This little piggy went to Solo
May 19th, 2015

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:

Signs of summer are multiplying . . . . Dandelions and docks are sprouting left and right. Mooring balls are bobbing on the rivers and bays, and boats will not be far behind. Road crews are out, rushing on priority projects that they hope to finish before the tourists arrive to clog the vehicular arteries.

And speaking of arteries, this week’s famous $17.99 Wednesday Special at Solo Bistro would certainly be a hit with Jack Sprat’s spouse!

Wednesday Special


This week’s Wednesday Special will begin with a local seaweed salad, dressed in a carrot, daikon and sesame vinaigrette. The main course will be miso-roasted pork belly with bok choy, hard-boiled egg, and jasmine rice in a tamari ginger broth. Dessert will be a fudge brownie with a strawberry coulis and whipped cream!

Friday Night Jazz May 22

Due to graduations this weekend, Friday Night Jazz will be furloughed, but it will return a week hence!

As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where passionate partisans of pork belly can partake of their preferred provender without reproof!


Pia & Will Neilson, Owners




Sweet May
May 12th, 2015

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:

Abruptly the trees have leafed. Coming westbound across the Sagadahoc Bridge on Friday, the Bath skyline had just a blush of green and red, a water color wash across the lattice of twig and branch. But by Monday, a canopy of solid green had spread among the rooftops and spires rising on the river’s western side; the city restored and resplendent in its emerald summer raiment!

And speaking of splendor, when it comes to eating, few and far between are foods which feature the fabulous price/value proposition of the famous $17.99 Wednesday Special at Solo Bistro! For sure!

Wednesday Special

This week’s Wednesday Special will start out with splendid spicy greens from the Tarbox Farm on Westport Island, organic and deliciously dressed in a bacon-scallion vinaigrette. That will be followed by bourride, a Mediterranean fish stew with leeks, fennel, tomatoes, turnips and saffron with grilled focaccia and garlic aioli. Perhaps future food historians will speak of Chef Ray Franklyn’s “B Period” as art historians do of Picasso’s Blue Period, but it is early yet to say, as it will have but begun only last week with birria, and now progressed to bourride . . . . Keep your eye on this spot for potential history in the making!

Dessert will again be that paragon of opposite-yet-complimentary flavors, a lemon vanilla curd with honey soaked rhubarb! Sweet honey and vanilla in a seasonal swing-dance with rhubarb and lemon – some good!

Friday Night Jazz May 15

Vocalist Molly Pitcher returns to the New Space at Solo with guitarist Dave Clark to make a little music for your meal at this midpoint of the month of May, when life is coursing with such flight, that we can mark the increase of the leaves ’twixt morning and the night! Pitcher and Clark, this Friday from 6:30 to 9:30 PM at Solo Bistro!

As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where “We in thought will join your throng/ Ye that pipe and ye that play/ Ye that through your hearts today/ Feel the gladness of the May!” (William Wordsworth, Ode. Intimations of Immortality, lines 176-179).

Pia & Will Neilson, Owners
