board.
Romeo’s at Juliet
In Somerville, the last weekend meal comes in the form of “Romeo's At Juliet: Sunday Supper.” From 5 to 8 p.m., Juliet offers a casual dinner experience featuring pastas, small snacks (or sfizi), one entree, and wine options, available for walk-ins only.
