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.

... Much of what makes the area special is the suburban and rural experience and public natural resources. If that stuff isn't really your thing, you're not an asshole, you just have personal tastes that don't mesh well with the region. That said, you do have to put in effort to like this area. It doesn't come to you; for better or worse, you have to seek it out. And that's not for everyone either. ...
