Tire-some Time
December 7th, 2016

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
So a little sticking snow has glazed our ways and finally made it feel like winter is staking its claim to our attention. Those of us who have yet to mount their snow tires have been pointedly reminded of their oversight, and up at Cahill’s Tires the annual parade of procrastinators is peaking in the parking lot and waiting room. ’Tis certainly the season!
Of course, when winter’s chill sets in, a peckish person’s thoughts inevitably turn to hearty fare, and so too do those of one whose purpose is precisely to provide such provender as peckish persons prefer. If it’s Wednesday, and the purposeful provider in question is Chef Ray Franklyn, you know the $17.99 Wednesday Special at Solo Bistro will punch way above its weight – and puny price!
Wednesday Special
This week’s $17.99 Wednesday Special will begin with a winter salad of raw butternut squash, beets, and frisée in a cranberry honey vinaigrette. The main course will put paid to the wintery weather with a harissa-spiced chili of beef, pork, tomatoes and onions, served over basmati rice and garnished with cilantro sour cream. Ginger cake drizzled with orange caramel and topped with whipped cream will finish the meal with a flourish of flavor!
Friday Night Jazz December 9, 2016
Piano-man Mickey Felder will play the New Space at Solo again this Friday with his usual polish and panache, a perfect postlude to downtown Bath’s annual Holiday Open House! Mickey will be performing from 6:30 to 9:30 for your enhanced prandial pleasure.
As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where we mind our p’s and q’s, or at least our p’s.


Pia & Will Neilson, Owners




Twilight Time
November 30th, 2016

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
Vampire weather for the next few days it would seem — cool, wet and without sun. A walk in the woods will show that the mosses and lichens are liking it though, after a long season of short water-rations. It’s the kind of weather in which a well-stoked wood stove and a good book are high on the list of priorities – perhaps higher than a visit to a restaurant . . .
That said, one’s got to eat, and when it comes to eating, few folks can fault the food prepared by Chef Ray Franklyn, especially when he’s looking to tempt folks away from the fireside! But that’s what he is doing – launching a new menu this week, in addition to a particularly tasty $17.99 Wednesday Special that will flush even hide-bound hibernators from their comfortable dens!
Wednesday Special
This week’s $17.99 Wednesday Special will start with spicy tomato soup to soften the sodden chill. The soup will be succeeded by a savory seafood scampi – haddock, mussels and octopus sautéed in butter with lemon juice, parsley and, of course, sufficient garlic to send a vampire packing with its thirst unslaked – served over wilted spinach couscous. Dessert will be a walnut olive oil cake with a butternut squash coulis, and a whipped-cream dollop.
Friday Night Jazz December 2, 2016
A giant among jazz guitarists, Gary Wittner, returns to the New Space to give a little sonorous special sauce to your supper at Solo Bistro, this Friday from 6:30 to 9:30 PM. The good stuff!

As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where you can always get a refill if it feels like circumstances are sucking you dry!

Pia & Will Neilson, Owners
