While our goal is a home-cooked meal plus a dining table clear of the week’s mail, homework and unfolded laundry, sometimes life gets in the way and eating out is the best option.

Or maybe the kids are at a friend’s house, and it’s just the two of you. Perhaps you just want a table for one to savor dinner and help clear your head for the week ahead. Many restaurants are closed on Sundays, so we’re happy to add to our list of those that aren’t. Here are some of our favorite places to wrap up the weekend.

Steamed mussels and fries from Saint-Emilion

Coq au vin from Saint-Emilion


A relative newcomer to the open-on-Sunday list, the bistro’s low-key vibe fits our weekend mood. Casual dress is welcome, but service is still worthy of any fine-dining establishment. We typically choose from a leisurely glass of wine and a cheeseboard, the classic steamed mussels with crispy frites or a heartier entree such as the coq au vin. We opt for an early dinner reservation, and we go home happy.

Sunday hours 5-8:30 p.m.; reservations suggested

Little Lilly Sushi

On Sundays, we nod at the other regulars and Danny Liu, the owner, while taking our preferred spot at the sushi bar. We’re pretty consistent: a starter of tempura shrimp and vegetables and some sashimi, but we always check the board for Danny’s specials.

Sunday hours Noon-9 p.m.; seating stops at 8:30 p.m; reservations recommended for groups of four or more

Winslow’s Wine Cafe

Sitting on the patio with the firepit blazing on a cool evening is one of life’s simple pleasures at this popular wine bar. The Jim Bowie pizza and a West Side Wedge salad round out a good night.

Sunday hours 4-10 p.m. for dinner

Original Mexican Eats Cafe

Sometimes you just want a plate of comfort food, and on Sunday, that means a full order of loaded beef nachos
if we’re sharing, a half order if we’re not.

Sunday hours 11 a.m.-9 p.m.

Thai Terrace

While it’s noted for being one of actor Harrison Ford’s favorite places to dine in Fort Worth, Thai Terrace also welcomes us mortals. Our go-tos are the tom kha noodle soup with chicken, a comforting bowl of creamy goodness, and pork larb, billed as a salad but much more substantial. Leftovers are just as good the next day.

Sunday hours 11:30 a.m.-8:30 p.m.
