Drifthouse is now offering affordable family-style meals on Sundays! And it's open to the public all year round.

Who doesn't love a good, old fashioned, pass-the-plate Sunday dinner? Well celebrity chef David Burke is now offering it up at his Sea Bright restaurant.

David Burke may be a rock star chef, but he hasn’t forgotten his Jersey roots. As a restaurateur he knows firsthand times are tough, so he has added a value-conscious menu without sacrificing quality at his restaurant Drifthouse by David Burke.

This prix fixe Sunday menu starts at 4 pm every Sunday. “Sunday Suppa” is a generously portioned three-course dinner menu served family-style for $35. It includes a choice of two dishes per course:

-- First Course - Burrata, Sunday Salad, Caesar Salad, Frito Misto, Mussels and Butter

-- Second Course – Skirt Steak, Lemon Chicken, Pork Chops, Sunday Fish (chef’s choice)

-- Included in the prix fixe is a traditional bowl of macaroni with choice of one sauce - red sauce, puttanesca, cacio e pepe, wild boar Bolognese, fra diavolo.

-- Dessert (choose one) - Epic Sundae, Broken Cannolis, Cake By The Ocean and Cheesecake Pops For 2.

You can add additional courses for $12 each. Also available with an additional supplement are a two-pound Lobster Arrabiata and 8-ounce Filet Mignon.

The Sunday Suppa menu pays tribute to the Stavola family’s Italian roots. The family has owned Driftwood Cabana Club, where Drifthouse is located, since 1957 and is Chef Burke’s partner with Drifthouse.

And while the beachfront location may be fancy, Chef Burke and the Stavola family want you to know that you can depend on Drifthouse for an enjoyable night out with your family without breaking the bank. And Sunday Suppa is a meal that would make their Italian Nonna proud.

Chef Burke has this message,

“Drifthouse has enjoyed much success over the past couple of years thanks to our loyal customers and the great press we have received. We are fighting through the Covid situation the best we can. I feel very confident that with our value-driven menus, our support of, and from, the community and with our continued positive outlook we will get through to the end of the year; and when the dust settles we’ll be right back on top again. And don’t forget, we have plenty of space for holiday lunch and dinner parties.
