Hockamock High
October 1st, 2014

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:

There is something about farewells that distills and intensifies the emotions of a relationship or a time, rounding the sharp corners and smoothing the ragged edges of the reality. The joyful reception on Sunday by Boston fans of Derek Jeter’s RBI single in the final at-bat of his 20 year career as a Yankee might be an example. Or perhaps the stunning reprise of summer we enjoyed last weekend might be another, a final boat ride and a valedictory drift along Hockamock Head, casting in vain under the cliffs for striped bass that seemed already to have left, while the sun bathed the granite, pines and scrub in watercolor washes of yellow, orange and pink; a poignant parting all the more piquant for its unexpectedness . . . .

But though a particularly splendid September has now run its lovely course, Solo Bistro will stay its own course for quality and value, proudly flying the flag of the famous $17.99 Wednesday Special as we sail on into the gales to come!

Wednesday Special

October’s inaugural 3 course $17.99 Wednesday Special, will begin with a salad of summer greens still in good supply and dressed in a roasted shallot vinaigrette. The main course will be mussels with fennel and capers in a garlic, wine and butter sauce over bucatini. For dessert, a square of lemon cheese cake with a drizzle of raspberry puree topped with whipped cream! Some good!
Friday Night Jazz October 3

Guitar duo Juliane Gardner and Chris Poulin return to the New Space at Solo Bistro from their base in the Castine/Orland area. Juliane and Chris have been playing, performing and composing together since they were undergraduates in the UMA jazz program nearly twenty years ago. They tend to play classic and blues-inflected jazz, and this Friday, October 3, they’ll be at it from 6:30 – 9:30 PM right here in Bath!

As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where singing the seasonal blues sometimes strikes a chord!

California Dreamin’
September 24th, 2014

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:

Fall finally officially arrived late last night, and we continue to enjoy a stretch of weather so fine as to risk engendering a Southern Californian indifference to fine weather. Unlike California, however, we have had sufficient precipitation punctuating the good periods to (a) keep grass growing lushly even as the leaves begin to dry out and change color, and (b) to warn us of the fallacy of such presumption here in northern New England.

Though the weather will certainly be fickle again before long, Solo Bistro will remain constant in its pursuit of great food at a great price, not least by means of the famous $17.99 Wednesday Special!

Wednesday Special


For this post-equinoctial $17.99 Wednesday Special, Chef Franklyn goes to the iconic foods of fall. The first course will be a curried pumpkin bisque, to be followed by a main of mushrooms, shallots, roasted squash and bacon in a sage cream sauce over bucatini pasta with a walnut gremolata. For dessert, an apple cranberry cake with caramel sauce and whipped cream will finish up the first prix fixe of fall.

Friday Night Jazz September 26

Gary Wittner returns with his guitar and his encyclopedic knowledge of the jazz canon for your listening and dining pleasure in the New Space at Solo Bistro this Friday, September 26, from 6:30 – 9:30 PM.

As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where fine fall weather feels like far more of a fixture than it is, for sure!


Pia & Will Neilson, Owners
