Calendrical Coincidence
December 21st, 2016

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
Like the so-called super moon of a month or so ago, a super holiday week looms just over the horizon, with Christmas Eve and the first night of Hanukkah co-incident for the first time in decades. And both coincide with the secular weekend as well, with Christmas and New Year’s Day on successive Sundays and Hanukkah bridging the gap between. Here at Solo Bistro, it also means we lose only one night of our regular schedule – Saturday the 24th – when we would otherwise be open. And as long as we’re looking ahead, New Year’s Eve is filling up, so make your reservation for the end of the coming hyper holiday week sooner rather than later!
In the meantime, the $17.99 Wednesday Special continues to bring exceptional dishes to diners at an exceptional price!
Wednesday Special
This pre-holiday week the $17.99 Wednesday Special opens with a Springworks Salad: baby romaine grown in Springworks’ aquaponic farming facility in Lisbon, with grated parmesan and lemon caesar dressing. The main course will come from the eastern shore of the Kennebec in Dresden, in the form of a stew of slow-braised Dragonfly Cove goat, carrots, potatoes and curry spices served over basmati rice. For dessert, a butterscotch pudding topped with whipped cream will delight even the most demanding pudding pundits present!
Friday Night Jazz December 23, 2016
Flash and Tina Allen return to the New Space with their voices and his keyboard to turn up the tunes in an evening of syncopated sophistication with songs from the jazz canon supplementing sumptuous suppers and superb sips supplied by distinguished distillers, brewers and vintners from around the globe. Satisfy your appetite for fine food, funk and classic jazz from 6:30 to 9:30 PM this Friday evening at Solo Bistro!
As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where the congruence of taste and timing is more-than-merely coincidental!

Pia & Will Neilson, Owners




Lightin’ Up
December 14th, 2016

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
Well, winter winds are whistling through the leafless, lifeless limbs, and the season seems in sync again with the calendar. The moon is most severe this time of year, it’s white light bright and breathtakingly beautiful, reflected by the white snow in the fields and woods and marshes, making of the world a marvelous mausoleum, all alabaster and white marble. Coming across the Kennebec on these cold, early nights, the length of Bath along the far shore is lit with luminous, multi-colored finery for the holidays someone in the city government wisely selected to testify to warmth and welcome in the midst of winter’s rigid, frigid splendor.
Solo Bistro is proud to be one part of that warm welcome, and never more so than on Wednesdays, when Chef Ray Franklyn’s $17.99 Wednesday Special evokes its own chorus of hallelujahs from time to time.
Wednesday Special
This week the $17.99 Wednesday Special starts out with a soup of local winter squash, topped with walnut gremolata. That will be followed by a plate of pan-seared Statler chicken breast, sautéed kale, horseradish mashed potatoes and red romesco sauce. The final course of caramel mousse with whipped cream may itself inspire a sweet hosanna or two from devotees of dessert!
Friday Night Jazz December 16, 2016
Ahmad Hassan Mohammed returns on Friday with his keyboard, ready to render classics and compositions of his own with a warmth and verve that make him a musical analogue to those multi-colored orbs so bravely bedecking the branches of trees now bereft of their natural raiment. Great, glad, jazz from one of the bright lights of Maine’s modern musical milieu, from 6:30 to 9:30 PM this Friday at Solo Bistro!
As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where winter weather is no match for holiday hospitality!

Pia & Will Neilson, Owners
