Back in the Saddle
January 21st, 2015

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:

The kitchen has been deep-cleaned, the jatoba floors oiled, and Chef Ray Franklyn and his staff are chopping, dicing, mixing, baking, braising, simmering and generally cooking up a storm in the kitchen ahead of tomorrow night’s re-opening for 2015. We’ll be running a short schedule to begin with – dinner Wednesday through Saturday from 5 PM, and brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 to 2. Weekday lunch service will return gradually, as demand picks up – so let us know if you’re missing lunch!

Of course with our re-opening the world famous $17.99 Wednesday Special will once again resume its rightful place in the firmament of primo prix fixe promotions!

Wednesday Special
Chef Ray Franklyn begins another year of healthy, varied and very reasonably priced offerings with a Dresden Maine dinner of goat from Dragonfly Cove Farm stewed with organic root vegetables and kale from Goranson Farm in a saffron tomato sauce. The goat will be preceded by a salad of spinach and green goddess dressing, and succeeded by a coconut and chia seed pudding with apple compote. The Internet tells us chia seeds fight everything from belly fat to bad moods, and that’ll be more than enough excuse for this correspondent to chow down on dessert!

Friday Night Jazz January 23

Flash and Tina Allen return to the New Space at Solo to start the new year’s series of great jazz. Flash is pretty much a piano polymath who tickles the ivories while spouse Tina sings classics with panache. Take advantage of the week’s promised settled weather to strike a blow against premature cabin fever this Friday from 6:30 to 9:30 PM.

As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where the exotic sometimes floors the pedestrian!


Pia & Will Neilson, Owners




Nosing into the New Year
December 30th, 2014

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:

We bid farewell to an underperforming 2014 this week, though with some encouraging economic news to buoy hopes for 2015! In the short term, rampant rhinovirus promises some runny-nosed revelry while it wreaks its respiratory mischief around the region . . . .

New Year’s Eve will pre-empt the 3 Course $17.99 Wednesday Special, but will provide another opportunity to enjoy the sounds of the inimitable master of the jazz guitar, Gary Wittner, along with a variety of festive specials and sparkling wines from affordable choices by the glass to some really special Champagnes to satisfy all tastes. Toast 2015 at Solo tomorrow, or at brunch thereafter – we’ll be serving it from 10:30 to 2. Thursday through Sunday!

Dinner will continue through Saturday, then following brunch on Sunday we will close for two and half weeks for annual maintenance and a little R&R. We return for dinner on Wednesday January 21 at 5:30 PM, where once again the $17.99 Wednesday Special will resume its rightful place as the preeminent prix fixe on the planet!

Friday Night Jazz January 2

Sue ‘n Blue kick off 2015’s first Friday Night Jazz in the New Space at Solo. Sue Sheriff sings jazz classics with Pete Blue on the guitar. An urbane evening of great food and great jazz to wind down the holiday hoopla from 6:30 to 9:30 PM this Friday.

As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where relatively restrained revelry is the rule from year to year!


Pia & Will Neilson, Owners
