The Weekender: Sunday Supper

Alyson Strickler-Vazquez

Sunday supper is the most soul-awakening meal of the week. Many of us have memories as children gathering around the table on Sunday and sharing a comforting meal of mom’s fried chicken or decadent pot roast. Even as an adult, Sunday supper has continued to feel soothing and joyous and has inspired many long roasts and lazy days spent with loved ones. These Columbus restaurants are running savory Sunday specials allowing you to take the day to rest and still enjoy a warm meal worthy of your family’s dinner table.

The Whitney House has offered Sunday fried chicken since they opened in 2014. Pairing with classic sides such as mac n’ cheese and green beans, this homey dish is made even more special because it’s only offered Sundays. TWH’s buttermilk-soaked chicken is encased in a crunchy yet thin breading heavily seasoned with paprika, thyme, oregano, cumin, and white pepper and thoughtfully paired with a house-concoction of “cinnaracha,” a unique blend of cinnamon, sriracha, and honey. The crisp chicken is perfectly paired with garlicky mac n’ cheese folded into a creamy sauce of cheddar and provolone and topped with toasted breadcrumbs and vibrant green beans brushed with herb butter.

Secret menu item – Family-sized fried chicken (serves 4-6) is available to-go any night of the week.


Cap City Fine Diner & Bar clings to old-school diner days by featuring week-long Blue Plate Specials, including Sunday’s beef stroganoff. This inviting plate starts with house-made pappardelle pasta tossed in a heavy sauce made from demi-glace and creamy house-made alfredo, then layered with button mushrooms, caramelized onions, and cubed short rib. The thick, flat pasta gathers the rich sauce, decadent meat, and caramelized vegetables and is cut through by a finishing dollop of sour cream and cracked pepper. It’s the quintessential warm and soothing meal to cap off the weekend.

The Market: Food, Drink is freshly renovated and bringing Sunday Supper to Italian Village. Beginning this Sunday, September 19th, guests can enjoy a three-course meal for $35. The Market focuses on seasonal and local produce, always ensuring a fresh house-made pasta is part of Sunday’s offerings. A rotating menu of elevated seasonal dishes with menu standouts, including heirloom tomato salad, Wagyu fried chicken steak, and late summer berry custard ensures all guests leave full and ready to take on a brand-new week!

Insider Tip – Sundays at the Market also means ½ price wine!

These three restaurants are helping Columbus fend off the Sunday scaries by plating up comfort food meant for sharing across a boisterous dinner table filled with family and friends.
