Tapas Tuesday Tomorrow!
February 20th, 2017

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
It Tapas Tuesday time again! Tomorrow night we return to our once-a-winter-month Tuesday small-plate specials. Hot and cold dishes give a variety of flavors and amounts, PLUS Chef Ray Franklyn will be sending out single-bite amuse-bouches with each cocktail, glass of wine or beer ordered too. So sidle into Solo for a drink and anything from a free nibble to a serious nosh on Tapas Tuesday, tomorrow!
Wednesday Special
This week’s $19.99 Wednesday Special will lead with a soup of parsnips, apples and walnuts – a root-to-fruit strategy for presenting the pleasures of the plant kingdom. The main course, will be Cajun-sauteéd shrimp and sausage with chicory, Spanish rice and orange ginger sauce. To finish, a key lime square with berry coulis and whipped cream.
Where, or where might one possibly find such a creative palette deployed to please one’s personal palate, not to mention the eye and mind? A repast fit for prince, at a price approachable by even a perpetual pinchpenny!
Friday Night Jazz February 24, 2017
The philosopher-king of jazz musicians in Maine, Gary Wittner, returns this week with his guitar to entertain diners this Friday from 6:30 to 9:30 PM at Solo Bistro! If you love guitar jazz, “Don’t miss Gary Wittner” is all there is to say!
As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where snow banks may sometimes be a royal pain, but, if so, they serve only to cache the culinary crown jewels of our region!

Pia & Will Neilson, Owners




Springing into 2017
December 28th, 2016

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
A mere five days have passed since the solstice, but midday walkers today were in shirtsleeves as the mid-winter sun mustered an unwonted warmth more appropriate to March or April than December! No doubt that will change very shortly, but it fits with a sense of dislocation more generally as we come to the end of this year – the “time is out of joint” was Hamlet’s formulation. We are at an uneasy moment in history, which would seem at least to be a point of inflection toward something outside the experience and expectations of recent decades. Some think that is good, many the opposite, but the purportedly Chinese curse springs to mind . . . .
Of course, even in interesting times, one needs to eat, which brings us inescapably to the epitome of price-conscious consumption of premium comestibles, the Wednesday Special at Solo Bistro, where you get fresh and local food expertly prepared for the laughably low price of $17.99! Eat, and eat well to boot!
Wednesday Special
For the last Wednesday Special until we re-open on Wednesday February 8, 2017, Chef Ray Franklyn will start the meal with a salad of baby romaine lettuce from Springworks Farm in Lisbon, with a lemon Caesar dressing. The main dish will be a mushroom risotto featuring oyster and shitake mushrooms, shallots, cream, fines herbes, and goat cheese – a regular fungi fest!. Dessert will be a key lime curd with ginger blueberries and whipped cream.
Friday Night Jazz December 30, 2016
Dave Clark, jazz and classical guitarist, teacher and music store owner from Belfast, returns to the New Space at Solo to close out another year of Friday Night Jazz. Don’t miss it, from 6:30 to 9:30 PM this Friday evening at Solo Bistro!
If you do miss Dave Clark though (or even if you don’t miss him), don’t forget that you can still come New Year’s Eve to celebrate and enjoy a final dinner chez Solo for five weeks as we close for our annual winter break.
As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where imprecations fail to impress in the face of fine food, drink and fellowship. A happy 2017 to one and all – we look forward to seeing you again in February!

Pia & Will Neilson, Owners
