Solo Bistro





The Boys in the Band
March 21st, 2017

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
The first day of spring has sprung as the sun crossed the equator yesterday on its welcome way back north, and a lovely day indeed it was, notwithstanding the still-complete snow coverage from last week’s winter storm. Daylight savings time, in effect for only ten days so far, leaves one somewhat disoriented at the end of the day, when dinner seems to come too early – except, of course, on Wednesdays at Solo Bistro, where the Wednesday Special is always on time and on the money!
Wednesday Special
This week the $19.99 Wednesday Special will get off the mark with organic greens, dressed in a grainy mustard vinaigrette. Then comes that delicious duo, duck and pork, together in a cassoulet. Duck leg, bacon and sausage join white beans and carrots beneath an herbed panko breadcrumb crust. A crepe of chocolate, banana and Chantilly cream will put a wrap on the evening’s prandial pleasures.
Friday Night Jazz March 24, 2017
This week Solo Bistro will proudly host a musical reunion between New-Space-regular Dr. Barney Balch and his boyhood buddy Geoffrey Ives. These two go back to nursery school together, but haven’t played publicly together for forty years. Geoff, from Cornish, is a classically trained pianist with a passion for blues and jazz. By day, Barney Balch is a mild-mannered marine scientist studying the mysteries of minute planktonic biflagellated organisms called coccolithophores, but by night Barney becomes a boffo trombonist blowing big-band blandishments for the ears of jazz lovers lucky enough to hear him. Don’t miss these two, together again after 40 years, 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 old friends meet to eat and make music too!

Cats Cool & Philosophical
March 13th, 2017

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
The biting weekend winds and bitter temps are giving way to yet another round of unwanted winter precip. Tapas Tuesday is tomorrow, and again on April 11, a mere 5 days before the return of Solo Bistro’s lovely, and much longed-for Easter Brunch. But in the meantime, we can take to heart the good advice of a famous fictional feline philosophe, who said of inclement weather, “I know it is wet and the sun is not sunny, but we can have lots of good fun that is funny!” And on the list . . .
Wednesday Special
This Wednesday the $19.99 Special will start with a salad of that hardiest and healthiest of greens, the formerly humble kale, plus the most beautiful of radishes, the watermelon radish. Together they will be dressed in a delicious and fortifying mustard vinaigrette. A Solo “surf & turf” pasta will follow, combining ground lamb and shrimp in a spicy fra diavolo sauce, which will pick up where the mustard vinaigrette left off to generate a bit of heat on a wintry Wednesday in mid-March. Dessert will be a lemon curd and a compote of last summer’s blueberries — a little reminder of good things to come –topped with this winter’s fresh whipped cream.
Friday Night Jazz March 17, 2017
Speaking of good things coming, Ahmed Hassan Muhammad will be at the keyboard in the New Space on Friday – a cool kid from Brooklyn who went to Bowdoin College and stayed in the area, to the great good fortune of our ears and that which lies between them! Cool tunes from a cool guy in Maine’s Cool Little City this Friday from 6:30 to 9:30 PM at Solo Bistro. Faith and begorrah!
As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where it’s cool to be cold, and odd if you’re not, in this wintry week just before the sun crosses the Line on its way back to us!
