Daffy Groundhog Day
February 2nd, 2016

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:

While Punxatawny Phil has apparently predicted an early spring, our dooryard daffodils have done the same and beat him to the punch by making their appearance above the mulch yesterday! Unlike the aforementioned Phil, they cannot retreat, and one wonders if they won’t find themselves a bit freezer burned before we’re done with winter. Commercial kitsch has accustomed us to “Christmas in July,” but Easter in Epiphany . . . ?

In any event, it looks like a wet and warm-ish Wednesday evening awaiting us tomorrow, and happily Chef Franklyn will be here to meet it with another edition of the weekly 3 course $17.99 Wednesday Special!

Wednesday Special


This week’s Wednesday Special will start with locally- and hydroponically-grown greens from Lisbon, with a little taste of the Caribbean littoral in the form of a cilantro lime vinaigrette. The main course will be a Mexican-inspired chili, with all natural beef, dried beans from Dresden, plus some not-to-nearby ancho peppers, tomatoes and southwestern spices, all served over basmati rice. The denouement of this delicious dinner will be a thematically consistent coconut cake, covered in a pineapple crème anglaise that risks reducing one to tears, so sweet, so juste, a conclusion it will bring to this exotic epicurean evening. And for only $17.99 — utterly exceptional!

Friday Night Jazz, February 5, 2016

Singer Sue Sheriff returns to the New Space at Solo to lock up the hearts of diners this Friday in the company of her guitar-playing deputy, Peter Blue. “Sue ‘n Blue” for Friday Night Jazz from 6:30 to 9:30 PM!

As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where gun-jumpin’ jonquils are just part of the parade of life the way it should be!

Among the Revenants
February 2nd, 2016

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:

Like theGovernator, the
Beatles, and General MacArthur, not to mention Leonardo DiCaprio, Solo Bistro has returned, and with it the world famous and utterly inimitable 3 course $17.99 Wednesday Special!

Wednesday Special

From Chef Ray Franklyn to you, a welcome-back Wednesday Special, starting with a simple salad of local greens dressed in a white balsamic vinaigrette. From there it’s on to flounder piccata, fresh from the Gulf of Maine, and lightly sautéed in butter and lemon juice with capers. The flounder will be accompanied by Dresden’s best organic carrots from Jan and Rob at Goranson Farm, roasted to a sweet perfection, together with house made butter and cream mashed potatoes! For dessert, a little something of the sun Chef Franklyn has enjoyed over the winter break in joyful Jamaica – to wit, a delicious slice of orange cheese cake, topped with a pomegranate sauce. It’ll rival the rosiest of August sunsets right there on your plate inthe midst this lugubrious late-January thaw! A consummation devoutly to be wished, and, unlike poor Hamlet’s sorely sought release, oh-so-available right here on the shores of the mighty Kennebec!

Friday Night Jazz, January 29, 2016

Friday Night Jazz returns as well, with a prince of a jazz pianist, Mick Felder, accompanying the lovely Lorna Prescott as she sings with soul of affairs of the heart and mind to the delight of downtown diners in the dead of winter! Don’t miss ’em — right here at Solo Bistro this Friday, January 29, 2016!

As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where Hamlet’s Helsingør is far removed from happy, hungry customers queuing to consume the finest cuisine this side of Seguin in the re-opened and refurbished Solo Bistro! Welcome back!


Pia & Will Neilson, Owners
