Spring Fever Special
May 15th, 2012

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:

 Notwithstanding nearly unanimous meteorological opinion to the contrary, today has turned into a very pleasant day indeed! Also notwithstanding objective, verifiable evidence very much to the contrary, such weather leads me to believe that I am sufficiently young and energetic to blow off the obligations of the day and go biking or gardening or some such activity and then catch up on the office work later. In a familiar victory of hope over reason, I shall uncharacteristically attempt brevity in the dubious belief that perhaps I’ll escape the office in time to do something outdoors this afternoon!

So in this spirit of magical thinking, we come to the epitome of grounded good sense — and taste — the 3-course $17.99 Wednesday Special!

Wednesday Special

This week’s $17.99 Wednesday Special begins with a salad of kale, a wonderful leafy green touted as providing all manner of healthful benefits, but which is certain at a minimum to taste better than most of the tonics touted in times past, especially when complimented with a creamy Dijon dressing as Chef Lavelle promises this one will be!.

The main course will be one of the few overtly vegetarian dishes I liked even as a child: eggplant parm over pasta, in this instance bucatini. For dessert, one of the glories of the spring garden, rhubarb, will send us head-over-heals in paroxysms of pleasure in the form of a rhubarb upside down cake!

For a wine special we’ll look to hills of east central Italy for a delightful Montepulciano d’ Abruzzo from Vigneti del Sole, a company founded in Verona in 1925 by two brothers who had moved north in search of their fortune and found success. The brothers’ grandchildren returned to their southern roots where they continue to make wines that just about max out the quality-to-price ratio. Only $5.00 a glass!

Friday Night Jazz May 18

This Friday we welcome back Mr. Ahmad Hassan Muhammad at the keyboard. There’s a great video of a radio broadcast Hassan did in 2010 with Rich Tozier on MPBN the fall after his graduation from Bowdoin highlighting his versatility as a musician and composer. There’s a much shorter promo for Bowdoin featuring a younger Hassan here in his freshman year. A man of prodigious talent, we are always glad when Ahmad Hassan Muhammad can fit Friday Night Jazz at Solo Bistro into his schedule as he has this Friday from 6:30 to 9:30 PM!

As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where one’s never too old to play hookey!

Announcing Lunch for Maine Restaurant Week
February 24th, 2012

We are excited to announce that during Maine Restaurant Week (Thursday March 1 through Saturday March 10) lunch service at Solo Bistro will resume for the first time in more than six years. Many of you have requested that we reinstate lunch, and indeed we have discussed it each spring since 2007. Thanks to the efforts of the good folks at gBritt PR, Restaurant Week is a time when many people are focused on dining out, and it seems like this might be an opportune moment to see how lunch might work out.

 Solo Bistro has never had more talent in the kitchen than we have now, and we have never been as organizationally robust as we are now, so we’ll give it a go. We hope you’ll stop by for lunch (and dinner too!) during Maine Restaurant Week and let us know what you think. We’ll be serving lunch from 11:30 to 2 each day during Restaurant Week except Sunday and Monday.

You can check out our Restaurant Week menus by clicking here. We’ll still be running our regular three course $24.99 and $17.99 Wednesday Specials, too!

Hope to see you during Restaurant Week — we tasted the seared tuna option tonight, and it was fabulous!
