Of Luck and Lux (email of 5/23/17)
May 30th, 2017

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
Luxuriance looks to be the word of the day, as leafing out laves the hillsides of the lower Kennebec Valley in a lovely light green interspersed with licks of dark red, lawns lay carpets of lush verdure across the lived in landscapes of our homes, and the scent of lilac wafts on the wind. Pollen output may have peaked, mosquitoes have made their still-modest appearance, and no doubt where fresh water flows, black flies are already well into their ascendancy. With that of course, Memorial Day weekend must be at hand, as indeed it is!
With thoughts of summer simmering in the background, Chef Franklyn has got a little heat on his mind for this week’s Wednesday Special.
Wednesday Special
The first course of the $19.99 Wednesday Special this week will be a ginger and parsnip soup. The main course will be Cajun fish – pan seared Gulf of Maine pollock accompanied by dirty rice and pineapple salsa. And for dessert, a cornmeal cookie with mascarpone cheese and rhubarb jelly. Yum!
Friday Night Jazz May 26, 2017
The final Friday of May brings piano man Mickey Felder back to the New Space with his extensive repertoire of classic jazz. Mickey will provide the perfect entrée to a lovely long weekend and the longed-for summer waiting in the wings, 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 lingual luxuriance lingers unexpectedly, if not indefinitely, in this world of ephemeral beauty.
Pia & Will Neilson, Owners




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
