Fully scheduled . . .
September 20th, 2016

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
The fall is well launched in all but weather. Schools are settled back into term-time schedules with sports and studies, folks are back at work, and organizations from churches to chambers of commerce are likewise restarting regular routines. It is an intensely busy time of year, full of to-ing and fro-ing among the many obligations of modern life.
Happily, however, the hurly-burly has a few sidetracks at which one can hop off and take a little refreshment – and few of those hold more promise than Solo Bistro on a Wednesday evening, when $17.99 will get the Wednesday Special for the hungry, harried burghers of Bath, plus those of Brunswick and the Burg, among others! Be that as it may, the $17.99 Wednesday Special bears more-than-cursory examination for folks looking for a great deal on a great meal!
Wednesday Special
This week’s $17.99 Wednesday Special is a perfect pollock prix-fixe, in which an appetizer of Tarbox Farm head lettuce dressed in a roasted bell pepper vinaigrette will be followed by a plat principal of pan-seared pollock with puttanesca, crispy polenta, and grilled zucchini and eggplant. For dessert, an apple carrot cake with mulling spiced cream cheese frosting. Primo!

On Thursday night we will take part in the annual United Way Extra Helping promotion, in which participating restaurants donate a portion of the evening’s proceeds to the United Way. So come and enjoy, extravagantly!
Also on Thursday evening, the Ranked Choice Voting folks will be in the bar from 5:30, allowing you to elect your favorite appetizer in a demonstration of the how RCV works. Space is limited but available, so if you are interested in attending, sign up here.
Friday Night Jazz September 23, 2016
On Friday the lovely lounge singer Lorna Prescott will light up the night in the New Space with her lyrics while the magnificent Mickey Felder accompanies her on the keyboard. We’ll be carrying a torch for classic jazz this Friday from 6:30 to 9:30 PM!

As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where a little alliteration occasionally leads to a lot, but the food is flat-out fantastic!


Pia & Will Neilson, Owners




Of grace and gratitude
September 14th, 2016

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
An hour or so before sunset this evening the rising, soon-full moon and the setting sun were both set low and diametrically opposed in the clear dome of the sky, the warm yellow light ceding its dominion to night’s cool white, a symmetrical-seeming salute to each other from opposite sides of the heavenly arena. A momentary celestial metaphor for the annual slide from summer into fall, a sort of equinoctial equipoise,full of grace and beauty, tinged with poignant loss, and inescapably invoking the most graceful of our many emotions, gratitude.

And though in the larger scheme it is, perhaps, one of the lesser things for which to be thankful in this world, nonetheless the $17.99 Wednesday Special at Solo Bistro is not without some merit, especially at mealtime!

Wednesday Special
The $17.99 Wednesday Special this week starts off with Goranson greens with cucumbers, radishes, extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic reduction. That will be followed by butter basted cod tail served over a salad of Goranson purple string beans, feta and red onion with Tarbox Farm taters and maters – new potatoes roasted with herbs and dressed in a fennel tomato purée. Finally, for dessert, soup! Specifically a chilled soup of wild Maine blueberries and rhubarb preserve with a dollop of Chantilly cream. Indeed, a meal to make an indictment of ingratitude!

Friday Night Jazz September 16, 2016
While we’re on the theme of thankfulness, what better to be glad of than a pair of old, old friends who love to make music together, especially Latin jazz. Dos Canosos (Two Gray-Haired Guys) return to the New Space at Solo, in the form of percussionist and singer Raul Freyre, and the man who is Maine’s maestro of the jazz guitar, Gary Wittner. The mutual pleasure these men take in their company is manifest in their music, and will make your meal more memorable for the pleasure you will take in their music too. So come on out for Latin jazz on this last (and likely lovely) Art Walk Friday of 2016 from 6:30 to 9:30 PM, and live a little!

As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where we are always grateful for your company!

Pia & Will Neilson, Owners
