Best deals this week: elegant fare and cocktails for under $25

Since I have left you without a "best deal" for the last two weeks, here are several at Rocca Kitchen and Bar in Boston. To summarize: You can get quite the booze buzz from $20, and brunch for $5. Here's how:

$20 Pitcher of Dark and Stormy: When Zach first introduced me to this cocktail, I really didn't think I would enjoy it - but now it's one of my favorite booze-infused beverages. Dark rum and ginger beer, baby - and you can get a pitcher at Rocca for a mere $20. (Seven nights a week, with sames hours as the 5@5 appetizer deal - see below).

$22 for supper on Sundays (starting March 28th): From 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Sundays, you can order three courses for $22. The choices are basically salad, pasta, and dessert (pistachio cannoli, anyone?).

5@5 - Five Appetizers for $5 each: Seven nights a week at the bar from 5 to 6:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. to close, Rocca serves up appetizers like honey-glazed chicken wings, burgers with fontina and pesto mayonnaise, and cauliflower fritti with anchovy aioli.

$5 Bloody Marys, Mimosas & Brunch Snacks: Every Sunday starting at noon, Rocca offers bloody marys and bellinis (Prosecco made with blood orange, peach or pear) for five bucks. Brunch snacks are also sold for $5, with options like Pizzetta Chicchi-richi (egg, pancetta and roasted tomatoes); Fully Loaded Patatine Fritte (with pesto, three cheeses and tomato); and mixed greens with herb and citrus vinaigrette.

Talk about upscale, elegant dining (and drinking) for under $25, all across the board.
