Happy Independence Day
August 4th, 2015

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:

Chef Franklyn informs us that Thursday is Jamaican Independence Day, so Solo Bistro will be celebrating all week with Jamaican specials. There will be rundown (a savory coconut pudding with vegetables and herbs), jack fruit salsa, jerked meats and fish – much to look forward to for folks who love to try a variety of foods, including in the famous 3 course $17.99 Wednesday Special!

Wednesday Special


The Jamaican Independence edition of the $17.99 Wednesday Special will start with a cabbage and carrot soup, garnished with chives and scallion. That will be followed by gen-u-ine Jamaican jerk chicken. Providing a counterpoint for the spicy chicken will be deep-fried ripe plantains, mango aioli, and a little farm lettuce salad. For dessert, coconut cake with chocolate whipped cream. Enough to turn any red-blooded spicy food lover into a Jamaican patriot-for-a-day!

Friday Night Jazz August 7

Gary Wittner returns to the New Space at Solo on Friday, with his guitar, his encyclopedic knowledge of Thelonious Monk’s work as transcribed for guitar – most notably by Gary himself – and a love of jazz that cannot help but communicate itself to his listeners! A class act to kick off the month — Gary Wittner at Solo Bistro, 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 independently-minded meet to eat!


Pia & Will Neilson, Owners




Hot time, summer in the city!
July 29th, 2015

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:

This is the time of year when echoes of the Lovin’ Spoonful’s sixties summer anthem spontaneously emerge from the further recesses of the mind. Summer in Maine is nothing like the mid-atlantic summers in which that track was laid down in this correspondent’s long term memory, but everything is relative, so even a little sticky heat suffices to ring that particular Pavlovian bell . . . .

Of course, Pavlov used that bell to signal dinner, and when it comes to dinners, few stimuli will start a sapient hominid salivating quicker than the famous 3-course $17.99 Wednesday Special at Solo Bistro, especially one devoted to the value of a dollar!

Wednesday Special


A farm salad with a creamy goat cheese dressing will kick of the $17.99 Wednesday Special this week. That will be followed by a Gulf of Maine cioppino, a stew of mussels, fish and fingerling potatoes in a tomato broth. For dessert, a key lime bar with local blueberries will fill the bill!

Friday Night Jazz July 31 – NOT

A private party in the New Space this week will supplant the regular rotation of Friday Night Jazz, but it will return next week!

As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where the dinner bell tolls for you!


Pia & Will Neilson, Owners
