And they’re off . . . .
July 1st, 2015

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:

After a Sunday storm more autumnal than estival, we have arrived at July! Smokey’s Greater Shows are assembling the rides and midway, and Solo Bistro has resumed seven-nights-a-week dinner service. The horses of summer are in the starting gates; and with Thursday’s opening of Heritage Days, they’ll be out and thundering down the down the track! Bring it on!

Chef Franklyn and his team are definitely bringing it – both to the Chili and Chowder Fest on Sunday July 5 and to tomorrow’s famous 3-course $17.99 Wednesday Special!

Wednesday Special


This week’s first course will be a farm lettuce salad with orange-herb vinaigrette. The main course will be Boston Bay jerk chicken – original jerk marinated chicken legs and thighs with a cabbage-carrot slaw and coconut rice. For dessert, the obligatory and delicious Fourth of July strawberry shortcake: local strawberries over house made shortcake topped with chantilly cream. Practically unpatriotic to pass up!

Friday Night Jazz July 3

Colorado-based jazz guitarist Sean McGowan is swinging through Maine on his national tour and will return to the New Space at Solo Bistro with artist and singer Andrea Antognoni this Friday. An assistant professor of music and director of the guitar program at the University of Colorado Denver, Sean is renowned as a master of the fingerstyle jazz guitar, and well worth a detour to hear. World class jazz joins world class cuisine this Friday at Solo Bistro from 6:30 to 9:30 PM!

As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where we don’t jerk around when it comes to good food!

Lightin’ it up!
June 24th, 2015

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:

School’s now out, the solstice has come, and like the sun, we are suspended at the apogee of our annual circuit, about to descend with rapidly accelerating momentum into the wild corkscrews and banks that constitute the economic thrill ride the hospitality industry calls summer on the coast of Maine (sort of like this)! From tonight we are open for dinner 7 nights a week!

Though we may still be in our brief pre-summer state of suspense, the local fireflies have already launched their nightly raves along the tree-lined verges of meadows and marshes, provoking each other to silent riots of bioluminescent bombast and bravado in their urgent need to meet and mate. A dull dog-walker, dutifully following the end-of-day routine, is left astonished at the extravagance of the sight of such frenetic fecundity . . . !

Of course the product of the vegetal version of that same fecundity is starting to make its way into our larders and onto our plates at home and here at Solo Bistro, including in the famous 3-course $17.99 Wednesday Special!

Wednesday Special


This week’s first course will be a spicy tomato soup with a fresh basil garnish. From there the Wednesday Special wends it way up the Kennebec to the Eastern River and thence to the Goranson Farm in Dresden. The main course will be a grilled shrimp and goat cheese salad with Goranson lettuce, turnips, radishes, and pickled red onion, dressed in a warm bacon vinaigrette. For dessert, Chef Franklyn will offer a lemon vanilla curd with fresh strawberries from Goranson as well.

Friday Night Jazz June 16 — Not!

Due to a special party this Friday there will be no jazz this week. General dinner service will continue in the main dining room and the bar.

As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where the lights of summer nights often illuminate more than the merely mundane!


Pia & Will Neilson, Owners
