Grey May Gone (email of 5/30/17)
May 30th, 2017

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
The holiday weekend on the coast saw a chilly start to the summer season, but many folks found their way back to Maine from warmer climes to the south nevertheless, opening summer cottages or merely getting out and about. More than a few fireplaces and woodstoves fired up this cool and windy weekend that evoked more kite-flying March than mild-mannered May. . . .
Though cool and grey and sometimes soggy look to be the watchwords of the week, yet Chef Ray Franklyn has got some culinary sunshine up his sleeve that will surely set you smilin’!
Wednesday Special
This week’s $19.99 Wednesday Special will start with a cumin carrot soup, setting a up supper-time sojourn south of the border. That little lingual journey continues in the main course with spicy local fish tacos, including napa cabbage, pico de gallo and mango tartar sauce in a corn tortilla. Dessert will be a mocha cake with orange cream cheese frosting, the mere thought of which is quite sufficient to start the salivary glands futilely attempting to do their digestive duty.
Friday Night Jazz June 2, 2017
Guitar jazz returns to the New Space on June’s first Friday in the capable hands of Dave Clarke, multi-talented mid-coast music maker and entrepreneur. Come see and hear Dave and his guitar this Friday night 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 a cool grey May is finally giving way to what we hope will be a better June!
Pia & Will Neilson, Owners




Mothers’ Day, Malecon & More
May 16th, 2017

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
May it may be – the second week no less – but it may not feel like May, and indeed it does not! Mothers’ Day is in the offing – and Solo Bistro will be serving brunch again to help celebrate the mothers in our lives.
We are clearly still on a roundabout route to summer, one that seems to have taken us by way of England, weather-wise at least. Perhaps that’s what has put Chef Franklyn in mind of an English classic for this week’s Wednesday Special . . . .
Wednesday Special
This week’s $19.99 Wednesday Special begins with a soup of spring-dug parsnips from Squire Tarbox Farm on Westport Island, decorated with a delightful dollop of spiced cream. The main course – which will be a Maine course as well, this being Solo Bistro – will conjure jolly old England from our own grey skies and fog, not to mention local Gulf of Maine hake, and local beer to create a classic fish and chips dinner – beer-battered hake deep-fried as served with handcut fries, a carrot-asparagus slaw and house-made green onion tartar sauce. And for dessert, an orange cake topped with whipped cream on a rhubarb coulis, a metaphorical sunset on a plate to bring the evening to a close!
Friday Night Jazz May 12, 2017
And speaking of grey, a couple of grey haired guys, or in Spanish, Dos Canosos, will be coming by the New Space on Friday to lighten up the atmosphere with some Latin jazz, bringing a bit of Havana and Rio home to Bath. Scholar-musician Gary Wittner will bring his guitar, and his longtime bestie, Raul Freyre will bring his panoply of percussive instruments, plus his voice and perhaps his 3 string Cuban guitar, the tres. Dos Canosos is one of the favorite acts we have for Friday Night Jazz, so come on down to Solo to soak up a (forecast) sunset along the Malecon of the Midcoast, the Copacabana of the Kennebec, Bath’s own Commercial Street Waterfront Park, then settle into a delicious dinner mere steps away with the rhythms and sounds of sunny southern climes, this Friday night from 6:30 to 9:30 PM.
As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where the cosmopolitan is culinarily close at hand!
Pia & Will Neilson, Owners
