We mourned the day that downtown French bistro 39 Rue de Jean ended their half-price burger Sundays, but luckily there are plenty of other local restaurants with similar promotions that gave us an easy alternative. But Sun. July 5, Rue is starting something we can really get excited about: half-price Sushi Sundays.

All day every Sunday, you can order one of the eight classic rolls from Rue’s menu — prices average around $6, so we’re talking a good deal here. Options include the California Roll,

Salmon & Cream Cheese Roll, Eel & Avocado Roll, Spicy Tuna Roll, Veggie Roll, Shrimp Roll, House Cured Duck Roll, and Rainbow Roll. The deal is supposed to last through the summer, and possibly longer, depending on the response.

Sitting on Rue’s shady patio, noshing on sushi, sipping some white wine … We can’t imagine a better way to spend a lazy summer Sunday.
