Good places to eat on Sunday?

forkSkye emails:

Sunday's the day my husband & I have a meal with his dad, and whenever I run through the checklist in my head of places I would love to go, I find most of them are closed (esp. in Troy, it seems).

So Skye's looking for some suggestions about good places to eat on Sunday -- and, we'll add, dinner especially (a lot of places are open for brunch).

One suggestion to start things off: we've had some nice Sunday evening meals at Chez Mike in East Greenbush -- it's open 5-9 pm on Sundays.

Have suggestions for Skye? Please share!

I second Chez Mike - get the short ribs!

My two favorites are open: New World Bistro Bar and Cafe Madison. Cafe Madison is open 5:30-9 and offers a three course prix fixe menu (it's also available Monday and Tuesday nights) for $20.

Amazing Italian food! And the "special sauce" on Sunday (includes a hard boiled egg!)

Casa Mia in Glenmont is open on Sundays (or at least the last time I checked...).

I hope I don't get in trouble for revealing a "trade" secret, but Cafe Capriccio is open Sundays and it is a popular spot for hospitality industry folks. Creo is open also and they were doing a great wine special (25 or 50% off) with the purchase of 2 entrees.

Brown's is always a great default option!

The Wine Bar and Bistro on Lark! Open at 5:00pm, 7 days a week. The menu is extensive, ever changing, and has something for everyone. And on Sunday you stand a good chance of getting a prime seat on the best patio in Albany (or by a warm fireplace if you're coming in on a cold day).

Chez Mike any night of the week. Their food is excellent.

Thanks Phoebe, and I must mention that our Wine After Work specials are available all night on Sunday and Monday. We will be closed on 9/5 and 9/6 for the Labor Day Holiday!!

Skye, I hear Dan & Liana's house is great.
