Vigor, vengeance and Valentine’s
February 10th, 2016

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
Winter has returned with vigor – and perhaps even vengeance, if the Valentine’s weekend forecasts are to be believed! Fortunately, Solo Bistro will happily provide suitable sustenance for shovellers, including lubrication for stiff muscles, creaky joints and cranky, cabin-fevered dispositions, not to mention placating parsimonious personalities, particularly on Wednesdays, with prices more appropriate to prefabricated provender than to the primo plates produced by Chef Ray Franklyn!

And speaking of Wednesdays . . . .

Wednesday Special
This week’s $17.99 Wednesday Special will feature again the really good organic greens grown by Springworks Farm in Lisbon in their closed aquaponic system that combines a fish farm and a hydroponic vegetable farm. The succulent green salad from this fascinating farming venture will be deliciously dressed in an herb vinaigrette. Next up will be a stew of rosemary-roasted chicken, leeks, spinach and potatoes, a main course which in the midst of a New England winter will do as well as any ambrosia of the gods of warmer climes! On the topic of ambrosia, it is also noteworthy that a carrot cake clad in classic cream cheese frosting will close the evening out! Such stuff as (sweet, sweet) dreams are made on . . . .

Friday Night Jazz, February 12, 2016
Though “Sue ‘n Blue,” got snowed out last week, this week’s Friday Night Jazz is forecast to be free of frozen precip, if not of freezing temps. Solo New Space veteran Titus Abbott will come not only with his saxophone, but also with his keyboard — which we have not heard him play before, if memory serves. Plus New Space newcomer Tyler Heydolf will accompany Titus on the bass. Abbott & Heydolf – hot hands at cool jazz on a frigid Friday this week from 6:30 to 9:30 PM!

As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where fine food and drink keeps folks fairly unflappable in the face of fickle weather!

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!


Pia & Will Neilson, Owners
