Wet Ones
April 25th, 2017

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
Another wet Wednesday appears in store this week, as April wends its way toward May. Spring is settling in, and it won’t be long before the mowers mobilize again to moderate the unruly luxuriance of local lawns. The maple tree blooms behind the restaurant are blown, and just in the course of Monday’s sunny afternoon the buds began to burst, unfurling the flags of spring for sure. In such a season, a wet Wednesday or two cannot be begrudged – particularly when one’s options for distraction from a deluge include the $19.99 Solo Bistro Wednesday Special that delivers so much for so little!
Wednesday Special
This week Chef Ray Franklyn takes his inspiration for the Wednesday special from the Far East. The appetizer will be local sugar kelp in a salad with shredded carrots and onions in a sesame chili vinaigrette. The main course will be soba noodles in ramen broth with bok choy, celery, sweet peppers and toasted cashews. Dessert will be a house-made orange ice cream. Yum!
Friday Night Jazz April 28, 2017
Jesse Feinberg and his keyboard were advertised for last week, but due to a scheduling fail, it was actually the great jazz guitarist Gary Wittner, to whom we apologize for the oversight. The good news is that it’s actually this week that Jesse performs for Friday Night Jazz. So celebrate spring with piano jazz this Friday night at Solo Bistro from 6:30 to 9:30 PM!
As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where you can find fine food and drink in fair weather and foul!
Pia & Will Neilson, Owners




Not Crawfish Pie . . .
April 24th, 2017

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
The peepers predicted last week made their presence known that very night, and by the time we got to Sunday’s 80+ degrees, they were raising a ruckus to wake the dead. Those same temperatures sent daffodil blooms bursting forth from the confinement of their papery shrouds, and catkins cascading from tree branch tips, while buds everywhere swelled with an almost unseemly urgency. The generalized jumping-for-joy of the natural world may subside slightly as the mercury slips back to seasonable, but the trend is unmistakable, undeniable and utterly welcome!
Mother’s Day Brunch is now coming into view on the horizon, a mere four weeks away, — not too soon to secure your place at the table, so to speak! In the meantime, there will be the usual parade of appetizing options for the omnivorous, the picky and even the parsimonious, especially on Wednesdays!
Wednesday Special
This week the Wednesday special will begin with the aquaponic produce of Springworks of Lisbon in the form of greens graced with radishes and a champagne vinaigrette. The main course will be a chicken and sausage jambalaya with creole spices, celery and onion over basmati rice – unbeatable! Dessert will be a cornmeal cookie with orange segments and whipped cream! Son of gun, we’ll have good fun!
Friday Night Jazz April 21, 2017
Jesse Feinberg and his keyboard return to the New Space this week for a little post-tax tension release. Let it all go with great food and great jazz this Friday night at Solo Bistro from 6:30 to 9:30 PM!
As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where chères amie-o’s meet to eat and the good life gets better.
Pia & Will Neilson, Owners
